106.626640 Icemaker in Admiral Refridgerator humming.

Recently we managed to screw up the "bin full" switch on our icemaker. I had been manually turning it on and off for the last week.

Tonight, my wife was taking a bag of chicken out of the freezer and the icemachine started to stutter like a machine gun. I unplugged the fridge and plugged it back in.

Now the unit is humming and not rotating to the refill point. I think it is stuck around the Thermostat label.

Is there a way to cycle it through manually (even though it says not to)

Any ideas? thanks. unit looks like one in attachment.

Are you sure it is an Admiral fridge? That icemaker looks like from a Kenmore.

** Is there a way to cycle it through manually **

AFAIK, only by powering its motor although if it is humming, I would think its motor IS already being powered. :/

It sounds like the icemaker's 'module' may be shot.

On that icemaker design there aren't any repair parts available besides the whole module (see the following link). When needed, it is either replace it or replace the whole icemaker which is often more cost/time effective. :(

Admiral Designer series

hmg208240a

has Montgomery Ward on inside label.

It has hummed all night, and now I can't tell if the compressor had come on anytime in the past night. The fans are running, but the fridge is getting warmer, closer to 45.

is the Defrost Cycle stuck on (humming)? This all seemed to happen at the same time as the Ice machine issue. Crap, this is going to make me late for work.

Turns out the problem was that some ice had fallen down into the Freezer fan and chewed up the blades. When I unplugged it, everything settled so it wouldn't move when I plugged it back in. I can post a picture tomorrow.

Now I am looking for a replacement fan or blade

** Admiral Designer series hmg208240a **

Those fridges usually use a 'twist tray' icemaker. Someone must have replace it at some time?

** Now I am looking for a replacement fan or blade **

Which, the evaporator (freezer) fan blade or condenser?

Are there any numbers stamped on the old fan (not the motor)?

I picked up a replacement Fan motor and blades at Bell appliance yesterday after the Mini-marathon.

The part numbers were in an earlier message from the fan motor. I suppose paying $50 not rather than ordering the parts online for $35 or so and waiting is probably my best bet.

Attached is a pic of the mangled fan blades. I replaced the entire unit because it think it has run with a broken blade or two for a while. I had found a piece of blade looking plastic previously. I don't want a bearing failure or something a week after putting this back together.

Thanks for all the support.

Glad to hear it.

Yes, I could have directed you to a replacement motor but not the fan *blade* with those numbers. I thought it was more the fan blade you needed since you said it was "chewed up".

BTW. 29415-13 is a valid part number for a motor but I couldn't trace it immediately. 854482-10 is incorrect, maybe it was printed as B54482-10? But its actual part number is only 54482-10 which can be seen at the following link:
