Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
Water works and ice maker works. The light also works. I've made sure that the "unlock" button is highlighted. Still won't 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.

I have a Kenmore Elite Model 106.58963703 and the ice maker clogs about once every three weeks. I have to take the ice out of the container and clean out the frozen ice stuck on the bottom. I then have to take the ice that is clogging the opening of the ice dispenser. What would cause the ice to clog the dispenser? I can hear it crushing the ice, but when it's clogged, it won't dispense.

The micro switches are held in place by cheap plastic tabs. If kids press too hard on the levers, when getting ice or water, the micro switch can be knocked out of place. take the face off the dispenser section, and examine the switches. press the switch to make sure ice and/or water is dispensed. I used some duct tape to put my switch back into place. works great.

The power was off at my huose for 12 hours. When I removed the ice bucket I saw that water condensated and was now frozen around the shaft of the ice dispenser moter. The ice was prevent edthe motor shaft from turning.. I used a pair of needle nose pliers to loosen the 2 mouting bolts of the ice dispense motor approx 1/4 turn and all is well.
My wife thinks it's a miracle and that's all that matters!!!

Evaporator may need to be cleaned with a nickel safe - phosphoric and /or citric acid cleaner. Scale build-up on evaporator from water constantly flowing across it will prevent the sheet of ice from releasing. A mild scotch-brite cleaning pad with mild force to remove scale from the evaporator may also work. Follow up by running clean cycle to remove all dirt and contaminants from ice collection compartment.

Take a hair dryer to the little black hose that despenses the water for your ice water. Sometimes it freezes.
