We purchased a replacement icemaker from you and it did not make ice for the first 36 hours after installation, then it made 1 tray of ice. Twenty four hours later it made 1 tray of ice about 2 weeks ago. It filled with water and froze but has not dumped since. The light to the right of the door blinks 2 short blinks, pauses, then blinks 2 short blinks. When I hold down the flapper, it continues to blink 2 short blinks with a pause, then 2 more short blinks (there is no change in in the operation whether the flapper is held down or released)
I thought possibly the new icemaker was defective, but before I replace it again, I need your technical advice in case there is another problem.
ANSWER Hello Paul. The most critical issue with icemaker operation is temperature. It needs to be 0° in order for it to work properly. You will need to check and see what the temperature inside the unit is at. Here is a link to help if the temperature is good. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/29618-ice-maker-not-working-kitchenaid.html
