Which model do you have? Sounds like you have a optic issue but need more information. Also please include the position of the harvest fingers within the Ice maker. Need to know if they are resting in like 2 o'clock position. Thanks
The blinking light goes to the ice maker on/off sensor. This is actually a real easy fix. The sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If you look at the blinking light you'll notice there are two screws holding that section in. Directly across from that is another white piece held in by one or two screws. Whenever you close the door the beam is complete and the ice maker will turn on. To order the parts, find your model number, which is normally located in the refrigerator side, and then call any parts distributor ( i use appliance parts depot), and tell them you need the ice maker sensor kit. Thecost shouldn't be more than $50 I think. Hopefully this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
The blinking red light is just a sensor that shuts down the ice maker when the door is open so that it will not dump. This should have no effect on why the ice maker is not working unless the little door that blocks the beam does not return when the door is shut again...
Here is a tip that I wrote about the reasons why ice makers do not work.
I have a kitchenaid with the same problem. Red light blinks twice when open is normal. Hold the flap down and the red light will be on.= normal= optics are working. If the ice rakes rotate, module is probably fine. Check the simplest solutions first, defrost the freezer in case the icemaker water nozzel might be frozen. That solved my problem. I then increased my freezer temp by a couple of degrees and so far, no problems. Good luck.
