I have a model MSD2554AR model Maytag fridge that doesn't dispense ice. I applied power to the motor and it runs fine. I thought the ice dispenser printed circuit board was bad so ordered one. The motor still won't run to dispense ice.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please allow time for me to respond, sometimes I get the questions or responses late so please be patient as I have no control over the site issues. NOTE, I have nothing to do with your payment to the site and did not receive that money. You have to supply a rating in order for us techs to receive credit for our time as we have nothing to do with any payment made to the site.

Have you checked the dispenser switch? That is the most common failure on this unit.
