As the title says, my side-by-side front dispenser does not light up nor will it dispense water or ice. It does continue to make ice, and the interior lights operate when the door is open.

I recall have this problem a couple of years ago, unfortunately I don't recall how it was fixed. Must have been the Kenmore genie...

Any ideas?

Thanks Jeff for the quick reply...would all the controls and lights be disabled if the door/light switch were bad? I've manually pushed the tab/switch in but no lights come on, is there a reasonably easy way to get at the switch and then test it?
Thanks,
Chris

Yes.

Power off first, pry it out with a putty knife or flat screwdriver.

and then test it?
