I followed the instructions on the information sheet provided as well as watching a demo video on YouTube. Actual replacement of the emitter and receiver boards took only 5 minutes, but I was not sure it was working till I could here the ice maker harvesting the cubes. Still wanted to be sure so I kept an eye on it for a few hours. Each time I looked in there was more ice. I am so glad I found your website. Parts were about $106. Labor would have cost that much and the repair guy I talked to on the phone said he would probably have to replace the whole unit.

Ice Maker would not make ice

A repairman wanted $600.00 to fix our ice maker. I paid him $88.00 for his "service call" & asked him to leave. I ordered & replaced the ice maker machine & the ice maker still would not work, so I replaced the 2 optics boards next. Replacing the ice maker was most challenging because the plug is so hard to get at, but the 2 optics boards were pretty easy. Just watch the video on PartSelect.com. Work slowly & take your time when pulling out & replacing the optics boards. There were a total of 6 screws for the 2 optics boards. It took me approximately 10 minutes to replace both boards, & now my ice maker is working perfectly! I am thrilled!!

1. I first confirmed that the problem was a bad Infrared Ice making control board (Watched flashing of red light on right side of freezer - solid light would not occur when holding flap on left side of freezer). 2. I unplugged refridg,3. unscrewed both sides of the control unit and disconnected wire clips to the electronic boards. 4.popped in new Boards on both sides and connected clips onto each board. 5. Screwed the boards and covers to walls of freezer. 6. Plugged power back into wall and checked Red light again (when holding flap in, a continuous red light verified it would work). closed freezer and shortly ice was being made. Simple process. (careful using Screwdriver to help take wire off of boards - a small clip holds wire clip on - you need to stick screwdriver into back of clip while unconnecting). Easy and my ice worked perfectly.

No ice production.

We had cleaned the electronic eyes off several times which yielded one or two days of ice production. Since we could tell the ice maker was receiving water and producing ice we went ahead and replaced the controller. Now the ice maker is working like a champ. The instructions were easy to follow and the part was delivered quickly. Unplugged the fridge. Three screws on opposite sides of the freezer, plug in the emitter and receiver boards and replace the screws. Plug the fridge back in and away it went.

It took longer to get the part than it took to repair the water inlet. The help from the staff was very responsible and the repair direction off of the net very clear and understandable. I order the wrong part and was offered assistance and directed to the correct part than there were no issues but clear sailing.
