Whirlpool auger issues
« on: November 02, 2020, 06:42:19 PM »

Side by side whirlpool
Ice maker in the door
The auger is not turning.
Not frozen.
Tried replacing the auger motor with a new one. Still no go.
The ice chute door does open.
Which would imply the switch and selonoid are working.
I will edit this later with the model number.

Remove wiring harness and put meter probes on hot leads going to motor leads then press auger button are you getting voltage to motor wiring harness hot leads? Post model # to trace the wires going to hot leads.

Look for Tech sheet under or behind the bottom grill it might be taped to the bottom of frame in a plastic bag. LOOK closely in there you will find the Schematic and the Power Supply Diagram and tracing the Power to the Motor.
