    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.

Push the lever to dispense ice and listen for a small click sound,(the micro switch). If you hear a click you will have to determine if there is a broken wire to the dispenser motor or if the motor itself is defective, This will not be a visual diagnosis unless you fine a broken wire in the hinge area.

Side by side Frigidaire. The water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.
