Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
This could be something as simple as the actuating switch for the glass arm. I.e the micro switch has a problem. Your also correct in thinking that it can also be the auger motor.

Here are 2 on line sources for parts: There are many sources.

How do you remove the in the door dispenser cup and lever for cleaning


Depends on the make/model, but usually there are a few screws that go in from the front that hold the plastic arms in place along with the spring blade. Most of the time you need to remove the decorative plastic cover around the front of the dispenser to get at them. Pay attention to how things go together, or take pics before and during the process. It will save you a lot of headaches later.

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

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 .

We had the same problem. When we removed the ice receptical the mechanism that turned the ice make was broken and it stopped the ice from being dispensed. I hope it is that simple for you!

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.
