Hi, I have a Kitchenaid kscs25ftwh01 refrigerator with an ice dispenser that is not working. I believe it has a whirlpool motor 2252130 that drives the augur. I removed the motor and tested it for continuity, it has no continuity across any pin combination except for pins 1 and 2, which reads .07 ohms on the 2K scale. The strange thing is, after checking for continuity, I re-connected the motor to check for voltage on the pins - and it worked again. I checked it for operation after every step for complete re-assembly, and it worked each time. After completing reinstallation, it worked once - and then stopped working again. Is this a motor on its last legs? Or a control board that is acting weird? Thanks for your help!

Hi, the ice dispenser stopped working so I took the motor out and checked continuity - everything is open except pin 1 to pin 2 which is .07 on the 2K Ohm scale. The weird thing is when I hooked it back up to test the voltage from the wiring harness, it started working again. I reassembled everything, and it dispensed ice for one cycle and then stopped working again. Is this a motor on its last legs or a circuit board acting weird?

When dispense swicth is depressed the auger starts and ice starts to fall but chute door does not open . Door has close pressure on it. If you run it too long it just jambs the chute.

Just a follow up to my last post. I read conflicting replies about how to test voltage going to the motor. With the motor disconnected I read the voltage on Red/White & Brown/White. One tech replied there should be 12 VDC and one tech replied there should be 120 VAC. The motor itself is stamped 120 VDC (120 VAC / 60 Hz Rectified) If my meter is on AC I read ~10 VAC. If I am set to DC I read ~6 VDC. So maybe my motor is ok and the board is bad? Thanks for your help.

Ice won't come out. The chute opens. The shaft to the motor don't move. Could this be an electrical or motor problem?

How do I test the auger drive motor to see if it is working? I have disconnected the plug, but don't know which holes in the plug to check for voltage. Since the ohm meter probes will not fit in the plug holes do I partially disconnect the plug & make contact on the motor terminals? To check for power besides depressing the ice dispenser lever is there anything else I need to do? also, is part AP3776020 the correct one for my fridge? thank you

My ice quit dispensing. The door still opens but the motor does not turn the auger. I removed the motor from behind the panel and want to know if there is a way to test the motor? Could it be the circuit board?

I have a Kitchaid refrigerator model KSRL25FRBL00 ... makes ice fine but will not dispense. I took the auger motor out and let it thaw out and then put it back in. The auger worked fine for a day or so and then froze up again. It must be allowing moisture to freeze in the motor. How can I repair? thanks

I want to replace the auger motor with your AP3181486 and I am having trouble pulling the drive shaft up and out so that the bad motor will drop down for removal. Can you please advise?
