Flashing red light on ice maker control unit inside freezer

I'm trying to determine why the red light is flashing on my ice maker control unit (inside the freezer). My model is the Thermador KBUDT4865E01 - I can't find any information in my owners manual on what this red flashing light means. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

    About 6 months. It was bought brand new off of ebay so I'm not sure about a warranty.

    No but the fridge does say the filter is at 5% so maybe that's what it is. Seems to be making ice okay though. I'll change out the filter and see what that does although Thermador says I shouldn't have to change out the filter already (at $30 something each, I'd hate to have to do it this often) but we've had some issues with a new well and dirty water. Thanks much!

    tNormally the ibdicates a new filter is needed or the filler is having problems not filling the ice maker in the allowed time. Have you changed the water filter?

I understand the price seems pretty high have you tried an OEM for a better price. I am understanding that your filter is a common filter 4396510 I think is the aftermarket number

BROKEN INFRARED ICE CONTROL - ON WHIRLPOOL SIDE BY SIDE. CAN I REPLACE THAT PART?


Hi,

The part you need to replace is 4389102 this comes with both boards and replace them as a pair. I have a question though, is the harvest fingers in the ice maker at position like a clock? Also to confirm the flashing of the light when the flap is depressed it 2 flashes and a pause? Not 1 flash and a pause, this means unit is harvesting and the ice maker should be moving and if not the ice maker could have a broken gear. This control unit could run you about 100 buck so make sure this is what you need before your purchase. Good Luck

The ice maker has stopped working. The light inside is flashing red. I checked the manual and nothing is stated about the red light flashing in the troubleshooting section. I've checked the lines and...


this sounds like a control board circuit problem..but first remove perishables and defrost freezer ..turn off or un plug..leave refr door closed..freezer door open..if you have lots of water while defrosting you almost cirtainly have froozen the evap coils solid..freezer cannot work like this..after defrost..plug in and see if temperature returns to normal..if it does it won't last indefinately..your probably have a bad defrost timer and/or evap heater gone bad

Red light flashing on ice control panel in freezer section of my Whirlpool gold GS6NHAXVT02. I have the setting on ''on''.


The red light is supposed to flash. The number and frequency of flashes is a diagnostic tool we use to determine what is wrong if the icemaker is not working. If your icemaker is not working, count how many flashes before it rests, and let us know. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Ice maker stopped working, red light is flashing, however water is working? What is the problem, how do I fix?


For the red light try removing or replacing your filter.

The ice maker usually has a make ice bar about it inside the freezer. The down position is usually on.

Ice maker not making ice.


These Icemakers have plastic gears on the modules that are breaking, also some have thermostats that are malfunctioning. I recommend haveing an experianced tech look at the unit to see if you need the new upgraded indoor ice maker.
