Question about Kenmore 56549 / 56542 / 56544 / 56546 Side by Side Refrigerator
The helix cap is worn so the auger slips out of place and jams on the side of the ice bucket. How do i get the old cap off and the new one on
SOURCE: ice maker failure
1) Check the filler tube which allows water to enter the dispenser through the back wall of the freezer. This tube may be frozen inside. You can pull the tube out gently and clear it. 2) The inlet valve may be faulty/blocked. Where the water connects to the water valves behind the fridge, try to swap the plugs around from the one valve to the other. They should be colour coded. Then try dispensing water. If water runs into the ice-maker then the ice maker valve is faulty/blocked.

not knowing your ice maker model
if you have a white box like cove on the end,
pop that off
you will be looking at the ejection moter wheel
to the botom right, you should see two holes
one T one H jumps those out with a small peice of wire, you may need to hold the door switch on the freezer,,,,
if you jumped it out correctly, yo will hear a definitive click,
take out the jumper
watch the whole cycle 3=mins
keeping an eye on the ice machine the whole time
if it does everything but eject your motor is stipped
and you will need a new one

Check the ice storage container. The
ice dispenser will not dispense ice until the first supply ice has dropped into
the ice storage container.Remove excess ice from the back of the
ice container. Make sure ice cubes are not jammed between the ice maker and the
back of the ice container.
auger won't engage or turn
to dispense ice.Remove the ice bucket and with a hair dryer warm up
the inside where the fork is that turns the auger in the bucket and try it and
if this does not help then you will have to replace the auger motor ,, chances
are the motor is just froze up .--------
If there is nothing jammed then try this./Remove the ice bin out.And then clean the ice bin.
Rotate the auger with your hand.If its hard then there is problem with auger motor.If the auger is not rotating fine then its faulty auger motor or the auger motor is frozen,if you notice ice getting collected there.
Take a hair dryer and blow hot air on the auger motor for few minutes.Take care you dont blow hot air continuously.
But if that is not helping then disconnect auger motor connecting wire wait for 2 minutes clean the connector and reconnect the connector back and see.If that is not helping at all.Then,replace the auger motor.
