GE Icemaker Motor

3 posts in this topic

My GE Icemaker still makes good ice, but the motor that turns the spiral dispense system appears to not be working. The switch still activates a system that should start the motor, but nothing turns.

Any Ideas?

Thanks

Hef

   This guy gave the model and age of his fridge.   It helps to know this.   GE refrigerators have changed radically in recent years.

Either the auger motor is not getting power or the motor is bad or jammed.  Remove the ice bin and try to turn the pronged coupler, it will be hard to turn but should turn.  If it is locked up, remove the back of the freezer with the motor attached to see if it is froze up with ice, if so thaw it with a blow dryer.  If it turns trace back to the switch to see if it is bad in the dispenser area or see if there might be a bad wire.
