Question about Thermador 36 in Built In Bottom Mount Refrigerator w/ Masterpiece Handle - KBULT3655E / KBURT3655E
Ice maker uses a IR sensor to determine when the bucket is full.
The light by the ON/Off switch continues to blink.
I have water on the door dispenser and the ice dispenser operates,just no ice is being made.
Can you help with any troubleshooting tips. There are test points on the ice maker, but I have no service manual to determine what output I should have.
Does the light by the On/Off switch suppose to blink continuously?
Thanks for any help you have to offer!

This could indicate a heater or thermostat issue. If you are mechanically inclined, here's what to do. Shut off the water supply to the unit. Pull off the white cover at the head of the ice maker unit. Now you'll see the module for the ice maker, it will have a large white gear/wheel (don't attempt to turn manually, you'll strip it out) and several holes identified by letters, i.e. "t" "h" "n" etc. What you want to do (make sure the bailer arm-metal arm is in the down position) is get a short "jumper" wire, either solid core or braided it doesn't matter. jump between "T" and "H". The ice maker will now start, you'll should see the "wheel" turning, shortly after it will be followed by a slight buzzing noise likely, this is the unit "calling" for water, but it's off, that's ok. We just want to advance to the "harvest' part of the ice making process.
If the unit does advance and empties the mold of ice, you may want to remove the complete ice maker and clean out the mold. It is a common occurrence that over time you'll have a build up of mineral deposit from the water which will cause the cubes to "stick" or if you will, impede the ice from dumping.
If the unit doesn't empty but you can feel the bottom of the mold is hot **be careful-wet your finger first** (you can actually see a small heater/element if you look at the bottom) you'll have to remove it and clean it anyway. If it's NOT hot, you'll need an icemaker assembly, **unless you can test the heater and or the thermostat and find replacement parts. It's becoming difficult to justify replacing parts versus the entire unit from an economical point of view when servicing professionally when one consider's the labour cost etc to the client. It may be easier to justify for a do-it-yourselfer.
Try this procedure, let me know either way if it works or not I'll try to follow up on a remedy.
Hope that helps, Good Luck

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
The icemaker is 110v
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
