Ice dispenser not working - No sound when actuated - Not locked at front panel. Water dispenser works fine. What parts do I need to troubleshoot?
Answer Travis, First check should be at the top freezer door hinge. Check and make sure there are no loose wires or connections, etc. Then you'll need to access and check the 2180236 selector switch and the actuator switch 2162361 mounted on the bracket assembly.
I had Kenmore side by side the ice maker work fine but no drinking water would come out.
Answer Hello Vu,
I'm sorry but in order to diagnose the issue, we have to have the model number from the units' I.D. tag. Thank you for your understanding and patience in this matter.
Hello, I have a Kitchenaid model KSFS25FJBL01 Counter Depth Refrigerator, and the ice dispenser, water dispenser, and light are not working. Sometimes I'm able to get the light to work, so I know the bulb is good, but it's an intermittent problem. The ice and water dispensers never function. Does this sound like the front panel switch assembly (Part Number AP3086666) is bad? Can I use a multimeter to determine the problem? If so, what exactly should I look for? Thanks, Mark
Answer Hello Mark,
This sounds like possibly a bad light/door switch 12466114. If it doesn't make when closed, the dispenser is disabled. This would not mean the lights would not come on since this is a different connection inside the switch. I would also check the harness at the door hinge for broken or naked wires. The other switches in the dispense area should be checked in case they have been fouled by drinks splattering when ice was dispensed.
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.
