Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
I found two troubleshooting manuals, the Whirlpool "consumer services technical education group R-92", which is fairly good but misses some information, and a diagnostics link http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34 In the link, the test points are described. Using those, I've measure the voltage from L to N and found no voltage. This is supposed to indicate that the icemaker has no power. The optical boards are testing out just fine, so how come the icemaker has no power? I've also measured the wiring harness attached to the icemaker because there is something that looks like a fuse mounted by the heater, and all the wires measure good connectivity straight through the harness. I don't have a wiring diagram for the wires coming from the freezer, however. As always, any help is very much appreciated.
The receiver board on the right side was noticeably burnt and inoperative. I replaced both optic boards. It immeditedly started the cycle and after one cycle the receiver board burnt again. Any suggestions.

If there is no power after the power check,look at the plug that goes into the ice maker. If the prongs are laying below the plastic plug, they will not contact the ice maker. My solution was to slightly raise them back up with an awl ( an ice pick would also work). I find this site very helpful and interesting. Rocky

Willn2try. On the indoor ice maker the immitter board and receiver board will determine when to send power to the module. This is probably why you are not reading any voltage on your test points. When the thermostat closes, the emitter board sends out a infared pulse. If the path of the pulse is not blocked (like no ice in the bin) it will then send power to the module and start a cycle. Since you stated the optics are good, try testing for your voltage by holding down the left side receiver board, light switch and do not block the beam. You can bypass the thermostat by jump starting the cycle. Place a jumper in T&H, place the IM on a shelf out of the way of the boards. Close the door and unplug the refer for 30 seconds. Plug the refer back in and wait 45 seconds. When you open the door the cycle should be started. Cativer
