Question about Frigidaire 5304458371 Icemaker Assembly
Ideally, I'd like a manual for this ice maker, but specifically, I'm trying to determine how to run the test cycle -- I assume I can boot strap two pins on it to by-pass the thermostat and get it to run though a complete cycle

SOURCE: Ice Maker water keeps running
Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.

is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Whirlpool's Ice Maker Harvest Cycle
most of the information you are looking for is on the page above. I will let you begin by going to that link and saving the Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF. Once you read over that material and are able to use an ohm meter we will move to the test points behind the ice makers front cover. Ice Maker have about a five year average life cycle and many times it is more cost effective if you replace the=> D7824706Q Ice Maker Assembly or click here=> D7824706Q Ice Maker Assembly In the clip below you basically have all the solutions in this one You-Tube Movie=> Ice Maker Repair I believe this is one of the better Whirlpool Ice Maker related video's and covers most all of what you need answered. I will be here to answer any questions. Checking the ice maker mold heater by testing the L and H test points (should show about 72 ohms of resistance) Testing the Ice Maker Timer L and M test points should show around 4400 ohms of resistance Motor You also can answer from the ice maker by testing just what condition your water control valve coil windings are by placing the test probes in the N and V test points where you should get between 150 and 350 ohms of resistance. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, If this solution is helpful please rate my solution, Thanks Sea Breeze
