First make sure that there is not ice clogging the auger. check that connection to the auger motor is secure. If it appears to be fine you will need a volt meter for the following steps. If you are not comfortable using this equipment or do not want to buy one call a repairman. If you choose to continue remove the leads from the auger motor. Configure the meter to read ohms and place the leads across the motor connections. The meter should read some resistance if not the motor is either shorted or a lead has burned completely due to a short. If the motor is fine configure the meter to read volts. Look on the motor and determine if it is AC or DC and configure the meter for this. Connect the voltmeter leads to the motor feed wires and press the ice despense button. If no voltage is observed check the switch for continuity. Replace any faulty parts. If this sounds foreign to you call a repairman.

Kenmore cold spot refrigerator model # 106.56662500 ice is not dispensing through the door. How do I fix it?


This is common in these units. When the dispenser lever is depressed, an auger motor rotates the auger wire. When the auger rotates, it pushes the ice toward the dispenser door and chute. When the auger is defective, it isnt able to push the ice out of the dispenser. You need to check the auger to determine if it is broken or disconnected from the auger motor. If the auger is broken, replace it.

Kristen,
Thank you for giving more information. I believe you will need to replace the flapper on the ice dispenser. I based this answer on the following: you mentioned when the door is held open ice comes out. Let me know if this helps. As you may know, there are several different things that could cause this issue, but this is the most common one of them. Here is a how to video on this type of repair:

LG Freezer ice maker makes ice but wont dispense


There is a mechanical flap (trap door) that should open to allow ice that is being pushed by the auger in the bottom of the bin to fall out. Possibly the solenoid that opens the door does not work, or you just have an obstruction (piece of ice) preventing the door from opening far enough to allow the ice to pass through. Here is some helpful information and instructions.

It sounds like your auger motor has an issue in my opinion. How i check them is: remove ice bin, open freezer door, hold door switch down, depress the freezer ice dispenser button on the door and see if the auger motor has the torque when it turns, if the motor has power and turns but cant turn w/ torque or has power and dosen't turn. you need a new auger motor. lmk if u need more help!

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 maker makes ice but can't dispense ice


Please try this. Remove your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly which is where the Auger (corkscrew) is located. You should be able to see the Auger Motor Drive Fork which is located permanently inside the freezer compartment... opposite the end of the Removable Ice Bucket Assembly that you just took out. Close the freezer door and attempt to dispense ice... if you can hear the Auger Motor running as you attempt to dispense ice... then the Auger Motor is OK. Dump out all the ice that is in your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly and wash it out in your kitchen sink with warm water. Reach into your freezer and put your hand on the Auger Motor Drive Fork ... you should be able to rotate it CW or CCW...it is a little hard to turn but it will turn. Position the Auger Motor Fork to a 12:00 and 6:00 o'clock position. Now take your Removable Ice Bucket Assembly and position its Receiver Auger Fork to a 9:00 and 3:00 o'clock ....Re install the Removable Ice Bucket Assembly into the Auger Drive Fork. Close the freezer door and again attempt operate the ice dispenser... you should hear the Auger Motor again run as you press the ice dispenser. Note....at this same time the Ice Chute Door in the Freezer Door should spring open so that ice can fall out. Of course you have no ice in the Auger at this time...but it all this works then future production of ice will fall out. Note...Usually the Auger Motor never fails. but the whole thing can get jammed with ice and not dispense. Also, the the solenoid that operates the Ice Chute Door fails quite frequently. Last but not least... if nothing is happening... it is a control board type problem. Hopes this helps! Handy Henry

Ice dispenser auger does not work.


Hi, On GE refrigerators the motor is not quiet. Open your freezer, remove the ice bin, press the door switch, make sure it turns off the light, and then press the ice dispenser lever. The solenoid will click, which also opens the ice door and the auger motor will turn on and you can definitely hear it. If the motor runs then inspect the auger connection on the rear of the ice bin, its plastic and they break. On some models, like my GE Adora there is a switch just for the ice maker behind the ice bin. If you need more help let me know as with all long distance troubleshooting we try with the information we have. Thanks and Good Luck!
