Common solutions for: LG Refrigerator ice dispenser not working

01 - LG Refrigerator Dispenser Control Board
The dispenser control board governs most of the functions of the dispenser system. If the control board is faulty, it may stop supplying power to the entire dispenser system. If only one dispenser part is not working, test each of the dispenser components before testing the control board. It is more likely that a single part has failed. If the entire dispenser system is not working, the control board is more likely to be at fault.

02 - LG Refrigerator Dispenser Switch
The dispenser switches send voltage to the dispenser. If one of the dispenser switches is defective, the dispenser will not work. To determine if a dispenser switch is defective, use a multimeter to test each switch for continuity. If a dispenser switch does not have continuity, replace it.

03 - Ice chute jammed
The ice chute may be jammed. Remove the cubes that are jamming the dispenser chute.
04 - LG Refrigerator Auger Motor
The auger motor spins the auger blade and pushes the ice through the dispenser chute. If the auger motor is burned out or defective, the ice won’t move forward and fall through the chute. To determine if the auger motor is defective, pull out the ice bucket and turn the bucket auger by hand. If the auger turns freely, use a multimeter to test the auger motor for continuity. If the auger motor does not have continuity, or if the motor is getting power but won’t run, replace the auger motor.

05 - LG Refrigerator Dispenser Actuator
The dispenser actuator interacts with the dispenser switches, which power the auger motor and other dispenser components. If the dispenser actuator is broken, it may not activate the switches properly or at all. Inspect the dispenser actuator—if it is broken, replace it.

06 - LG Refrigerator Ice Bucket Assembly
On many refrigerators, the ice bucket assembly uses a separate auger motor to spin an auger blade and push the ice out of the bucket and down the dispenser ice chute. If the auger motor is turning but the ice is not dispensing, the ice bucket assembly may be damaged. Inspect the ice auger and drive coupler for cracks or excessive wear. Replace the ice bucket assembly if necessary.
