Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It was. Now with the new circuit board it despenses ice but I cannot select water
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 4 years ago.
you will need to replace the dispenser board on the door and the part number is XXXXX and cost about $65 and you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you ,,, Glad i could help you with your problem today so please hit the accept button for me before you leave so i may be paid ,, Thanks
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I thought of that first and talked to the guy at the parts dealer. He said they sell hundreds of mother boards but just a few of the dispenser boards. The thing is that replacing the high voltage board has changed the problem. The dispenser door is no longer flaping open and closed and the display is flashing a code. Before, all the lights were flashing and the temp. settings were displayed. The code it is flashing now is PEO OOO.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 4 years ago.
the guy at the parts store likes to sell the higher price parts and if you want this problem fixed then you have to replace the part i told you too and they sell a lot more dispenser boards on this model than any main boards
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Ok. Why then has the problem changed with the new board I just replaced. I would like to replace the small one but the ratail price is $105. Add that to the $225 I just spent on the main board it is starting to add up. Does the code that is flashing mean something? If so, why was it not flashing prior to me replacing the main board?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 4 years ago.
the board only cost about $65 and when you replaced the motherboard it only rebooted the dispenser board and it will start doing it again

i will be off line for rest of the day to take my insulin and rest up so if you need more information please ask now or please hit the accept button for me or i will be back in the morning / thanks Larry
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
OK now I have replaced both circuit boards and have not corrected the problem! That is what I was afraid of. Nothing has changed. Now what?
Expert:  Repairman1981 replied 4 years ago.
If you won't leave me negative feedback because of the other tech I will step in and help you out the problem is the new bopard needs to be programmed. There is a 4 digit code on the model and serial tag that says what your code is. As for the instructions I will look them up when I get to my home computer in about an hour or so. If that doesn't work just opt me out and maybe someone else can help faster. I am truly sorry the other tech told you to replace the dispenser board. The hv booard just needs programming. Thanks
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
ok thanks let me know when you get home and find the instructions. I had the feeling I was on a wild goose chase before
Expert:  Repairman1981 replied 4 years ago.

Directly from the tech sheet, if you need more help lemme know. Please also remember when leaving feedback your leaving it for me not larry. The code is on the model serial tag will be 4 digits. Thanks!
