Default Whirlpool Ice Dispenser not working

I have a 4 year old Whirlpool refrigerator ED2FHAXST03 that the ice dispenser has stopped working after a power outage. I have 120VAC at the micro switch and continuity thru it but nothing at the dispenser motor leads BR/WH & RD/WH for either crushed or cube. could someone point me to where the control board is.
TIA Jim

Of course not, that way you can't accidentally dump cubes on the floor with the freezer door open.
