Ice maker not making ice and red light on the inside is blinking

After reading the others comments, it could be the motor or the line, however the one thing that I did not see with the others, if that the light on the inside of the freezer (where you can turn the ice maker on or off) is blinking red. What does that mean? What should I do?

Answer provided to me, by KitchenAid customer service: "Thank you for taking the time to write with your inquiry and concern regarding your appliance Your emails are extremely important to us and would like to apologize for any delays in responding to them. We are working diligently to replying to all of our customers. The blinking red light that you reported is normal. Your refrigerator uses an infrared beam of light to detect the level of the ice in your ice bin. Because this beam is not visible to the naked eye, a red LED light will blink every time the refrigerator checks the ice level. This may happen when the door is opened, but it is merely an indicator that it is functioning properly. If you have any other questions or concerns about your KitchenAid appliances, please don't hesitate to let us know. You can reach us by replying to this message, or by calling us toll-free at 1-800-422-1230."

I have a Whirlpool Model GD5YHA. The icemaker is not making ice. The red light is blinking.


Your have not given the full model #. Anyway most likely you have the Ice Maker Optical Level Sensor.

Just red light blinking does not mean faulty here. There is a Optical Sensor check sheet. You have to follow those instructions.

Google "Whirlpool Ice Maker Optical Sensor check sheet". You will get the instruction sheet and/or youtube videos on the subject.

Not making Ice means either the ice maker is faulty or Optical sensor faulty or water valve cannot feed water due to malfunction or line frozen. Also freezer should be below - 12C to ice maker sensor to work.

The ice maker is not working and red blinks on the


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Kenmore Elite ice maker is not working & red light is blinking


Most likely a problem with the main ice making unit itself. I bought mine at ebay for $49 including shipping. Very simple to replace. You just swap the wiring harness and bottom plate. Takes about 20 minutes to do.
Make sure you do the IR led test. If you think you IR sender and receiver are bad to, $57 on ebay for the set. Most likely not your water solenoid in the lower back of frig (it gets the signal to turn on from the receiver module of the IR board.
Probably not your water filter (cuz the front water dispenser still probably works right?)
And probably not a clogged or frozen line.
Good luck. When it doubt, trust ebay!

Blinking red light


hi there,

the red light means that you have blockage somewhere in the dispensing of the ice.

check the ice paddle for any breakage and the inside of the door and water line for any frost build-up.

if everything checks out okay, it will be the water valve itself or the water solenoid.

Ice maker is not working


if you keep your hands out of the little beam slot on the paddel that is located on the left of the freezer and push it in the beam should shoot across to the reciever on the right and the light should stay on constant, that is if you have the switch on the right side turned on.

if it is turned on and the paddel is depressed and the light is still blinking the you need a beam kit part number 4389102
