Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Model #253.54739304. My ice maker works fine but doesn't dispense ice. The motor runs but there is a flat metal bar on the auger that fits into a plastic cylinder that turns with the auger. The flat metal bar no longer is stationary but floating on the auger so the cylinder does not turn. Is there a pin or clip that holds this in place?

SOURCE: Ice maker not getting water

Hi, The first thing to check is the inlet tube going through the back wall. Make sure it isn't plugged with ice. If the inlet is open, you can remove the front cover on the ice maker and locate the to holes marked M an N. Use an insulated wire and strip off about 1" on the ends. Insert the wire ends into these hole and see if the white gear on the ice maker head starts to turn. Let it advance through the cycle and see if you can hear the inlet valve hum when calling fpr water. If water enters the icemaker, you will need to replace the head modual board or the whole ice maker. There is not much difference in cast.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a side by side Whirlpool refrigerator that will not dispense ice. Ice maker working fine, just will not dispense. We did check the micro switch and it is working. No sound coming from ice maker...


when u trip sw to dispense motor must run - so does proper voltage appear at motor connector tabs? If not, follow it back to the voltage source. If so, does motor turn when not connected to mechanism? If not, the motor is defective. If so, is the mechanism from the motor to the auger free to turn. IE can u turn the auger from the motor connection?

Makes ice fine but ice doesn't come out of dispenser or make noise trying to intermittently.


Hello there,
When there is a problem with the motor that opens and closes the dispenser is when you will be experiencing such problem as having the ice maker making ice but not dispensing them
Most likely frozen up auger motor. Try removing the auger motor and thawing it to see if it will then run.Your auger motor may be frozen, use a hair dryer on it and see if it starts turning again.
The best, if not easiest way to access the auger motor is pull it out. It's just four screws, two on each side of the fork assembly. The white plate and auger motor will come out together. There is a quick disconnect for the wires.there are boot kits to install over the motors to prevent this or just put it into a plastic zip lock bag with the shaft poking thru a hole in the front.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor


If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.

Ice dispenser auger does not work.


Hi, On GE refrigerators the motor is not quiet. Open your freezer, remove the ice bin, press the door switch, make sure it turns off the light, and then press the ice dispenser lever. The solenoid will click, which also opens the ice door and the auger motor will turn on and you can definitely hear it. If the motor runs then inspect the auger connection on the rear of the ice bin, its plastic and they break. On some models, like my GE Adora there is a switch just for the ice maker behind the ice bin. If you need more help let me know as with all long distance troubleshooting we try with the information we have. Thanks and Good Luck!

Ice Maker


PLEASE CLARIFY THE TERMS "MOTOR", "ICE MAKER SWITCH" AND "ICE TO COME OUT"

FAN MOTOR? COMPRESSOR? AUGER MOTOR?
ICE MAKER ON/OFF SWITCH? DISPENSE SWITCH? DOOR LIGHT SWITCH?
ICE TO COME OUT OF THE ICE MAKER? ICE TO COME OUT OF THE DISPENSER? ICE TO COME OUT OF BIN?

Ice dispenser not working


Scorpio, remove the ice bin itself, dump the ice and see if you can move the bin auger by hand by turning the actuator in the rear. If the bin is ok, with the door open and the door switch held in see if the auger motor is turning when pressing the ice lever. If it's not turning the next logical step is to see whether the auger motor is getting voltage when calling for ice. Make sure the door switch is closed. The part number for the auger motor on the posted model is wr60x0202. Hope this gets you going..Catriver.
