as stated above my icemaker works fine it just doesn't deliver ice through the door when i depress the switch.

i don't know what's wrong (duh):shock:  it doesn't make any noise at all like it usually did

i know there are a few things that could be wrong with it, ie. switch inside the door, maybe a relay or so, seems like the motor isn't turning that turns the tumbler to deliver the ice... the door flapper inside the door works just don't have any idea whats wrong.:(

if somebody is familiar with this model,,(it was made in 4-97)  and could give me some idea what to check i would greatly appreciate it......

found this site the other day and got the help i needed to fix my stove. this forum ROCKS:D:D:D

thanks in advance

1st make sure the controls are not on "lockout"

then youre gonna have to test the auger motor(the motor that turns to push the ice) for power

strip it down to where you can see the wires going to the auger motor. you might need a helper for the next part. freezer door switch held down and then dispenser paddle pushed in. you should be getting 120V to the motor. if not then youll have to check continuity at the microswitch of the dispenser paddle....start there and see how it goes

i hate to nag but..... the control is not on "lockout" right?

so if thats all good the next thing i would check is the microswitch is physically/mechanically being depressed - you should be able to hear it click.

to test continuity on it your gonna have to pop the faceplate off and get into where the lever presses on that tiny little switch take one wire off and check for continuity

ok see the problem,,,,,poped off the cover panel and two little plastic pieces fell out.

it seems one is a round pin that holds the top end of the microswitch in place and the other is the piece that holds the entire switch from moving away from the lever when depressed. both of which are extensions of the plastic housing that all the switches and stuff are mounted in....seems like they just broke off:X

it looks like i will have to replace that whole plastic housing to fix the problem...does this sound about right..........thanks
