Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

Open Question

Kenmore Elite ice maker no longer opens flap to dispense ice

A few weeks ago the in door ice maker light started flashing and it sounded like a relay was clicking on and off. This would go on for 20-30 minutes then stop and all would be well. We also noticed that the ice dispensing flap was open allowing cold air to escape. We eventually figured out the if you engaged the child lock it would stop. Now the flashing and clunking has stopped but the flap that allows ice to fall into your cup no longer opens when you push the dispens lever. Other wise everything works. You can reach up and open the flap with your fingers and the ice that has been brought forward by the auger will fall into your hans. Basically the flap doesn't work. Help!

Mod # 795.77562600

Are there any trouble shooting or service manuals available?

Thanks

SOURCE: ice maker failure

1) Check the filler tube which allows water to enter the dispenser through the back wall of the freezer. This tube may be frozen inside. You can pull the tube out gently and clear it.

2) The inlet valve may be faulty/blocked. Where the water connects to the water valves behind the fridge, try to swap the plugs around from the one valve to the other. They should be colour coded. Then try dispensing water. If water runs into the ice-maker then the ice maker valve is faulty/blocked.

One is the icemaker will leak on the auger motor and freeze it up as you describe. If this is the problem the ice will be very solid (hard ice). If this is the case check to see if the tube that feeds the icemaker water is clogged with ice and if so remove the ice and replace the water valve. If not the icemaker may be overflowing, which is still most likely due to a bad water valve.

The other thing that will cause this is an air leak. If it is an air leak the ice will be frosty more like snow than hard ice. But even so it will still cause the auger not to work. If this is the case check the little flap that opens and closes to let ice through the door to see if it is closing properly. Then check the door gasket to see if it is sealing properly.

Turning the temp. down shouldn't help nor hurt your problem.

The ice maker on my Kenmore refrigerator freezes up when it despenses ice. I've defrosted it several times, but within a few days the dispenser is frozen up again. I think the flap that dispenses the ice...


Maybe the "spring" system of the dispenser lever is faulty, try open it and closing with your hand and see if it will stay close on its own.
But yes you are right, it freezes because warmer air is entering though the dispenser

No ice through dispenser


When you operate the ice dispenser lever, you should be able to hear a little click from a micro-switch that then switches the auger motor and the light on and also opens the flap. If you cannot hear this small click, then the micro-switch is faulty. The ice dispenser only works when the freezer door is closed, so you could also inspect the door light/fan switch for proper operation.

Ice maker repair and still no ice


Amyc, of course you should call this cat back, but here are a few things to check. Make sure that the fill tube is not frozen over. The black tube feeding water to the IM. Next with the freezer door open your optics should flash twice with a pause repeatedly. Hold the left side emitter flap down and the light should be on steady. If this checks, the optics are good. The ice maker rakes should be at the 2:00 position when it's in it's home positon. Any other position could be a bad module. When the cat comes back to check it out, make sure he jumps the ice-maker to get the unit to fill before he leaves...Catriver..post back.
