Would the solenoid cause freezing under the ice container when not engaged to the arm?
Answer Hello Larry. If the ice is forming under the ice bucket, you will need to see if the flap in the dispenser is closing properly, and if the water valve for the icemaker is shutting off properly. Hope this helps.

What is the function of the solenoid part # ap3132895?
Answer Hello Larry! The solenoid 2152713 engages an arm inside the ice bucket for either crushed or cubed ice to be dispensed. Hope this helps!

Water is not filling icemaker, so no ice. It is dispensing water thru the door. It is cooling and dispenser motor is working. I also just replaced the filter.
Answer Hello Ray. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Ice dispenser will not work on crushed or cube ice. Ice maker works great.
Answer Hello Robert. Test for power to the auger motor. If there is power there, and it does not run, you will need to replace the motor on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Dispenser motor will not run. Machine makes ice ok.
Answer Hello Joe. Test for power to the dispenser motor. If there is power there and the motor does not run, you will need to replace the motor. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Will this fix the problem I'm having with the water dripping/running out of the front water dispenser?
Answer Hello NJF84. If you have recently replaced the water line the dripping can be caused by air bubbles in the water line. Try purging the line by dispensing a continous 2 gallons. If this does not correct your issue then replace the inlet valve 2188542. Thanks!
What makes the ice dispense in the front door work ? I have replaced the motor and that was an expensive part that was not the problem and could not return electronic parts. Could the solenoid be the problem or what else?
Answer Darnell, The solenoid 2152713 would not be the issue. The solenoid activates and deactivates based on the cubed or crushed ice selection, it has nothing to do with the front dispenser, other than that. We'll send you some basic information that should help you to diagnose the issue. Thanks
What would cause the center post between the freezer and the regular part of the fridge including the rubber on the door to get very hot?
Answer Hello Cliff,
When the center divider gets hot, this is a symptom of heat backing up in the sealed system. Think about it like this: Refrigeration does not make cold. It removes heat. The heat that the unit removes from the inside of the cabinet is transferred to the hot coils behind the unit where the heat is dissipated back into the room. When the unit cannot dissipate the heat, it backs up in the system. The center divider will then heat up from this heat.
Most of the time this problem is caused by a failed condenser fan motor W10181323 or condenser coils that are in need of vacuuming. The condenser fan motor is the one behind the unit. The hot coils cannot be clogged with lint or pet hair and ample space needs to be allowed for proper air circulation around the unit.
