My( General Electric ) GSG 20 IEMF has problem with LED indicator for water/ice ( placed on the left door of my refrigerators ). One LED is lighting, does not matter which one is pushed. From time to time beep sound coming and in that cause LED is flashing. The rhythm of flashing is out of control ( different from second to second )and there is no rule for stopping. After few minutes or ours the beep comes again....... having in mind that my English is not good, I hope that you will understand me and my problem. thank you and best regards

Re: water/ice led indicator malfunction

Daniel, first check the harness that comes out of the freezer door bottom. Make sure it that is is connected right and there are no wires broken or pinched. Then check the dispenser board connectors. On the back right there is a main mother board. On harness J4, top left, 5 pin harness, check for a steady 12V DC voltage on pins J4-1 and J4-2, numbers reads from left to right. If you have this voltage, replace the dispenser control board. If you don't replace the main mother board. back.

Why would the LED indicator light illuminate for the water and crushed options, but not for the Ice option. The icemaker is working and dispensing ice.

I appreciate your post, Cindy!
From what you have described your LED indicator will light for water and crushed option but not for the ice option on your Frigidaire refrigerator. This could be a possible issue with the light on your display. Unfortunately you are unable to change out the light and the whole display would need to be exchanged. If you need assistance replacing the board I would recommend seeking help from a professional technician. -Matt

Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking

J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

The Kenmore Ice maker makes no ice. This is a side by side unit. The freezer is very cold. The water solenoid is not faulty, but is not turning on so the problem must be in the electronic ice level...

Good chance the water line near the ice maker motor is frozen. Thaw out the freezer for about 6 hours - move your frozen stuff to the refrig - ot should be OK - then back again after thawing. This alnost always works.

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

Water flow is governed by a solenoid valve which is controlled by a timer that sets the cycle for all of the icemaker functions. The timer is controlled in turn by the switch that is actuated when the bin is full. One of these three is malfunctioning and to determine which is at fault will require the removal of the icemaker mechanism (to check the switch) and possibly sheet metal on the back of the fridge.
You will also need a multimeter of some kind to check for switch operation and continuity of the solenoid coil. Adequate instruments can cost as little as $3 and in any case under $20, have digital displays and are normally accompanied by some instructions in Chinglish which are somtimes pretty entertaining.

Some precautions before diagnosing the icemaker optics system since there are two different sets of emitter-receiver optics boards and therefore two entirely different procedures for emitter-receiver optics board diagnosis. This could get really tricky especially when the appropriate tech sheet isn’t handily available. To determine which optics diagnostic procedure should be employed, open the freezer door and observe the right side (mullion or partition side) LED status light. If the red LED is NOT flashing two repeating pulses, this usually indicates the older style emitter-receiver optics boards are used and its specific diagnosis procedure should be employed. But then again, this could also mean that the new optics system IS used but the icemaker just happens to be in the harvest mode - OR - the LED (optics receiver) has failed in some bizarre twist of fate. However, keeping the above cautions in mind, we can assume that normally the older emitter-receiver optics system will NOT have its red LED status light flashing each time the freezer door is opened, while the NEW style optics WILL have its red LED status light double pulsing at each door opening.

the most comon problem is the ice machine in the freezer actuates at low teperatures. actuation is when the unit goes into harvest the ice. if your freezer is not aciving low enough temperature the ice machine stops working ' check to ensure the condensor under the fridge is not pluged with dust .Also make shure there is adiquit air flow around the ice machine. hope this helped someone .
