Icemaker motor is not working, I replaced auger motor it started to work then stopped. All other functions work for example water still dispenses and all lights work on front and inside of refrigerator. What next?
Answer Hello Jim,
If heating the motor with a hair dryer for about 15 minutes makes it work you should look for an air leak around the doors and the ice door. Condensation from an air leak will cause frost to freeze up the motor. Also consider setting the freezer to a warmer setting.
Why does both the cube switch & the crushed switch dispense crushed only?
In most cases either the arm on the bin is not seated in the solenoid or the solenoid itself is bad. You will want to pull the bin out and look by the auger motor. There is a square hole there, you will want to make sure that the solenoid arm is down. If it is then push the light switch and dispenser lever for ice and see if the arm goes up. If not then the issue would be the solenoid and if the solenoid arm is in the up position when you take the bin out you will need to get the arm back to the down position.
Water/ice dispenser not working (no ice, no water), but freezer is making ice cubes. I have 120V power to the power board. Where do I check to see if power is coming out of power board? How do I check control board?
If you access the dispenser control board. There will be a 6 pin connector. Check from Red/Black wire to the Light blue wire for 120 vac. If there is 120 vac present then the issue would most likely be the power board on the dispenser.
The evaporator fan will not run and control panel will not light up.
Answer Hello Ron. Check and see if there is power coming to the control board 5303918340. If so, and the board does not light up, replace the board on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Replaced ribbon harness still no power to water or ice dispensers.
Answer Hello Tim. If there is power coming to the power board, but not out, you will need to replace the power board. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

I was replacing the actuator of my Frigidaire side-by-side, as it broke. The ice dispenser was working fine. Since it is tricky to install the water hose back on, apparently it fell out of place, and water was coming out from the side.
Now, that I fixed the hose issue, there is no longer any contact with the outside board (the one that is attached to the black cover). How can I test the board to see if it was damaged due to the water incident, or if the ribbon may be damaged? I don't want to order the part, when it may have been something simple to fix.
Also, how can I install the water hose correctly next time? It is so rigid that it is difficult to handle with such little space.
Answer Hello Javier. Just test the switches and make sure everything works like it should on the dispenser. If so, the boards are fine. If not, the boards are bad. As for the hose, you just have to make sure the end of the hose comes out the holder in the actuator and locks into place.
