The ice maker on my Kenmore Elite refrigerator ( model # 106.57713700) has ice clumping at the top of the dispensing chute. The clumped ice will block ice from being dispensed and/or melt down the front of the refrigerator. What would be causing this to happen?

SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?

SOURCE: 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.

remove the bottom tray that you sit your glass on, push down on the bottom of the trim arround the despenser, lift outward then upward on the trim panel, have a piece of duct tape handy to tape the panel out of your way to gain access to the assembly

There may be ice forming in the water chute causing water to spill out of the chute and pour onto the ice in the bucket. Sometimes the water valve has a slow drip or is slow to shut off. the valve may need replacing. I doubt it is the icemaker but it could be.

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

Glide rails on kenmore bottom drawer freezer keep freezing up


I suspect that you've got a leaky ice maker. Do you have clumps of ice in the bin, too? Many times, replacing the ice maker will solve the problem.

Ge Profile Stainless Steel 26 ft Refrigerator ice maker dispenser


try pulling out the ice bucket, remove all ice and look for signs of damage on the auger mechanism... most of the time the ice tends to clump up and that prevents the auger from moving freely.

Ice maker makes ice, but also drips water


cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks

Hello azcowgirl19

Welcome to fixya,

You said, You have a GE Profile side/side refrigerator which was delivered on 4/19/08. When the ice comes down the chute it makes a lot of noise - so much noise that you cannot hear another person speak within the same room. Is there anyway that this clattering can be cushioned?
Also, the ice seems to clump up into a large ball and when it tries to go threw the coils, it shakes and rattles the entire appliance. Other than removing the lg clump of ice is there anyway to prevent this?

Yes I do recognize the problem.
The ice maker has a couple of defective parts in it!
Lucky for you you still have a warranty for this GE Profile fridge and did not waste anytime looking into it!
In the USA, Call GE at 1(800) GE CARES , and tell them the ice maker has multiple problems so they can service it while you still have your full parts and labor warranty!

Let me know how it goes!
Please remember to leave a rating at our site before you leave!
Thank You, Huuum

Nested Problem?


Marty, sounds like the refrigerator is not going in defrost cycle.There could be several factors causing the ice buildup. Symptoms of this are higher freezer and cold food temps If you could look around the door panel for a model number, Example:106.48062890 I may be able to help you solve the problem.
Causes could be defrost timer, defrost element, element wiring connections, etc. Let me know , Thanks, Sea Breeze
