I replaced the ice door on a Kenmore 106.58904800 model

Customer Question

I replaced the ice door on a Kenmore 106.58904800 model refrigerator freezer. When I hooked the display panel back up, the discharge auger ran without the switch being activated by the arm. I'm about 97% sure I hooked all the wires up correctly. Any ideas about what to do to fix?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 2008
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I'd like to
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Ive been looking online for a wiring diagram but cant find one!

Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks!

Then either the switch is bad or depressed for the auger functions or the dispenser board is defective on the unit. I would take the dispenser apart and check switch #27 and if that is good for the auger get back to me.

When I push in on the chute, I can see the arm hit the switch and hear it click

I'll have to get back to you because I am at work and the refrigerator is at home

OK no problem I would disconnect the switch then and then plug in the board and see if it activates.

I tried that last night by unplugging the wire on the switch that went to the wiring harness connected to the display board, and it still ran! I could also disconnect one wire form the display and the water dispenser would work. Then I switched a couple wires on the display board now nothing works!

OK check the wire harness at the door hinge then.

Could you send me a picture of the wiring diagram so I can verify that I have the wires hooked up correctly?
