Frigidaire Ice/Water Dispenser


Hi Tricky,

Just put in the lever. Works great!! My fridge is a little differently configured. The ribbon cable unplugs from the bottom of the front control panel, not from the front of the board. I was able to remove the screws holding the retaining plates over the lever pivot arms without removing the whole thing from the fridge. Worst part is doing it wearing bi-focals. Thanks for thr great tutorial, it certainly made this much easier.

Jim

Good Luck

Frigidaire Ice/Water Dispenser


We just replaced our water actuator and after plugging everything back in, the ice dispenser runs continuously even though not being activated. Strange thing is, we unplugged everything before we ordered the part to be sure we could fix it & everything was fine. Any thoughts anyone????

OK I am just picking up on this and when you said water actuator, you are referring to what part of the acuator? Now, I do not see a model number for your refrigerator, that will help me see what type of Ice Maker, and water dispenser you model has. I have a page that shows about every appliance but Sears Kenmore model numbers. Kenmore numbers look like this for example 326.2564789 Click here=> Appliance Model Number Locations let me know, I do not mind helping you.

I'm referring to the plastic piece that you push to dispense the water. I have a Frigidaire glrs234za. Thanks.

After replacing the water dispenser lever, I changed the wf2cb filter. Now it drips. I put a little plumbers grease on th o-rings, but it only quit dripping for a couple of days. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jim

I noticed you listed the part number of a Frigidaire Refrigerator but no model number. Click Here=> Appliance Model Number Locations find your model and I can start there but you need to have a closer look at where the water is bypassing the Oring. If like me you could not thread a neddle without a microscope so look carfully for a crack or or damaged/pinched O-ring seal. Insure the water is truly coming from that area. I will be able to help you better with the The Frigidaire Model Number. The replacement filter Click Here=> WF2CB Water Filter with dual o-rings on both sides. Something is pinched or cracked. I can get the user manual with model number.

Hi Tech,

Thanks for the reply. The mod# is glrs267zaw4. I popped the filter out and put a little more plumbers grease on the o-rings this morning. No leaks yet today, but its only been 4 hours. I didn't see any evidece of pinching or cracking on the rings. This is a new filter, seems like it would be okay. It just slides in and connects with a small latch in the rear of the filter holder.

Thanks for your help,

Jim

Click here=> GLRS267ZAW4 User Manual page 14 is important for your model and Here=> GLRS267ZAW4 Wiring Diagram
This is a little strange for the filter or water supply on that side of the water control valve has negative pressure until the dispense water is pressed or ice maker come on. something may be defective in the outer housing that covers filters. appliancepartsse@yahoo.com I am still looking for a answer on this end. The only photo of the parts I have found is in your manual so far.

I sure appreciate your help, it's dripping again. Looks like the filter is a little cock-eyed. It fits nice and tight, but looks like maybe it was just molded or put together off-center. And I mean just a fuzz off. How's that for a technical term?

For a technical term, fuzz off is being nice! As for where purchased I would ask for a refund, exchange or ask them to fuzz off. Good luck and keep me listed, This is all I do Appliance 911 and keep up about thirty websites.

Hi Tech,

Thanks for all the research. The filter still leaks. I just tried reinstalling it with the ice-lever up, but no luck. I checked with the seller and another parts dealer and they both think it's the filter latch. The other parts dealer had another complaint like mine yesterday, on a filter they sold on tuesday. Just seems like grasping at straws. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Jim
