Hello,

Came home and found water on floor in front of refrigerator. It seemed to

have came from the water dispenser. It wasn't leaking at the time I arrived

home. Now the control panel light is on and none of buttons will do nothing,

the light will not even turn off?

 

Is there any diagnostic checks than can be performed on the control board or

is it just dead? Any suggestions would be great!!

 

Thanking you in advance,

Stan03

Believe there is a kit to repair this, several parts will need to be replaced, I do not have this kit number, however others in here should be able to post it...probably will need the model and serial numbers..

remove fountain assembly, remove two screws under fountain sump to remove facade[KEYPAD],  remove 3 screws in fountain area to drop fountain assembly.  inspect micro switch and wiring behind actuator pad.  look   for moisture or any signs of corrosion at switch terminals.   wiring diagram is normally in fresh food control assembly housing.(upper  right hand side).      disconect power at upper freezer door hinge. it's under the plastic hinge cap, remove screw holding cap. cap snaps off.  fountain kit referred to by pegi, has solenoid, dispenser door with arm, does not include electronic board or actuator switch, must order these separately.   clean out all moisture , the moisture can cause the switch to activate your dispenser.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I know they are not related to the current problem, but what are the purpose

of the primary and secondary water fill valves? I'm used to seeing just the one!

 

Thanks again

I would imagine this is a fail safe, if one fails open the other would keep a flood from happening by closing....I might be way off, but this is what I believe this is for...
