My ice dispenser quit switching from cube to crushing. Is it possible that the switches in the door quit working? Every thing else works fine.
You will want to check the solenoid next to the auger motor to make sure that it is not stuck in the cube position which would be the up position. If so then make sure that it will come back down and if not then the solenoid would need to be replaced. If this checks ok then the switch would most likely be the cause of failure.
Please tell me what you would use to remove this overlay from the panel. Do you approach it from the back? It seems almost impossible without marring the panel. Do you have a video on this?
Answer Hello Joe,
This is held on by a glue. It is difficult to remove without marring but if you take the edge of a flat blade you may be able to get under it and pull off being very careful. There is not a video to show you how to do this.
I bought part #AP3086666 for model # GD27DFXFW02 side by side refridgerator. The schematic on your page for "dispenser front" shows the part #18. My problem is how do I remove this part from the front panel so I can replace it with the new one. If you have a video on the procedure I would be pleased to see it.
Answer Hello Joe,
To access the part you will remove the dispenser cover. To do this you will use a flat blade screw driver at the bottom of the cover and pry loose. To get this part off you will have to remove the overlay from the front cover. You will need to be careful not to damage the overlay. Once you have the overlay off there are clips in the back that you push on and release the switch assembly.
My dispenser is not dispensing water or ice, however it does make ice. When pressing the paddles, there are no sounds. What part do I need or what do I need to test to get this fixed?
Answer Robert, The first check to make, is at the dispenser, make sure thwe dispenser lock has not been selected, and then at the freezer door light switch,it has to operate properly, it supplys power to the dispenser. The next check is at the freezer door hinge, make sure the dispenser wire harness is not loose or backed out of the connection. Then dismantle the dispenser and check the switches and wiring there. We'll send you some information to help you out. Thanks
