This is an indicator that the sensor assembly has gone bad. This part is very easy to change. You go go online at apdepot.com to find the part and order it. It will come with both parts, one one each side of the freezer.

Igloo ICE102 FULL sensor is stuck on


Hello If the ice maker light is stuck on full, most likely the Infrared sensor may have shorted out due to water seeping into either the infrared emitter or receiver or both. It is an easy fix. It is best to replace both the infrared emitter and receiver diodes. You can find 2 terminal/lead infrared emitter and receiver diodes on ebay or your local electronics store for cheap. Please ask the guys at the store that they are spectrally matched to each other. You just need to remove the old ones inside the ice maker and replace them with the new ones from ebay by soldering them on. If you cannot do this then best to take it to a local electrical store to get them to replace these for you.

Ice maker has stopped making ice. Infa-red light on inside doesn't seem to be working


One of the causes of ice maker not producing ice is a bad solenoid valve allowing water to pass by and causing the water line to freeze inside the freezer. In other words, if the valve is not holding very well, it will allow water to pass in the line that supplies water to the ice maker. A small drip will ensue and slowly freeze in the line and eventually turn into an ice plug that will prevent water from filling the ice tray. Thawing out the freezer will not solve the problem, you will have to replace the solenoid valve.

P.S.Test the solenoid valve coil and disconnect the line from the valve to verify that it is not allowing water to pass when not energized. Test the infra red module according the manufacturer's instructions if you have them at hand. If the solenoid valve is good and the infrared sensor system is bad , replace it (Infrared system) . The ice maker should be the last part to consider for replacement at this time.

Icemaker not making ice


If water is also not com out of dispenser then filter should be changed. If water dispenses but ice ice is not being made, the sensor arm or infrared sensor may be stuck or blocked. If sensor is OK then ice maker needs service.

Ice Maker Infrared light doesn't light


Each mold tray has a heating element that is turned on to free the ice cubes from the mold tray and allow them to fall into the ice bucket when the tray is rotated into harvest position. Sounds like that is not being turned on... or is defective..

Blinking red light on kitchenaid side by side no ice, but still have cold water


I had a blinking light, two flashes then pause, I did two things, not sure which worked, blow dryer to the black tube, and took a Q-tip to the sensor eyes (on both side of the walls), after a few minutes of trial and error, the light went out and I heard the water from the fridge, so hoping this would solve the ice maker issue!
