My Kenmore cold spot won’t dispense ice through the door. But arm engages the flap to open and close but doesn’t turn on the auger. Ice maker still produces ice .

Hi,

Here's the parts diagram:

#15 is the bracket support, that may be the issue, read below:

I'd first check the dispenser bracket that holds the ice dispenser switch in place, to make sure the little plastic pins are not broken.

The most common issue when this happens on your model is the bracket support plastic switch pins break, thus no water or no ice.

You would need to remove your front dispenser frame #23 in that diagram.

Then look at your support bracket #15 to see if the little plastic pins are broken that hold your ice and water dispenser switches #14 in place.

Here's the dispenser bracket for your model you can order(Video Included in part link):

Let us know what you find.
