Frigidaire side by side not dispensing ice

Ice Dispencer on WP rrefrigerator model ED5GVEXVD07 not dispensing ice...Ice maker is working fine, auger works fine, chute and gate not frozen or clogged....I believe the problem is with the gate on the near end of dispenser not opening....At the rear of the freezer, there is a solenoid activated plastic part with a square hole that activates up and down to operate the spring loaded wire that controls this gate...Spring is OK and by holding the button on the side of interior freezer door, I was able to observe the solenoid activating the square holed plastic part up and down when ice dispenser was activated... I have removed and reinserted the ice container several times, cleaned the rails etc, but still cannot get the thing to dispense ice either crushed or cubed...I suspect the gate isnt working for some reason or another..Suggestions appreciated.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Model GLHS68EGSB2, ice maker will only

You need to take out the ice bucket, empty it, let the bucket sit in the sink for a few hours. Ice builds up in the crushing blades and jams them, let all the ice melt out of it and it will be fine

Have a Side by Side Frigidaire Ice MAKER and water is OK, Ice Dispenser thru the door just stopped working. I bench tested both the solenoid and the auger motor with 120Vac and both work fine.


Did you check to see if your ice maker is working at all? What are you taking voltage readings at augur motor if it is working? - does not make sense unless you have all sorts of time on your hands. Test water solenoid for ice maker?Need parts? Go to link Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

Ice maker crushes ice but wont dispense Crushed ice


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23H7CS, is crushing your ice, but will not dispense the crushed ice. It sounds like the dispenser is possibly jammed. Follow the following steps for a possible resolution:

    1)The ice has melted and frozen around the auger due to infrequent use, temperature fluctuations, and/or power outages. Remove the ice container, thaw, and empty the contents. Clean the container, wipe dry, and replace it in the proper position. When new ice is made, dispenser should operate.

    2)Ice cubes are jammed between the ice maker and the back of ice container. Remove the ice cubes that are jamming the dispenser.

    3)Ice cubes could be frozen together. Use the dispenser often so that cubes do not freeze together.

    4)The ice cubes are hollow or smaller than normal. The ice & water filter cartridge could be clogged. Replace the filter cartridge. Dispensing system operates best at 20 - 100 psi water pressure. Well water pressures should fall within this range.

    If the above does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Turn the power back on and try dispensing crushed ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

    -Best Regards-

pull the ice tray out, you will see a silver thing in the back that turns the auger,, push the ice dispense button ( you might have to hold the door switch in) and see if it turns, if it does you need to replace your ice tray,, if it doesn't you will need to replace the solenoid or the motor itself

Ice dispencer not dispensing ice


Ouch, if your auger won't turn, pull out the ice tray unit. At the back you will see the gear for the auger unit. Try and move it, both clockwise and counterclockwise. If it won't turn - you have a motor problem and needs replacement. If it turns too freely, then you have a weak motor and it will not push the ice.

We have had this problem on occasion. The lever up in the ice dispencer gets jammed with frost and ice. If you remove the ice bucket/auger and let it thaw or just rinse it with water and dry it. Give it a try. -Matt

Sid by side ice dsspencer and water dispencer(all the indicator light suddently are shut off) not working


you could have a problem with your dispenser module. a burnt pcb that could lead to all of your problems. switches not working, lights not working, dispenser not working, etc.

check your dispenser module and if you find a burnt part or a burnt PCB, then replace it.
