Question about Refrigerators
Pam, if the ejector blades are in the 2:00 positon then it's in it's home position. When you open the freezer door, you should see two flashes followed by a pause repeatedly. Hold the left side emitter down and the light should stay on steady. If you have this, the optics are good. Next step is to remove the ice maker from the mount and inspect the module. Make sure that the two clips that are holding the center wheel are not broken, If you only see one clip, then it's broken. If that is ok, make sure the fill tube is not frozen up, they have a habit of doing that. If it is, use a baster and thaw it with hot water. If that is ok, leave the ice maker on the top shelf with the harness attached. Unplug the refrigerator and insert a jumper between T&H. Close the freezer door. Plug the refer back in and wait 50 seconds. Now open the freezer door and see if the ice maker is cycling. You may have to press the light switch 3 times. If it is cycling it will call for the fill when the ejector blades are at 12:00 high. If it's doesnt cycle, try it again. Sometimes this takes up to 3 times to get it to cycle. If it fails to start after 3 attempts and the optics are good, replace the module. Let me know how you make out. Catriver
