    I have the Kenmore Coldspot Elite 5779. It makes ice just fine, but won't dispense it. It does groan for a second then stops. Have taken the ice bin out and unloaded all the ice and cleared it out, still have problem. Would hate to make a service call if it's something easy to fix.

    i have taken the bin out and removed the ice and the auger moves freely. I also opened freezer door and depressed the inside door switch and then pressed ice despence to see if the motor would turn. It still makes the same noise like its going to work but does not

    106.5778 / 106.5778700 will not dispense ice. The groan I hear is the ice door opening, but the dispenser motor is not turning. 11/2 years old.

    Have you removed the bin long enough to totally de-ice it?

Whirlpool refrigerator ED5RHEXMT00 makes plenty of ice but is not dispensing any when the door lever is pressed. The water part is fine.


The ice bin slides down in little tracks and the drive mechanism engages the auger. It sounds like you have frost build-up in the bottom of the little slots that the ice bin rests in. The build-up keeps the drive from engaging the auger. I use a hair dryer to defrost all the accumulation under the bin once it is removed. Remove the bin by tilting out and then lifting up and out at an angle. Also empty the bin of ice cubes and check underneath for ice build up on the bottom of it too.

Kitchenaid KSRS25 Ice dispenser blades get stuck


Greetings,
In looking up this partial model # KSRS25, it shows you have
the model with the large ice bin inside the freezer.
My question to you is: Does the auger motor run when you
push the ice lever?
2 trouble prone parts on this model. Both in the case of NO
auger motor activation.
#1 broken pin that hold the micro-switch on to the switch bracket.
Item # 15

1690545?addlogo=false

Next #2 and the Worst, A Broken Blue wire or wires in the wire loom
under the freezer door hinge. Un-repairable new door needed if still
available.. You have to get creative restoring the power.
So before I continue, Does the Auger motor Run?
And if it does, remove the bin and close the door switch that turns the
light off, and tape switch shut. With door open and ice cradle pushed
in watch the auger drive fork turn? Is the the key hole stripped in the
fork.(rounded out) May need the fork or motor. #9 & #2

I have a Kenmore side by side, not sure the model, but it's probably 10 years old or so. It has an ice maker with water, cube and crushed ice dispenser. The ice maker works fine, but it will not dispense...


Most of the time the bin has been removed and not put back in properly. When this happens ice blocks the drive motor. Remove the bin and turn the auger by hand make sure it will turn and is not jammed. Now with the bin out push the light button in that turns the light out and have someone push the button for ice while the door is still open the motor should turn in the back make sure thereis no ice blocking it. If it turns nothing is wrong with the motor. The clicking sound is usually the motor jammed by ice or the auger not engaged on the motor. hope this helps good luck

Ice auger not working


normally someone has removed the bin to empty the ice or it was pulled out a little by accident. Try removing the bin and make sure that no ice is jaming the auger motor try turning the auger by hand. Hold down on the door switch and have someone push the demand buttom for ice and see if the motor turns. If it does reinstall bin. If it doesnt make sure ice has not blocked it. reinstall bin and try the ice button. hope this helps if this doesnt fix it the drive motor has went out.

Ice dispenser will not dispens ice . light dims when pushed. ice maker works fine


It may be a good Idea to remove the ice bin, clean and dry ant the same time with bin removed see if while pushing the door light switch and the dispense ice control if the auger fork in the rear of the ice bin that normally turns the auger will rotate. Sometimes ice or water collects in the bin and locks the motor from turning and sometimes the motors go bad. Tell me your results, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice dispenser auger does not work.


Hi, On GE refrigerators the motor is not quiet. Open your freezer, remove the ice bin, press the door switch, make sure it turns off the light, and then press the ice dispenser lever. The solenoid will click, which also opens the ice door and the auger motor will turn on and you can definitely hear it. If the motor runs then inspect the auger connection on the rear of the ice bin, its plastic and they break. On some models, like my GE Adora there is a switch just for the ice maker behind the ice bin. If you need more help let me know as with all long distance troubleshooting we try with the information we have. Thanks and Good Luck!

Ice maker auger not turning


WELL DID YOU GET THE PLUG OUT OR END UP CALLING SERVICE ?AND FOR MY HONESTLY GOOD OPINION AND TRUTH IN ADVISING YOU!
YOU GAVE ME AN INAPPROPRIATE RATING AT FIXYA.COM
Shame on you! I know, sometimes the truth hurts!
BLESS YOU ANYWAY NGFAM1


There are many parts in this component that may be the culprit .
One or more will need to be replaced.
This is not easy to diagnose. I've seen service order parts 2 or 3 times till they completed the ice maker repair on a side by side fridge!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

FRIGIDAIRE SIDE BY SIDE ICE DISPENSER


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.
