Ice dispenser is not working. I changed the motor still not working. Could it be the solenoid
Answer Hello Mike,
If you do not hear the motor trying to turn then you should check to make sure that the ice lever is making contact with the switch. If it is not then you have a problem with the lever. Also if it is just cubed ice that will not come through then check to make sure that the solenoid is in the down position.
Fridge only dispenses crushed ice, no matter if cubed or crushed is selected. Water out works fine, is this solenoid the most likely problem? Thanks
Answer Hi Robert. Remove the ice bin. Clean the entire ice bin and the crusher blades at the front. Make sure the control rod (brass colored) on the bottom of the ice bin move freely. Dry the entire bin and blades with paper towels and a hair dryer. With the door switch taped shut, keep the door open and select crush at the fountain control board. Push in the ice paddle and see if the crush solenoid part # 241675801 is stuck open or shut. It should cycle up and down as selected. Make sure it receives the 120 vac at the solenoid when selected. I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. Thank You.
Good afternoon, My ice dispenser is currently not working on my fridgidaire fridge. I have belive that I have located the problem (part number (AP3965453). The diagram of the solenoid shows a box and a pin that appears to be connected to it but mine is in two pieces. My question: is this solenoid magnetic?
Answer Hi Chris. The solenoid part # 241675701 is the ice crusher / cube solenoid. It is magnetic and when you choose crush, it lifts up the #13 so when the the ice passes by it it will hold the cube against the cutter blades until all the ice desired is finished. Is the chute flapper not opening when you desire cubes (common) ? If so then you need the chute damper motor part # 241689301. Make sure the ice bin does not over flow and the bottom of the bin is always clear of ice build up stopping the auger motor from turning.. Take it out and completely dry it. Align the rear of the auger so it aligns with the auger motor upon reinstalling or the door will not close all the way and get undesired results. Thank You.
Where is the Solenoid Assembly located? (Part #AP3965560)
Answer Hello Sstop. The solenoid is located behind the ice bucket on the back freezer wall. You will need to gain access to the auger motor to access the solenoid. Hope this helps.
