New Kenmore - ice motor burned out ??

\015 How does the ice motor of a 1 year old refrigerator burn out? Here's the story:\012 \012The ice machine was repeatedly getting a huge clump of ice in the bin and so I would turn the shut off arm up to "off" so that we could use up some of the ice and I could get to the middle and remove the big clump (otherwise no ice would feed). I would turn it off for maybe a couple days every few weeks or once a month. I went to lower the arm and it hasn't made ice since - no water comes to fill the tray (it's been about 4 months now). I don't know if this is relevant but there is some water frozen in a clump at the end of the spigot that feeds the water. My roommate just looked at the back and said that I burned out the motor from raising the arm "too many times." Is this true? Can that Happen? Also, (again may not be relevant) but the water pressure for the "water" button was always low. Please let me know how this happened.\015

Answers :

Taking a guess, ice maker fine. The wire bail is there to turn I'm on and off. Clear the ice from the fill tube with hair dryer.

I have a Kenmore Elite side by side refrigerator/freezer and just had the ice dispenser motor replaced a month ago when we first moved in our new house. However, our daughter left the freezer door ajar over night and the ice melted on to the motor. It worked temporarily dispensing ice but I believe the ice motor dispenser 'froze up' after we shut the door and everything froze back up. Can I simply thaw the freezer out with hopes of 'unfreezing' the new motor?


It would not hurt the motor as they are built to be exposed to some degree of moisture if the defrost does not work i would check and see if something is jamming the actual mech. up.

It is a Kenmore Coldspot (Whirlpool) side by side model # 106.57024601 a repairman replaced the ice maker circuit board which had shorted from washing the outside of freezer door with spray cleaner. After new board installed, the motor only rotates in one direction sending cubes of ice. The crushed ice opposite direction of motor rotation will not work. The repairman thinks that the motor needs to be replaced also or could it be the circuit board is bad ?

RE: Kenmore Refrigerator 10657282791, 12/1997. I was cleaning out refrigerator part of the appliance. I left the door open for awhile without turning it off. Then the whole thing would not work anymore. The lights go on inside, just no motor running. Did something burn out, or did it just get too hot? Can I fix it? I turned the motor off and am letting it set for a bit, with all the food out on the kitchen countertops. Also, a while back the ice maker quit working. Is there something I c

A couple of months after I purchased my Kenmore Elite Bottom freezer I got the error message Er 1F and the ice maker stopped working. Because I shipped it out of the country I was not able to have it repaired under warranty. Phone calls to the service centre led me to buy a new fan motor which I installed but still got the same message after a couple of hours. Any idea what I can do ? The water dispenser is working ok. Hope you can help Steve


Hi,\015\012Error code 1F indicates an abnormality of the BLDC fan motor for ice making, caused by a poor BLDC motor connection, DriveIC, and TR. This information can be found in the service manual on pg. 32 of the service manual: ... Kenmore Refrigerators

We have a compact Kenmore frig - it just shut down about a week ago and won't re-start - when I plug it in it just makes a clicking noise ( I am concerned I burned out the motor - but to ice build up)


Your last sentence makes no sense, however Hopefully the motor is not ruined. If still good, then the problem is most likely the start relay that plugs onto the motor. It may have a capacitor with it. The part is easily replaceable; the question is: ... Kenmore Refrigerators

I have a GS6NBE/GF6NFE that isn't making Ice. The arms are stuck forward and up at 45 angle, the light flashes 2 times and pause, repeats. I replaced the icemaker a year ago as one of the plastic pieces on the shaft that connected to the motor broke. I kept the old one for parts as the previous motor still worked so i swapped out the motor from the old to the new, still no ice. i swapped out the tray/cables from the old to the new but still no ice. what can i look at next that would be an i

Hello, I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 795.73264300 and I've been told by a service tech that I need a freezer fan motor replaced along with the ice maker. Total cost is about $400. I've been on line and found the correct fan motor for under $50 and don't care about replacing the ice maker at this point. The trouble is I'm not sure how to get to the motor. Can you provide instructions for removing the ice maker and plastic panels in the freezer compartment needed to replace the motor.

Ice Maker I have a Kenmore 106.9547610 with ice maker. The ice started tasting funny so I turned off the ice maker and put in a filter. Then is would run through its cycle but didn't fill with water. I have replaced the solenoid and put in a new ice maker and still no ice. THe new ice maker doesn't run through the normal cycle.


First, are you getting water at the door? If not, the filter is installed wrong or there is some packing on the filter you didn't remove. ... Kenmore 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice & Water with Water Filtration 4659267

Kenmore refrigerator 106.57716701. The ice maker on the door is making ice but when you push to dispense ice, the trap door opens, you hear a motor for a second or two but the motor inside does not dispense ice. Nothing is jammed in the ice bin. The refrig. is about 3 years old and my Homeshield appliance warranty does not cover icemakers. Sears says they will sell me a one year warrantty for $250. and will fix the problem.

The ice maker will not dispense any ice. When the dispenser lever on front panel is pushed the dispenser door opens but the auger motor does not operate. If I thaw the freezer the auger motor will operate for a short time i.e. the next day it no longer functions. I am also able to rotate the auger forks on the motor indicating the motor is not seized. Also no smell indicating motor burned up.


It sounds like your auger motor has an issue in my opinion. How i check them is: remove ice bin, open freezer door, hold door switch down, depress the freezer ice dispenser button on the door and see if the auger motor has the torque when it turns, ...

Hello, I have a side-by-side Samsung Refrig from Costco. I freezer started to ice up today. I removed the ice maker compartment and took some of hte freezer items out to provide more room for the air to circulate. I don't think the evaporator motor is working. I can't hear the noise it usually makes. Suggestions? How can I be sure it's the evaporator motor? Where can I get a new one if this one is no good? Where do I get a diagram on how to replace the evaporator motor? Thanks, Jorge Luis

Seems like there is no power to the auger motor. The solenoid does not move when I switch from cubes to crushed ice. I applied power to the motor directly, and the motor turns.The lite in the freezer also works. Could it be that the dispenser switch assy. is faulty?

Have Kenmore Elite bottom freezer 596 73509200 and it has started defrosting every so often (like once every 8 hours.
