niobrara:
Ohm out the motor.

WadmalawJoe:
What kind of reading should I get?
How do I get to the motor, thru the front or from inside the door?

JWWebster:
If the door is opened the power is killed to the dispencer. I wonder if that switch is out or stuck in? Look for a spring loaded switch in the door frame of the freezer.

WadmalawJoe:
I took some pictures of my fridge for easier clarification;
My in the door dispenser (flash sure shows up the grime and smudges)


The inside panel


The paddle switch


The sensor switch and on/off switch

Thanks JW,
The switch seems fine, the water side dispenses water as normal. If you hold the freezer door open,so the switch is out, it will not dispense.
