My ice mold broke which caused clumps of ice in which my thermistor got stuck in and when the auger turned on it broke thermistor wires. when this happened the entire refrigerator lost power. If I replace the ice maker will that fix it or is there an issue with the control board as well. thanks
ANSWER Hello Stephen,
It is possible for the unit to have issues from the icemaker failure but it appears that the dispense board is the one that would be giving the trouble. Since it could also have an issue back to the main board, you should check for voltage to the dispense board before replacing the main board. If the voltage is leaving the main board 242115239 and going into the dispense board 241973711, replacing the icemaker and the dispense board will cure the issue. If voltage is not leaving the main board to the dispense board, it will most likely take both boards and the icemaker 243297603 to correct the issue.
