Update on my problem 1.When I turn on my icemaker is goes through a full cycle 2. The cutting grid is warm ready to cut - working fine-
Problem starts to occur - No water. 3. When in the icemaker calls for water to circulate over the freezing plate to begin the water freezing process - No water circulates over the freezing plate. What parts do I need ? a. control board b. water pump c. solenoid. Where should I start ????
Answer Randy, As I understand this, the icemaker does not fill the reservoir at the start of the cycle, so the unit does not fill and circulate the water over the chill plate to make cubes, correct ? The first place to start, make sure there is water supplied to the fill valve, and the fill valve screen is not clogged with debris, Then run the Diagnostic/test Mode, "Entering and Navigating — Manual Diagnostics
• Turn the product on. Within 10 seconds of Power On, press and hold the On and the Clean buttons. Release both buttons when
all user interface LEDs begin to flash. • Within 5 seconds of all LEDs fl ashing, push any other button on the user interface. This
begins manual diagnostics. • If no button is pressed within 5 seconds, the product goes into the automatic diagnostic mode used at the assembly plant. Each component is cycled for 5 seconds. • The Service button (or Off button on some models) is used to advance through each step. • To exit manual diagnostics, press the Power button (or On button on some models).These errors will occur at any time during normal operation if a thermistor fails. 2 Blinks — Service Light is blinking twice in repeating intervals – This signifies a bin thermistor
failure. Check that the bin thermistor is plugged in to the control box. Check that the bin thermistor is not open or shorted. Replace the thermistor if it is open or shorted. 3 Blinks — Service Light is blinking three times in repeating intervals – This signifies a harvest
failure. Check that the evaporator thermistor is connected to the sealed system tubing. If the thermistor is plugged in, ensure that it is fully connected to the control box. (The ice maker will operate on a timed cycle if the evaporator thermistor is unplugged.) Check the resistance of the thermistor. If the thermistor checks good, then look for a frost pattern on the evaporator plate.The unit may be low on refrigerant." this will give you and us a better idea of what may be the problem. Thanks

My ice make makes a load noise during the process of making the ice. It is quiet when the water is filling up the container then it gets loud when the water is pumped over the freezing tray. Is the problem a pump barring?
Based on the description it does sound like the pump bearings on the unit may be bad and the pump would need to be replaced. If the noise is not coming from inside the unit then you would want to check the condenser fan motor.
