Question about Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Flap to close ice dispenser has fallen down and there is frost building on the outside of the ice cube bin. How do I put it back in? Or how do I take the front part of the ice/water dispenser off to fix it?

You would need to install whats called an Ice Door Kit made for whirlpool refrigerators. I am making an assumption that yours is a Whirlpool made Kenmore, your model number starts with 106. This is not an easy repair, you have to modify the door to install the kit, you might want to call Sears to fix it. If you want to take a chance and fix it yourself I can get you the part number.

Icemaker dispenses crushed ice when you select cubed ice


GE has a problem with the flap on the door which lets the ice out , not closing due to a rusted solenoid behind the panel . If this flap does not close , frost will get inside the ice bin , not letting the bin flap open to let cubed use come thru, only crushed . You can defrost the ice bin front and replace the door flap solenoid easily . If this is the problem , repost about replaceing the flap solenoid for further instructions if needed .

Ice cube dispenser will only deliver crushed ice


Remove the ice bin, and in the back of the freezer you'll see a square opening with a white plastic piece inside. When you dispense cubed ice this piece lifts up, lifting the long metal rod that runs along the bottom of the ice bin. When that rod lifts it opens the ice flap at the front of bin, allowing cubes to be dispensed. If the flap is not open, the cubes will be ground against the cutters and you will get crushed ice.

Here's what you can do to make it so that you always get cubed ice. Take a wine cork and stand it on end. Using a good knife, I positioned the blade about 1/3 of the diameter from the edge and cut all the way through the length of the cork. Then remove the ice tray.

Now put your finger in the sqaure opening and lift up the white pastic piece. Slide the modified cork under the flap so that it is jammed into the raised position. (This is the position it should be in when you are asking for cubed ice.) Now slide the ice tray back in while using your left hand to push the plastic ice flap at the front of the tray to the left side (again, the position it should be in for delivering cubed ice). Peer under the tray while you're slowly sliding it back in so that you can see if the metal rod connected to that ice flap successfully slides into the square opening at the back. If it can't slide in above the cork-raised plastic piece, you may need to pull the cork back out and trim a little more off it.

This worked for me... I can't get crushed ice anymore, but I've only needed crushed ice once in the 16 months I've lived here so that's not an issue for me.

Frost inside the ice dispenser chute and the ice cube dispenser seems "stuck" on crush mode instead of dispensing full cubes.


The stuck on crush mode , is caused by ice frosted in front of the ice bin , blocking the ice bin flap from opening , when calling for cube ice . Removing the ice bin and cleaning or defrosting completely , will solve this problem , AFTER , resolving the frost in shoot problem .
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes any power , going to the door . If no plug there , remove the bottom kick plate , by removing the screw on each side in the front , and disconnect the receptical from the wires comming from the bottom of the freezer door .
Remove the dispensor control board , by prying , or pulling , from the bottom of the board . Disconnect the 3 plugs to the board . You should now see the white dispensor cover , being held on by 4 screws . Remove these screws , and slide the cover out .
In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger , with the door flap arc , inserted into the plunger . Usually rust inhibits the movement of the plunger , keeping the door flap from closing completely .
Remove the 3 screws holding the plunger and solenoid ( part number WR62X10055 ) and replace . Cleaning will not help , due to rust will return .

GE profile Artica side by side. I am getting a frost build up


Sounds like the dispensor flap is not closing completely , pulling outside air in . Using a flashlight on the outside of the flap , look inside to see if any light is visible . If so , then the ice flap plunger and solenoid will have to be replaced . Also , excessive crushed ice can also cause frosting .

Frigidaire In Door Ice Dispenser


betz589,

I had the same problem and just finished fixing it myself. 1st, slide out your ice bin about 3-4" and look underneath it. There will be a long brass rod running along the underside of the ice and goes into a little square hole below the ice maker. This rod runs the flap on the dispensor and keeps it closed for crushed ice and opens the flap for cubed ice. The is a plastic bar inside the little square hole that needs to be moved. Slide your finger onto the plastic bar inside the square hole and move it either up or down. Slide the ice bin back in and try cubed ice. If it doesn't work, move the plastic bar the other direction. This will fix your problem...........Good Luck! Dennis

Frost on icemaker door


Most likely the ice door is not closing properly.
Clean out the ice chute and look down it from the inside while you shine a flashlite up from the outside. If you see light around the door then it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism.
Post back and let me know what you find.
