Question about Kenmore 52572 / 52574
When we dispense ice from the ice maker in the door, the trap door remains slightly open causing the inside chute to frost up preventing cubes to be dispensed. This apparently is caused by the warm humid air leaking into the freezer through the trap door. How do I remove the ice maker door assembly to repair the problem?
The presence of frost indicates that the dispenser(ice) probrably isn't closing all the way once you get ice. This allows warm air to rise up, condense and form frost. In all likelihood the solenoid that controls the opening and closing is bad and needs to be replaced.

ngfam1 At your service!
There are many parts in this component that may be the culprit .
One or more will need to be replaced.
This is not easy to diagnose. I've seen service order parts 2 or 3 times till they completed the ice maker repair on a side by side fridge!
Usually it is outside air leaking ever so slightly through the ice door hatch!
Even for the experienced teach some times he may have to try a couple of part replacements, because it is not always visible with the eye!
If I were there hands on it would be fixed and better now!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
They only charge $75. around here, too!
Which is a very good service charge as things go around the country!
If none of these tasks remedy the ice problem then here is:
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
You will be fine

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.
