Ice will not despence. The switch will allow water, but no power to the Auger Motor?
ANSWER Hi Tom. Look under the freezer top hinge cover at the wire connections. Unplug the connector and examine all pin connections to see if they are burnt or pushed out backwards out of the connector. If you have to bypass the connection, make sure that you use the correct or slightly larger wire size and have tight connections. Use a volt/ohm meter part #@ TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Find the wiring diagram in the controls or the lower grill kick plate. Pop out the freezer door switch and see if the connections there are tight and the switch operates well. The 120 vac will come there on the red wire.This will tell you the wires from the fountain control board part # 67004258 that sends the voltage to the auger motor part # 67003226. Does the auger motor work in both directions as needed ? Beside the auger motor itself do you see a black capacitor part # 65889-4 ? This may be the reason why the auger motor does not work. Be careful since all capacitors store electricity. Handle with gloves. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to momentarily discharge the capacitor terminals a few times to completely discharge it. If your ohm meter does not have a capacitor scale check it by putting the scale on R x 1 . The capacitor will read closed and slowly discharge down to open or infinity. The opposite way it will read open( infinity) too great of a area to measure. Thank You.
