Question about GE Refrigerators
I have checked the switch that detects when the door is closed. It seems to be fine. Also, when I push the lever to dispense ice, I can hear the solenoid making a noise, so that switch apparently works. I think the problem might be the auger motor, control circuit, or wiring? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Hi, On GE refrigerators the motor is not quiet. Open your freezer, remove the ice bin, press the door switch, make sure it turns off the light, and then press the ice dispenser lever. The solenoid will click, which also opens the ice door and the auger motor will turn on and you can definitely hear it. If the motor runs then inspect the auger connection on the rear of the ice bin, its plastic and they break. On some models, like my GE Adora there is a switch just for the ice maker behind the ice bin. If you need more help let me know as with all long distance troubleshooting we try with the information we have. Thanks and Good Luck!
