Default ice dispenser is blocked by frost
Model Number: 106.582   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Ice maker has recently and repeatedly frozen up. I clean and defrost the ice making unit, but within a couple days, it grinds, but can't put out cubes again. Cubes are clean in storage, but ejector opening and shute are heavily frosted. Shute flap closes correctly. Freezer and frig are fine. Water is fine. Hoping there is a simple answer

This is actually model # 106-58285891 if that makes a difference. I hope someone can help me.

Pwin,

I think, if you look a lot closer, maybe use a flashlight as a light source, you'll find that the flapper is not sealing to the dispenser housing, or you have an air leak around the dispenser housing.

We will need a complete model number (10 digits) to assist you further.

Thanks,
