HelloCustomer My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am happy to help you today.
Please look at this diagram for your machine :
#15 is a magnetic switch, called a reed switch. If electrically open, will keep the machine from doing anything at all.This is what is activated when you close your dispenser drawer , as I know you stated you have done, but this switch is actuated by a tiny magnet in the dispenser drawer , #51. If the magnet becomes lost or the switch goes bad, you will have absolutely no response from the machine, even
when the drawer is closed. This was a problem so Frigidaire has eliminated the switch and jumpered th connection on all replacement control boards for you machine. Check for the magnet in the drawer, and if you see/ feel it, open the top of the machine by removing the rear screws, look towards the left of the control panel where the main controller is mounted, you will see this :
he black part of the switch will be clipped on to the area behind the dispenser, roughly where #27 is pointing in the diagram.You can test the switch if you want by removing the connector from the controller, put your meter on lowest ohms or continuity, touch the leads to the terminals on the connector and close the dispenser drawer. If no continuity, replace the switch if you want, or the magnet in the drawer, whichever applies to your case, but honestly, you can just cut the black switch off and connect the wires together, tape them out of the way and try again. Like I said, the manufacturer eliminated that switch on all replacement boards for your machines and they come jumpered right from the factory, so you dont need it! Let me know if you need any further information or if this does not work
