    THE LIGHTS ARE FLASHING ON THE TOUCH KEYPAD AND NONE OF THE KEYPAD CONTROLS ARE WORKING AND THERE IS NO ICE WATER OR ICE DISPENSING EITHER. I UNPLUGGED IT AND NOTHING RESET...STILL DOING THE SAME.

  • JIMMYJOSH Mar 04, 2008

    more than likely i would be doing the work.

  • JIMMYJOSH Mar 04, 2008

    THANKS, I WILL NEED TO GO HOME TO OFFER YOU THAT INFO. TALK TO YOU LATER.

  • JIMMYJOSH Mar 05, 2008

    OK HERE IS THE PROBLEM..THERE IS A HEATER GRID LOCATED INSIDE THE SMALL FLAPPER ON THE UPPER DOOR THAT KEEPS MOISTURE FROM BUILDING UP WHICH HAS AN INTERNAL SHORT AND IS DRAWING TOO MUCH AMPERAGE CAUSING THE TOUCHPAD CONTROLS TO FLASH ERRATICALLY. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT PART NUMBER THAT IS AND HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO CHANGE?

    those lights sometimes flash when theres' been a power interruption, or some other glitch..try unplugging it for a few minutes to allow the panel to reset.

    sounds like the panel electronics are fried. Are you inclined to do the parts swap out, or is this unit still under warranty?

    ok..so let's find the service manual and parts availability. Can you supply serial or part number from that unit(most likely on back panel label, or perhaps inside door).

Kenmore side by side icemaker


Your product is an IDI (In Door Ice the bucket is in the door) or a Non-IDI? By the way, you mention the Ice maker. The thing is that if the ice maker is not runnning then you don't have ice to dispense and obviously the fact that the motor is working or not is irrelevant. So that's why I suppose that the problem is not the ice maker but the trajectory of the cubes from the bucket to outside of the door.

In the Non-IDI sometimes it happens that the safes in the bucket jump the locks were the bucket resides so the auger motor (the one that move the shaft so you get the Ice) is still running but you can't get ice because the bucket is not in the right position. Just try to relocate the bucket.

You can see if the motor is moving the shaft pressing the light switch that is at the top of the freezer. Then dispense, when you press the switch the main board thinks that the door is closed so you can dispense and see if the motor is moving the shaft.

Other failure mode is the flapper door, it depends if the dispenser works with full electronics or if it's an electromechanical dispenser. Full electronics dispenser use a stepper motor to move the flapper door so the failure is that when you press the pad and the flapper door is closing, if you press it again then it get stucked, the motor dispense but the flapper door is closed. With electromechanical dispenser, maybe is the dashpot mechanism.

If any of these solutions couldn't fix your problem please tell me. I think that I can solve this particular problem.

Ice maker not working in frig


Does the flapper open?
Look from underneath, hit the dispencer lever w/o a cup there blocking your view, does the flapper open up? If not, you may have the same problem as we do.

The problem seems to be a failing linear actuator.
I'm unable to locate a replacement part, hopefully someone can help us.

Linear Actuator info:
Thermotion
115 volt

make sure that the flap is sitting in properly. if it is and problem still happens then i'd say that its a design fault
