Default Another Ice Maker not working
Model Number: gd5yhaxtl00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hey guys, I stumbled across this site last night when doing some searching after noticing my ice maker was no longer working. Looks like a great site here with tons of useful information, so I registered hoping someone could help me out. After doing some reading I believe the ice maker assembly itself is bad but I'm looking for some confirmation. Anyway, here are the details:

The fridge/freezer is about 5 1/2 years old. The ice and water dispenser in the door works fine. The ice tray currently contains ice but will not drop the cubes. The ice maker "on-off" switch on the right side is in "on" position. When the emitter flap door on the left side is pushed in, I get a solid red light. When the flap is not pushed in and is blocking the optics I get two blinks, pause, two blinks, pause, etc. The only thing I haven't tried is pushing in the emitter flap and the door switch to see what happens. Does that sound like a bad assembly to you guys?

A common problem is a mold heater circuit failure and the icemaker can't enter harvest mode to scoop the ice out of the mold. If you close both flapper and door switch and the optics led shuts off, you probably have good optics and probably a bad icemaker. You can allways take the icemaker apart to confirm bad connections.

Thanks for the reply. When I get home I'll close both the flapper and door switch and see what happens. I'm assuming a failed mold heater circuit requires replacement of the entire assembly?
