If I remove the ice bin, hold the door switches closed, and "jiggle" the gear on the door (that drives the auger) up and down the motor will start after a few "jiggles". If I put the bin back on it will even dispense a couple of cubes (some of the time) but then just stops. It's as if the bucket isn't depressing the gear far enough or maybe there's a momentary contact switch under the gear that is dirty?

 

Don't have a tool to remove the screws that hold the gear in place, there's not enough clearance around the heads for the sockets I have (it's a hex head screw), is that a specialty tool?

 

Thanks

HW

Sometimes that shaft comes up in the motor and barely makes contact. Take off the bucket and remove the 2 screws that hold the auger drive to the door and remove the pieces. Remember the order it came out. Then tap on the auger shaft to see if it goea down anyway. You also may have a worn motor where the shaft goes into the motor itself. Look above the top freezer door pin and see if there is a cover. If so, you can remove the cover, motor screws, connector, and then drop the motor down.
