Question about Kenmore 5553 / 655532 / 55534 / 55539 Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi, sorry it's been a while but I posted a problem I had with my ice
maker and you were very helpful so I was hoping you could help me again.
I got a new module as you suggested but I can't get the ice maker to start working again. I tried jumpering it but it still won't start.
I tried it according to your instructions but I'm not sure if I'm following the procedure properly so I was hoping you could help me through it.
Sorry to bother but any help would be appreicated. Thank you.
Vik, If this is a indoor Ice maker with the infrared boards, make sure that the boards are working correctly. With the door open, on the right side you should have 2 flashes with a pause, this should happen repeatedly. Now holding the left side immiter flap down, the light should stay on steady. This of course holds true when the ejector blades are in the home position, 2:00. If this checks out jump start the ice maker by removing the thing and setting it on the shelf, harness still attached. Unplug the refer. Insert a jumper to T & H and leave it in. Close the freezer door. Plug the refer back in and wait 50 seconds. Open the door and see if the module is cycling. If not, press the door switch in 3 times while holding the left side immiter blade in. You may have to try this several times to get it going. Once going, pull the jumper out and place the module cover back on and slide it back into it's rail. It has to work sooner or later. I have had bad modules sent to me and stood there baffled when I could not jump start them. Tried another module and it started right away. Let me know if it did it's thing, Catriver
