The ice/water dispenser does not work. It has no power at all and nothing works. Literally happened over night, it was working fine to nothing at all. The ice machine is not making ice either. At first, I thought it was the door switch (the one at the top that turns the light on and off), which I removed and checked for continuity. It checked out ok. I also depressed the door switch in front of the ice dispenser and when depressed, the light stopped blinking twice, so I am assuming the optical sensor works. Any thing else I can try? Thanks

My kitchenaid superba ice maker isn't working. It will not produce ice. No water is going into the ice part and if I stick my finger in there it isn't even cold. What could be the problem?

I made a boo-boo. I let those fake ice cubes fall into my ice bin, where they lodged in the crusher blades and we kept pushing it and pushing it (wondering why it wasn't making ice) until I realized what was up and removed the offending cubes. Now, the ice dispenser won't work. When the lever is pressed, you can hear the motor working, but the auger won't turn in the ice bin to feed the cubes to the crusher. I don't see anything visibly wrong with the auger (or agitator, whatever it's called), and it turns when you move it by hand. Just doesn't move when lever is pressed. What could possibly fix this problem? I don't want to buy an expensive part just to discover it is not the source of the issue. Help!

I recently purchased a Ice Dispenser Motor for my refrigerator from your website believing it was the cause of the problem I am currently having with it. I installed the motor per the instructions on the video (great video), and it still dose not dispense ice. I have plenty of ice production and the water dispenser on the door works well. I just do not get any ice coming out of the door. I do not hear the motor even attempting to work. I understand I should have checked power distribution in the individual components, but I get light coming from the light bulb below the ice dispenser motor. I am not certain if I should attempt to replace the solenoid or if it is something else. Do these refrigerators have these issues commonly, and does it seem to be one particular part, or can it be any number of issues? Your answer is eagerly awaited. Thank you, Sergio.
