Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
Well the way to tell is to push the light switch in and then the paddle for ice and see if the auger motor turns, if it doesn't turn in you hear a clack that means you have them backwards in you energized the solenoid for the crushed/cubed , I'm trying to find a wiring diagram for this but haven't had any luck yet, but the like I said its not going to hurt it to try the paddle and then you will know.
I have a orange wire that has two connectors and looks like it's run together in a loop. Then I have two black wires, one has a white line on it,
Are you saying that one of the orange wires conects to the motor and the other to the solonid? then which of the black wires connects to the solenoid? it sounds like this is one circuit with Orange being the power and black being the groung. Is this correct?
Thanks. I did verify the solenoid works and the rods in place. This unit is in my rental property, so I can't check it until tomorrow. Thanks for your help.
I know the same motor does standard ice and crushed. How does it do both?
Bryan, final wiring positions; Orange and black with white strip on motor. Plain black and second orange on solenoid. When I push the cubed button, the solenoid activates. When I push the crushed button, it doesn't activate. So I assume that when the lever in the back of the ice tray is lifted, that's for cubed and visa versa.
I still seem to be getting crushed out of both modes. So if you have any suggestions on what might be causing this, please let me know. You've been a great help and I'll accept your answer now.
