My Maytag refrigerator model # MSD2269KEA01 is not dispensing cube or crushed ice. When the lever is pressed, the light came on, the chute cap opened, but I don't hear the auger motor running to dispense the ice. The water dispenser works properly. I suspect that the electric panel (part number # AP4358734)is faulty. Is it a correct diagnostic ?
ANSWER Hello John. Usually on these models, it is the motor W10271509 that is bad and not the board. You can tape the door switch closed and access the bottom of the motor and test for power coming to the motor when the dispenser is pressed. If there is power there, and the motor does not run, you will replace the motor on the unit. Test across brown/white and red/white for the voltage. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
