Freezer door ice dispenser freezes up
I have a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator with an ice dispenser in the freezer door.
The problem is the dispenser mechanism freezes up and won't drip ice - cubes or crushed. The ice maker is making ice and dispensing fine.
It is not the ice dispenser flapper door - that is closing completely.
When I remove the ice tray from the freezer door (not an easy task due to freezing) there is "powdered" ice around the mechanism surrounding the motor connection, in the chute and in the bottom of the dispenser where the "blades" are.
It seems this powdered ice freezes within the system, causing the problem.
Any ideas on where to go with this? We don't used the "crushed" setting - this happens when trying to get just cubes.
