Our ice maker quit making ice last year, at the time I removed and replaced the motor board, still no ice. Fast forward to this year, I tried to repair this ice maker learning on the way. The IR Tx board LED seemed dim (using the camera on your phone) so I replaced the board, still won't work. So I replaced the RX board, still no ice. Then I probed the ice maker for voltage, I found some 118vac. Anyways I learned a bunch, where to jump and what to test. I jumped for water, that worked, jumped for motor power N to M, got nothing, motor wouldn't turn on. So I rechecked my power at the ice maker harness. Between the black (hot) and the white (neutral) I got 49vac. I checked the door switch for cont. that checked ok. So am I looking at a main control board replacement? Or is there another rout/ check I can do?


Thanks!

Ok, I went through the diag and checked the ice bin status, that checked as empty. I checked for power at the connector under the fridge, that checked ok for power when the door switch was closed. So it looks like I have a broken neutral wire in the freezer door. :(
And I found the tec sheet for the ice maker in the evap cover. LOL


Thanks again for your help ohm
