The ice dispenser stops working even though ice is still being made. When I pushed the ice dispenser button on the door, I could hear a relay clicking but the dispensing motor did not turn. When I removed the ice bin, the side button (that needs to be pressed to remove the bin) does not seem to work. It did not seem to latch properly. Would this be a reason why the motor won't turn? Or what else is wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated. Hal.
The bin not locking into place would have no bearing on the motor not working. You will want to access the motor and check to see if you are getting 120 vac to the dispenser motor when the lever is depressed calling for ice. If there is 120 vac and the motor does not rotate then you would need to replace the motor.
