My refrigerator was not coming on, replaced main board. Everything is working fine except my inside lights will not come on. Check switch ok, blubs ok,check orange wire inside no voltage. How do you check it out. Even replace encoder board
With there being no power to the lights you will want to check to make sure that on the control board all the connectors are connected properly with no loose wires. Check at the control board to make sure that there is voltage going from the board to the lights.
So I have the apparently common situation of ice maker working fine but no water (light illuminates when pressed). Determined it wasn't a freezing/blockage issue and ultimately figured it might be the secondary valve. Replacement valve did not help. It does appear the solenoids are getting powered upon lever press but no water is flowing (well maybe a dribble out of the valve. Checked the electrical connection under the front plate seems fine. Is their a voltage I can test on the secondary valve to confirm it is the main board? Could it be anything else?
Answer Hello Richard,
If the fresh food compartment temperature is set too warm, the cold air will settle to the bottom and back feed into the fresh food compartment at the bottom because of a lack of air circulation. This will freeze the water reservoir and prevent water from flowing out properly since there is sometimes a chunk of ice in it and it will flow pretty good for the first few seconds then slow down again. Blow a hair dryer at the water reservoir for about 15 minutes and try it again. If it flows good, set the freezer to a warmer setting and the fresh food side colder. I know this seems backwards but it will increase air circulation and prevent the colde air migration that is causing ther issue.
