Question about Kenmore 56549 / 56542 / 56544 / 56546 Side by Side Refrigerator
Thanks for using FixYa. To resolve the issue you need to check the following things. Please disconnect the power before you start the procedure. Replace all panels before operating.
The Locked/Unlocked switch allows AC voltage to be sent to the motor through the ice dispenser lever switch when it is in the unlocked position. If the Unlocked switch is defective, the dispenser lever will not operate the motor. To check the switch: Check pins BU/BK and GY using an AC voltmeter. The meter should read 115 VAC if the switch is open, (Locked), or 0 VAC if the switch is closed (Unlocked). Disconnect the BU/BK and GY wires from the Lock/Unlocked switch terminals. Check the switch continuity with an ohmmeter. The continuity should change when the switch is changed from Locked to Unlocked.
To check to make sure that DC voltage is being supplied to the switch pack: Press the Unlocked button. Touch the DC voltmeter’s black test lead to PK/BK and the red test lead to OR/BU, then press the ice dispenser lever. The meter should read +115 VDC ±10%.
To check the Crushed and Cube ice switches: Press the Unlocked and the Crushed buttons on the ice and water dispenser front panel. Touch the DC voltmeter’s black test lead to BR/WH and the red test lead to RD/WH, then press the ice dispenser lever. The meter should read +115 VDC ±10%. Press the Unlocked and the Cube buttons on the ice and water dispenser front panel.
Touch the DC voltmeter’s black test lead to RD/WH and the red test lead to BR/WH, then press the ice dispenser lever. The meter should read +115 VDC ±10%.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
