Will not dispense ice as motor is not turning. Does that mean motor is bad? How can I check?
Answer Hello Dex. Tape the door switch closed and access the motor. Test for 120 volts to the motor when the dispenser is pressed. If the power is there, replace the motor. 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
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?
Answer Hello Patty. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

How to remove front ice dispenser panel?
Answer Hello Mike. The front panel unsnaps from the freezer door.
Drive coupler is stripped on shaft, how do you remove? Is this a
The only way to remove the stripped coupler is to pull the auger housing and wedge something under the coupling and tap it so that it grabs the threading and is able to be removed. You do not necessarily have to remove the old coupling. You can put the new coupling over top of it and it will still work normally. This is the easiest way to correct the issue without removing the old coupling.
Change my dispenser motor this morning but work when the door is open. When I close it nothing. What could happen?
Answer Hello Cupid. Based on the information you provided, if the motor runs with the door open, but not with it closed, then there is a wiring issue with the unit. You need to look for loose or broken wires on the unit. Check at the door hinges, where the wires come in, and the light switch inside the freezer.
