Stuck water Dispenser switch Kenmore Elite Trio #795.75196400
Posted 20 November 2006 - 04:30 AM
My question is can I take the face plate off and access the switch? If so, how? I see two small tab holes under the face plate but I'm afraid I'll break it if I pull on the face plate.
Can anyone help me on this?
Thanks in advance

I've been on the run around with Sears for the last 3 hours and not a service appt available until after Friday!
I just need to know if I can take this *&^^* face plate off and see if I can get this button back down?

I have the same diagram. Which isn't very helpful. I can see the white #276B Button Lever. But the (I think) #406E Lever dispenser is what is stuck up inside. Won't come down. I believe it's the thing you push the glass rim up on to activate the water on. The water just continues to flow if the refrig door is closed.
I turned the water off, but it continues to hum. ( I'm assuming some kind of switch motor) which I'll probably burn out here soon. Can this face plate be taken off?
Any help would be appreciated

The part number is 4620ja3026A...forgot the A. What it is, is a plastic stopper which limits the vertical movement of the actuator switch...Ron

I tried a search for this part # and got 0 hits. Is this the correct #? And how hard is this to install? Any diagrams around?

Ok I found the part on Sears website. But what's a service flash and how do I get the one you cited? I tried on Sears but got no where.

Thank you Peg for giving me the courage to pry the front plastic face off! I HATE that manufactures are making these kinds of face plates and covers, the tabs snap off, the face plates crack, etc! I have broken so many!
I am still a little confused as far as the "kit" or part # Ron gave me (what is does) and what Peg is saying about the buttons. Please help me understand.
My actual unit (and what the drawing doesn't show) is there is a black button that fits inside #276B Button lever, which when pushed up activates #406E lever, dispenser. Will this new "kit" replace this piece? Or do I have the right part on this unit now? Does the service flash address this problem, how do I access this service flash?
Also, the button seems to still stick (but not get caught up behind the #276B white piece, Should I just replace this? I am also not getting water when it is pushed. Could this be, that I burned out the switch when it was left in the "on" position for so long?
So many questions, I know but you guys are turning me into an appliance repair junky! MORE INPUT, MASTERS (please)
