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. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How do I verify which part I need if the ice dispenser is not dispensing ice? It makes a sound but does not dispense the ice. The water dispenser works fine. Do I need an auger moter or a ice door motor?
Answer Tami, If the ice chute door opens and closes when the actuatr paddle is pressed and released, it won't be the ice door motor, unless the paddle or linkage is broken, and then the ice cubes would accumulate in the ice chute and jam up the ice bucket and auger. You most likely have a frozen or faulty auger motor 2252130 . Here's how to access the dispenser motor " To remove the IDI motor:
a) Open the freezer door. b) Press in on the release button and remove the ice bin from the door shelf. c) Remove the two screws from the hex drive shaft coupling holder and remove the coupling assembly. d) Lift the spring and hex drive shaft up and out of the door. e) Remove the boot from the top of the IDI motor. f) Disconnect the motor connector from the IDI motor. g) Unclip the wires from the retainers under the IDI motor housing. h) Remove the three screws from the IDI motor housing and remove the motor and housing from the dispenser. i) Remove the four screws from the IDI motor and remove the motor from the housing." Thanks and Good Luck
