Paul, On most refrigerators you would first pull out the bin where the ice is stored. Above that you will see the entire ice maker. First turn off the water and electricity. You will be able to remove the entire ice maker. Before I bought another motor, I would check on the price of a whole new unit. You'll sometimes find that it's not that much different than buying parts. It all goes by accessibility. You can go anywhere and buy an ice maker, but when you only want part of one, then it's a different story.

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot Ice Maker Gear Broken

best bet os to order and replace the entire assy, the gear broke due to an over torquing problem that they fix with a kit that ioncludes a new module and a new stripper bar, the labor involved and chance of breakin more parts make the entire assy a more feasable way to go, you can proble find a repacemnt online for undder $75

Kenmore coldspot refrigerator model 52552100 makes ice but wont dispense it


Below is a fix by another owner of your make and model for the same issue.
Pulled out ice bucket; tried ice dispenser with door latch pressed in and solenoid engaged and motor moved. Tried again and nothing (couple of times). Tried water...all good...good closure of dispensor flap (air pot operated). Opened dispenser (pried off carefully from bottom on this unit not to take off the glued part) and saw the micro-switch broken off of the ice dispenser side. Checked micro-switch (all good). Replaced control bracket...all good to go.

Kenmore ice dispenser not working on side by side 2000 model


If you take the ice bin out and gain access to the motor by removing the cover over the motor area you can check for voltage to the motor when you try the dispenser switch. If it's not getting voltage the switch is bad. If it gets voltage but don't turn or if it bogs down easily the the motor is bad.
