Margiee,

Record the manuafacturer Name and write down the model number of your Fridge. Also take a mental picture of the Ice maker system. Go to www.Metacrawler.com, it is a top notch Search engine. You will not get a lot garbage like you do on Yahoo and Google. You type in this Search and your Website should be in the top four hits. (manufacturer) website, where you fill in the manufacturer name, then the word Website. Click enter, and hopefully you will see the manufacturer website listed. Go to this site and find your way to appliances, and then Fridges. Look around for a button to hit for Support or Download manuals. You should eventually be successful at finding your diagram. Comment back if you need more help, Us Fixya experts like to help. I know you think it is a crock to pay Fixya, but I just spent a lot of time in your benefit trying to help you. I hope it is what you were looking for.

Ice maker does not dispense ice through the door


Hello. I had the same problem. I replaced the auger motor(around$95) 3 times and would only last about a little longer than a year. I bought the 4th one but this time, I wanted to diagnose the issue. So it turns out that the auger motor goes installed with the impeller upwards. What was happening was that if a piece of ice would stay in the dispenser chamber and melt, the water would go into the auger motor eventually causing the auger casing to get full of water and slow it down or short it out. I took the casing apart and noticed that there was a small space between the motor and the casing. I drilled 2 nice sized holes in the dimple of the new motor very gently as to not drill into the impeller motor and installed the auger. To this day, 3 years later, no more having to buy new auger motors. Hope this helps!

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.

To see how auger motor looks.Please click the link below:---

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

What is a replacement part number for the ice maker tray 197D2303?


Hello BeckJeff, I believe that your fridge has the built-in ice maker and water dispenser and as such, only accumulates ice cubes in the ice maker's integral ice bin or as they call it, the ice bucket.

According to the parts list for the PSS26MSR series of refridgerators, the ice bucket and auger are supplied as a complete subassembly.

The part number is WR17X11447 and you can get ordered through any GE appliance dealer or online from several sources of your choice. If you have difficulty getting the part, you can also order it directly from searspartsdirect.com.

The approximate retail price for this should be $165.00 or less, again, depending on where you order it from.

I would suggest you confirm that this is the correct replacement part for your specific fridge model, before you order the part, so you're certain you receive exactly what you are seeking. You can call the folks at sears, toll free, to confirm the part. They can be reached at 1-800-252-1698.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Ice maker will not dispense ice.


ON THE AUGER MOTOR IS A COUPLER THAT SLIDES INTO THE AUGER WHEN THE BIN IS INSTALLED. SOMETIMES, THE COUPLER WILL ROUND OUT THE FLAT SIDE OF THE CENTER HOLE. THIS WILL CAUSE THE MOTOR TO CONTINUE TO TURN, BUT THE COUPLER WILL REMAIN STILL DUE TO THE RESISTANCE OF THE BIN AUGER. ALSO, BE SURE THE ICE IN THE BIN HASN'T MELTED TOGETHER BINDING UP THE AUGER. IF NECESSARY, REMOVE THE ICE AND START OVER WITH FRESH ICE. YOU MAY NEED TO REPLCAE THE COUPLER OR AUGER MOTOR.
