The spring came out with the ice. I got the spring back in, but the little black cup that you showed in the video that was held in by tension, so it fell out while I was working on it and I got it all back together and couldn't figure out how the cup was in there. Does it need to be in there? What purpose does it have?
Answer Hello Jim,
The little black cup, (delay mechanism), prevents the ice door from shutting too quickly and catching ice cubes that should drop on through. Assembling the unit without it will cause "ice cube traffic jams". One end simply slips on the lever and the other end, slips into the cup end, which slips into the slot directly above it on the dispenser housing, (this is shown in the illustration above the top screw just to the left of the arrow from number 1.
Greetings! The water dispenser stopped working on my refrigerator. All other refrigeration functions are working correctly, including the ice maker and dispenser. Do you have any idea what would cause the water dispenser to stop working? What part might I need to buy? Thank you.
Answer Hello Brad. Test and see if there is power going to the water valve when the dispenser lever is pressed. If so, and no water comes out, you will need to replace the water valve W10408179. Also, if there is power there unscrews the hose from the bottom of the water valve to confirm that no water is coming out when the dispenser is pressed. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
