    We have the same problem on our FRS26HF7BW1 side by side and HAVE just replaced the auger motor. Still, no movement of auger motor. When you push the paddle, there is a click and the motor hums, but the auger will not turn. You can reach in and physically turn the auger motor, but it will not turn on it's own.

    ice dispenser problem

  • bthomas1234 Jul 01, 2008

    Mine is a Frigidaire FRS26HF7BB2. Per comment "You should see the drive gear rotating on the back panel. If it is not rotating, this is your problem. " So the drive gear is not rotating for me and I want to relace this augur motor. Anyone have quick steps on replacing the augur motor? It looks like you disconnect the plastic clip power connector, remove 2 screws at the bottom of the augur 'housing' and remove this whole piece. Then begin taking off screws until you get to the auger motor. Does this sound about right?

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!

Your auger or your auger drive is locked up. To test which, remove the ice bin from the freezer and set it aside. Now, with the door open, hold the light switch in and activate the ice dispenser on the door at the same time. You should see the drive gear rotating on the back panel. If it is not rotating, this is your problem. The auger drive motor and gear box is either frozen (can be thawed out) or locked up and failed (needs replacement). If the drive gear rotates, the problem is in the ice bin itself. Dump all the ice out of there and inspect the auger. Is it frozen? Locked up? Are there any broken pieces which have caused the auger to get out of alignment and become jammed?

Problem is with a side by side frigidaire. It's blowing warm air. I took off cover to icemaker. I then put my screwdriver to one of the gears and turned it clockwise, about 1/2 way. I plugged the fridge back in and it immediately began to blow cold air. It worked great for about a month, and is now blowing only warm air, again. After hearing contradicting solutions from a few people...im puzzled. Will replacing the icemaker solve this problem??? thanks

We finally got it fixed! It took a few visits from a refrigerator repair company, but it had nothing to do with the auger/auger motor. After all the auger always moved freely when turned by hand. We also replaced the auger motor, with the same results, just a hum with no ice.

Finally, it was determined that a circuit board behind the control panel on the front of the freezer went bad. Call a repair guy, this isn't something you can troubleshoot and fix yourself.

SOURCE: frigidaire ice dispenser problem

The ice anger will be controlled by a motor system, the hummming could bea result of stuck rotor or the motor system is faulty. the motor might needs replacement.this will explain why the ice is not dispenced.

Kenmore 50594000 with in the door ice dispenser. the Unit is making ice but will not distribute it through the door. nothing happens when you push the door dispenser lever. The unit dispenses water...


What usually happens on these is the bracket that holds the switches for the ice and water dispenser breaks and that is typically on the ice side.

The best way to check is to open the door and push the water dispenser lever with your hand. As you push it in and gradually get farther you will hear a "click". That is the switch.

Now do the same with the ice side and if you do not hear that click then the bracket is broken. Easy fix but everything back there is live so make sure you are confident ,and safe around power!

Unplug it! Part# is WP2180226

The red light may or may not be on this model. The first generation of ice maker optics had the spot for it but whirlpool never hooked it up. The second generation blinked when the door was open but it was for the tech to determine if they could "see the other side". This light has no function for ice dispensing.

The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working


We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)

Ice and water dispenser not working but light on constantly


CM, there are 2 things that'd cause this. One is inexpensive, the other is not. First, check the cheap one... That rectangular rubber piece in back of your dispenser area is only a cover for a cantilever device. When you push in on this with a cup, the cantilever swivels back toward you and makes contact with a micro-switch. This switch sends power to the integrated circuit board which, in turn, performs the function you requested (cubed, crushed, water). OK... unplug your fridge. Then use your ears to diagnose this. Push the actuator pad several times in and out and listen for the tell-tale "click click" of the micro-switch. If you hear it clicking, it's good. Plug your fridge back in. Now for the expensive part. If your micro-switch clicks, your dispenser control board is fried and needs to be replaced. (I'm afraid that this is the case because the board controls the light as well as all the other functions.) UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE REPAIRING! To gain access the board, use a small flat blade screwdriver and remove the fascia panel starting at the bottom first. Just begin prying it gently off. Then remove the screws that are holding the board assy in place and gently pull it out. Take note of all of the wiring so you can re-install it correctly. The board number you need is #61005274. Unfortunately, it lists for about $100. A professional repairman would charge you over $200 for the repair, so you're actually saving money here! BTW, we recommend using a Belkin Surge protector for all appliances that utilize electronic controls. (you wouldn't plug you computer directly into a wall outlet, would you?) We regularly use these... http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(a1q3xi45sxgfbzm0qejhei55)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=3115672
