Thanks Bryan, you're probably right on your answer. I just looked and the fingers are frozen solid in the middle of the ice currently in the tray.
This all leads me to believe that the emitter was not the problem to begin with. But probably the thermostat or heating element?
Not quite sure how to check those, short of replacing both? I'm not well versed with checking if a particular part is good or not, although I do have a multimeter, but no ohm meter or whatever is used to check continuity and such.
Is there a quick/easy way of checking the thermostat and element? Can we assume if the emitter was working to begin with when the ice stopped making, that one or another of the heating element or thermostat went bad, causing it to simply freeze up and stop working?
Sorry for the follow up question, but this is the first time I have used this service, and simply want to make sure I have covered my bases...
Hope you understand,,,,I will def accept once I hear back, and thank you for your help!
