Gene,

Unfortunately I can not read your mind. The complete model number of the refrigerator and full description on the problem might help better.

It looks like I’m having the same problems but my refig is a Whirlpool Gold GC5SHEXNS00. The ice marker is filling up, its just not kicking out the ice. Thinking ice was jammed, I removed the ice maker, ran hot water thru it and removed all ice. I reinstalled and check the next day. The ice maker did fill up with water, but still not kicking out the ice. I verified that the black tube was free and not iced up. I then check the volts between the “L” and the “N” and getting exactly 106.6 VAC. Next I borrowed a working ice marker module from another frig, installed and getting same results. The LED light blinks twice, then repeats itself when the freezer door is open. I closed just the emitter door flap...and still blink twice. I then closed the emitter door flap and door switch, the LED turns OFF completely. I watch for about 5 mins and nothing happen. No gears turning. I’m thinking I need a new optic PC board kit (Infrared emitter & receiver) but just want to confirm I’ve done all test and this is likely my problem.

Update:
Now the water will not fill the tray since I took it apart and changed out the ice maker module.

Default It Was The Filter....

I have a wonderful Kitchenaid KSRG25FVMS that for the last 6 months has been making ice very slowly. This slowness has crept up over time, I didn't notice the signs: The ice cubes were getting smaller, again you don't notice this since this happens over a period of months. Also since I almost never use the door water dispenser I assumed all was good there since it was dispensing but very slowly.

For the first few years I replaced the filter whenever it beeped at me in the door, this was about every 6 months. One day I got the bright idea to save money by just resetting the filter timer and not replacing the filter. Since it was only used for ice I figured this wouldn't be a problem. This was a bad idea.

Fast forward about 4 months (and it's summer now, I want more ice) and I was getting about 2-3 "harvests" of ice per day....the door water was working (slowly). I used the handy tips on this thread to verify that the LED system was working properly and I even removed the inside ice door that covers the mechanicals since ice cubes (about half size now due to water delivery problems!) were getting stuck on their way to the door bin. So I am at the point where everything should be working fine per the specs and troubleshooting tips in this thread.

Hmmmmm, wonder what would happen if I replaced the filter? Everything is back to normal, tons of normal sized ice, much faster water delivery in the door. I have learned my lesson, replace the dang filter at the proper schedule.

Default Another KitchenAid ice maker problem ...

I also have a Kitchenaid with an ice maker problem, but it's an older model that doesn't have infrared. Mine is model KSRS25CHSS00. Last time it stopped making ice I replaced the entire IM, this time I want to see if I can just replace a part or two. Symptom - not making ice. If I jumper T - H for the harvest cycle, nothing appears to happen. Jumpering L - V causes water to come in, jumpering M - N will activate the motor, and it does turn and will go all the way around as long as itís jumpered. When I jumper H - N and feel the heater coil, it does feel warm. But no ice is being made. What does that leave?

Kevin,

Looks like you are on the right track with new optic.


For the ice maker: I'm afraid you could damage something during the module replacement. You'll see it after you replaced the optic boards.

Steve,

Sounds like the problem is some where in the ice maker control module. You can try to replace it but I would suggest to replace the whole ice maker. The difference in price is just about $10, but the rate of success on ice makers repairs is very low. So, the whole new ice maker will make the repair much more reliable.

Thanks Gene for the reply.

Strange thing happen. Yesterday I open the freezer, felt inside the trays and there was ice. I closed the emitter door flap and the LED light was solid. I then held the door switch and the LED blink once about every second...like it was working again. I closed the door and about 30 sec later I heard the ice kickout. Open the freezer and sure enough, there was ice. But then the LED light went right back to 2 blinks, then pause and repeats it self. Close the emitter and door switches and LED goes completely OFF. Its like it worked one time, then back to nothing. I will order a new optic PC board and hope that fixes it.
