This part fixes the following symptoms:
Go first to Kitchenaid web site and download their consumer services Technical diagnostics on the ice maker. Very well written and clear to follow. Instructions step you through interpretation of blinking code lights which is key to finding the real problem and leads you to repair the correct failed part. My diagnosis said to replace both emitter and receiver. I replaced the emitter first and tried it and solved the problem I didn't need to buy the receiver but I have a spare part now. Do the diagnosis and save yourself some money. PartSelect got the parts to me quickly and saved me money compared to our local parts supply companies.

The ice maker would not fill with water. Water was available to in-door water dispenser. All signs pointed to the ice maker control boards. Ordered and replaced the boards. Within a couple hours it was making a new batch of ice every 30-60 minutes. The repair instruction video was a great help....made the repair a snap!
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!!
diagnosed the problem to be the emitter and receiver boards. replaced in about 15 minutes. works like new!
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
My icemaker quit 3 years back and at that time I searched for do-it yourself repair books with no success. I found this parts place web site and people having the same problems as myself. I purchased the parts as others have and problem solved! Ice all the time, woo hoo!
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.
1) unplug the refrigerator2) remove the cover plate for the sensor board on your left facing the refrigerator3) unplug the sensor board then remove the board from the cover plate.4) install the new board onto the cover plate andreinstall 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.
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.
Unplugged unit. Taped ice maker flap up and out of way. Removed screws holding emitter board, unplugged old board and connected new. Did same for receiver board on opposite side.
i replaced the electronic control board of emitter and receiver
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!
