'ello,

Ok this is driving me nuts.

Customer Complaint:
Crushed ice only from door. No water from dispenser. Plenty of ice.

Found 3 wires cut at the lower door hinge.(Blue, White/red, Violet) I repaired the broken wires and got the water dispenser and crushed/cubed working. Somewhere while repairing, I shorted the Blue wire to ground... saw some sparks *oops i let some smoke out*... now I have no auger motor or selenoid... Its kind of driving me crazy... any ideas?

Also, I have no idea how to get off the outer dispenser assembly off so I can check the switches in the door...

This model DOES have the optional dispenser lock and optional light switch...

I have wiring diagram for those who want to see it...

thanks!

Does the Water Valve & Cavity Light still work ?
If so, would seem like a bad Ice Lever Switch OR wiring

I think I just commented on this type of fridge yesterday. http://www.applianto...__fromsearch__1 Since I am certain you are aware of how to remove a wp dispenser cover, I have to assume you are dealing with a fridge where an SS trim piece covers the pry slots at the bottom of the dispenser cover. If so, you have to remove the long SS trim piece on the edge of the freezer door in order to remove the ss panel on the front of the door. You can remove only one of the edge pieces then slide the ss panel to the left or right depending on which trim piece you removed. If I remember correctly, it may be best to remove the trim piece on the left edge of the door in order to avoid having to deal with the handle. Then remove the SS panel out by sliding it to the left. If not possible, then remove handle side trim and slide panel to right. This will give you access to the screws for the SS trim piece that's covering the dispenser cover slots. Hate to say it but, "welcome to my world." :)

I like to kick the balls off the designer who first got the idea to put matching wood panels on appliances... always a little extra pain in my ass...
of course I realize these are stainless, but the theory is the same.
As every cockroach knows , thriving on poisons is the secret of success.

Yep sucks. And it is the only fridge that I ever cracked a dispenser cover. The cover was wedged tightly against the top ss trim piece. And when I pried the bottom of the trim off....crack! I probably could have hidden it from the customer. But we are all honorable, are we not?
Though not too honorable to do the following to the designer :kopkrab: :deal: :stupid: :smileymoon: :boid: :urinate: :fouetaa: :bangin:

Reg,

I think you are thinking a problem with the ice maker... my problem is the motor that turns the ice bucket auger and its selenoid...

Thanks Durham.. ill give it a shot.

Oh and reg yes they both work. Everything works but the ice bucket auger motor and selenoid. I am thinking when the wire shorted it opened up somewhere else... If the blue wore were severed... What wouldnt work? I couldnt find a strip circuit and that diagram makes me want to cry lol

notice the Blue wire that goes to the ice Dispenser Motor and to the Plunger Solenoid
It connects to the Ice Lever Switch (on the Dispenser panel)
