There are 2 systems involved, for your icemaker to make ice

The ice maker and fill valves and tubes

And the infra red sensor system in side the liner of the freezer.

Check and make sure the water tube to the ice maker is not frozen,
and check the solenoid resistance for 500 to 1000 ohms.

De ice the fill tube or replace the valve as needed.

To test the sensor system : make sure the switch on the right control panel is on.

Close the freezer door for 1 minute then open, the red light should be on solid/steady.
If the light pulses or no light at all, close the freezer door and wait 1 minute.

Open the freezer door, and press the flapper panel on the left side of the wall, if the light pulses or no light at all replace the emitter/reciever kit.

Part number: AP3137510

Part number: AP3137510


If tube and valve check ok, if sensor system checks ok, replace ice maker assembly.

Default ice maker

Joe,
I removed the ice maker assembly to remove excess ice thinking the build up may cause the unit from working. Prior to doing so the sensor light was blinking after opening the freezer door. Now, after re-instralling the assembly, the light is just off after I open the door. If the wire harness came loose when I took the assembly out would it prevent the sensor from working?

Joe,
Go figure. I just checked again and the sensor light now is back to blinking after opening the freezor door.

You will need to replace the infra red sensor system.

The light should be on "solid" when you open the door.

Also check for a sticky door switch.
