For Whirlpool Motor, Ice Dispenser (Part Number: AP2992761)

I admit I am an idiot. The earlier test I thought were checking voltage were incorrect. I am not getting 120 vac to the pins leading to the motor, and supplying 120 to the motor terminals will activate it. I know the next step may be a call to a qualified repairman, but dang it seems to be so simple. Something's open somewhere and I would like to think I have the skills to find out where. Any suggestions? You folks are really helpful, know anybody who wants to buy a new (never used) replacement motor? Thanks in advance.

ANSWER Hello donnyrockaholic. Inside the dispenser assembly there is a micro-switch 2162361 that sends the power when you press the lever. You will need to test and see if this micro-switch is bad and needs to be replaced in the unit. 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
