Some common repair info on testing this type of a problem. Did the
water and ice stop dispensing at the same time?...if yes, look for
things that are common to both. Door safety switch, broken wire.
Ice dispenser only has quit. How some work....putting a glass against
the glass pad pushes on a micro switch that sends power to the
dispenser motor inside the freezer. The ice cube flapper door opens
for the ice to go through the door. The dispenser motor inside the
freezer turns the dispenser bucket arm to pull the ice forward in the
bucket towards the door ice cube opening. The ice falls through the
door flapper opening into the glass.
Things that can happen:
- micro switch broken
- dispenser motor bad
- loose wire on the dispenser
- broken wire
- some incorporate an electronic board that sends the power to the
motor inside the freezer.
