The Ice Maker/Water dispenser has a light bulb in it that lasted only two days after moving in. I went to an appliance parts store and purchased two new replacement bulbs. The first replacement bulb lasted one month before burning out. The second replacement bulb is in use now. Something seems wrong that these bulbs burn out so quickly. Possibly would a lower wattage bulb work better?
Answer Hello Jessie,
I would check the voltage in the wall outlet. If the voltage is low, the current flow will increase at a rate inversely proportional. In other words, if the voltage is cut in half, the current flow is doubled. If it checks out okay and the light socket is not discolored, the next step is to test the power supply board to the light, (dispense board) WR55X11086. There should be no more than about 13.8Vdc at the socket with no load, (bulb out). The input to the board from the main board should not exceed about 14.5Vdc. If the power in is good and the power out is out of range, replace the dispense board. If the power in to the dispense board on pins J4-2 to J4-1 is out of range, replace the main board WR55X11072.
