Bad ice auger motor

Things I learned...remove only the two far left screws and one far right screw from the ice auger motor mounting plate. Disconnect both wiring harness connectors. With the assembly removed from the freezer, you'll need to get the motor seperated from the drive mechanism (fork). This was the most difficult part of the repair. The reason is that the fork (which is reverse threaded) cannot be unthreaded independantly of the motor shaft (ie. they both turn together). Locking pliers on the shaft only stripped metal from the shaft and did not supply enough torque to remove the fork. The way I finally did it was to take the old motor partially apart, then lock the gear case (keeping the shaft from rotating) with the motor's own splined internal rotor shaft. Once I finally got the fork apart from the motor shaft, swapping out motors was simple. You'll need to put the old plastic glove on the new motor to keep it dry. Also, the replacement motor I got from partselect.com did not come with threaded mounting bolt holes. Therefore, I had to use slightly larger self tapping screws I got from the hardware store. I also used locking washers as the assembly is subject to vibration.

Ice dispenser was not dispensing ice

I unplugged the fridge before I did the repair. Took out the ice bin, then I took out the two screws located at each side of the plate that holds the dispenser motor using a nut driver. I then disconnected the whole assembly from the wiring harness in the freezer. Took out the two screws (one on top and one on the bottom) that holds the plastic back cover of the assembly,popped out the back cover. I used the hack saw to cut the shaft of the motor because the auger drive has a reverse thread and won't come off from the motor. I then took out the three screws that hold the motor to the plate and disconnected the wiring that's attached to it noting which wire go where. Put in the new motor, the auger drive, reconnected the wires, put the back cover on, reconnected the wiring harness to the freezer and attached the whole assembly in the freezer. Done!

Ice crusher and dispenser stopped working

The motor shaft stripped and the drive auger spun in place instead of driving the auger to rotate. I had to purchase an entire motor even though the motor itself worked fine. The shaft being stripped had to be hacked off to get the motor out of the assembly. New motor installed, new drive auger installed. Works fine.

Ice cube dispencer would not turn

Dispencer quit working a year ago, but still still dispenced water. I talked to a service technician about it. He told me the electric motor was froze up, so I orderd a new one. When it arrived I installed it in about 20 minnutes,tried the dispencer and still would not work but this time the water would not dispence eather and this time I noticed the fan quit running and the light went dim when I tried to dispence ice. So I read the customers diagnosis and repares every thing pointed to the main control board, orderd the part and water filter. When they arrived in three days I watched installing this part video and it took me 20 minnutes to install and every thing works fine.
