Question about Frigidaire Gallery Series GLHS269ZDB 36" 26.0 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ 7 Button Dispense...

Open Question

The motor for the ice dispenser continues to run

The motor on the ice dispenser unit runs constantly unless I open the door to the freezer. The light on the door dispensing part stays on even in the off position. How can I make it stop? I resorted to keeping the door ajar because the motor had a slight burning smell after running for 6 minutes. The little bar on the outside of the door that you normally have to depress to get ice or water stopped working. Ice kept spraying all over the floor so I removed the ice bucket and put the "arm" in the upright position so it thinks the bucket is full and it won't make more ice. This is a Gallery FRS24XGCD - an oldie but otherwise running excellently.

Kitchenaid KSRS25 Ice dispenser blades get stuck


Greetings,
In looking up this partial model # KSRS25, it shows you have
the model with the large ice bin inside the freezer.
My question to you is: Does the auger motor run when you
push the ice lever?
2 trouble prone parts on this model. Both in the case of NO
auger motor activation.
#1 broken pin that hold the micro-switch on to the switch bracket.
Item # 15

1690545?addlogo=false

Next #2 and the Worst, A Broken Blue wire or wires in the wire loom
under the freezer door hinge. Un-repairable new door needed if still
available.. You have to get creative restoring the power.
So before I continue, Does the Auger motor Run?
And if it does, remove the bin and close the door switch that turns the
light off, and tape switch shut. With door open and ice cradle pushed
in watch the auger drive fork turn? Is the the key hole stripped in the
fork.(rounded out) May need the fork or motor. #9 & #2

My ice maker does not work. How do I remove it to check it?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

There are at least 3 different ice makers in use. They are not all the same. What is your make and model number so we can cite applicable reference material to help you?

This is just a guess.... at matching a manual to your unit, but download this manual and follow the troubleshooting procedures:
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf

Note.. Trouble shooting is best performed while the ice maker is "Installed"
If the ice maker checks out ok then most likely the freezer may not be getting cool enough from either a automatic defrosting problem or... an evaporator fan motor that is not running at full speed.

Additionally... if the freezer door switch has failed the ice maker will not work at all even if you are following the steps in the manual link above. The door switch controls power to the ice maker and shuts off ice maker power when the freezer door is open. Most of the time you never realize the door switch has failed unless you manually test it with the door open. (i.e light on / off and ice maker power on / off as tested with a meter)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

GSH25KGRWW dispenses ice/water all by itself! Heard noise last night, and refrigerator was dispensing ice all over the floor!! Attempted to stop by tapping the lever, but this had no effect; pushed water...


as you explained that by opening the freezer door the problem stopped the problem is: that you have a pinched dispenser wire or, two in the area between the door and, the door opening
these wires are low voltage so they are not going to cause a fire
but, if they touch the cabinet due to a bare wire they will ground and, start running the dispenser.
the door cover needs to be removed and, the problem (usually at the door hinge must be found and, corrected i.e. wire taped, shielded etc.

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 Maker Dispenser Motor Won't Stop Running


There is a plastic part in the dispenser that holds the micro switch that operates the auger motor when you push the paddle. If you're handy with hand tools, you can order the part and replace it yourself. The part is on the outside of the door.

Ice Dispenser Problem - Runs for no reason


I think your problem is in the dispenser lever switch or the lever itself. Don't worry about the upper door switch, it's the dispenser switch that's sending power to the auger motor. I would give you a part number but the posted model number is for a bottom freezer model. Catriver..
