Water dispenser is not working


Does it make ice? If it makes Ice, then you have water to unit. If No Ice and No Water, check water supply. Otherwise, you could have a bad water valve. Remove valve and the line coming off of valve to water reservoir try to dispense water and if valve is good you should have water coming from valve. (have a bucket or bowl handy to catch water).

The ice maker works perfectly in my Sears Kenmore Elite Refrigerator, but the ice crusher doe snot work. When i put the glass under or I push the lever, no ice comes out. I have removed all the ice sevral...


Push the lever to dispense ice and listen for a small click sound,(the micro switch). If you hear a click you will have to determine if there is a broken wire to the dispenser motor or if the motor itself is defective, This will not be a visual diagnosis unless you fine a broken wire in the hinge area.

The ice maker works fine but we can no longer dispense ice from the door. No sound, nothing. Water dispenser works fine though.


There is a micro switch behind the panel above the dispenser lever. It's the switch that the leaver presses on when you push a glass into it to fill with water. Pop the panel off and you will see the little black switch I'm refering to.

Ice maker makes ice but can't dispense ice


Please try this. Remove your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly which is where the Auger (corkscrew) is located. You should be able to see the Auger Motor Drive Fork which is located permanently inside the freezer compartment... opposite the end of the Removable Ice Bucket Assembly that you just took out. Close the freezer door and attempt to dispense ice... if you can hear the Auger Motor running as you attempt to dispense ice... then the Auger Motor is OK. Dump out all the ice that is in your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly and wash it out in your kitchen sink with warm water. Reach into your freezer and put your hand on the Auger Motor Drive Fork ... you should be able to rotate it CW or CCW...it is a little hard to turn but it will turn. Position the Auger Motor Fork to a 12:00 and 6:00 o'clock position. Now take your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly and position its Receiver Auger Fork to a 9:00 and 3:00 o'clock ....Re install the Removable Ice Bucket Assembly into the Auger Drive Fork. Close the freezer door and again attempt operate the ice dispenser... you should hear the Auger Motor again run as you press the ice dispenser. Note....at this same time the Ice Chute Door in the Freezer Door should spring open so that ice can fall out. Of course you have no ice in the Auger at this time...but it all this works then future production of ice will fall out. Note...Usually the Auger Motor never fails. but the whole thing can get jammed with ice and not dispense. Also, the the solenoid that operates the Ice Chute Door fails quite frequently. Last but not least... if nothing is happening... it is a control board type problem. Hopes this helps! Handy Henry

When you press the ice dispenser no ice


the switch you push activates a couple of things. One is a solenoid that opens the door the other is a relay that moves the ice to the crusher.

Since you aren't hearing any sound....and are not getting any ice, I would suspect the switch is bad.....

But before you start taking things apart....try pushing it with your finger rather than a glass.

Check for the length of travel? can you feel or hear a switch click?

MAKING ICE BUT ICE AND WATER DISPENSER QUIT WORKING.


Sounds like a plugged water filter, assuming the water is turned on to the fridge. If you have a manual, refer to the section about water filters. The filter is usually accessible from the front of the fridge at the bottom....requires about a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise. Some units require that the water be turned off first but not all.

If you do not hear a click when activating the dispenser, there could be an issue with the water solenoid (water valve) that opens and closes when you use the water dispenser....agai...check the manual if at all possible.

Psc23sgrd ss ice/water dispenser not working


It is possible. When you put hit your glass against the paddle to you hear the switch click? And can you still select between water, cubed, and crushed ice? Also does the light by your glass come on when you but your glass against the paddle?

When you put your glass on the paddle it pushes in a microswitch. That microswitch will power the light if it is working and also sends power to the board you are talking about to dispense ice or water depending on what you have selected.
