This is something most people can't do without knowing something about how things work, check water supply, tubing and power. Most water supply comes from under ( in back ) of the unit, if you have water then it's a power problem,if power is ok, a switch maybe the problem. If you can not do this yourself then I suggest a serviceman look at it ( from the firm that the refrig. was made like Sears or GE, Maytag. Don't do anything that will cost you more money - in the long run you will spend more.

Kenmore cold spot refrigerator model # 106.56662500 ice is not dispensing through the door. How do I fix it?


This is common in these units. When the dispenser lever is depressed, an auger motor rotates the auger wire. When the auger rotates, it pushes the ice toward the dispenser door and chute. When the auger is defective, it isnt able to push the ice out of the dispenser. You need to check the auger to determine if it is broken or disconnected from the auger motor. If the auger is broken, replace it.

No crushed or cubed ice being produced


Ice tray may not be filling. Have a look under or on the side of the icemaker., Some have a little button to reset it. Press and hold the button in and see if the ice tray rotates and refills with water.

I have a GE model GSS201EPJWW side by side fridge. The ice maker makes ice but we can not get the dispenser to operate. At times the water will work but not cubed or crushed ice. What can be done to get...


Dispenser works with a motor which might be jammed. When you see the ice storage bin, there is a steel coil which rotates with the motor and ice falls down from the dispenser. See if the coil rotates at all and if so then the motor must be defective.

Have Kenmore sid-by-side refrigerator: 7909621940B - Just changed water filter. Now, no water or ice dispenses. Ice maker is making ice - filled the bin over a few days. But, when I push to dispense...


We also have a kenmore side by side refrig and had the same problem,,,
FIRST, CHECK THE CONNECTION BETWEEN NEW FILTER AND ATTACHMENT POINT,,
IF THE RUBBER GASKET CAME LOSE DURING THE CHANGE, IT MAY BLOCK THE PATHWAY FOR WATER TO FLOW
NEXT, CHECK THE WATER/ICECUBES/CRUSH LEVER SWITCH TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT PART WAY BETWEEN ONE OF THE SETTINGS,
NEXT,CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR UNIT HAS A RESET BUTTON,
THE RESET BUTTON IS USUALLY IMMEDIATELY INSIDE THE OPENING WHERE THE WATER/ICE DISPENSES AND UP, YOU WOULD NEED TO PLACE YOUR FINGER RIGHT DIRECTLY UP BEHIND THE FRONT PLASTIC COVER, AND IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY SMALL BUTTON, I AM NOT SURE WHICH SIDE ON YOUR UNIT R OR L, BUT DIRECTLY UP IN THE CORNER,,
I HOPE ONE OF THESE HELPS !! angi

Ice dispenser will not work


My suggestion would be , to use a hair dryer , aimed at the center of the prongs , so the heat will transfer to the motor armature . Do this , while ocassionally depressing the ice dispensor arm , until the prongs start to rotate . I would also suggest , turning down the freezer temp slightly , and using more often . Even if you do not use the ice very often , the dispensor motor HAS to be actuated more often , to keep it from freezing up .

Must be the actuator to the ice dispenser is stuck against the micro switch. Like somebaody had a bad day and slammed my acutator around. No model number given so I guess you gotta go with this MANUAL fer a reference.

Ice dispenser motor not working on Whirlpool Side by Side Fridge


Have you checked the dispenser to see if it is clogged. It sounds like the motor is drawing to much power to rotate the dispenser wheel.

Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.
