Can you explain more on this fault please?
The drinking water and ice maker water come through seperate valves and piping so unless there's been a massive modification to your machine, the fault must be something other.
OK, It's not making logical sense here.
Fault 1 - Hot between the doors.
The transom between fridge and freezer gets hot when the condenser is blocked or the fan doesn't run.
You've replaced the fan, have you cleaned out the fluff from the condenser?
(Take the grill below the doors off to access the front of the condenser and the rear panel to access the rear of it).
Does the fan run now?
Fault 2 - Water dripping inside the freezer.
Have you switched off the ice maker?
If not, switch it off, does it stop the dripping water?
If water comes out of the water dispenser every few hours, what happens when you press the lever for a glass of water? Does it flood the freezer?
If yes, you have the pipes on the valves reversed.
Did you have them disconnected at the valve to replace the fan?
If yes, take them off and swap them over.
It's not going to be an electrical connection unless you physically removed the wiring to the valves, swapped them over and plugged them on again.
The double dashes in the display indicate the temperature in the freezer compartment is too high.
It will alarm until the temperature gets down to something like -13 degrees C inside the freezer compartment.
Let me know what you find.
OK, so the condenser is clean, clear and the fan is running.
Is it still hot between the doors?
I asked what happened if you pressed for drinking water.
Can you advise please?
OK, we can discount the fan and condenser now as they are not the cause of the problem.
Is the machine running and cooling properly at the moment?
How long since it was switched back on?
Is it feeling colder in the freezer?
If it's gone from - - to 18, it's getting colder inside the freezer.
At the moment, it's colder than -13 degrees C.
You'll need to wait a few hours and see if it gets down to temperature, and then, what happens.
As to the water being dispensed, if it's a momentary activation of the valve, it suggests a wiring or main board fault.
You can't mix up the main board connections as they are all multi plug.
It's very possible.
See what happens with it and let me know.
Which board is currently fitted? new or old one.
Was it doing this prior to the new board being fitted?
Check the wiring harness going to the board, if it's damaged and shorting out as the board is being put back in place, this could cause it.
It can also be a fault on the new board.
You can prove this running with the board out (wiring if it works ok) and by refitting the old board for a while.
Let me know what happens.
OK, I'd suggest checking the wiring to the valves for the water.
If you had them disconnected, the problem with water coming out of the ice maker is the wiring to the valves.
Basically, the power is going to the wrong valve when you want water and same when the ice maker wants water, it spills out the dispenser.
Unplug, swap the wiring on the valves over.
Plug in and try dispensing water.
If it's ok, refit the new board and reassemble the machine.
Let me know how it goes
Can you post the model number of the appliance please?
The 12 digit number beginning 85 would be better, but, you need to post in sections of 4, eg. 8545 1234 5678
Blue and white are the water valve wires.
Black and Brown are the ice maker water
Yes, if you put the blue and white onto the ice maker valve, then, every time you press for dispensed water, it would feed the ice maker.
If you mean, the 2 connections on each valve, then no, the blue and white go either way round on the valve. Same with the other pair.
In that case (you shouldn't be able to get the connections on the board wrong) it suggests a fault in the wiring loom of your machine.
I don't think you can fit the 6 way connector the wrong way round into the board, it's keyed and should only fit 1 way.
No, the valves are powered direct from the main board.
The water dispenser sends a signal when you press the lever, this goes to the main board.
The ice maker sends a signal down different wires when it needs water.
As you get water when you press the lever and the ice maker at the same time, you have a short circuit somewhere.
You have this fault on both boards.
It only leaves the wiring.
The front board does not control the water, it's a simple microswitch activated by the lever.
The ice maker won't work as it won't be getting a water supply.
If you bags of ice into the ice bucket, it will dispense.
If it worked perfectly before then it should work after.
I'd be checking the new harness for the fan/valves against the old one to ensure they are the same.
