Went to a K.A. refrigerator sxs no ice dispensing.  Motor looked rusted leakage from  Shaft tested read bad, well that did not solve problem.  You know every time you think you have it & get cocky , Bam you trip.

Seems the push paddle was not working also, & some how it was not showing good on microfilm so I took it with me.

Special order, blah blah , Tim "The Counter Parts Man" said hey lets take it apart, Duhh why did I not think of that?

Well sure enough it was full of black grease or melted rubber? dont know , but after I cleaned it with keyboard cleaner it works good. To be Installed Wednesday.

For a series of photos, it's best to make an album in the Gallery section and upload them there.  Virtually no limits.

Either unit lost power with a bin full of ice or there's some warm air intrusion at ice door.  Bad door motor or damaged hinge depending on model.  Have had new auger motors strip at the drive bar insert by not catching ice door problem during initial check.  Also check wire harness to auger motor for corrosion.  No replacement or repair for severely damaged wire harness to my knowledge.  Have to replace freezer door assy and that can be major dinars.
