English term or phrase: auger motor
The sentence is from a refrigerator manual: "When a door opens, the interlock switch automatically disables the auger motor of the
ice maker for safety reasons."

An auger motor seems to be the motor that physically dispenses the ice to the ice machine, but I haven't been able to find a Norwegian term for it.
