The unit stop making ice, replaced the water value (W010408179) with no success., or does it take several hours for the unit to start making ice. I was also wondering if the ice maker control switch could be malfunctioning. The red indicator light is blinking, it appears to blink twice with a pause, and blink twice again. Thanks for any help you can provide.
ANSWER Hello Ron,
With freezer door open you will want to check the sensor light. Close the flapper without the hole being blocked and if the sensor light continues to flash then you will need to replace the emitter board W10757851. If it stays on solid red it is good. If this is the case then pull the icemaker and look for a broken pin in the center of the large gear. If the pin is not broken then you will want to pull the module off and check for burn marks on the back of the module. If there are burn marks you will want to replace icemaker 2198597. If the pin in the gear is broken you will want to replace the icemodule W10190935.
