gst85 :

hi my nae is juan,i will assist you with your problem.please remember to press accept if i have been helpful.

gst85 :

when you depress for water ,does it make any sound?

Customer:

yes it makes the usual sound of a celonoid kicking on

gst85 :

ok so it is ice making ice but just not dispensing it?

Customer:

no ice either

gst85 :

alright,i would first suggest that you check your water line connection to the inlet valve.if you have not don that yet/

Customer:

I took the bypass cap loose and water ran there

gst85 :

ok i going to llok at a diagram.i will be back in just a few minutes

gst85 :

look

Customer:

food is freezing in the vegetable bins so i raised the temp to 38 instead of 36

gst85 :

ok 35 to 45 is normal fridge temperature,does the freezer seem to be at normal temperature?

Customer:

yes

gst85 :

ok,since your water and ice dispenser both stop working it seems that your dispenser control board is just going to be your problem

gst85 :

now what i can do is provide you with the part number if youd like?

Customer:

when the lever is depressed it makes the usual sounds but no water it sounds as if it is trying, I do not think the control board is bad would the board cause the food to start freezing

gst85 :

how often does tha happened?

Customer:

the water was noticed saturday, I noticed semi frozen food today when the lever is depressed you can hear what sounds like a motor running i got ice until the bin went empty now it won't make any due to lack of water i assume

gst85 :

your just going to have is a main control board issue

gst85 :

about how old is the fridge?

Customer:

i do not agree i think the water is frozen some where 4years

gst85 :

are you still there?

Customer:

yes

gst85 :

sorry about that im having a bit of trouble on my end

Customer:

when i set the control board to ice and hjt the lever the auger turns in the ice bin no ice to dispense

gst85 :

there is a resovoir that is only for the water dispenser ,

Customer:

yes it is behind a panel on the right side of the frige i had it off

gst85 :

was it frozen when you removed it?

Customer:

couldn't tell

gst85 :

so when you dissontected the lines to the resovoir was there water coming out?

gst85 :

dissconnected

Customer:

i didn't disconnect the lines there the only place i had water was at the bypass cap that is in place of a filter that is all i checked done that by accident had to set apan under it while i shut off the water

gst85 :

has the filter ever been replaced?.

Customer:

it has never had one evidently
