Ice Maker auger motor not running
Model Number: GE TFX25JPCG WW Brand: GE Age: 5 - 10 years
GE TFX25JPCG WW
Side by side refrigerator:
I’m trying to isolate a problem with the motor that drives the auger (mechanism that moves the cubes toward the door).
The auger motor does not run when the ice dispenser button is pushed. Solenoid that trips the cube selection engages.
I removed the motor and solenoid chassis, applied AC power to the plug to check both the wiring and motor, motor runs and solenoid works as designed.
I checked the voltage at the plug inside the freezer. There is power to the solenoid circuit but not to the motor when the ice button is pushed.
I need a few suggestions and a wiring schematic so I can continue the problem isolation process.
Update: I removed the circuit board from the door and ran a few continuity checks. There is an open in the selector switch from pins 3 and 4 when in the cube position. Bt there should be power to the auger motor when in the crushed position.
I still don’t get it.
Thanks in advance,
