Icemaker not producing ice

Icemaker module and optics have been replaced. Measured voltage @ L1 and M test points on the icemaker module is only 78 volts. Voltage @ the wall receptical is 124 volts. Any idea why there would be a voltage drop to the icemaker?

    Icemaker is not making ice cubes. fridge is 3 months old.

    Well if your ice cube bucket is on the freezer door it self then it could be anything from the optics system to a bad icemaker to a water valve issue...if its located on the side freezer wall. the water valve could be bad or the i/m module/icemaker

    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 :)

    Replaced water valve to ice maker -used jumper method on the ice maker to test - worked once then not again. checked the voltage coming in and it was 33 volts the ice maker also won't cycle with the jumper...

    You need to replace the icemaker . Pt # 2198597 . When you open the freezer door . the laser flash 2 times , then pause , then 2 more times continually (normal) ? If the laser does not light at all , then icemaker is in the harvest mode ( may be stuck , replace icemaker ) . If in harvest mode , even slightly , jumper will not work .

    Ice not ejecting led flashing

    Open the freezer door look at flashing led. Now on the left side is a flapper push that in with your hand be sure to keep your hand out of the way of the hole . where the led is now should be solid red. If it isnt then you need new optics. If it is then open the flapper in front of the icemaker at the top of the freezer. You should see the icemaker running width wise in the freezer. You may need a step stool for this next step. The icemaker should have what i call teeth pointing upwards at a 45 degree angle towards you. If these teeth are pointing down in the ice then you need a new module. which is behind the white cover of the icemaker on the left.. Hopefully this helps. Usually the gear head is broken on the module but of course you will have to remove it to find out. Happy hunting

    It sounds like you have covered all the primary troubleshooting checks. There is only one thing I can think of at this point.
    Check the voltage coming to the water valve during the icemaker cycle. The power to the valve is decreased by the resistence of the icemaker heater from 120 volts down to about 108 volts. It is not uncommon to have a valve that will open when you put 120 volts to it, as you do when you switch solenoids, but not open at the decreased voltage when it goes through the icemaker circuit.
    If you are getting voltage to the valve when it cycles, and you know for sure the water line to the icemaker is clear, then you will need to replace the valve.
    Post back and let me know what you find.

    Ice Maker on/off switch has blinking red light, will not produce ice. Manual no help

    When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

    Whirlpool Icemaker not working

    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
