Re: non stop ice

The clear funnel is either broken or just popped out of place.

if you can get a flashlight and look at the funnel you will see two clips on both sides of the funnel that secures it to the lever just push firmly and it should go back into place. if you dont have any luck you can order the funnel and replace it fairly easily.

one thing that may help you repair this unit is remmoving the front cover of the dispenser.

on the bottom of the cover is 2 slots for a flat tip screw driver. just insert the driver and leverage outward and the snaps will release. (it takes quite a bit of force). be sure to unplug the refrig to prevent getting shocked. when you reinstall the cover you will have to hit the lower portion firmly with the palm or side of your hand to lock the cover back in place.

Frs22zrg ice maker

Hi Don - I see you are having difficulty changing the type of ice that is coming out of your refrigerator. Below are instructions on how to adjust this.

· Take out the ice bin to access the switch in the freezer.
· Underneath the ice bin is a metal rod.
· In the back of the freezer there is a square hole from where the rod came. Put your finger in this hole.
· You should feel a plastic lever. If it's up, push it down. If it's down, push it up.
· Put the ice bin back and try for ice again. You should receive crushed and cubed ice at this time.
· If you push the lever up or down and it doesn't stay in place you should contact an authorized service technician for repair.

If the instructions above do not solve the problem, I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to assist you!

My Samsung Model: RF4287HARS refrigerator stopped DISPENSING ice. It makes it, but only water comes out of both push levers now. I get ZERO help from samsung customer service. There is nothing in

The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.

You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.

How do I get to the ice dispenser lever switch on a Amana side by side

have you ever tried just lifting the lever up and leaving it there. normally that prevents the ice machine from dumping the ice which then stops making the ice until the lever is moved back down. Hope that helps!...Rick

Kenmore model number 253.55693400 when I push the ice dispenser tab the motor to push ice is on, but not pushing ice out.

You have an auger type of ice dispenser, so when you say you hear the motor is on, do you mean it is turning the auger? Take out the ice bin and close the door, push the dispense button and then open the door quickly to see if the auger is turning. If is is then dump your ice bin and let it sit out until it is completely defrosted and dry. Reinstall the ice bin and put the lever down. And see if that will clear the problem. The auger motor is not that strong and if you get any ice build up under the auger it will stop working. So defrosting and drying will normally clear it up.

Ice guide seems to be broken, how can i remove the cover to access on mod. ed22tqxfnoo.. what will it take to replace it ?? t

I have a Whirlpool side-side freezer-refrigerator model ED22TQXFNOO. When I try to use the ice dispenser in the door. nothing happens. No noise as if the motor is turning the spiral gear to push the ice to the end of the storage bin so the ice will drop in the shute to be dispensed. I cleaned out the storage bin for any build up of frozen chucks of ice. The storage bin is all the way in. There's plenty of ice, but it won't dispense.
(1) Is there a Micro switch in the lever I push to signal the motor to turn?
(2) What inergizes the switch in the back that lifts the bar to let the ice fall into the ice dispenser?

Hotpoint RFA70 fridge freezer - refrigerator drain blocked. Have tried boiling water; bleach; p;unging and poking. Defrosted a month ago fixed problem but is back again.

I just cleared a blockage in ours using about 6 drinking straws all attached together ( squeeze end and push about 30mm inside the next one) a small funnel insulation taped to the end and pushed right down the hole until it stops. Then pour hot water into the funnel until it clears. Remember to keep the funnel as high as possible and the hot water being poured in will push any cold water back up the tube, melt the ice and clear the blockage.

I have ice in the ice compartment but when I push for crushed or cubed ice nothing comes out. Despenser runs but does not allow any type of ice to come through the despesner.

do you have the ice bucket on the door? if so there's 2 things to check 
  • 1st is an ice jam in the door funnel. you would need to remove the bucket and inspect the funnel.
  • 2nd is a dispenser coupler that is either frozen in the down position or actually stripped out. to check this while the bucket is removed check the metal piece that is in the very center of the bottom of the bucket (it's either 3 prong shaped or octagonal) then check where it mates with the piece on the door its self. if this piece is octagonal shaped just make sure its not stripped out. if its 3 prong then it should move up and down. if it doesnt then using a hair dryer heat it up until it springs up and you should be back in business.
Let me know if that works. If not post your model number so I can see which unit you have. thanks Peyton

Ice Maker Issues-only crushed ice works, cubed comes out crushed

There is a solinoid in the freezer section by the motor that turns the ice auger. Test it by selecting cubes and with the ice bucket out, open the door, hold the door switch so the lights turn out and push the dispenser button. It should make a loud snap and travel upward. If not then I would say you have a bad solinoid. If it does, then I would look at the bucket. the metal rod that runs along the side of the bucket opens a flap in the bucket that is supposed to let the full cubes drop. look for anything that might cause it to be hanging up.
