Any more suggestions?

I`m still waiting on you to tell me if the icemaker control is turned on when I asked at 11;27 am ?

Customer reply replied 28 days ago
I answered yes, sorry I thought you received it.

I got (YES ) for the ice container on place but no answer for it the ice maker control is turned on .

So if you do not get any lights on the freezer door , that makes me think you have either no voltage to the ice level controls or the are faulty .

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

I have lights on the freezer door, do you mean the display window?
Could something be programmed
wrong ? Where is the ice maker sensor located?

No inside the freezer on the door on the hinge side you have the on /off switch and it should have a red light on it that blinks and if you hold the flapper on the left side the light should go solid .

And no it is not a programming issue.

I have no such light or switch do you have the right model 106.51134210?

And here is the manufactures parts break down for the freezer door .

https://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/K1404006-00008.png
