KitchenAid KSRG25FVMT00 side-by-side.  When pressing the ice dispenser lever the auger does not turn.  I removed the ice bin, which was locked solid, cleaned and dried it, but still nothing when pressing the lever.  A also removed the built-up ice in the chute and around the drive bolt.  Suggestions on where to start to diagnose the specific problem?

First, listen when ice lever is depressed. Do you hear micro switch click? If not, it could be as simple as switch holder being broken:)

Well, you might laugh at what I tried, but it seems (hopefully) to have resolved the issue.  The bin and chute were full of ice - one solid block.  After clearing all of that the motor did not work, so I posted the plea for help.  I had a thought that maybe water or ice had traveled down the shaft and had the entire column frozen.  So I used a ratchet to apply pressure in both directions to the shaft.  Nothing seemed to move, but after closing the door and giving the lever a couple of tries it creaked itself back to life.  And now it works!  Is that a common trick to try?

Yes, those shafts are prone to freeze up from time to time.
