Ice Maker not working.What replacement unit should I order?
The part number for the icemaker is 2198597. Before replacing icemaker you may want to do a few checks to see if the icemaker is the problem. The first check that you want to make is to see if your emitter board is working. The emitter board is the light on the right side of the freezer compartment that controls icemaker. With door open the light should be flashing. If not then push in on the light switch and the flapper on the opposite side to see if it has a single flash pause then single quick flash and continues to do this. If doing this then it means it is in the harvest mode. When freezer door is open if there is no light and not in harvest mode you will want to replace the emitter board W10757851. If the light flashes with door open then push on the flapper. If the light continues to flash then you will need new emitter board as with the flapper closed the light should be solid. If this checks ok then you would want to pull the icemaker out. Pull the front cover off the icemaker and look at the pins in the center of icemaker to see if the pin is broken. If broken then you would want to replace the icemaker module W10190935. If not then check to see if there is ice in the icemaker. If no ice then you want to check the fill tube to make sure that it is not frozen. Also pull the module off to see if there are any burnt terminals. If so then replace the module. If the unit fill tube is frozen then replace the water valve and clear ice from fill tube.
