Ice Maker Will Not ??

5 posts in this topic

I have a side by side Frigidaire. Its about a year and a half old. All of a sudden my ice maker wont auger the ice out of the dispenser.I pulled out the ice box and dumped all the ice out and the auger turns fine there.I place it back in place and when I push the glass to the ice arm, the thing just makes a humming sound. Any Ideas whats UP!!!

Make sure the ice box is going in far enough. There's a gold metal "lever" that fits in a hole, too. That lever gets switches directions for crushed or solid ice. Any way, open freezer door. Pull the ice box out. Hold door light switch closed and push the ice arm in to see if the auger turns in the freezer.

If motor makes noise like it's trying to turn but doesn't, that motor is bad

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
