Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a GE refrigerator 197D3351P006. The door controls aren't working any more but the light will come on for each selected control (water, crushed, cubed). I pulled the panel off on the inside of the freezer near the light bulb and found a green wire hanging out with a metal clamp on the end of it. It appears that it's supposed to clamp onto something but I can't figure out where or what it clamps onto.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: crushed ice only

Thank you for contacting Electrolux Major Appliance. Please remove the
ice bucket. Against the back freezer wall, you will see a square
opening with either a white or clear switch that can be adjusted up to
down. If you have a blow dryer, blow dry the square opening for 7 min's.
Once done, adjust the switch. It will either move freely or will
remain in its opposite position. Replace the ice bucket. This should allow
cubed ice.

Take the outer frame off the dispenser area with a plastic putty knife. Start at the bottom and gently pry off, trying not to snap off plastic tabs that extend into door. Most likely you will have to replace the "interface" (part # WR55X10415) It is the small board where you select water / crushed ice / cubed ice. Relatively easy to replace. good luck.

If this helps, please rate response. Thanks.

GE Profile refrigerator panel on front has stopped responding to requests for ice. It give water, but no ice. Any ideas on what is needed?


Yes, we will need to check the wiring from the motherboard to the dispenser controls. Also we need to test the door switch. The door light switch works two ways by turning on light when open and turning on dispenser controls when closed. Sometimes the door switch is bad. I have a link and will work with you to solve this, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

The problem could be as simple as the door switch for the lights because the door switch when closed turns the control panel on. Or the problem may be the control board. WR55X129 Control Board Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Water dispenser not working


I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.
