    It's a side-by-side with a dispenser.

    Water dispenses
    Cubes are being made
    Flapper opens when pressing the ice button
    Auger doesn't turn, no noise, nothing
    When I take the bin out and try to spin the motor by hand, it doesn't spin
    Emptied bid and put back in. Still nothing

    Is it the board? The motor?
    Easy to get to? Via the inside or outside of freezer? Easy to repair?

    Shit, that's probably what the motor or board costs.

    They go bad from time to time. I replaced two on one GE fridge over 10 years and replaced the whole unit when it died the third time.

    You can order them online and it's a pretty easy install. 15 min.

    I've fixed a washer, a dryer, ice makers, air conditioners, all thanks to YouTube. They're seriously leaving a lot of money on the table by not charging a small subscription fee at this point, or at least charging idiots $1 to post a video. That would cut out all the gibberish videos there.
