Question about KitchenAid Dryers

Open Question

I have a kitchenaid built in refrigerator model kssc48qts02. It's making ice fine but not dispensing it. When I press the door switch I hear a click but nothing else happens.

I am not sure where to start. I hear the door switch activate something, but no motor noise at all.

SOURCE: Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

I had GE come out and look at it. I wasn't home to ask questions. The repair man basically said it was a 'loose connection' in the back which is where the motherboard is for all the electronics. It took him less than 5 minutes to fix and he was gone.

Thankfully - it cost me zilch. I told a small white lie and said we were still under warranty and they didn't ask to verify. Can I get an Amen!

INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

if you lift out the ice bucket you will see the "gear" that turns the auger. The gear is metal but the part on the bucket is plastic and this can become stripped out. Also check that there is not ice frozen around the bottom of the bucket where an ice cube may have lodged the chute door partially open and melted some of the ice in the bottom creating a blockage.

Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Remove the dispensor grill , and also the 2 screws at the bottom of the dispensor front . Lift the front up and out , and remove the plug on the front . You should now see the white switch bracket . On the left side , is the ice dispensor motor switch , when usually , one of the spears holding the switch breaks off , not allowing the ice dispensor to work . If this is the case , the part number is 2180226 . Only held on by 2 screws . When/if replaceing , be sure to put the plastic spacers in the correct position next to both switches , and be careful not to break one of the spears , holding the switches .

I would check the door switch that turn the light on for freezer. When the door opens the switch changes to deactivate the controls on the dispenser panel and when shut should turn it back on. I will help you trace the problem because sometimes there is a broken connection from the dispenser panel to control board. Let me know, Sea Breeze

The chute door is the reason your ice bin is freezing up and also the chute door being open draws warm moist air inside your freezer compartment causing massive amounts of frost and keeps the compressor runing all the time between defrost. You really n eed to get the chute door fixed. What is the correct model number? For the model KSRX25FT dispenser parts click HERE The chute door spring may be broken but you will not know untill you open the dispenser housing. I'm here should you post the correct model number or have questions, Sea Breeze

I have a kitchenaid refrigerator KSRP25FNSS the


HI,
I am assuming that the problem is with dispensing ice only, is the water portion of the dispenser still working? Are the switches in the dispenser making contact, I have seen in some model as yours that the dispenser switch bracket broken and would not make contact with the arms when attempting to dispense. Last question, is the bar to the motor you replaced connected properly? I have seen the service motor have a deep well in it and not make contact with the bin as it rotates.
I hope this helps.

Ice maker will not dispense the ice


The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

Ice and water stopped dispensing


some models of this refrig have a lcok out feature on the dispenser look for a padlock symbol on the dispenser console and make sure its unlocked. if it s not locked out you may have a broken switch bracket behind the console cover. when you press the levers listen very closely and you should hear a click noise letting you know the dispenser switch has activated. Let me know if you have any further questions thanks Peyton

Ice dispenser auger does not work.


Hi, On GE refrigerators the motor is not quiet. Open your freezer, remove the ice bin, press the door switch, make sure it turns off the light, and then press the ice dispenser lever. The solenoid will click, which also opens the ice door and the auger motor will turn on and you can definitely hear it. If the motor runs then inspect the auger connection on the rear of the ice bin, its plastic and they break. On some models, like my GE Adora there is a switch just for the ice maker behind the ice bin. If you need more help let me know as with all long distance troubleshooting we try with the information we have. Thanks and Good Luck!

No ice through dispenser


When you operate the ice dispenser lever, you should be able to hear a little click from a micro-switch that then switches the auger motor and the light on and also opens the flap. If you cannot hear this small click, then the micro-switch is faulty. The ice dispenser only works when the freezer door is closed, so you could also inspect the door light/fan switch for proper operation.
