It does nothing. M - is for motor and N - is neutral.

I am so confused. My KSCS25inss00 is reading 45Vac across L&N. When i close my emitter flapper the light still blinks 2x per second and when i jump the water test nothing happens... I recently put a new water solenoid in and tested all the lines and had water working in from both sides but nothing in the freezer. There is no ice and i need to get this thing working.. Please help???

So i replaced the optics, and i retested and the LED is working when i close the flapper and now im only reading 85Vac. When i short the leads to get water out there is nothing. Cant even here the solenoid engage.

I think im going to replace the whole ice maker now. I already did the optics and the water solenoids.

Default kscs25ftms01 not dispensing ice

Gene,

My IM makes plenty of ice and the water dispenses, but it will not dispense ice thru the door. The flapper door opens, but the auger motor does not turn.

The light flashes twice with the side flap released and is solid red when I manually depress the flap.

Where would you recommend I start troubleshooting?

Thanks!

Does the compressor run?

Do the fans inside the freezer and on the back of the fridge run?

The model number you posted is incomplete. Verify and repost it please.

GC3SHEXNS00

It sounds normal. fans are running, lights are on, everything as expected. We recently had a power surge which popped the majority of our breakers. This is likely what caused the issue.

Pull the refrigerator out of the wall. Remove the cover and make sure the compressor is running. You have to feel some vibration on a touch. Also check it's temperature. Post the results.

It's also a good time to clean the condenser.
