After determining by the flashing light code what the problem was, I ordered the parts. Once the parts arrived, it took 15 minutes to install them by the instructions that came with them and two hours later I was making ice again. Very easy repair and there is a video on the website that shows exactly how to do it.

removed the 3 screws from the receiver first, on hinge side with the flap The toughest part was twisting my arm around and upside down to plug the new board into the wire harness since it had very little slack and the wires were stiff from cold, the emitter on the opposite side was as easy, care needed to be taken with the upper screw partially hidden behind ice maker itself but it was an easy removal. Again, short wires and stiff from cold make alignment of the plug to the board just bit awkward to ensure it was seated properly. 15 mins later I heard the first emptying of the ice maker

Did exactly what the video showed . First I went through the test procedure to conferm my boards were bad . But ice maker didn't work after the control boards were replaced. I did some more research to find out what the problem now could be. I discovered where the water goes into the ice tray the line was frozen. Got the hair dryer out and melted the ice that had the water restricted. Been making ice every since. I tell everybody about (part select) web. Sight now

It was fairly easy my 4 year old daughter helped me, I replaced the electronic boards with ease, the light worked but the water was not coming to the ice maker I checked the line noticed that there was Ice buildup inline so I used a tool to crush the ice and used the the turkey baster to flush the line with hot water, after that the ice maker started to work I saved a lot of money.

Video made troubleshooting problem easy. I ordered the parts and 5 days later I had them. 10 minutes later they were installed and that night I had ice. This is the third appliance I have repaired using the partsselect video and replacement parts. All worked well. Much cheaper than getting a technician. Thank you. Cheap Guy!

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!!
