I have purchased this part in hopes that it would fix the problem with my icemaker not reading the door is closed and not dispensing. I am not able to see where this part is though or how to install it. The sensor is blinking twice when the door is open and when the button is pressed
Answer Louis, The Door interlock switch 12466114 is located on the hinge side of the opening when the door is opened, but it is not likely the issue. Based on the post information your issue is in the Refrigerator PC Board KIT 4389102. Try this : OPEN THE FREEZER DOOR- LED 2 PULSES FOLLOWED BY A 1 SECOND DELAY. (REPEATED)=THE FLAPPER DOOR ON THE EMITTER IS BLOCKING THE BEAM or THE OPTICS ARE FAULTY. PRESS IN THE EMITTER DOOR TO UNBLOCK THE BEAM - 2 PULSES FOLLOWED BY A 1 SECOND DELAY.(REPEATED)
THE OPTICS ARE FAULTY = REPLACE EMITTER & RECEIVER BOARD or LED IS ON SOLID = OPTICS ARE WORKING - CLOSE FREEZER DOOR.
Where is the water dispenser switch located? Could this be my problem? The ice maker works just fine - but the water dispenser dispenses water and never stops! I replaced the control board but that wasn't the problem - also the dispenser panel beeps non-stop - we had to put a toothpick into the "Lock" control to shut it up. If I plug the water back in on the back of the refrigerator, the water will come out of the dispenser automatically and not stop. Can you help>
This unit does not have a dispenser switch. The switch would be incorporated into the dispenser pad W10176455. You can switch the wiring of the pad from the ice dispenser and see if it continues to run. This would tell you whether the pad is stuck or not the pad at all. Also disconnect the wire harness to the water dispenser valve in the back of the unit and see if it continues to run. If so then the water valve is bad and would need to be replaced. Also check to make sure that the unit is not set for a measured fill. If this is the case and it never reached its volume then it would cause the dispenser to not shut off.
