KitchenAid Model # XXXXX
I also replaced the thermostat. Ohms readings for motor at points L & M were 8800 and Mold Heater at points L & H were 72 on spec.
Red Light flashes with door open and is steady when flap is pushed in. No ice or water in tray now. Unit was removed and put back after thermostat was replaced. Ejector fingers are pointing up and toward the freezer door at approx. 45 degrees. pushing on the fingers toward the back meets resistance to the force, but fingers move freely in the opposite rotation.
When testing the solenoids, water flowed to the tray. I will fill the tray with a baster and wait for a cycle to start. In the mean time do you have an illustration of the the Icemaker Head showing the gear position in idle mode? If so, could you send it to me by e-mail? Since the unit was disassembled when the thermostat was replaced, I'm not sure I put it back together in the correct position.
