Question

Frigadaire water dispenser wont stop turning on


I have a side by side Frigidaire refrigerator and the water dispenser in the door will come on at random and dump out half a glass of water then turn off.
The ice maker isn't making much ice either. Can anyone give me any idea why this is happening?

By itself? If yes, sticky/bad switch, bad electronic dispensor board ( if used on your model ), ice or moisture inside the shorting out, poor/low water pressure causing the fill valve to stay open.

Make sure the freezer temp is below 15F to cycle the icemaker on and low/poor water fills will also cause slow ice production.

Sorry the model # is frs6r4eb7

It comes on by itself every 30 minutes or so. It kinda makes me think that the water that is coming out is actually meant for the ice maker but instead is coming out the door. Is that possible?
The fridge was manufactured in Oct 06

If all else checks ok, this unit has the dreaded Frigidaire diodes in the icemaker and chilled water wiring. These are suppose to pass power in one direction only and if shorted the chilled water can come on when the icemaker is calling for water or the icemaker can over fill when someone is getting a glass of water

Diodes don't show in the parts breakdown, may need to call local parts depot to check on them if needed.
