Hi everyone:

A few days ago the ice maker stops working. I went through the troubleshooting guide in Whirpool and others website but still, I cannot narrow down where is the problem.

I already checked the door switches, the water valve, the water filter, and they all look fine and working in proper order. I read on another website that the optic switch could be the problem. This is a door mounted icemaker, and according to this site when I open the freezer door the light emitter on the left side should blink. In addition, if I close or push the light deflector the emitter-light should be on. In my case, the light never comes on. Since I have the schematic I was wondering if I short the light receiver output it would force the ice maker to cycle.

I have attached the schematic which in addition includes an automatic diagnostic test which in my case when setting to diagnostic it behaves in a different way.

Your comments are welcome.
