Ice maker chute door

When trying to dispense ice, the door for the ice chute doesn't open to release the ice. We can reach in and open it to release the ice, but would rather it work as intended. :-) Might also help if we could look at a technical (rather than user) manual for the parts and assembly. Thanks

THE ICE MAKER PRODUCES LOTS OF ICE HOWEVER WHEN I PUSH TO DISPENSE ,ICE COMES DOWN THE SHOOT BUT DOOR WILL NOT OPEN TO RELEASE.tHE WATER FEATURE WORKS FINE ON THE FRIDGE .i HAVE REPLACED THE DOOR SEAL BUT...

There is a small motor on the outside of the freezer that you can see if you look up inside the door opening for the water and ice. It may be a silver color and is not very big. On a Whirlpool it is between the ice chute and the water outlet. Also, sometimes the ice chute door freezes shut.

My ice maker makes ice but will not dispense it

When you push the lever to dispense ice, can you hear the motor running? If not, that motor might be dead and not turning the auger, which would be your problem.

If you can hear the motor and auger turning, the chute or the opening in the ice maker might be clogged up with ice. Clean the entrance to the ice maker and the chute in the freezer door and that should fix your problem.

You may have an issue with one or more of the following:

* icemaker
* dispenser actuator
* ice chute door assembly
* ice dispenser solenoid (if the solenoid is stuck in an open position, the ice chute door/flap would remain open allowing cold air to escape).

Contact an appliance service company.

Will not release ice and makes crushed ice, even when on cubed.

I believe in your case the ice maker part number WR30X10093 being electronic with the control board in the front is the problem. I think the control board behind the front cover of the ice maker may have corrosion and causing the ice maker to malfunction. You can try disconnecting the set of wires to the coil on the water control valve and see if the water stops or turn off the ice maker first and try disconnecting the coil wires later. It has to be the control board or the water control valve part number WR57X10032

In door ice maker not working

In some cases, living in an area with extreme humidity, the ice dispenser door can stick open ( a small flap in the chute that delivers ice into the glass). This can cause a problem. The grinder in the dispenser sounds like it is frozen. Try using a HEAT GUN (hair dryer) on a low setting to defrost the dispenser DO NOT TRY TO MELT THE PLASTIC! Or a quicker solution, Unplug the refrigerator and pour water thru the dispenser CAN BE A MESS try to catch in a bucket or pan. Remove the dispenser from the door clean and dry as necessary and reinstall.

Try using cube ice to see if this helps. The occasional cup of cubes will dislodge stuck ground ice in the dispenser.

ABOVE ALL BE CAREFULL THE GRINDER CAN CUT YOUR FINGERS OFF. ELECTRIC SHOCK IS A DANGER AS WELL.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over

Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.
