Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
I tried a suggestion from this forum of seeing if the auger moves freely when turned from the back of the ice bin (it does.) Then I checked to see if the motor was getting voltage when I pressed the door dispenser (holding the door closed button in) This revealed the problem, but I don't know how to proceed. Is there a fuse or something I can check? Frig in 6 weeks out of its one year warranty!!! Thanks.
The next step would be to use an "Ohm-meter" to check the switch on the door that is supposed to activate the auger circuit. If the switch is good, then you need to check the wires leading up to the switch for available voltage. (Keeping in mind that you may not get voltage on that line unless the "door closed" switch is closed.) If you have good voltage there, then you need to check the wires leading to the auger motor to see if the voltage gets to the motor. If the connection is good, and you get voltage to the motor, then the motor is faulty.

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.
