I have a Sears Kenmore side-by-side fridge Model 106.53562202. I live in Greenwich, CT, and we lost power during this past week's Hurricane Ilene. When the power came back on the fridge side worked, the cold-water dispenser
works, and the ice maker
works, but the ice dispenser does not work.
When I press the dispenser lever the little door that opens to dispense the ice opens, but the auger in the ice bin does not move.
I have tried the following:
1. Made sure the dispenser button is in the "Unlock" position.
2. Emptied the ice bin, removed all the frost, made sure the auger-shaft interface was clear of any frost, and the the auger tuned freely by hand.
3. Turned off the fridge, waited 5-10 minutes and turned it back on.
Please advise me what I need to do to get the ice dispenser to work again.
