When I push the actuator for ice, water comes out the water dispenser instead of ice out the ice dispenser. There is ice in the icemaker, the chute is not clogged, and the ice maker is turned on. When I push the actuator for water, water comes out the water dispenser, as it should. Problem started when I replaced the water filter. Just after I replaced the water filter, water started coming out the water dispenser without pushing either actuator -- nice flooding issue. I presume this is an issue with the Board-Switch 38, MFG part # 241527601. Is there some way to verify that is the source of the problem, and not Board-Switch 38C, MFG part # 241527502. Or is something else more likely?
The issue would be more likely in the Board switch 241527601 than in the other since it there was an issue with flooding. The switches connect to this board and more than likely the board has shorted to where the switch wire connect.
When you install this board, how do you insert the ribbon on the board?
Answer Hello Dennis,
The ribbon harness will just push straight in. The ribbon will also say up and down on it for which direction the ribbon should go.
I have an Electrolux Icon refrigerator (model e23cs75dss8) and the water/ice maker buttons no longer have power. This started after I replaced the ice maker actuator. When i pulled off the front panel, I believe I damaged the ribbon cable running between parts 38 and 38c in your diagram (http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5157585&diagram_id=29005091#d29005091). I replaced the ribbon cable, but there is still no power to the controls (buttons). Can you recommend a next step, or which part should be replaced? Thank you.
Answer Hello Chad,
You need to check for voltage as per the tech sheet at the control. If voltage is there, replace the control board in the dispenser. If voltage isn't there, you need to check the out put voltage on the main control board. If it isn't there, the main board has failed. If it is there, check the wiring connector at the door hinge. If it is there, the harness up to the board from the hinge has failed. If it isn't there, the wiring from the main control has failed.
