How do I access the Ice Dispenser Motor?


Paul, On most refrigerators you would first pull out the bin where the ice is stored. Above that you will see the entire ice maker. First turn off the water and electricity. You will be able to remove the entire ice maker. Before I bought another motor, I would check on the price of a whole new unit. You'll sometimes find that it's not that much different than buying parts. It all goes by accessibility. You can go anywhere and buy an ice maker, but when you only want part of one, then it's a different story.

Our Kenmore side by side refrigerator ice maker makes ice but when we press the ice dispenser lever there is no sound and no ice comes out.


If your refrigerator has an ice dispenser, you are probably used to getting ice right away when a lever or button is pressed. However, if you depress the ice maker button and nothing dispenses, there is an issue with your refrigerator. There are a few different reasons why an ice dispenser would suddenly not work. It is important to troubleshoot your refrigerator first to determine the problem. Some problems can be fixed at home, while others must be repaired by a professional

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer and press the button on the front of the refrigerator for cubed ice.
2 Open the freezer door and hold down the switch on the door, which "tricks" the freezer into thinking the door is closed, and push the lever or button to dispense ice. The motor behind the ice bin should turn. If it does not, this means the motor is frozen.

3 Remove the motor, following the directions in your refrigerator's manual. Heat and dry out the motor with a hairdryer until the motor turns again, then reinstall the motor according to the manufacturer's directions.

Ice Bin or Chute
1 Remove the ice bin to see if it is overloaded. Ice bins that are too full can cause new ice being produced to back up and cause blockage. If this is the case, dump out the ice and rinse out the ice bin with hot water until any blockage is melted.

2 Examine the separator that divides the ice storage bin from the ice dispenser for holes. If the separator has a hole or is cracked, it must be replaced.

3 Watch the flap on the ice dispenser as you hold down the door switch and simultaneously press the button to dispense ice. If the flap does not close all the way, check for ice blockage and gently remove it. If there is no blockage, the flap will need to be replaced.

Hope this tips would help.

Have a nice day!

Kenmore Coldspot Ice Maker Modle #106 56622500 I


these have to be in correctly to lock back in and allow the unit to function. Try removing the bin again and be sure there isn't any small pieces of ice trapped anywhere. Also make sure there aren't any broken pieces from the bin. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Ice auger not working


normally someone has removed the bin to empty the ice or it was pulled out a little by accident. Try removing the bin and make sure that no ice is jaming the auger motor try turning the auger by hand. Hold down on the door switch and have someone push the demand buttom for ice and see if the motor turns. If it does reinstall bin. If it doesnt make sure ice has not blocked it. reinstall bin and try the ice button. hope this helps if this doesnt fix it the drive motor has went out.

Know how to put the ice bin latch and spring back together


I had the same problem. When you put the spring back on the little arm towards the button, use a mini screwdriver or something to pull the spring back and pop the latch part back in the indented spots. Then, it will seem stuck but you just put some pressure on the curved side of the latch - opposite from the button and it will "pop" back into place.
