Ice maker door opens and will dispense ice but the door will not close automatically. This causes the chute to freeze solid. I am able to close the door by pushing on it but it will not close on its own. Do I need a new motor or a new circuit board or some other part?
Answer Bud, As of late, the Ice Door Motor W10184813 has been the culprit, for similar complaints like yours. You can test the motor to verify it has failed: 1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power. 2. Disconnect the motor connector at P5 on the core board. 3. Set the ohmmeter to the R x 1 scale. 4. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to the following motor connector pins: Pin 1 to pin 2,3,5,or 6 = 45 to 55 O. If the readings are not in range replace the ice door motor.
How to replace AP4410923 motor.
To remove the motor for the ice door, you will want to remove the dispenser tray. Behind the tray there are 2 screws that you will need to remove to take out the dispenser assembly. Once you have the dispenser cover off you will be able to access the door assembly to be able to remove the motor. The door is held on by 2 screws 1/4" hex head.

I ordered this part today....ice is not dispencing from the door. I push the button located in the door and don't hear the motor any more. How do I replace this? I don't see a video on you web site, thanks,
To access the dispenser door motor for this unit you will need to remove the drip tray. Behind the drip tray there are 2 screws that you will remove and then you will be able to lift the dispenser assembly out. You will then be able to access the motor. If the dispenser door is opening then the motor that was ordered will not resolve the issue. The dispenser motor 2252130 that turns the ice bucket or the control board 2252174 would be the issue if the motor is not turning the auger to dispense ice.
Understand the answer about testig the power to the motor. What wires am I looking to attach my mutitmeter to on the motor and am I testing for 120 AC or DC? Thanks!
Answer Hello Eric. The wiring diagram does not tell which wires. It would be beat to test each wire on the motor to a good ground. If you see voltage, then the motor W10184813 is bad. If there is no voltage on any wire, bad control board. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
