I just had the same problem. The door lock wires have clips so unless you uncliped them that would not be the problem. It should be listed in the reset error code section, but I would suggest performing the system error check first before clearing the error.
Step 1 go to
Step 2 click on CUSTOMER SERVICE on top of page
Step 3 go to PRODUCT MANUALS and click on DOWNLOADS
Step 4 type in MODEL NUMBER and click on search
Step 5 your error code information is in the TECH DATA file there you can perform a full system check PLEASE READ ALL WARNINGS POSTED
Step 6 save all PDF files to a new folder name it FRIGIDARE for easy availbility.
Thank you and good luck.

Temperature lights out, water panel in door lights out, no water being dispensed

I assume this refrigerator was working. The sporadic water dispensing is usually a dirty water filter or air in the waterline;but after pulling off the kick board and cleaning,assuming again, the water connector, everything stopped working on the door. At the refrigerator door bottom near the bottom hinge there should be an electrical connector(s) This makes me think you may have dislodged or loosened the connections. This powers everything on the door.
The dispenser may be in "locked".To reset, press and hold lock control for 3 seconds. Another thing to try, if these don't work, is to unplug refrigerator for about 20 seconds, then plug it back in. Electronics sometimes get lost and this will often reset them.
And good luck,

I suspect you have some broken wires in the wire bundle that feeds the dispenser system in the door. Look behind the kickplate ate the bottom hinge for the freezer door. There is a black mesh covering the wires to the dispenser components. Unplug the refrigerator and see if the wires are broken inside that mesh.

My oven door shows locked. this happened when i tried to clean oven. the door will open but shows locked. how do i clear the door locked?

The board is either confused and you can just unplug this unit and let it sit for 30 minutes then plug in and reset. its possible, it will be okay....or did you actually clean the oven and the door opens , but lock light is lit? if this is the case and it cleaned, and you can open the door. I'dsay you have a problem in door latch to door light switch causing this condition

The paper won't feed through the printer- anything I can do for that?

Clean & inspect: Unload the paper stock. Turn printer off & unplug its power cord. Open the rear access door by pressing the tab on its left edge towards the right as you swing the door out. Remove & discard any jammed &/or crumpled objects. Clean, turn, & inspect the rollers with a soft towel that has been lightly moistened with water. Rollers that do not turn freely could require replacement.
Prepare printer for use: Restack & reload the paper stock into the paper supply tray, but do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. Reattach the rear access door by lining up the two pins on right side with their respective holes (near the ports for power & USB connections) & swing the door back into place—pressing gently but firmly until it locks into place. Reconnect the power cord & turn the printer on.

My water despenser started pouring water out on its own. could ony get it stop buy opening door and using the dispenser's lock mechenism why does this happen?

In this case I believe that the switch in the press switch at dispenser is defective. You can unplug the dispenser plug for water dispenser on rear of refrigerator un until we can repair the dispenser switch. On back near floor are two plugs one goes to Ice Maker and other goes to water dispenser. Unplug side to dispenser and send your model number so I will be able to pull up the dispenser control that matches your refrigerator, I will assist you once I get the model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GSH25KGRWW dispenses ice/water all by itself! Heard noise last night, and refrigerator was dispensing ice all over the floor!! Attempted to stop by tapping the lever, but this had no effect; pushed water...

as you explained that by opening the freezer door the problem stopped the problem is: that you have a pinched dispenser wire or, two in the area between the door and, the door opening
these wires are low voltage so they are not going to cause a fire
but, if they touch the cabinet due to a bare wire they will ground and, start running the dispenser.
the door cover needs to be removed and, the problem (usually at the door hinge must be found and, corrected i.e. wire taped, shielded etc.

I had same problem. But door locked and could not get it open. Turn off machine and used manual release (under dispenser- you have to take dispenser tray out with 4 screws) pull on green fishing line to open door). Took off door and cleaned terminals on door switch assembly. Replaced and now it works
