Ice dispenser circuit board removal

The auger spins by hand, not electrically. The ice maker makes ice. The auger does not move the ice to the shoot. When the switch is in either cube or crushed, no ice is moved to the shoot. How do I get the front panel removed? I tried to pry it, but don't want to break the plastic. The manual says it is one piece. Any ideas? Thanx for the help.

    Yes, I can turn the motor/auger by hand. but when i push the lever, no nothing, no noise no spinning no nothing. It is as if there is no power to the auger

  • johnsipes Nov 29, 2008

    No power to auger with door switch held down with paddle held down. I think the auger is not getting power. I believe it is the circuit board or possibly the solenoid assembly that connects to the auger motor. Is there a way to troubleshoot these two items? With drip tray removed, there are no screws evident for panel removal. Model is Sears Kenmore model 106.52572201 if this helps.

    With door open, and light switch depressed (light goes out) and dispenser paddle pressed all the way down and ice bin removed, the auger does not turn. With either cube or crushed selected, auger does not turn---no hum no nothing. How do I test the wiring harness on the door? I'm trying to get to the ice dispenser assembly off from the from the front of the door to expose the circuit board. how do I remove it?

Does auger motor get power when paddle is depressed? Must hold in door switch to check. Front panel screws in at bottom; remove drip tray. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

    Check wiring harness at top of door. Check microswitch at dispenser to see if it really closes. If it does then that circuit board is bad. Solenoid has nothing to do w/ auger motor running.

  • JEFF SIEGEL Nov 30, 2008

    All this time I thiught you had a frigidaire- model# you gave after a few replies indicates you have a Whirlpool built-unit. There is no circuit board, only switches. If light does not come on door then there is a bad harness connection as that would indicate no power to facade. Harness in under top hinge. To get off facade pop it off at the recessed areas at the underside. It snaps on, so it has to snap off.

Why won't ice dispense from ice maker?

Pull out the ice storage bin from the refrigerator. Empty the bin if it is full. Add some ice into the bin. Reinstall bin into refrigerator. Make sure the refrigerator door(s) are closed. The ice will not dispense if the door(s) are open. Press the ice dispenser with a glass underneath it to start dispensing ice. Listen for a whirring sound. If there is a sound, then the auger that moves the ice cubes is working. Check the ice shoot in the door to see if it is blocked with ice. If you don't here any whirring sound the motor that runs the auger is probably bad. Then you will have to replace the whole ice maker assembly.

Ge Profile Stainless Steel 26 ft Refrigerator ice maker dispenser

try pulling out the ice bucket, remove all ice and look for signs of damage on the auger mechanism... most of the time the ice tends to clump up and that prevents the auger from moving freely.

I have a GE Profile "Artica" and the ice maker does not distribute when a glass is pushed against the door flapper. The ice make rotator does not start to spin even though ice is in the bin.

Remove the ice bin and try to turn the U shaped metal part, located behind where the bin was, by hand. You should be able to turn it by hand with just a little effort. If it does not turn, you have a frozen ice auger motor. If you try to thaw it out, it will just refreeze. You need to replace the auger motor. If it does turn my hand, you probably have an issue with the auger, dispenser control board, or door switch.

Ice maker will not dispense the ice

The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

Have same or similar problem. MY problem turns out to be that the Auger turns fine, but there is a little metal blade that attaches to the end of the auger and transfers the spin action into this auger "hopper" (for lack of a better term) which actually accepts the ice that has been moved from the back of the ice bucket by the metal auger and then dispenses the ice into the hopper which falls into the glass. the issue is one of crappy design. It turns out that this little blade has a rectangular opening in the middle that the rectangular end of the auger fits into. If this rectangle opening gets stripped (as mine has done, and ALL are likely to do) then the auger spins, the ice is moved forward but none are picked up by the hopper, and none (or very few) fall into the glass.
Everyone should check to see if this is the case. If so you may need to order a new blade, or a new auger, or a new refrigerator.

Good Luck!

Ice dispenser not working

Scorpio, remove the ice bin itself, dump the ice and see if you can move the bin auger by hand by turning the actuator in the rear. If the bin is ok, with the door open and the door switch held in see if the auger motor is turning when pressing the ice lever. If it's not turning the next logical step is to see whether the auger motor is getting voltage when calling for ice. Make sure the door switch is closed. The part number for the auger motor on the posted model is wr60x0202. Hope this gets you going..Catriver.
