Question about Refrigerators
I assume this worked before? Are you sure the compressor shuts off or could it be another motor in the dispenser/grinder area? You'll need to find out if a fuse, circuit breaker or thermal cut-out is occurring. Did you check water flow into the 'fridge? .... Clogged line, clogged filter, valve problem, etc. Good luck.

I have this issue too. Its in the dispenser bin. The auger in the back moves fine, but its not turning up front and spitting out the cubes. Gonna pull it apart and see what is up.

Hi Urban Woman,
Unfortunately, your dispenser interface board has gone to appliance parts heaven and needs to be replaced. Fortunately it's relatively cheap. If I recall correctly, all you have to do to access the dispenser board is use a small flat screwdriver. There are 2 locking "tabs"/slots on either side and underneath the board (you will barely be able to see it, they're just that small).
Of course you already know that you need to unplug the fridge before doing any repairs so I can skip that part.
Insert your screwdriver into those slots and pry the bottom of the board out. Then grasp it with your hands and remove it completely. There are three wire bundles on it, remove them and re-install them on the new board. Then simply snap the new board into place.
This should take maybe 15 minutes to do... super easy job.
p.s. Here's a link to the service manual, but the removal of the dispenser board is not in it (everything else is, though, so it may come in handy later)
p.s.s. Since you're going to be unplugging the fridge for the repair, you ought to go to Home Depot and pick up one of these to plug it back into. Transient voltage spikes are most likely the cause of all your woes... including the main board that was replaced.

SOURCE: ice maker not dispensing ice
If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .

Had the same problem. If there is ice in the bin make sure the ice bin is in all the way. there is a
drive gear in the back that has to be engaged. If the
bin is emty open the little door where you can see
if there is ice, on the left you will see the square
end of the ice maker unit. Slip your fingers under
the front face, palm of your hand facing up so you
can feel the bottom of the front of the unit. Over
to the left you will feel a button that you can not
see. Just push it in for a few seconds and the unit
should start. One other thing, make sure the limit
switch is pulled down, thats the plastic on the
wire which shuts the unit off if it is full. Good Luck.
