Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

The ice dispenser motor is working and turning, but the ice won't come out. It appears that the mechanism in the ice bucket is not turning or moving ice out.


Answers :

Check the drive on the auger motor......the peice that turns when you push the ice lever. Open the freezer door, pull out the ice bucket so you can see the drive, tape the door button or have someone hold it so the fridge thinks the door is closed, then hold the auger motor drive while you push the ice lever on the door. Those have a problem where they get stripped out and they will turn with the ice bucket removed but if you put any kind of a load on it the drive will slip and just turn on the motor shaft.

Kenmore through the door dispenser. Ice maker and water work. Problem is the when the auger turns the bucket moves up and down so the auger stops turning yet the motor turns. It has to do with the latching system at the bottom of the bucket. I tried another bucket from a friends frig. with no success. Can it be the motor and gear?

Model FRS26R4AB5 Frigidaire ice maker. Unit makes ice but will not dispense. When engaging in-door dispenser switch, I can hear the motor come on, but the auger does not move. This occurs even with the ice bucket empty, so I know it is not the ice cubes holding it. Suggestions? Thanks, Jeff

Just moved into a new how with a Viking DDSB423D. The icemaker was turned off. When I turned the ice maker back on, I started getting a slow leak under the front of the freezer side. When I turn ice maker off the leak stops. I am guessing that the filter has not been replaced for some time. Would this havwe anything to do with the leak? Is there anything else I can do, or do I need to have a technition come out to work on it?
