Have you tried taking your ice bin out and checking for
melted ice that can freeze locking the auger and preventing its movement?
Another item to check is wiring going to and from the dispenser. Many times
corrosion sets in the pin plug just behind kick plate. If the auger motor is
not turning at all then I would believe that you may have a defective door
light switch that also controls a lockout when door is opened. That light
switch tells when door is opened while the opposite happens when door is closed.
If that fails then we need to see how much voltage is present at the auger motor leads just behind the rear panel of your freezers auger motor assembly. To test the auger motor leads you need to have someone hold door light switch in and press dispense ice while someone checks motor leads with a voltage tester. If you have questions I will be glad to answer them for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Check the ice storage container. The
ice dispenser will not dispense ice until the first supply ice has dropped into
the ice storage container.Remove excess ice from the back of the
ice container. Make sure ice cubes are not jammed between the ice maker and the
back of the ice container.
auger won't engage or turn
to dispense ice.Remove the ice bucket and with a hair dryer warm up
the inside where the fork is that turns the auger in the bucket and try it and
if this does not help then you will have to replace the auger motor ,, chances
are the motor is just froze up .--------
If there is nothing jammed then try this./Remove the ice bin out.And then clean the ice bin.
Rotate the auger with your hand.If its hard then there is problem with auger motor.If the auger is not rotating fine then its faulty auger motor or the auger motor is frozen,if you notice ice getting collected there.
Take a hair dryer and blow hot air on the auger motor for few minutes.Take care you dont blow hot air continuously.
But if that is not helping then disconnect auger motor connecting wire wait for 2 minutes clean the connector and reconnect the connector back and see.If that is not helping at all.Then,replace the auger motor.
