ICE CONVEYOR SEEMS TO BE RUNNING IN REVERSE. ICE MOVES TO THE BACK OF THE BIN INSTEAD OF OUT THE CHUTE. I TOOK THE UNIT APART TO UNFREEZE IT AND NOW IT WON'T FEED ICE!!!?!

model # FRS23R4AW8
i removed the ice bin & auger assembly to see if any parts moved wether i selected ice cubes or crushed ice - there was not any difference (viewed with the door open and the "door shut" switch depressed, the auger turner rotated but the plastic selector that accuates the metal rod remained in the same location regardless of crushed or cubed ice selected.
i checked the "metal rod" under the ice bin and it functions (moves) freely. however the "selector" that is supposed to push down on the rod doesn't appear to move up & down like it should. is this a part i can replace (located in the rear of the freezer)or a switch problem in the door?
please help me i would be a HERO if i can fix this!
thanks a lot!

The tricky part is disconnecting the harness plug which can't be seen. Then allow the whole assembly to defrost and dry the solenoid and drive motor with a hair dryer. Reassemble without the bin, hold the door open and the door switch closed and try to get some cubes. The solenoid should pick up the stirrup and the drive motor will spin. If not, what is so wrong with crushed ice, anyway?
