Thread: LG frig ice auger (cursher motor)

    LG frig ice auger (cursher motor)

    Model Number: LFXS30766S
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    Our ice maker makes ice fine. The Auger Motor actually does work when thawed (moves grinders actively as long as flap is being pushed) until freezer temperature reaches freezing, then it will "sound" like it is starting but stops after just few seconds.
    I suspect there is water in the motor unit itself- is that possible?
    I've had the freezer compartment apart enough to see the motor, dried it with a hair dryer (did this twice, 1 year in between) and in between that I left it unplugged empty x 2 months.
    The motor acts normally (at room temperature) for ~12 hours, before ice ready to be dispensed, then only grunts and stops in 2 seconds.
    Thank you for any advice,
    csd

    I am not sure if water could get into the motor.
    I cannot get decent pictures of this motor so am not sure the below would apply.

    If possible remove the cover for the gears on the motor and check for water in there.
    Remove the cover carefully just to be sure parts do not fly all over the place.

    If there are any signs of water I would clean it out and replace the grease with a good low temperature grease.

    Also check for any damage to the gears.
