Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working

The ice and water dispenser stopped dispensing. When you push the lever to dispense, the lights go dim. Shortly after that, it starting making a clicking noise and everytime it clicks, the lights in my entire house dim. Now, the whole thing has stopped working. My freezer is thawing and my fridge isn't cool.

    Lights for ice will not shut off on the control panel for the ice dispenser so ice is continually dispensed. Had to disconnect the control panel to stop it.

We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)

My Samsung Model: RF4287HARS refrigerator stopped DISPENSING ice. It makes it, but only water comes out of both push levers now. I get ZERO help from samsung customer service. There is nothing in


The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.

You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.

You have a bad main control board . The new pt # WR55X10656 . The dispensor board is not communicating with the control board . However , check this site to see if it can be replaced under warranty .

Have you checked the dispenser to see if it is clogged. It sounds like the motor is drawing to much power to rotate the dispenser wheel.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Your problems are the power board for sure. I have the same refrigerator and have read dozens of forums and advise pages looking for answers. If you let the problem countinue your fridge will completely stop cooling and all your food will be trash as has happened to me.

Symptoms: Fan in the back starts to make click or flopping sound as it tries to start up. Ice despenser doesent despense ice. water works sometimes. Eventually you notice your food defrosting partially and then refreezing as the defrost timer stops working which is controlled by the power board. Light dims and pulses when you hold the Ice despencer in. If you remove the light for the dispencer your water will work fine as long as the fan isnt making the clicking noise. Fan will eventually start up and run.

FYI GE customer Care is useless

Water/Ice Dispenser Mixed Up


Do you have separate levers for Ice and water, or do you have one lever and then you slide a switch to either one and then push the one lever.

GE GSH22JFRE WW not dispensing ice


Deb, sounds like your dispenser control board has given up the ghost. The boards come in 2 models, 4 button and 5 button. The 4 button part # is WR55X10443 (~$87.00)... the 5 button part # is WR55X10437 (~$97.00). Not too difficult to replace. UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE!!! Remove the drip tray from the dispenser, and any screws hiding in there. Then, using a flat screwdriver and starting at the bottom of the fascia, pry the fascia away from the door and remove. Then remove the screws holding the control in place and disconnect any wiring. (Don't forget to pay close attention to WHERE the wires connect and HOW the wires are routed!) Then install the new board and rebuild. Approx. repair time for your first one is ~1 hour. Good luck!
