    Shaved ice feature on Kenmore elite side by side resolved by removing auger motor. One of the plastic gears on the shaved ice motors was stripped out on the shaft of the motor.
    Super glued it back on the shaft and reinstalled auger motor and now we have shaved ice and saved $120 for new motor.
    Problem happened due to stuck ice chute door which allowed warm air to enter freezer which thawed and refroze ice into block in shaved ice bin which when pushed stripped the gear.
    Hope this is helpful.
    Thank God for the knowledge to take something apart and the wisdom to put it back together.
    Merry Christmas

SOURCE: Always dispenses CRUSHED ice

try removing the ice bucket, and on the back wall is a hole approx 1.5 inches square that the brass bar attached to the rear of ice container inserts into,(you may have to put hte container back in partilaly to look under and watch where it slides into) inside thatcut-out is a plunger that slides up and down activating the crushed/cubed option.you can sick you finger in the hole you should seee a plastic hoop that would catch the brasss bar.Try pushing and pulling hte hoop up and down if it does not move freely, youll need to replace the solenoid assy. if it does, then pull allthe way to the lowest positon and make sure when replacing the ice container that the bar falls with in the hoop itself

SOURCE: ice maker not working bosch refridgerator

Had the same problem. If there is ice in the bin make sure the ice bin is in all the way. there is a
drive gear in the back that has to be engaged. If the
bin is emty open the little door where you can see
if there is ice, on the left you will see the square
end of the ice maker unit. Slip your fingers under
the front face, palm of your hand facing up so you
can feel the bottom of the front of the unit. Over
to the left you will feel a button that you can not
see. Just push it in for a few seconds and the unit
should start. One other thing, make sure the limit
switch is pulled down, thats the plastic on the
wire which shuts the unit off if it is full. Good Luck.

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.

Getting shaved ice instead of cubes


Several possibilities, but check first for cubes that are too small (means too little water is coming in during ice maker fill) and those cubes fracture into smaller bits when they are dispensed.

Another possibility is the cube/crushed plate inside the dispenser is stuck. This is a curved plastic piece that lies next to the crusher blades inside the dispenser head of the ice storage bin. For cubes this place must be retracted (swing away from) the crushed fingers to allow the cubes to pass without being broken up.

What kind of fresh drink can i make with an ice shaver?


In the place where i grew up there was an ice cart pulled by two guys who shaved ice on the spot and made very yummy "granita"s (kind of like a slush).
They shaved enough ice to fill a cup and added a bit more so that it looked round and solid at the top. Then they poured on it a bit of flavored syrups. They used to have plenty of fruity flavors that you could mix. The ice would be sweetened and flavored by the syrup and on top they would sprinkle little pieces of fruit or coconut shards. It could be eaten with a spoon and sucked with a straw and it was the most appreciated dessert of the summer.
You could buy a couple of small bottles of syrup to have some flavors that you can mix up into different combinations and make customized "granita"s for your guests.
And even if there is leftover syrup you can keep it for next time as it lasts forever!
Enjoy!

I have a Kenmore side by side, not sure the model, but it's probably 10 years old or so. It has an ice maker with water, cube and crushed ice dispenser. The ice maker works fine, but it will not dispense...


Most of the time the bin has been removed and not put back in properly. When this happens ice blocks the drive motor. Remove the bin and turn the auger by hand make sure it will turn and is not jammed. Now with the bin out push the light button in that turns the light out and have someone push the button for ice while the door is still open the motor should turn in the back make sure thereis no ice blocking it. If it turns nothing is wrong with the motor. The clicking sound is usually the motor jammed by ice or the auger not engaged on the motor. hope this helps good luck

Cube ice button lit up but only dispenses shaved!?


In the back of the freezer behind the ice bucket you will find a switch that goes up and down, chances are it is either stuck in the up postion or the lever on the bucket is in the wrong location

Ice Will not dispense


Check that the dispenser is not locked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the "Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds.          http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/whirlpool.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=110&p_created=1147725595&p_sid=lTIkCMOi&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MzEmcF9wcm9kcz0xOTkmcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PTEuMTk5JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9d2F0ZXIgZGlzcGVuc29y&p_li=&p_topview=1

Frigidaire ice dispenser problem


The ice anger will be controlled by a motor system, the hummming could bea result of stuck rotor or the motor system is faulty. the motor might needs replacement.this will explain why the ice is not dispenced.
