Yes, the light is blinking

ok on the other side there is a flap that goes in when the door is shut, push that in but dont cover the little whole where the reciever eye is, then push the door light switch in (at top) and tel me what the light does,

ok ,press in the emitter flapper door to unblock the optics beam, two pulses followed by by a second delay means the optics are faulty, replace the emiter and reciever, if the led is on steady , the optics are working properly, replace the ice maker. here is the emitter.
