The icemaker stopped dispensing ice. I took the motor out. Is the motor supposed to turn with auger freely when not hooked up? I can turn it using pliers with the auger. Thank you
Answer Hello Lydia,
This is commonly caused by the dispenser control bracket pins being broken. I would refer you to a replacement part but cannot since there is no model number listed from the appliances' I.D. tag. It would be similar to 2180226.
Need instructions on how to install auger motor mine turns real slow. Seems to be dragging.
To remove the auger motor you will pull out the bin and remove 3 screw holding the auger housing in place. Once screws are removed then you will pull out the auger housing and disconnect the harness that plugs into the wall. You will need to take the coupler off which is threaded so if you grab the shaft with channel locks and tap it to loosen it to take it off. Take out the screws holding in the motor and replace.
