Ice dispenser doesn't work. Replaced control board, no help.
You would want to check to see if there is power going to the auger motor when you hit the dispenser switch. The light switch must be pushed in. If there is no power then check the wire harness going from the cabinet to the door for loose or broken wires. Specifically the purple wire. Also check to make sure that the dispenser lever is making contact with the switch.
How do I replace the main power door for dispenser?
To replace the main dispenser power board you will remove the drip tray from the dispenser and remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the dispenser. Pull out a little and lift the dispenser cover off. Once you have the dispenser cover off you will disconnect the ribbon harness from the control board. With the unit unplugged from the wall you will remove the old board and install the new control board.
I have no power to the any of the ice and water dispenser controls and I already tried replacing the main power dispenser control board was wondering if it could be the ribbon cable?
Answer Hello Terry. It could be the ribbon cable. First check the wires at the hinge of the freezer door and make sure the connections are good and there are no broken wires. If the wires are good, check the ribbon cable. If it is good, then it is the control board 241708306.
Our fridge was not staying cool. Nor was the freezer. The thermostat was all over the place. There was frost built up in the freezer.
Answer Hello Bonnie. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the evaporator coils in the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
IT WILL NOT DEFROST THERMOSTAT TEST OK , HEATER ELEMENT TEST OK SO WOULD LIKE TO REPLACE 241708202 CONTROL BOARD BUT AM NOT SURE WHERE IT IS LOCATED, I DID SEE A PICTURE OF IT AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE PLUG IN SOCKET ON IT WOULD FIT THE PLUG ON THE THERMOSTAT WIRE HARNESS, WAS WONDERING IF THE HARNESS PLUGS INTO THIS BOARD AND HOW TO ACCESS THE CIRCUIT BOARD. THANKS
Answer Buford, The defrost control is a circuit located inside the "genesis" control 5303918341 inside the refrigerator compartment. The dispenser control board 241708202 has nothing to do with the operation of the refrigerator. To access The ELECTRONIC control is located in the housing, mounted in the food compartment along with the light and damper assembly. To remove the Control Housing Assembly, remove the three screws across the front control box and the two screws located in the rear control box. After removing cover over water line on front filter models, remove the screw from the back of the control box. The 2 housings will separate at the left back of the front
housing by sliding the rear housing to the right until the buttons line up with the larger hole in the slots. The Control is mounted on the left and it controls the cycling of the compressor, condenser fan motor, damper motor, and evaporator fan motor, as well as the defrost cycle.
Water drips out of dispenser. Changed water valve and still drips periodically.
Answer Hello Rich. Make sure the filter is good, and the water pressure coming to the unit is good.
