Frigidaire Gallery Ice Maker Stopped Dispensing
Model Number: LGUB2642LF3 Brand:
1 - 5 years
Hi all, my first post.
I have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator, model number LGUB2642LF3 that's 14 months old.
This is a french door, top refrigerator, bottom freezer model. The refrigerator compartment ice maker has now stopped dispensing ice.
Please forgive my lack of the proper terminology, but I'll do my best. When the paddle is pressed, the flapper door between the outside of the refrigerator and inside of the ice maker opens and immediately shuts. The auger does not turn nor do I hear it's motor run. I pulled the ice bin out, checked for anything frozen or lodged in it and found noting. I am able to turn the auger forward and backward by hand with nothing stopping it with the ice bin out.
This is an all in one control panel on the front with the temp displays, water filter status, water, ice, and crushed ice dispenser with push button controls. The water dispenser works fine with no changes. When ice or crushed ice is selected, the light comes on normally and the water filter status light comes on normally.
After doing some reading here on other models, I think it may be a problem with the auger motor actuator. Am I on the right track? Are there some troubleshooting steps that I can take before throwing parts at this thing?
Thank you all in advance for any help and guidance you may offer.
