SOURCE: whirlpool ice maker ,no harvest?
Hi, The optics almost never go in those unit's, the problem is in the icemaker module itself. If you can jump it thru a fill and then no advancing thru to harvest afterward ( provided your freezer is below freezing ) it's the module. You can either replace just the head/module or the entire icemaker. For the difference of only about $50 I always replace the complete assembly. The most common one being about $150 complete, # 2198597 and this should be the one for your fridge since you mentioned the optic component's. Hope that help's. Thanks for choosing "fixya" for your fridge inquiry. Please take a moment and rate this solution if indeed it solves your problem. Thanks again and good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: I have a Ice-o-matic, model
Pretty sure it is a bad valve. You can unplug the unit and disconnect the wires to the purge valve then plug the unit in again and try to make ice like that. If the valve leaks through with no power it is obviously bad. You note that you unclogged the valve in the past. I have taken a few of these apart and sprayed the internal diaphragm with food grade silicone lubricant but this is a very short term fix. I always wind up ordering and replacing the valve.
In the mean time you could plug the purge hose for a day or two. I would not run it too long like this because you will get a mineral build-up in the unit. The reason for the purge is that minerals do not freeze and wind up settling in the sump. Eventually enough mineral deposits build up to circulate and clog up the water tube and deposit on the evaporator plate. Some minerals are always going to stay in there and cause problems but with no purge they will REALLY build up.
