Question about Frigidaire FRS26ZSG

1 Answer

The dispenser auger turns but is not dispensing any ice. The auger turns freely and sends ice toward the front of the bin but nothing comes out. What can be done to fix it? Does the blade toward the front of the auger need replaced? It seems to rotate easily on the auger and I'm wondering if that is the problem. If so, where can they be ordered and how does one find the part #?

Hi,
You have a cube of ice jammed between the rings of the auger...this stops anymore ice from moving out of the auger...
remove ALL of the ice from the tray and the auger and then let it refill... then it will work again...

Howtofixicemaker


First, is the auger drive operating when you press the dispenser lever? Is the ice frozen into a clump in the bin and isn't breaking loose into smaller pieces capable of dispensing? Is there frost around the ice dispensing chute (just above your glass) or inside the ice bin (near the very front) indicating an air leak? Is the bin installed properly so the bin auger drive is connecting to the bin auger?

Knowing these answers will point you in the right direction to solve the problem.

The ice maker will not dispense any ice. When the dispenser lever on front panel is pushed the dispenser door opens but the auger motor does not operate. If I thaw the freezer the auger motor will...


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!

I have a GE Profile Artica. Dispenser is not dispensing ice even though ice bin is full. When i press the for ice to dispense , the light dims and the compressor stops.


Try taking out the ice bin press the door light switch and dispense ice button at the same time and see if the motor bracket turns without the ice bin in place. It is possible you have ice in the bottom of the bin that is frozen and jamming the movement of the auger. If not the problem may be a defective auger motor=> WR60X10259 Auger-Motor

Whirlpool side by side GD27DQXFW01; ice cubes are not dispensing


We will need to check the voltage at the auger motor while depressing the dispense switch. If all the other features work on the dispenser panel while I would consider checking the voltage going to the motor. Some auger motors are in areas where water causes the voltage to be shorted by constant moisture. We will need to remove the panel and simulate what you have done on the outside but this time we need to see if the voltage has been altered or if the auger motor itself is defective. Sea Breeze

Matag fridge msd2351hew icemaker ice and water work and cubes come of crushed ice dispencer. There is a capacitor connected to auger motor.Is this the problem? There are no other electrical parts.


If you remove the bin and look on the bottom of it you will see a rod running from front to back,this opens and closes the crusher see if it moves freely, if not dump the ice and rinse the bin out with hot water till it moves freely,if so,with the door open set the dispenser to cubes leave the bin out push the light switch in and hit the  dispenser button you should hear a loud pop and see the actuator by the auger motor move up,and drop down when you release it.

FRIGIDAIRE SIDE BY SIDE ICE DISPENSER


Have same or similar problem. MY problem turns out to be that the Auger turns fine, but there is a little metal blade that attaches to the end of the auger and transfers the spin action into this auger "hopper" (for lack of a better term) which actually accepts the ice that has been moved from the back of the ice bucket by the metal auger and then dispenses the ice into the hopper which falls into the glass. the issue is one of crappy design. It turns out that this little blade has a rectangular opening in the middle that the rectangular end of the auger fits into. If this rectangle opening gets stripped (as mine has done, and ALL are likely to do) then the auger spins, the ice is moved forward but none are picked up by the hopper, and none (or very few) fall into the glass.
Everyone should check to see if this is the case. If so you may need to order a new blade, or a new auger, or a new refrigerator.

Good Luck!

Ice dispenser not working


Scorpio, remove the ice bin itself, dump the ice and see if you can move the bin auger by hand by turning the actuator in the rear. If the bin is ok, with the door open and the door switch held in see if the auger motor is turning when pressing the ice lever. If it's not turning the next logical step is to see whether the auger motor is getting voltage when calling for ice. Make sure the door switch is closed. The part number for the auger motor on the posted model is wr60x0202. Hope this gets you going..Catriver.
