Refrigerator won’t dispense ice. The auger turns but doesn’t seem to have the power to move the ice. Put 1 to 2 cubes in it will dispense but any more it gets suck. Auger switches direction when switched to crushed but has the same issue, not enough power to break the ice. Any thoughts? Thanks, Chad

Hi,

Your auger motor coupling may be stripped causing this problem, check that out first.

Look at this photo:

Here's the auger motor coupling for your model(Video Included):

Yes, because you should notice the coupling teeth would look grinded down.
