Why does my ice auger want to keep spinning and wont stop when you pull the cord it turns the auger


Pulling the cord will only start the engine. Your problem is with the centrifugal clutch. Check the clutch for broken springs. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

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...

try pulling out the ice bucket, remove all ice and look for signs of damage on the auger mechanism... most of the time the ice tends to clump up and that prevents the auger from moving freely.

Ice dispencer not dispensing ice


Ouch, if your auger won't turn, pull out the ice tray unit. At the back you will see the gear for the auger unit. Try and move it, both clockwise and counterclockwise. If it won't turn - you have a motor problem and needs replacement. If it turns too freely, then you have a weak motor and it will not push the ice.

Ge side by side refrigerator model tfx20jrx ice wont dispense


If the auger will move freely with ice out of the pan then the auger motor may be defective. Sometimes the connection in the door switch is defective. When the door is closed the switch turns the circuit on to the auger and control panel. Because the auger uses more amps that the water dispenser the door switch may be the problem or auger motor is just worn out.
