Refrigerator Ice Dispenser Not Working

After about 1 year of usage, ice dispenser panel stops working. Just unplug and plug back after 1 minute (thinking about reboot of PC). Panel starts blinking about 15 hours (be patient!) though the compressor starts working again. Be patient on blinking!
i guess the control board stuck/hung up something on my case. Good luck!

It won't dispense water and my control panel is lit up and flashing from item to item. Do I need to reset it? My husband pushed a lot of buttons to try to stop the ice maker and ever since then, it w


First, try unplugging the refrigerator for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. If the problem persists, you will need to replace the dispenser control module.

Frigidaire FRS26ZSH -ice & water dispenser panel lost power


I think you will need to unplug the pin plug under the cover at top or bottom hinge. Check the voltage and if OK leave unplugged until you can remove the dispenser and I will try to help you from the power source. Sounds like a short in the board and related to the light socket. The fuse only stopped the short from doing further damage, You may need to locate the short before replacing the fuse or board. I have looked over the wiring diagram. If you find the short without my help just be sure to replace the fuse with the correct size. The only things are the chute heater or something in that area of the board went to ground. Do you have a voltage meter? Contact me later when ready, Sea Breeze

water/ice dispenser sticking on


We had a problem with the water/ice dispenser on our 5-year-old LG SxS Refrigerator (LRSC 26930TT). In a panic to stop the water flow, the rubber activator boot was pulled off. The dispenser stopped once the button attached to the back of the boot was removed. Nothing was physically broken (i.e., parts intact) but the challenge was to get things (especially the boot) back in place. The key for me was to use patience: researched Internet for pointers (not too helpful), looked for schematics (even less fruitful) and exhaustively examined the panel on refrigerator (to help reverse engineer). Okay, here’s how I disassembled and reassembled without breaking any tabs or other pieces. Assuming your unit is similar, the panel is on the freezer door on the left side. You can lock the dispenser (using panel button) to preclude undesired water/ice while working. Note: the outer bezel (edge of panel) is secured by screws and should not be messed with. The main panel has tabs on all four sides. I used three screwdrivers (small to average in size) to pry the panel off. Pry the main panel working through the seam between the bezel and panel. Work your way around starting from the lower left or upper left corner. Each side of the panel has 3 or 4 tabs. Methodically work your way around using moderate force to pop the tabs loose. Once the panel is loose, you’ll need to disconnect the electrical connector at the upper left. The plug comes off and reattaches easily…don’t pull on the wires, use the plastic connector itself. Wiggle the panel free. Now you can get to the back of the boot retention bezel…the ultimate goal. Carefully push the bezel’s securing tabs (x3) through the panel and reattach the rubber boot. I used needle nose pliers to carefully pull each rubber nib through their applicable hole on the bezel. Now leave the boot/bezel assembly to the side—it’s the last step to reassembly. Note how the main panel tabs fit into their receiving slots/flanges. Reattach the electrical connector, snaps right on, and maneuver center of panel into recessed area, around ice chute/water nozzle. Slide the right and bottom sides on first—flanges, not slots for tabs—then align remainder of panel. Using moderate force, pop (punch) the remaining tabs back into their respective slots. The main panel will seat over the bezel. Now align and snap boot/bezel back into place. Finis! (No guarantees, but this procedure worked like a charm for me.)

NO ICE OR WATER FROM DISPENSER, REPLACED BOARD, STILL NO GO


We have had the same problems. First the ice dispenser stopped. Then the water dispenser worked intermittenly, and finally the freezer stopped cooling. We had a repairman come out and he replaced the motherboard, but one thing he said struck me as helpful. If there is power surge, the whole thing might just need a reset. So before calling GE or ordering a new motherboard, unplug the refrigerator and plug it back in. See if that fixes it before you pay $350 to fix it.
