George open the freezer and look to the right. That light pictured below should be blinking 2 times and then a pause and repeat. The one that is labeled status LED.
Then if you push the lever on the left keeping your hand and arm low the light should turn solid. Is that happening?

Are the ejector blades in the ice maker pointing in the direction as the picture below?BarryCLICK TO ENLARGE
Barry it doesn't look like the image you showed. Once I remove the ice bin, on the left is a small white door that moves to the open position. If I close it, the light does not blink and on the left side there is a module that contains an on/off switch and a light and that is not on either.
No light at all on either the module on the left or looking through the small door on the right when it closed.
Barry the blinking red light is suppose to be visible with the naked eye? It's not an infrared light? Also should the light blink regardless of whether the little door covering the light is open or closed? And do I have to close the main freeze door switch to see the light?
Hi Barry. I replaced the emitter. Here's my symptoms now:
If I unplug the fridge for 5 seconds and then plug it in again then I see a steady red light on the LED at the receiver. A short time later I hear the ice maker motor come on for a short time. Within minutes the LED turns off and I can't make it come back on unless I unplug the fridge again. And no ice made. I never get a pulsing light on the LED. Only steady or out depending on whether I had unplugged the fridge or not. Thoughts?
Hello George, that board that is not blinking is bad. Barry
Barry after receiving the email this morning about follow up question I assumed that was part of the original question I asked and wasn't getting charged for it. Is that not true?
Only because I'm being asked to rate your answer (again). Which I want to give you a great rating but just based on that request makes me think I'm being charged again.
