Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
When pushing glass against lever for icemaker, the corkscrew does not turn inside but sound like something is trying to work can the parts inside the door freeze it sound like a motor is lock up in the door. it clicks when you push a glass against the lever
The motor is behind the ice bin and yes, it can get water on it and freeze up. I actually fixed one a month ago that I had to remove the motor and let it dry at room temp for a week in order to get it to work when reinstalled. Two or three days and it would freeze right back up in a little while. This usually happens when you've had a problem with the waterfall into the ice reservoir that a bit pours over the edge or when you've defrosted the freezer or left it open long enough to let ice thaw to some degree. You can pull the ice bin out and twist the motor by hand. If it is stuck it is froze but if it moves it is probably bad. You can close the switch with the door open and check with a volt-meter to see if there is voltage going to it if the motor turns freely. It will have a lot of tension but you can turn by hand.
