Do you have a volt-ohm meter and know how to use it ?

To be able to do any testing on the system.

I have a solid light on the ice maker control panel when I hold down the ice level flap.

The plastic fingers in the ice tray are horizontal. There is ice in the tray but no effort by the maker to push it out and refill.

ok so from here we need to be able to see if the receiver is getting voltage or not.

test the J1-1 Red wire to the J1-3 Bk/White test it for D/C voltage

Do you think you can do that with your meter set on D/C voltage 20 should be fine.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Where do i find these wires ?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 10 months ago.

on the receiver board on the freezer door where the on/off switch is behind that cover.
