Frigidaire Water Dispenser Won't Stop
 
I have a side-by-side Frigidaire refrigerator, model FRS26ZNH. Most of the time when you push the actuator it takes a 10-20 seconds for the light to come on and dispense water or ice. When this problem occurs sometimes the filter light will come on and sometimes it won't. If the filter light doesn't come on then you have to release the actuator and push it again. If the filter light comes on then you can hold it for 10-20 seconds and it will normally work. When it does start working it will keep dispensing water or ice even after the actuator is released. If you push the actuator again and release it, only then will it stop dispensing. The water pressure is good once it starts and it has no trouble making ice. The only steps I've taken is to change the filter. If I must take the front off to fix the problem can you please explain how to do this without breaking the facing.

Thanks

Bad/sticky switch may be suspect.

Once we have the correct model#, we may have something.

The full model number is FRS26ZNHW3. I left the last 2 characters off thinking that was just the color.

Thanks.

Jeff, to you believe part 7 is the one that's bad? Also, looks like I need to take this apart from the front and not through the rear of the door. Any tips on removal?

Thanks

That is very possible for the switch itself, something in the mechanism holding the switch(s) on, linkage broken/stuck.

Front only yes.

Switch Fixed the Problem
 
Ordered micro switch (item 7 on diagram) and this fixed the problem. One of these 2 switches was sticking just enough to keep it from turning off. Jeff, thanks for the help.:)
