I have a kitchen aid ref the elect went out the ice melted, now will not dispense ice. motor# W10271506 Is there a reset button someplace or do i need a new motor?
Answer Jeff, No there is no reset button or circuit to the ice dispenser motor. You'll need to access the motor and control panel to see which component has failed due to the voltage issue, and melted ice cubes.
For my model number ED5FHAXVQ00 how do I take the original motor out and then re install the new motor?
Answer Hello Roger. Open the freezer door and look under the bottom of the dispenser cavity. You will see an access panel. Remove the screw and access door and replace the motor W10271506 in the unit.
My ice maker is making ice but doesn't dispense it.you hit the switch and you don't hear anything. I removed the ice from the tray and the shaft doesn't move. What could be the problem the motor or the switch to the motor?
Answer Hello Rich,
The shaft of the ice dispenser will not move unless the motor is activated. You will want to pull the front cover off the dispenser to check the switch to make sure that the pins holding the switch in place are not broken. To access this you will remove drip tray, and using a flat blade screwdriver, place under the bottom of the trim and pop out. Once off check the bracket where switches are to make sure that it is not damaged and make sure that when you hit the dispenser that the lever makes good contact with switch. If not replace bracket W10206221. If this checks ok then your dispenser motor W10271506 is most likely the problem.
