Hi

Can you post the model number please.

Also when you ask for water do you hear a thudding noise?
Will it change from water to ice and to crushed ice?

Regards

Hi

The model number is *****

It does make a noise but only a sort of whirring noise as the cubed ice drops into the dispenser.

It won't do crushed ice - only cubes and then water but only once youve cleared the dispenser of ice!

Hi

Thanks for that. On this model given the fault you describe this is going to be the control board in the freezer door at fault.

As this is the control board that selects which ice and water to do. Now i have replaced loads of them in the past for faults like this which you have.

So to cure this that control board in the door will need to be replaced and that should get it back to normal again from there.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.

Ok - is that an expensive part? Do you have a rough idea of how much it would cost?

Hi

Im afraid this isnt a cheap part. You are looking at about £200 just for the part. If you want the part number for it its 67003623
