When I remove the glass from the dispenser pad ice keeps dispensing. Would the micro switch be the best place to start?
Answer Hello David. The dispenser switch WR23X366 is the perfect place to start. In the process of getting there remember that if ice has been dispensed into a glass filled with liquid, the liquid will splash up into the area where the paddles and linkages are located. This can cause the linkages to stick, which is the initial complaint. In light of this information, keep in mind that in many cases simply cleaning the area of sticky residue corrects the issue. Hope this helped!
When I let go of the dispenser pad on the outside of the refigerator door, the ice keeps dispensing and goes all over the kitchen floor
Answer Edna, You'll need to dismantle the dispenser assembly in order to check the switches and mechanism, here are some basic instructions :
" The dispenser assembly consists of the interface, display board, dispenser shield, and duct door functioning parts. The dispenser interface can be removed to access the display board and the dispenser shield mounting screws. The interface is held in place by 4 tabs that hold it to the dispenser recess. To remove the interface, it is necessary to grasp the bottom lip of the interface on either side and gently pull it towards you. There are 3 wire harnesses connected to the display board.The dispenser shield can be removed to access
the cradle switch, duct door, duct door solenoid, and dispenser LED lights. The dispenser shield is attached to the dispenser recess with 4 Phillipshead screws." Thanks and Good Luck
Water leaks at depenser.
Answer Hello James. If the unit is leaking and there is no air in the lines, you will need to replace the water valve WR57X10012. Hope this helps.
