How To Test the Motor

Caution: Conduct this test with the refrigerator unplugged. Test the control module motor for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place one probe into the hole labeled "M" and the other probe into the hole labeled "L". The multitester should show continuity, with resistance possibly as high as 10,000 ohms.

If the motor does not pass this test, you will probably need to replace the control module.

If the heater does not pass this test, replace the ice mold heater.
