The cradle actuator on my kenmore ice dispenser will not spring back , I do not know where the spring attaches ,


Look for your model number around the fresh food section door. It will look like this=> 321.1234567
Without your model number it will be hard to help explain or provide an example. Sea Breeze

My ice maker is making snow in the dispenser area---What can I do to resolve this?


Hi,
I would look at the dispenser door to be the issue not the ice maker. This door if not closed will allow warm air to enter the freezer and create frost.
You would look into the dispenser door and clear the ice out, use a flashlight, open and close the dispenser door, if you see light after this. replace the dispenser door and or bar, spring, or other related part to the dispenser.
Good Luck

Spring control rod in kenmore model 253.55693400, I think the spring is messed up not letting ice dispense from the door. The auger is turning every thing has power


See if you can run the ice dispenser while the door is open. The auger may be turning but not the "drive blade" that delivers the ice.

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.

ICE DOOR WILL NOT LET ICE FALL DOWN CHUTE,


the ice door has a solenoid that opens and closes the ice door. since you were able to replae the door i assume you can take it apart pull it back apart and the crank the door attaches too is connected on 1 side to an electrical soleiod test if the plunger moves up and down freely. also look for heat deformation around the plastic as well. if it turns out the solenoid is bad i would also recomend replacing the the fountain boards as well. I dont think you can put to much tension on the spring..

Whirlpool pin retainer is broken on ice dispenser


this is easy. there is a small area beside where the piece broke off. bend a small peice of metal coat hanger at a 90 degree angle, (this is so you can make your new hole on the correct line) heat the end with a lighter, burn a smallhole thru this area beside where the previous hole existed. now throw away the old pin that you were using and use a piece of coat hanger cut to the right length. on one end bend about one half inch to 90 degree angle, feed thru new hole and thru your spring and flap and thru to opposite side hole and lastly make small bend to keep wire from sliding out. ta da, fixed. problem solved for about two cents. i have successfully repaired many of these doors.
