Indoor ice dispenser? If so...remove the small panel midways down the freezer door liner.
check for 120vac at the inside two wires on the plug feeding the auger motor while a helper presses the door switch and the cradle.
if voltage is present replace the motor...very common..

It is never a bad thing to leave it to the professionals. Inexperience can lead to more damage or risk of injury. You can always call A&E Factory Service (1-800-905-9505), Sears(1-800-469-4663), or local service man you can trust (servicemagic.com).

ok just checked and i'm not getting voltage on the two inner wires,but if i take resistance readings... pin 1 to 2 is 13 ohms,but pins 4 to 5 it reads 52 ohms.
on a WHIRLPOOL GS6NBEXRQ00 it says ...
Pins 1 and 2 = 10 to 15 Ω
Pins 4 and 5 = 220 to 270 Ω
is this the same as my motor,sure looks like it .
do you need to door closed to read this voltage?
and your saying the wires for pins 2 and 4?

yes you will need to close the door switch to get voltage readings, as the power to the dispenser is interupted by the door being open.

If you have 120v going to the auger(ice dispenser) Motor, and it is not turning then you need to replace the motor.
