SOURCE: Ice maker not getting water

Hi, The first thing to check is the inlet tube going through the back wall. Make sure it isn't plugged with ice. If the inlet is open, you can remove the front cover on the ice maker and locate the to holes marked M an N. Use an insulated wire and strip off about 1" on the ends. Insert the wire ends into these hole and see if the white gear on the ice maker head starts to turn. Let it advance through the cycle and see if you can hear the inlet valve hum when calling fpr water. If water enters the icemaker, you will need to replace the head modual board or the whole ice maker. There is not much difference in cast.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Ice dispenser not working on Kenmore Elite 106.44423603. Water dispenser works. Ice maker works fine; only ice dispenser failed. How do I get the dispenser motor out for testing? No panel is obvious.


On your freezer door there are three racks from the bottom of the door up. Just above the third rack there is a bulge in the door where the ice chute is and the motor is at the bottom of that bulge looking up from the third rack there are 2 screws.

That is a dc motor and they do just fail without warning! If the switch is "clicking" when you push in the lever then the motor is the culprit.

You will have to remove the bucket/two screws and hex shaft from the top or it will want to fall out of the bottom when you take out the motor.

Ice maker makes ice and dispenses to ice bucket but will not dispense from the door


Check that the motor is connecting to the drive and isn't broken. Also. Check to make sure no frozen chunks are jamming the auger

Icemaker not dispensing ice


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not dispensing ice. I would check to make sure there is no buildup of ice on the inside of the freezer door to prevent any additional ice being dispensed. When you push on the dispenser lever do you hear anything inside of the ice bucket? If you do not hear noises when the dispenser is pushed I would check your ice bucket to assure that it is installed correctly.

If you continue to experience these problems I would suggest contacting a professional to come out and properly diagnose your appliance. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Your question is worded in a way that I might not be interpreting it correctly. I am guessing that it is making ice but not dispensing,or going into your glass when you push the lever, right?

So when you push the ice dispenser lever do you hear a "click" like you do when you push the water lever? Push them slowly and listen.

If no "click" is heard then it is most likely the bracket that holds the dispenser switches. It is made of plastic and very prone to breaking over time especially if children are using it. Part# is WP2180226 and be aware that this is under live voltage so if you are not mechanical then do not attempt yourself and please call a pro to fix.

If you hear a "click" then can you hear the motor turning inside? If yes then it could be something as simple as a block of ice stuck in the bucket preventing the ice from coming out. The owners manual recommends to dump the ice to avoid this roughly every two weeks but most people never do.

Kenmore w/GSI 23 Ice maker: door is distributing crushed ice in both the cube & crushed mode. Is there a reset function to get the cube mode to begin working again when that button is selected? thx,


it sounds like the mechanizme is jamed, (if it has one) remove the ice tray bucket and where the metal rod sticks out the back of the bucket see that where it goes into the fridge is not frosted up, hold the freezer door light button in and activate the ice dispenser watch to see if a solinoid activates a latch if it does not move free it up so that it can move freely up and down... (if this is your model)

Ice Maker GSI-26 dispenses crushed ice and will not dispense cube


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid

check the mirco-switches behind the panel at the dispenser section. basically, when you depress the lever for water or ice, those levers make contact with a switch, and the switch turns on the ice dispenser motor. if the lever is pushed too hard, the switch can be knocked out of position. I had to re-position my ice switch with some duct tape.

Ice maker does not stop working and overfills, then ice dispenser does not work and pushes door open.


Continuous ice production, too much ice in the bucket, ice cubes overflowing the bucket, ice cubes falling behind the bucket or ice lifting the chiller shelf can now be resolved by installing a redesigned feeler arm. The new arm is designed with a slight curve to cycle the icemaker “OFF“ before the cubes overflow the ice bucket. Order part number WR49X10103.

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.
