Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my refrigerator continue dispensing ice when the lever is released?

A:

Most likely the ice dispenser switch is sticking closed and not opening once the ice dispenser cradle is released or the cradle is sticking inwards and not returning back to the normal position. It may need the ice dispenser switch. If not, locate the cause of the cradle sticking. Check the return spring that causes the ice dispenser cradle to return back to the normal position. Check for any broken lever bearing or cradle.

It is not the fault of the delay, solenoid, dispenser motor or the door mechanism. The ice dispenser switch or cradle is sticking causing the ice to keep dispensing.

Q:

Where is the ice dispenser switch on parts list diagram for my refrigerator?

A:

The wiring diagram below shows the colors of the wire for the switch that controls the dispenser auger motor. It has Blue/Black (BL/BK) and Blue (BL) wires connected to it. The other image shows the parts list diagram. Key 19 shows 2 light switches. One of these switches controls the cavity light. It will have Blue/Black and Yellow/Black (Y/BK) wires connected to it. The other one will be the ice dispenser switch.

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the refrigerator to disconnect electrical power before accessing any internal components.
