SOURCE: Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking

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.

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

What you can try to do is put the ice maker in test mode. Press and hold the ice size button, on the ice maker itself, for 5 seconds. It should cycle through and this could reset it.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

Reset clean light


Did you clean the machine? When you went through the cleaning steps it should have cleared the clean light. I will tell you what to push first Remove the front cover. If the machine is operating then push and release the harvest button. When the machine completes the Harvest cycle it will stop. Push and release the OFF button. Push and release the clean button. The yellow clean light will blink and display will show C. The machine will drain the reservoir and refill it. Go into the next step when the reservoir has filled. Allow the the ice machine to circulate water for at lest 10 minutes. Normally this is when you would add your cleaning solution but i take it you have already cleaned the machine. Now push and release the Clean button again. The yellow Clean light will be on continuously and the machine will drain and refill the reservoir repeatedly to purge out the ice machine. Now Allow the drain and refill process to continue for at least 20 minutes. Now Push and release the OFF button. The clean cycle will stop and the display will show 0. Now push and release the on button. This should have cleared the yellow clean light. Now with that out of the way if it did not clear it then you will need to replace the control board. The machine will steel make ice with no problem and you just clean the machine every 6 mounts. The yellow clean light is just to remind you that it is time to clean the system. The board is quite costly.
