I have a GE Refrigerator Model # XXXXX and the water dispenser and ice dispenser continue to run once the button is pressed. Eventually, it shuts it self off. Is there a solenoid somewhere that gets stuck. The solenoid in the front door only appears to operate the ice door. xxxxxx [email protected]
Today, I recieved the new micro switch. Installed it and the water and ice still run continously...eventually they shut off. It appears the micro switch is not the problem.
I paid $28.36 to have the switch delivered. What next?
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Good evening, I see the other tech has opted out. I would have probably thought the same thing at first from your symptoms so the other tech was going by the most common cause. so please don't be mad at him. He's a very good tech. Since this is happening with both the water and ice and the paddle seems to be retracting as it should theres not much else but the dispenser control board. although if the switch is shutting power off to the board it should stop dispensing. does it seem to be the same amount of time this continues on both ice and water ?
I have removed the actuator pad...the water and ice...depending on the lever...still run continuously when I plug the wires (right side) in. I can remove the wires to the micro switch but it still runs. I am certain the problem is not the micro switch or the actuator pad. xxxxxxx
The ice keeps running when the lever is switched to ice. The water keeps running whne the lever is switched to water. When I remove the wires to the micro switch while the waer/ice is running they keep running and eventually shut off. Is is not the micro switch or the pad. xxxxx xxxxxxx
