Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
How do I access the Ice Dispenser motor in a Kenmore Coldspot 106.56539400. I need to replace the motor but I have no Idea how to get to it.
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.

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
