Freezer makes ice but has trouble dispensing it

After aquiring the fridge with a house I found that the freezer would not make ice at all. Seeing as it was turned to the coldest setting I turned it down and let it thaw for a couple days. ALAS! the broken ice maker really does make ice. It was music to my ears.

However, when I press the dispensing lever I can hear the "CA CHUNK CA CHUNK" of ice being dispensed, but the ice does not make it's way passed the Temperature barrier and remains in the door. I'm not sure what I am missing here, but it seems that if I press the lever it should lift the Temperature barrier some how.

Any help would be aprreciated.

Re: Freezer makes ice but has trouble dispensing it

Are you still making ice in the icemaker?? if so then you most likely have a bad water inlet valve (back of unit right side behind the panel) The crappy thing is the icemaker and the water are on what is called a dual valve you have to replace the whole thing.. to test this you will need to sw the wires if you want to get into this let me know

Why are only drawers in fridge cold & not making ice?

Contact a professional. Sounds like either your damper door is not operating correctly and not letting enough cool air from the freezer enter, or there is an air leak that is making ice form .

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.

There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore fridge not working, ice cubes wet, freezer frosting up

You may need a new defrost module. The coils ice up when it is not working. This makes the fridge and freezer only a little cold. About 150 to 250 bucks to fix if you call a service person. Under a hundred for the part.
