Question about Refrigerators
When removing doors with an ice maker. Under cover on top off unit there is an electrical hook up, unplug it. then at bottom of freezer door there is a water line, it has a quick connect on it. Push in to release then pull apart. Take screws out of top hinge and remove door. Same on refridge side, just no wires or water line.

unscrew the cover plates on the top door hinge there are quick connects for the elects and 3 bolts on the freezer side and just 3 bolts on the refg side before you removed the freezer door pull the kick plate and there is a water line quick connect you will need to disconnect it as the tube runs thru the hinge after the top bolts are out pull up on the door and it is off >>>Note: there are some small plastic washers on the hinge post make sure you dont lose them

The general rule is to put 2/3 cup of water into icemaker , and if it dumps , but doesn't fill , replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump , replace the icemaker Pt # 2198597 . Check the black fill tube above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is clogged with ice . The fill line runs from the back of the refrig , between the liner and cabinet ( unaccessable ) , and down to the icemaker . Some of this model refrig , come with a coupling on the back , which you can disconnect and blow thru , to see if it is clear to the icemaker . If you do not have a coupling , you may want to aquire one Pt # 4211117 , in case this happens again , also , turn your freezer control down slightly , it will be a quick troubleshoot step . It sounds like the optics are ok , but I'll still give you the information .
Open the freezer door and if you get 2 pulses followed by a pause repeatedly , press in on the left side flapper door and the optic should stay on steadily . If you still get the 2 pulse and pause , then the optics are faulty . If you get no light , the icemaker is in the harvest mode ,( trying to dump ice ) . If the icemaker arm is in the normal position and no light , the optics are faulty . When the optics are faulty , replace both sides , the emiter board and reciever board . They come togather in a kit Pt # 4389102 .
