GE - fridge , I moved this working fridge downstairs. Ice is being made. Light for ice/water fill not working. Changed out light bulb (8watt) still not working.
If I open the freezer door, the light inside comes on. But we did damage that switch, but we can get light to come on and off, it's actually stuck in off pos, and if I pull on it, light in freezer works.
Now, if I check ac or dc voltage at the pins on top of freezer hinge, I just get like 8V ac, I don't get any DC or 120AC. Shouldn't there be power the the CB on freezer (AP2071638) or no? What part should I test?
I'm very knowledgeable with appliance / electronics and can test for continuity and voltages.
If the light switch for the interior light is damaged then you would want to replace the switch as it will cause the dispenser light to not work.
The water valves are good and it will dispense water but it will put water in the ice tray , what needs to be replaced ?
Answer C. Witt,
The unit uses a dual water valve so that when you push for dispenser it will bring water in from one valve but the icemaker valve may not open to put water in. You will want to check to make sure that the fill tube is not frozen. If it is then replace the water valve and also check to make sure that you are getting 120 vac to the valve. If you are then the valve is faulty and would need to be replaced.
