Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I can help you with this. sound like you have stuck auger motor. Do you have the model numbers so we can test.
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX up the drawing right now, so I know which one we are looking at.
If you remove the ice bucket you should see two metal arms sticking out. See that?
Can you rotate those arms with your hand?
yes i can
If you have some tape you can tape down the door light switch and the switch that is pressed when the ice bucket is in place. then you can attempt to dispense ice with the door open and bucket out so you can see if those arms move. they are what is supposed to turn to eject the ice. You can also inspect the inside of the buck and make sure it's not broken. Let me know what you find.
i taped it up and the motor does not turn
Did the lights still dim?
yes the light still dims
You are going to need that motor back there. Called the auger motor. Are you handy enough that your going to repair it yourself?
yes i can change it myself
Ill look up the Part number right now.
but now the water doesnt work will the motor casuswe that too
HERE for the motor.
no, shouldn't affect it. if you put the bucket back in and close door does water come out?
let me but bucket back
bucket back in and water still wont work
light just dims
i am think short somewhere but where
If you were short you would have blown a fuse or board. Light dim means a motor or component that is pulling to much of a load. That tells me motor gets voltage.
this has been part of prom all along i know if i play with the switch enough the water will start to work but has hesitation
Did you replace the switch with the dispenser?
i replace front panel switch
Still sounds like you need the motor.
could be i will try it so that means the power for all goes through it
thanks s goodbye
Glad to help. Have a great day.
