Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Part not available

I have a Frigidaire FRS26ZGEW4 Side by Side refrigerator that has an ice dispensing problem. The teeth on the gear part of the dispensing drum, p/n 215752800, are stripped. I can not find the part anywhere. Anyone know of a replacement? In fact I would purchase the complete assembly if necessary or an alternative unit if it would fit. Please help.

    I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have searched the internet and have found online parts sources (partselect, appliancepartspro, repairclinic,etc.) but each say it is "no longer available". Maybe you can suggest one to call or email direct.
    Again, thanks

    Nope, wrong part. This one I need is on the dispensor, diagram 2, part #6. They call it Frigidaire part number AP21111709. Any chance there is a alternate from another model? Any other ideas?

    Appreciate your time looking. The ice maker still works, just does not dispense out front door. Will check local suppliers as you recommended.

    Yes parts are available, but not all suppliers are bothered to help customers.

    It would be easier to order it by mail, so please give your country so I may help you find a local stockist.

    Thank you.

Thanks for getting back.

I've searched your model, and found both the main icemaker gear and a complete replacement icemaker unit as a drop-in replacement.

Gear is listed at $5.25 , and complete unit at $ 81.41.

It is usually the fingers or the gear teeth that break.

Try this page for ordering information - Both are held in stock

If I've identified the wrong part - please get back to me If I can help further

Thanks for using Fixya.

    On the link - click 7 on the left - Ice maker and I think it's part #4

    Sorry - Wrong part.

    As it seems to have been discontinued by the manufacturer, the only course of action I can think of is to contact them directly for a more modern replacement of that part. If it was found to be failing in use, they may have redesigned it to be more robust. Try and get this out of them rather than paying for a whole new refrigerator.

    The next course of action is to advertise for the part from local technicians - ask them to source one for you if they can from scrapped machines.

    You may be in the position of making ice manually untill something more serious gives up - at which point you may throw in the towel.

    As with cars - things start falling off untill it becomes serious enough to buy a new one.

Ice aker ks, but does not dispense ice. fgidaire gallery, sde by side

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

Ice dispenser frigidaire

Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

From what you have described it sounds like the issue lies with the door switch, auger motor, or a faulty ice door flapper (the flapper that opens to allow ice to dispense). In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your Frigidaire refrigerator. Best! - Z

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser

Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.
