J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

I hate to ask the obvious but is your water supply turned back on since the filter change?

unfortunately, the heater is molded into the unit.
without testing every part of the icemaker there is now way to be certain which of the following has failed...
USING THIS DIAGRAM -
#11 is the heater assembly
#17 is the thermostat that controls the heater.
An entire unit replacement is not necessary.
Hope this helps.

The ice maker has a pin plug in the back of most model
refrigerators. Disconnect there if nothing works to turn it off. What is the
model number of your refrigerator? Does the ice maker have a shut off arm that
turns the ice maker off, switch or does your model refrigerator have an
electronic eye that turns the ice maker off? Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
