Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Kenmore Model 106.57789704 side-by-side - ice won't release into door bin. there is frozen ice in the ice maker. little red light is blinking by the on/off switch inside freezer when door is open. we had power failure a few days ago (in case that matters), but I don't see a Power Outage Reset button on our model.Thank you!
This probably is not what you wanted to hear but... I recommend you to the human manual defrost method to free things up as a result of the ice that built up post power failure. That somewhat messy method being:
1. Unplug the unit.
2. Remove Freezer contents (You do not need to empty fresh food contents)
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for around 2 hours. (Messy part so be ready to tend to the drips with rags & mop)
AFTER 2 HOURS
4. Take a rag or sponge and remove most of the water out of the ice maker as best as you can after the manual defrost.
5. Completely empty the ice bin of all ice or water paying particular attention to the auger making sure there is no ice at all in the auger.
6. Plug in the unit.
7. Reload Freezer contents.
This should get things back to normal. If not there is much more that can be attempted. At this time I really believe that the above procedures will normalize your unit. If and when you need more assistance just respond here I and I will gladly assist you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
