Refrigerator Ice dispenser not working
I have a side by side GE refrig about 6 years old. The ice maker makes ice however the motor will not turn the auger. I have check and the cylanoid is working ok. I took the dispenser motor out and applied electrical current to it and it works fine also. Since the auger motor and cylanoid seem to be ok, what is my next try?Answer
Sometimes the auger motor will freeze up. When you took out the auger to connect it to voltage it may have unthawed. Put it back in and try it out and if it works just assume it was frozen.
If not check to make sure the door switch is working i.e the light turns on and off. If it is six years old and the door switch isn’t work the fresh food section will not be getting cold but check it anyway.
If don’t find anything give me the model so I can tell you what to check next.
