Question about Refrigerators
My ice maker stopped working. The refridge is less then 3 years old. The water dispensor works fine, but the ice maker stopped making ice. The infra red light blinks twice and then pauses before blinking twice again. Closed the flap on the other side and the light still dues the blink twice & pause routine. Checked the water line in the back and it looks fine. Also moved things around in the ice maker and there seems to be nothing blocking it. Took out the removable ice bin, washed it and checked the chute. Nothing seems to be out of order. Any other suggestions? I looked for a wire arm to see if it was stuck, but was unable to find it.
There is an electric solenoid that opens the door. If you look up inside the dispenser you can see the solenoid. Either the solenoid is bad or the dispenser module that puts power to it is out. You will need to remove dispenser front and check for voltage to solenoid. If you have power from module, replace solenoid, if no power, replace both parts. It is common for solenoid to short out and damage the module so that both must be replaced. If solenoid is shorted and you replace module, new part will fry.

your ref board seems to be working fine
Did you test the water valve???
if yes and water valve works, than replace the Ice Maker

The flap is probably gummed up with sugar from filling glasses with sugary drinks in them. When the ice drops into the glass it splashes the drink into the chute. It needs cleaning.
Just flushing plain water over, under, around and through it will probably free it up (yeah, I kow it's going to be messy).
