Question and Answers

Q:

Why did the dispenser light and dispenser functions stop working?

A:

The light could have stopped working due to a burned out light bulb, the light switch may have failed, the light socket may be corroded inside and not allowing the bulb to make a good connection or it could have a wiring problem. The ice dispenser could also have a failed switch or maybe the auger motor has failed or it could also have a wiring problem. Since nothing at all is working now the problem could be with the interlock (light) switch. If this switch fails the dispenser won't work at all. To check this switch, first disconnect the power from the unit. Now you can pop the switch out (it can be tricky). With the switch out, connect the black and blue/black wires together. Reconnect the power to the unit and check if the dispenser works now. If it does work, the switch will need to be replaced. If it still won't work, check the wire connector at the bottom of the freezer door. Be sure to disconnect the power, before checking this wire connection. If all the wires are ok, the most likely problem will be with the dispenser switch assembly. This switch cannot be replaced separately. The complete front cover assembly would need to be replaced. A technician may be needed to check the switch assembly, auger motor and socket. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.
