Customer Question

I have a Frigidaire side by side (Model PHSC39EESS5) the water actuator was broken when we moved in, and I just replaced it, but when I put it back together it started acting weird. The lock light is blinking, other lights randomly turn on, the water started running without pushing the actuator, as did the ice as a separate point. Do you have a guess as to if I broke the control panel, or the ribbon connecting it, or is it in the power board?

In the diagram at the link below, number 38 is the power board for the dispenser. I suspect that part is faulty. Does it (or any of the other parts in the dispenser) show any signs of electrical trouble like arc marks or discoloration?

The ribbon looks discolored on the end, would that need to be replaced too?
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 months ago.

Yes, the board is probably shorted and it caused that ribbon to get warm.
