Changingthe ice enclosure

I'm trying to change my ice enclosure (which broke where the yoke of the auger motor attaches to the enclosure) and I can't figure out how to take apart the yoke from the motor. The link below shows a picture of the assembly and the part numbers I am referring to are 8, 9 and 20. If you look here, #9 and #8 are separate items, but they are connected on my unit and I can't figure out how to take the yoke. Please help.

Hello, Msalloum:

I have the same Maytag refrigerator that you have and I faced the same problem with the ice enclosure. I have now replaced it. As to the problem of separating the yoke from the motor, you'll have to turn the yoke clockwise in order to liberate it. In my case, after holding the motor shaft with a pair of pliers, I had to tap the yoke with a hammer once or twice on a clockwise direction before the yoke became free.

In view that more than 2 months have elapsed since you posted the question, you probably have solved the problem long time ago. If you haven't, I hope you find this tip helpful.

When I press the activation lever to dispense ice I get a sound of something turning but the ice does not drop out and the arm in the ice ben does not turn


On most dispenser systems, there is a motor in the back of the bin that turns the auger to pull the ice up to the dispensing hole. You say you hear the motor. On the motor end is usually a fork type prong attached to it that slides into the back of the auger. It may have come loose and is not driving the auger. Possibly a bad retainer clip or a nut came loose.

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

Icemaker is making ice but the ice dispenser is not working


Check the ice storage container. The ice dispenser will not dispense ice until the first supply ice has dropped into the ice storage container.Remove excess ice from the back of the ice container. Make sure ice cubes are not jammed between the ice maker and the back of the ice container.

---------------------

The auger won't engage or turn to dispense ice.Remove the ice bucket and with a hair dryer warm up the inside where the fork is that turns the auger in the bucket and try it and if this does not help then you will have to replace the auger motor ,, chances are the motor is just froze up .--------

If there is nothing jammed then try this./Remove the ice bin out.And then clean the ice bin.

Rotate the auger with your hand.If its hard then there is problem with auger motor.If the auger is not rotating fine then its faulty auger motor or the auger motor is frozen,if you notice ice getting collected there.

---------------

Take a hair dryer and blow hot air on the auger motor for few minutes.Take care you dont blow hot air continuously.

But if that is not helping then disconnect auger motor connecting wire wait for 2 minutes clean the connector and reconnect the connector back and see.If that is not helping at all.Then,replace the auger motor.

Ice dispenser will only give crushed ice; will not dispense cube ice ;I have looked at the auger and chute and nothing wrong there; when I chose cube, it dispenses crushed in both the crushed and cube...


Your selector solenoid is not working. Next to the auger motor there is a selector. You will see a plastic peice in a hole to the left of the auger.....Try to move it up and down. If it won't move it is more than likely frozen in one spot. Try to defrost it. If that does not work then replace the solenoid.

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 works on Kenmore side-by-side but will not dispense


If there is ice in the bin and you hear the auger motor running when depressing switch then the auger is broke or the ice bin is busted , pull the bin out and empty it and de ice it to inspect for cracks. you can also turn the auger/fork in the freezer and it should turn the motor and have some resistance when turning. let me know if you have any other questions.

Refrigerator Maytag MSD2454GRQ - Ice Dispenser Yoke


I think this manual should be relevant to your fridge. Page 61 I think will give what you are looking for much better than I may be able to describe, let me know if it is still being a problem as I suspect the pressure that keeps the yoke on is what you are having problems with.
