Resolved Question:

I have a Frigidaire FRS23KR4A upright freezer/ fridge, and the water/ ice machine is not working. I have replaced the filter, and pulled it out to ensure connected to the water inlet and that it is turned on. Everything looks fine. In addition the lights on the panel on the front of the water dispenser are not working either, which makes me wonder if there is a fuse that is out!? But when looking in the manual it doesn't say anything about a fuse.
thanks!

Hi Larry - I did go ahead and replace the powerboard as suggested, and I now have ice! (yay!) but the dispenser still does not work... so I can not dispense the ice or water... I know there is another board that is behind the buttons on the dispenser - would you think that needs to be changed too?? Not sure if that would be # XXXXX or 38C in the diagram....

 

thanks
