Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Can anyone tell me why I am getting 120v on the neutral side on the light and auger motor.  There should only be 120 when light is on and the motor running.  This is what I believe is keeping the light and motor from operating.

You will get a 120v reading on the common side if the neutrals connect to another component that is running and you check to ground. Check the wiring diagram, all the common connect together at some point.

Dispenser door opens, but auger motor doesn't operate for cubes or crushed ice.

I believe that voltage to the auger motor should be DC voltage. Yes it could be a relay on the board causing this and it could also be the Auger Motor 2252130

How do I wire an intermatic t-103 timer switch

The T-103 has a 120Volt clock motor

From there, the wiring can go two directions depending on your Load voltage (load is the fan, light or motor that timer turns on-off)

Here is a link that shows exact wiring:

When wiring the T-103, steps 1-2-3 are true for 120V or 240V installation:
1) A white Neutral wire is always connected to terminal A (Neutral wire connects to Neutral busbar in breaker box)
2) A black Hot wire is always connected to terminal 1 >> this hot wire can come from 120V or 240V breaker
3) Black wire going to Load (fan, light, motor) is always connected to terminal 2
The following step is true for 120V Load
4) if Load is 120V, then white wire from Load connects to terminal A
The following steps are true for 240V Load
5) Only the neutral wire connects to terminal A as described in (1
6) The second Black hot from breaker box (240V has 2 hot wires) connects to terminal 3
7) The second White going to Load connects to terminal 4

Here are 2 more links that show how 120V and 240V circuits are wired

Kenmore ice dispenser not working on side by side 2000 model

If you take the ice bin out and gain access to the motor by removing the cover over the motor area you can check for voltage to the motor when you try the dispenser switch. If it's not getting voltage the switch is bad. If it gets voltage but don't turn or if it bogs down easily the the motor is bad.

Icemaker auger

To see how the auger goes back together, go the the Sears parts web site and put in your model number. It will show the parts list and a diagram. You may be able to print it out, Don't remember if there is a print option or not but if you have a screen capture program you could also.

Ice Dispenser motor/Dispenser light

I assume that the problem is that the ice dispenser is not working. If you have put 120v onto the auger motor and it won't go, then obviously the motor is faulty. Reconnect the motor to the wiring harness and put your tester on the white & blue wires. Push the door switch so the fridge thinks that the door is closed and push the ice dispensing lever. If you get 120V to the motor and it won't go, replace the auger motor.
