These boards tells the icemaker when it's full and that it has to dump the ice, and it also tells the icemaker when to refill with water.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
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.

I first ordered the electronic control boards. However, they arrived with an Instruction Sheet. The diagnostic procedures listed on that sheet identified that the optics were working properly, so did not use the electronics. That left the motor assembly as the culprit. Ordered that. The motor assembly arrived promptly and installed easily - just like the video. Ice maker began making ice immediately. Thank you PartSelect.
I tried several things first : changed the filter cartridge, then the water control valve, then the control boards but still no ice. Rather than buy a new motor assembly, I bought a whole new icemaker which included the motor assembly and finally SUCCESS! In total it cost me about $350 but you have to try the easier and cheaper things first. One 1/4" screw and disconnecting the wire harness clip plus reusing the old icemaker base and the repair was complete. I would recommend a more detailed discussion on what each part does and the way the colored wires attach. Wire clips can sometimes be connected upside down. I was very happy with how quickly I received the new part. I whole-heartedly recommend PartSelect.
I paid for a service call to have the problem diagnosed, and then ordered and changed the parts myself, saving about 50% off the original estimate.
After calling Sears and setting up an appointment and waiting 7 hours for them not to show.. without any phone call..even after the dispatcher said I was "Next on the List" I figured thilure was the Emitter boards.. I ordered theere had to be a better way.. I researched this site and determined that the most likely cause of fa parts and received them within 3 days with standard shipping. I followed the optical diagnostic instructions that were included and replaced the boards. Within a few hours the ice maker was singing again.
First I removed the icemaker and the sensor boards by removing 6/7 screws. Next, I placed the new sensors into the emitter and receiver and re-installed the components...reset the icemaker and was all done!Last time my icemaker broke I paid a contractor $225! This time I did it myself in 30 minutes and saved $150. And it was so easy my wife could'a done it......
I removed the receiver cover and replaced the board (three screws, two on the board) did the exact same procedure on the emitter board ( three on the cover, one on the board). This process took all of 4 minutes.
Unplugged electrical cord for refrigerator, Removed the 3-screws for the bad Emitter, unplugged the wiring harness, plugged the wiring harness into the new Emitter put into position replaced screws, Removed screws for bad Receiver unplugged wiring harness, plugged in new receiver put into position replaced screws plugged refrigerator electrical cord back in. Working ok.
After reading other repair stories online, i ordered the parts, followed the included instructions to replace the boards and the next day i had a full bin of ice. This is the second refrigerator i fixed with parts from partsselect.com. They are AWESOME!
removed 3 screws on each side of freezer where the ice maker controls are unplugged the circuit boards. un screwed the boards from the plastic and put the new ones in, reinstalled. now, Ice and not over flowing! :)
Being 50 miles from the Sears with a 7 year old unit, I actually changed out both board (a kit) which was 9 screws. 3 screws in the outside panels, and 2 in the larger board, and 1 on the smaller board. Both both boards plug in. I also changed the actual ice maker which unplugs and slides out on my unit. Remove a single screw (1/4") on bottom to remove a plastic shield that covers/protects the plug in. A plastic arm lock is in the bottom guide tray, push it up first. Then unplug the unit. Three more 1/4" screws in bottom to remove the custom plastic mount. Then reverses the process to install the new ice maker. Total $175 plus 1 hour labor. In 6 months the unit will have paid for the repairs. I hope to get 5 years of service from the job
Removed the screws and disconnected the part from the base. Attached the new part to the base and screwed back in. No big deal!!!!
the repair went fine but the ice maker still is not working is there something i am missing
I watched the video on your web site and did exactly what the video showed. I could not a get an appliance parts shop to tell me how to test the sensor, so I went on your site. It not only showed me how to change the sensor,it showed me how to test the sensor in my refrigerator. I have changed ice makers before, but never the sensor. Your site saved me $75 dollar service call and saved me $35 dollars on the part. Thank you very much!!!!
Removed and replaced ecbs as shown invideo. However cannot seem to force harvest cycle. Meter probe of H & T do not seem to make contact with any contacts. Help!!
