Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Auger runs constantly

Hi,
I replaced the Actuator for the water dispenser as had snapped.  Now the auger for the ice runs constantly.  None of the faceplate switches are responding.
I have checked the micro switches and ensured that the ribbon cable is securely seated.  Could I have blown a relay somehow?

    Great news.  Which circuit board was it?  The one that has the relays on it or the one with the control buttons?

    You are correct, I did not shut off the power.

    Great news!!  I did not shut off the power.
    Which board?  The one with the relays or the one with the control panel buttons?  Do you have a part number by chance?

Samsung rs22dcms not dispensing ice (ice is made)


My guess is that the doo switch is faulty or stuck open so the relay never closes to power the auger. I would check the door switch first then the auger motor.

ICE MAKER DONT DISPENSE ICE IT MAKES IT IT DISPENSES WATER WHATS WRONG THANKS Model: KSSC48QMS01


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Here is a manual that will assist you in troubleshooting:
KSSC48Q
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/507220676c24d02d85256b5800675172/$FILE/4317326A.pdf

I suspect you either have a problem with the switch for the ice in door actuator or the auger motor.
Access to the switch is on page 49 and 50 of the manual.
Ice maker auger motor access is on page 42 and 43 of the manual.

Crush/cube solenoid testing AND the auger motor testing are on page 60.

The schematic is on page 68 of the manual. The basic circuit is power from the disperser lock switch to the Ice lever switch to the motor. If the auger motor has the proper resistance then the Ice Lever Switch is the most probable failure. Listen for a CLICK as you depress and let go of the Ice Lever switch. No click = bad ice lever switch.

The micro-switches in the dispenser panel should be the same part number. The parts break down does a lousy job of identifying the exact switch. However, it should be the same part number as item 16 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5132417&diagram_id=28245505#d28245505

This manual may also be of help:
http://applianceassistant.com/pdf/inDoorIceSystem.pdf I think there are some differences from the manual above so it may or may not be helpful. Take a look. For some reason I am thinking about the switch pack but do not see it on the parts list.

Let me know if you need more assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

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.

GE Side by Side only dispenses crushed ice


remove the ice cube tray assy, remove all the ice, save the cubes, wash the assy with warm water dry the assy, be sure the lever in the rear of this ice cube assy is moving and spring loaded, move the lever and it should snap back and return if so you know the unit is ok(the cube assy), now with the assy still out of the freezer close the freezer door and select crushed ice and push the pad where the glass normally hit to activate the ice cubes,if the operates and you here a thump and snap and hum most likely your ok,if not you could have a defective auger motor assy,but if you here all the sounds as decribed oped the freezer door and select cubed ice push actuator on despensor door with the freezer door closed, reopen and install the ice cube assy tray bucket assy,push it in firmley, and try it with some ice in the bucket you should be fine,if not replace auger motor assy..

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

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.
