Your system uses two optic control boards to tell when the ice bin is full of ice. There is an emitter control board that sends out an infrared beam, and a receiver board that receives the infrared beam. When the ice container fills up with ice, the beam is blocked, and it tells the ice maker to stop filling up with ice. If the ice maker optic control boards fail, it can cause the ice maker to continue to make ice even when it is full of ice or turned off, or it can cause the ice maker to not produce any ice at all.
open the freezer door and look at the status LED on the right hand side. Make sure the ice maker control is turned “ON”. The status LED should blink twice, pause, and then repeat (blink blink…. pause. blink blink… pause).
Next, with the freezer door open, hold down the flapper door on the left hand side to un-block the optics beam. With the optics beam unblocked, the status LED should light up and stay on (not blink). If the status LED continues to blink twice, then you have faulty optic control boards and they will need to be replaced luckily they both come together in a kit.
