I WILL HAVE TO GO BACK TO MY SISTERS AND LOOK AT IT. Threw it away after I ordered the ice maker unit. Will advise. Thanks CMC
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok when you go back to the unit you can take a small jumper wire made out of a short piece of insulated #12 wire and the ends stripped back about 1/2 inch with you and on the front of the icemaker remove the white square cover and with the jumper wire jump to the T to the H and once it starts to move remove the jumper and see if the unit will then cycle and fill with water

Thanks again! I called my sister and got the #'s prior to going back. As follows: Model # ***** Serial # *****
Anything else I should know prior to returning? FYI - Have VOM and am familiar with using if required. Thanks CMC
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Thank you!

Yes just jump T to H and once it starts to move remove the jumper or it will cycle but not fill if you do not remove the jumper and you can test voltage to the water inlet valve as the rake arms get to the 12 o`clock position and you can also jump L to V to get just the valve to be energized.

All is well in Mudville! My sister is the dumbest person on Gods created earth! Went there to check it out and perform diagnostics and found an almost full bin of ice. When questioned she said, "Well it didn't fill up right away, and when I looked last it was only half full. That's why I said it was only working intermittently". Mind you 3 people are constantly getting ice from the door. Her next comment was, "Well it doesn't make that sound and re-fill the ice maker right after it dumps. It seems to wait a few minutes before I hear the water cycle in. The old unit filled right away". I told her it may have a different cycle time programed in but what the hell is the difference its making ice! I did jumper T & H and watch the cycle, then L & V to fill the ice unit and all worked well. Except I left L & V in to long and over filled. Dah! Thanks for your help. You know your products. Merry Christmas. Craig
