It runs for a few seconds after closing the freezer door

For $5000....You are aware we usually look at a schematic or wiring diagram to ferret out the problem, right?... does that remind you of something? no? ok, next question....


For $2500, Let's say you own a cell phone repair shop and a customer calls.... " I have a Motorola amd the screen comes on for no reason, can you give me some advice?" What would you be one of the first questions you'd ask to help solve his problem? Do you see the problem with your post now? no?

okay.. okay... for $250....go to www.repairclinic.com and see if you can find the exact icemaker used in your fridge.... ring a bell yet? ..hmmmm.. next clue

for $100, have you read the following excerpt from Wikipedia's article on Frigidaire?

"Frigidaire also produces a wide variety of refrigerators and freezers for the consumer market. Their model line-up includes fridge freezer units of several different types. The selection they offer includes traditional Top Freezer models, as well as more modern Side-By-Side and French Door styles."

figured the problem we have with your post yet?... no?


Final clue, for $5 have you seen this video?

Does ice fall on the floor or does the flapper door stay shut?

flapper stays shut. But the ice plugges up the flapper area when auger runs.

does this happen due to the force of the door being closed or will it also happen when the door is gently closed?

this is a tough one. Your freezer light does connect to your auger circuit.


Screenshot_2014-01-19-22-33-52_zpsvkwx9m

Try cleaning /reseating molex connectors and check for any wire shorting or damaged freezer light.

test your auger for proper resistance, the value is found in the above diagram.

Your light and auger both connect to The dispenser control..

*note the switch is on the hot line in the above diagram also the left line feeding the auger is hot and the right line is neutral
sorry about the resolution... Freezer light switch on the bottom left and the auger motor is represented by the resistor with the circle around it and a ground wire attached (it's about midway on the right side of the diagram)

The problem may well be with the dispenser board... there are two boards listed...

I have to do more research to determine which one could cause your problem if everything else checks out.

Which one did you replace? I believe the dispenser board is part no 241708307


btw you can go to the owners support section at Frigidaire.com and get a wiring diagram... although it will tell you the fridge is discontinued, you can still get the owners manual and wiring diagram.

that is the user interface and display board... Not the dispenser control board..

which i believe is http://www.repaircli...1708307/1196738


Go get the full diagram as stated above, trace wires, look for shorts, test motor, then get board from Repairclinic if. everything else. checks out. You can always return the board if it doesn't solve the problem.
