Question about U-Line Icemaker
When the power switch is turned on, the compressor starts and cools the system as expected. The water solonoid never picks and the control motor never starts. I cannot figure out how the small control motor starts from the circut. I checked its resistance and it has about 600 ohms. I think the control motor has to start the sequence but I don't see the path to start it with the two micro switches in their start positions on the cam.
I did clean the sensing bulb in the mold but I have to cut the wires to check its resistance.
What starts the cycle when you power the unit up?
To continue.. When you turn on the icemaker, the unit has to get cold and turn off the compressor. That starts the dump cycle and at the last part of the cycle it will fill the mold with water. The next time the compressor turns off the dump cycle will dump ice. It actually goes through 2 cycles before you get ice. Hope this helps. MDB

The cycle starts when you turn the icemaker on. It starts the dump cycle when the compressor turns off. The mold heater turns on and the cycle motor stalls until the ice cubes release and lets the moror complete its cycle. Then the compressor starts to repeat the cycle. If the mold heater is bad (it should read about 80-85 ohms) it will not dump all the ice and the mold will overflow on the next fill part of the cycle. If the over temperature switch is bad (checks open) It will not let the mold heaters work. The over temperature switch should NEVER open. If it IS open the mold heaters will not heat. MDB
