What Repairman said is correct.
I have also seen a similar result from the cubes freezing together in the bin.
When you activate the auger the frozen cubes will make the bin "jump" and become dislodged. Next time you try you get crushed.
Just remember before you call for service...remove then re-insert the bin.
If that does not work please call a under paid overworked appliance tech.

Well, that makes sense.  Sometimes when it get warm & humid in the house, in our Whirlpool the cubes melt glaze and get caught in the turning mechanism that ejects them.  So I can see how that would jump the bin.  We will try that next time the Kenmore does it before we call one of those overworked techs.  Thanks again!
