Hi Kelly Whirlpool fridge model number E D5FVGXWS00 Problem with ice arm had to glue arm not coming down is there a power switch that I have to turn on - 2nd front water and ice dispenser seems to be self contained is there a lithium battery and how do I pull off the front to investigate appreciate your help Kelly thank you
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No I can't afford it thank you

I understand Are you researching that model number?

The ice maker switch is with that arm. When it is up, the ice maker is off. When it is down, the ice maker is on.

There is no battery, the front panel is powered through a wiring harness that comes up from the lower hinge.

I understand about the arm but is not going down I don't wanna force because the the mounting plastic that holds the hinge had to be glued and a wonder what I can do to get the arm down. If you can help with that 1st then I'll talk to you about the the front dispenser
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I unplugged it to see if it would reset didn't work

If the arm is not able to come down, the module at the front of the ice maker is bad or you accidentally glued the bail arm.

Know the arm of moves back-and-forth I didn't glue it just the plastic, the unit might be badd? Kelly do you know the approximate cost of that unit
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Does the ice maker control the front that dispenses the water and the ice?

Yes, the module is faulty then. I will get you information for that.

Thank you for the link up did you get my last text concerning the the front ice dispenser and water dispenser How do I pull off the front panel and what am I looking for

You probably don't need to remove the dispenser panel. Is it just dead, no lights or operation?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Right - that link you gave me will that also give me information on replacing that front unit

That link is for fixing the ice maker only.

As for the dispenser, at the bottom of the door is a black mesh sleeve that has the wiring harness in it. With the refrigerator unplugged, carefully cut a small hole in that mesh or pull it apart to see if any of the wires are broken inside.

I don't see mesh it's plastic so I cut a hole in that plastic in then pull the the the whole front panel off and then investigate the wiring?

NO, DO NOT DO ANYTHING WITH THE FRONT PANEL.
