Question about Refrigerators
I have a Kenmore Elite side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. The ice maker makes ice, but the dispenser won't dispense it. When I press the button to dispense ice, I can clearly hear the motor working, but it is not spinning the ice auger in the bin. If I take the ice bin off, the auger moves freely if I try and move it manually. But I notice that the couplings which attach to the ice bin don't move (I shut the door and press the ice dispenser button and then re-open the door to see if the coupling changed position). I suspect that something may be frozen preventing the coupling from moving, but I don't know how to get to it. I took the front panel off the refrigerator, and there is still more to get through. Anyone know how I can get to the coupling shaft and motor area?

The next step would be to use an "Ohm-meter" to check the switch on the door that is supposed to activate the auger circuit. If the switch is good, then you need to check the wires leading up to the switch for available voltage. (Keeping in mind that you may not get voltage on that line unless the "door closed" switch is closed.) If you have good voltage there, then you need to check the wires leading to the auger motor to see if the voltage gets to the motor. If the connection is good, and you get voltage to the motor, then the motor is faulty.

You might check out this site and ask a question. They have drawings on many of the fridges and I have bought many parts from them.

That could be a sign of a drippy water valve. When water valves get a little age on em they drip like an old faucet. Also if the ice maker itself overfills or is not level then a tad of water gets into the bin. This makes the ice stick together. An unusually long dwell in the auto defrost cycle can also cause the cues to melt and stick together. The only way to fix it is to do some diagnostics.

Tips for a great answer:
maker not working: ---
Its the problem of water inlet valve. It's a
dual valve. This valve has two tubes in it. One for water dispenser and one
for ice maker chamber. The one side of valve is working, but other side of the
valve is not working. The valve is got stuck in one position
