ALWAYS CHECK FROM THE WATER SUPPLY LINE TO THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE ... TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE GOOD WATER FLOW ... IF WATER FLOW IS GOOD, SHUT "OFF" VALVE. THEN YOU CAN CHECK WATER SOLENOID VALVE STRAINER AND ORFICE TO SEE IF IT IS CLOGGED. (USUALLY LOCATED BEHIND FRIG.... INSIDE THE INLET SIDE OF THE VALVE THAT REQUIRES YOU OR SOMEONE TO REMOVE THE SUPPLY LINE BRASS NUT. (IN SOME CASES THE FITTINGS ARE NEOPREME) CREFULLY REMOVE THE STRAINER AND ORFICE ASSEMBLY ... IT IS SMALL !!! (CLEAN THEM THROUGHLLY). REPLACE ALL PARTS THE WAY YOU REMOVED THEM.... TO CHECK WATER SUPPLY SOLENOID OPERATION EASILY ... JUST USE A "METAL BUTTER KNIFE AND HOLD IT ABOUT 1/4" FROM THE TOP OF THE VALVE ... YOU SHOULD FEEL THE MAGNETIC PULL IF IT IS GOOD. LASTLY LOSEN THE NUT ON THE SIDE OF THE VALVE THAT LEADS INTO THE FRIG. TO CHECK FOR WATER FLOW. IF YOU HAVE WATER ... THEN THINK ABOUT CALLING A "LICENSED FACTORY-CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GET A "FLAT-RATE DIAGNOSTIC CHECK". UNFORTUNATELY THOUSANDAS OF CONSUMERS ARE BILKED BY SO CALLED FIX-IT-ALL HANDYMEN WHO LOOK TO REPLACE PARTS THAT CAN COST YOU HUNDREDS. NO WATER ??? NO ICE !!!

How to change the light bulb in the outside ice/water dispenser



Question about Maytag 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
1 Answer
The light on the outside door (where the ice/water dispenser is) won't turn off. It is dimmer than when you hit the 'light' button, but it stays on constantly when the door is shut. The 'light' button works and turns the bulb brighter, but when you turn it off, it just dims and doesn't go out. The light shuts off when the door is open and turns back on when its closed.

Re: The light on the outside door (where the ice/water...

Hi
Reprogramming your refrigerator to only light up when the dispenser is in use saves energy and keepsyour house darker at night. The light is controlled using the buttons above the water dispenser mechanism.Press and hold the "Lock" or "Lock Controls" button for three seconds to activate the controls if they currently are locked.Tap the "Light" button to switch off the light.Press and hold the "Lock" button for another three seconds to lock the controls from further changes. The light now only comes on when the dispenser is active.
If the above procedure won't work then this will be the cause of a faulty switch. This light switch is an integrated part of the dispenser control circuit board. This will require you, or your service tech to replace the entire dispenser/ice maker control board. It will be located just behind the dispenser fascia, mounted on a bracket. the actual light switch circuit is mounted on this board.
Try this procedure:-
Shutdown the unit for five minutes. Simply unplug the unit for this length of time. This will reset the board, and possibly, fix this fault if it is not to severe. If the shutdown dose not correct the switch action, simply replace the dispenser/switch control circuit board.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I've got a Whirlpool side by side refrigerator that is about 7 years old. The freezer side works, the frige side works, and the ice maker is making ice. The front door ice and water dispensor isnt working...


That will take a few test to determine which is the most likely. Most times it is a loose connection in wiring harness as it goes from cabinet to door or the freezer light switch is defective. When you open door to freezer all of the fountain and ice maker power is disconnected for safety reasons. If the switch is defective when door is shut then these are acting as a lockout. But you just said ice maker works so we are back to a bad connection or the LV (Low Voltage)board itself. This will take someone with a multi meter and follow through with me and wiring from the tech. sheet. I will try to make a wiring diagram for you to follow here. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice and Water Dispenser on door stopped working


Sounds like the dispensor board has lost communication with the main control board . The part number for the main board is WR55X10942 . This is the board behind the refrig , behind the small 8 X 10 panel . It runs about $ 150.00 . I have never found a bad dispensor board . The main board is easily replaceable .

Ice dispensor not working


Most likely reason water not dispensing out door 1) You can turn up the temp in the freezer to see if it thaws in a couple of days, 2) Turn on the dispenser light and leave it on, will thaw the line and keep it thawed, 3) the water tank is frozen in the fresh food side (you can defrost with a blow drier) 6) the fill valve went bad or plugged ( power to fill valve but not opening) ($50) 7) Micro switch went bad in the dispenser for the water side 8) Door switch bad 9) Install a heater kit to thaw the line and it will keep it thawed ($35) PN#1381601 10) You can replace the whole door if insulation gone bad in door ( $500 to $800) 11) a broken wire to the fill valve ( no power to fill valve ) 12) with GE refrigerator bad dispenser boards or control boards ($400 and $150) 13) plugged, faulty or incorrectly installed water filter let me know more about you problem and I can help..

GE GSS25QSTSS no lights working on the water and ice dispenser. No light working, no ice dispenses or water. Tried unpluggin no luck


I would remove the bottom kick panel ( 1 screw on each side ) and follow the wires to the receptical ( about 5 inches from bottom of door ) . Wiggle the receptical , to see if any of the dispensor lights come on . Also try pushing the wires into the receptical farther . If still no lights , then the main control board behind the refrig ( behind 8" X 10 " panel ) is probably bad . No communication between the main board and dispensor board . Part number WR55X10942 . I have yet to come across a bad dispensor board , so , replace the main board first . If the receptical process doesn't work .

The Kenmore Ice maker makes no ice. This is a side by side unit. The freezer is very cold. The water solenoid is not faulty, but is not turning on so the problem must be in the electronic ice level...


Good chance the water line near the ice maker motor is frozen. Thaw out the freezer for about 6 hours - move your frozen stuff to the refrig - ot should be OK - then back again after thawing. This alnost always works.

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
