Hey guys, I have a whirlpool gold SxS ice maker with the bin in the door and the auger motor does not turn on. The shaft is fairly well rusted and wouldn't come out and was seized up(would not turn in either direction. CCW or CW) I did check for power to the motor but I wasn't getting 110 VAC but it seemed every time I pressed the button for the ice the ice flapper would come on and open, but the motor would not turn nor hum. My meter was registering a small amount in voltage change after I would call for ice, I just did not get very accurate readings.

I had the refrigerator on, door closed, and was testing the connection to the auger motor with the connection to the auger motor unplugged. Any ideas? By the amount of corrosion on the motor and the shaft not coming out I'm guessing maybe a replacement for the motor?

IDI Motor

Pins 4 & 5 = 220 to 270 Ω (Motor)

Pins 4 & 5
