Ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen

My ice maker works but when I try to get ice from the door dispenser all I get is a lot of noise like ice being stirred around and/or crushed but no ice comes out into the glass.  It seems the ice gets stuck or frozen in the door part of the dispenser.

    My dispenser works intermittently with partial cubes getting stuck in the metal fingers used to crush the cubes. We do not use the "crushed" option because of this but has not helped. We are constantly dislodging cubes. The problem started about six months ago (the unit is two years old). The auger and motor seem to work otherwise and are not bound up by anything but the trapped cube. Any ideas on what can be tried?

I see this a lot with people who mainly used crushed ice.  It will leave small pieces of ice behind and add up to a clogged situation.  If you mainly used crushed ice you will need to run full cubes thru every so often to keep the chute clear.  Another cause of this would be the flapper door on the dispenser doesn't close completely and warm air gets in and melts the ice in the bin so it clumps together and won't dispense.  In this case you may need to replace the solenoid that shuts the door and/or the door.  Let me know what you find.

The water line could be frozen. Remove the water filter and see if it frozen. Also, see if the water dispenser works with the filter removed.

Hi, The freezer should be "0", the possible clogging you have could be a leaking water valve or an over filling ice maker. I would have the ice maker checked for volume of water dispenser during harvest, should be 5.5 oz. (2/3 cup), if more the 6 oz. the ice maker is bad. If fails to stop filling or leaks/drips, replace the water valve behind the unit.
I hope this helps.

Water dispenser on refrigerator not working but ice maker is making ice


Most likely a frozen line... If you can hear a faint pump noise near filter when you try to dispense wate, that tells you the pump is woking. rIt could be a frozen reservoir(located on fridge side behind vegetable bins) or the line that runs thru freezer door to the dispenser. Use a hair dryer to thaw out reservoir or try to turn off the unit for a few hours. (That did it for me). If it's the line in freezer door, shut off unit, open freeezer door for a few hours and seal off freezer with a towel or cardboard to keep all frozen. If not this, may be a clogged water line from filter or a bad valve.

Ice dispenser not dispensing ice or water


Check the water filter - it should be at the bottom of the fridge - turn it 1/2 turn to the left. After several months of use (less if you use it a lot) the filter can clog.

Ice maker and now water dispenser does not work


Do you get water to the connector at the bottom of the freezer door ? if you do then the water pipe in the door is probably frozen - read new door ! if not then check thw electrical connector at the bottom of the freezer door as they have a habit of corroding.

Ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen


I would contact Hotpoint direct for this one. It sounds like a design fault to me.

What I think may be going on is that the cubes are melting too much, then refreezing lower down.

Set your freezer to -18, and the fridge to +2 and see if that changes things any.

Check seals in that area. Where is the moisture coming from to generate the frosting? - Is the location high in humidity?
