My ice bucket kept over flowing with cubes

I did some research on the website and found out that there is a test with the sensor lights. When I looked at mine, they were not turning on or blinking when the door was openned.

The repair was very easy to accomplish and all I needed was a small philiips screwdriver. I unscrewed both left and right side panels covering the circuit boards and pulled the connector off. I'd say the most diffcult part was lining up the connectors to the boards since there's not a lot of room because of the harness length. Once the boards were connected, they set in place easy and I put the covers back on.

A word of warning, it took the system about ten minutes until the cycle started and water started filling the tray. But aside from that, everything is working perfectly well.

I saved about $200 in service fees!!

Ice was made intermittently, and then no ice at all!

My ice maker about six months ago started to ice make very intermittently and eventually stopped all together. The emiitter no matter what I did was giving me two flashes then a pause, over and over again. I purchased the emitter kit and with a Phillips screwdriver in about five minutes my ice maker kicked the sulinoid on and ice was already started!!! Fast and easy repair!!!

CustomerRogna from Antioch CA

Ice machine stopped making ice but, water still working in door.

I went online and watched a U-tube video that said it was most likely the electronic emitter and receiver boards and showed how to replace them. I first unplugged the appliance (just to be safe) then, I unscrewed the screws holding the faceplate on. The board simply has a plug which you unplug with a little care and effort. I then plugged in the new board, resituated it into the hole and screwed the faceplate back on. You simply do the same for the other board on the other side. Viola! Lots and lots of ice!! The guy at sears said I shouldn't do work on such a complex appliance. Probably because I am a woman! Anyone can do this job! Winning!

CustomerDAVID from GIBSONIA PA

Ice machine stopped working

After unplugging refrigerator, removed emitter and receiver cover plates on each side of freezer unit (3 screws each) and mounting screws for circuit boards. Unplugged old boards and plugged in new ones and reinstalled boards and then cover plates. Although, indicator code lights seem to still indicate a problem, ice maker has resumed operating after 24 hr.

CustomerStephen from North Bend OR

Ice maker stopped making ice

Replacement of parts was simple. But there are three main reasons that ice maker quits: door sensors stop working; ice maker, or it control system, stop working, or the coil controlling when water is released into the ice maker stops working. It was easy to replace the door senors; repairman replaced the ice maker and control board, which is located in one end of ice maker, but it ended up being the coil or simply a frozen water outlet into the ice maker that stopped the system from from working. The first thing you should do is to make sure that the water outlet into the icemaker is not frozen - use a hair dryer to melt frozen ice in the outlet - don't melt the plastic outlet with high heat. If the system still does not work go to this: look at red sensor on door to the the right. If it blinks twice in a couple of second with a time out and then repeats over and over, close the door on the receiving sensor on the left hand side of the casing and if the red light comes on steady then the sensor is working properly. So, now you have the coil that turns the water on and off or the water maker itself that can be bad. It will be one of these that are at fault, but not both. Call a repairman.

Icemaker not working

Did not have elec. schematics or instructions, thought the problem may be the emitter/receiver. Ordered these parts, and included in the package were instructions for testing the e/m bd. Followed instructions for testing the e/m and determined the e/m was OK. Did not remove the boards from the box. Checked the internet and found schematic for the ice maker, tested and determined the ice maker was faulty. Problem solved.

CustomerKenneth from Scott LA

Ice maker not refilling

1) unplug the refrigerator
2) remove the cover plate for the sensor board on your left facing the refrigerator
3) unplug the sensor board then remove the board from the cover plate.
4) install the new board onto the cover plate and
reinstall the board in to left side of the freezer compartment.
5) repeat this proces for the right side of the freezer compartment.
The two boards are very different and you will have no problem telling the difference between them.
6)Plug the refigerator back in and observe the red indicator light on the right hand side of the freezer compartment (it should be blinking) . Then hold down the flap on the left hand side and the blinking red light should go solid on. If it hasn't you have another problem with the ice maker.

Ice maker would not release ice cubes

My Ice maker would not release ice cubes, it thought the ice bin was full. So I got on You Tube and looked up how to videos. Partselect videos were the best that I found and the prices were low also. The whole repair took about 15 minutes.

CustomerMona from The Sea Ranch CA

Ice maker not making ice

Removed screws holding face plates in place inside the freezer housing ... unplugged the old emitter and receiver, then plugged in the new emitter and receiver. Screwed the face plates back in place. Actually, this repair took place a few years ago. When my ice maker quit recently, I noticed the red light inside the freezer housing was not blinking properly. I remembered from my previous experience that the pattern of red light blinks was diagnostic, but of course, the pattern is not described in my owner's manual. The installation instruction sheet that comes with this part does give the diagnostic patterns, however. As it turned out this time, when I was ready to install the new parts, I discovered that one of the little ice-flipper thingies (technical term) was caught on the ice cube-freezing tray ... I released the flipper thingy, and, in time I was back in the ice-making business. So the new part is stowed away in the pantry until the present emitter/receiver parts fail ... and I made a copy of the red-light diagnostic pattern to put in the owner's manual. Now, all I will have to do when the existing parts fail, is remember where I stowed the replacement parts!

CustomerDale from Mansfield OH

Ice maker quit making ice

I replaced the Electronic control boards because the indicator lights were letting me know that there was a problem, but!!!! when that did not fix the problem, I took the ice maker out and removed the control module from the end of the icemaker only to find out that water had gotten in there and corroded the electronic contacts... this may have been why the indicator lights were not working on the emitter and receiver. I was going to purchase just the module, but the entire ice tray was beginning to de-laminate and plastic was flaking off all over. To make a long story somewhat shorter, I purchased a new icemaker and it works fine... one caution though... My icemaker did not come with any information that told me I had to flip the icemaker to the "on" position from vacation mode by inserting a screwdriver in the back of the module inside of a small white ring. This hole is where the shut off arm WOULD go if my model had one.
