I was going to install a water actuator and pulled the face plate at which time the ribbon cable harness became detached. I didn't do anything more than this and put the face plate back but nothing works now. How do I attach the ribbon cable? Is there a diagram you could send? Thanks
Answer Hello Richard,
The ribbon cable may have a locking tab that must be pulled up before slipping the ribbon into its' slot. Once it is inserted into its' slot, the locking tab can be snapped in the down position. This not only holds the ribbon in position but also causes the traces on the ribbon cable to make electrical connection.
I need help with connecting the ribbon wire too the board on the the panel I see how too coneect it to the one on the door but not the other end towards #1
If you look at the bottom of the control panel that you are trying to connect to there is a small spot were the ribbon harness will go. It is easier to pull the control board off the panel and install the harness then connect it to the control board on the door.
Installed part# 241680002 ribbon cable and the same thing happens..... the ice maker continues to dispense ice and the lights stay light ....HELP!
Most likely with the ribbon harness being good, you will want to make sure that the dispenser lever is not hitting the switch but it sounds like the power board on the dispenser would be the issue. Part number 241708102.
