Broken/frayed wires comes to mind on this model, where the wire harness goes into the freezer door. This has become very common on side by side models.

Lots of members have found frayed and broken wires causing the auger motor or ice maker to be dead. Remove your bottom kickplate grille, Remove the black wire harness loom too, broken wires can be underneath it.
Took a look at the wiring, nothing obvious. I’ve got a real fear of making things worse. Think I’m going to learn to live with taking ice out of the bucket by hand. I suspect you guys are right about the wiring. Thank you for the help
I have a Whirlpool WRS526SIAH00 refrigerator that is not dispensing ice. The ice maker is working and the ice bucket is full. I press the dispense and the flapper opens but the auger motor does not start. I replaced the auger motor and that did not fix it. I replaced the dispense control board...
Your Kenmore 106 is made by Whirlpool, so all the parts in that thread are identical to yours, you can do the voltage test at the control board in post #4 of that thread to verify the control board is sending the volts when the ice dispenser lever is activated.
