I recently replaced the water dispenser arm on my refrigiderator. When I reassembled the unit, the ice dispenser auger became active and will not shut down. Pressing any of the buttons on the unit have no effect. What can I do?
ANSWER Joe, you'll need to dismantle the dispenser, again and check for a stuck actuator switch, spring, and paddle alignment. " GAINING ACCESS
Two gain access to the control area you will need to pull thedrip tray out first. With the drip tray removed, remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift up on the front panel, there are tabs on the top of the panel that slide into holes in the door panel.Swing panel out to side, being careful not to pull the wires out of the disconnect plug or the board itself. Carefully unplug the wiring harness from the touch panel on the front cover. This will give you access to the control board.On models with no selector on the front panel, when you
remove the front you can gain access directly to dispenser because you do not have a touch pad or board on dispenser. On models with electronic control to gain access to the control,snap the light socket loose and remove the 6 small screws from the board. Pull board straight out of housing. Disconnect plug on left side of board. Disconnect 4 wires to dispenser actuator switches.With the board removed, remove the 3 screws from the dispenser housing and pull the dispenser forward.Remove water line from dispenser housing by pulling straight
out.With the water line removed, the upper part of the dispenser is free of the freezer door panel. The main housing is part of the door panel, and is not removable.The ice door and actuator switches, as well as the return springs, can be serviced with the control module removed.Tension is held against both the water and ice actuator by a stainless steel, two bladed spring mounted behind the actuator switches. The spring is held in place with 2 screws.The Actuators are held in place by stainless clamps at each end of the actuator and the two bladed spring in the middle. The actuators can be removed by removing the 4 screws and lifting the paddle / ice chute out of the
housing." You should be able to determine the issue at this point. Good Luck and Thanks
