Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Last ice had built up on the ice dispensing chute and on the side vent leading refrigerator side last night everything started to defrost cleaned fan and coil from dust. now only fan kicks on. I have a side by side dispensing unit model # 596.50399001
Wait for about 4 hours and plug it again. let the compressor cool down. it could have tripped it's thermal overload.
then observe if the compressor would start. it would vibrate, make a little bit of noise and heats up.
if it is trying to start and can not start, then it could be broke already.
tnx 4 using fixya,

Tips for a great answer:
Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your inquiry!
I understand that your icemaker is not dispensing ice in your Frigidaire refrigerator. I would recommend checking the dispenser chute, if there is a blockage of ice within the chute it would not dispense. When you press on the dispenser do you hear a noise? If you do that could be the auger trying to push the ice out, if you do not hear a noise it sounds like it be a potential problem with the dispenser or control panel. I would seek assistance from a technician to come out and properly diagnose your refrigerator. I hope this helps. -Matt
