SOURCE: Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice

When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

SOURCE: ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES

Hello margrek
Welcome,

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
company.
7• Discard stale ice.

Why does my control panel show er 1f


Had the same problem with my Kenmore Elite Series Refrigerator. Upon searching for the answer the closest and simplest answer was a faulty fan specific to the ice maker compartment. This fan is suppose to regulate the humidity in the ice maker, but sometimes the humidity becomes too high and that causes the fan to freeze. (A tell tell sign is when your Ice Maker shoot freezes up, or water begins to drip from the Ice Maker and puddles up in the catch tray or on the floor in front of the Refrigerator). When the fan becomes frozen, that causes the 1F error display to come on. There was also a second reason that was consistent with a faulty circuit board, but that did not match as closely as the faulty fan.
Most answers directed you to replace the fan...but I gave this a try first, and by the way my option has solved my problem fan for over two years now. Simply .. open the refrigerator door and turn the Ice Maker off. Then take the ice tray out and dump any remaining ice and clean and dry off the tray and the ice shoot that the ice drops through into your glass. Leave the Ice Maker off for 3-5 days, giving the fan enough time to thaw and dry out. You will have to live with the inconvenience of no Ice Maker for that amount of time .. but you can do that rather than paying an enormous fee to have it serviced in home (unless you're still under warranty). After 3-5 days has expired simple turn the Ice Maker back on. If by any chance this doesn't work..try it a second time but leave the Ice Maker off 5-7 days. Honestly, this should solve the problem. Mine is still working flawlessly. God Bless

What er ff mean at Error message on display of Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer Refrigerator


Hi.

Error ff (er ff) means defective fan detected. Before calling support or before replacing the fan try performing a complete defrost by leaving power disconnected for one day (remove food from inside the unit first). That will fix the problem if the fan was temporarily malfunctioning because of ice formation. If that does not work the fan must be tested before replacement.

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Model 795.77563600. The front digital panel has an error code er if. I understand this means that I have a problem with the ice maker fan. Where is the fan located...


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.
