I have the refrigerator below and I think its possessed. In march of last year the ice maker stopped working. After closer inspection the gear under the side cover had snapped off and burned up. I got a used replacement icemaker from a friend who had a 2nd fridge with no water connection and put it in and it did not fix it. I got frustrated and left it alone for like 6 months.
Then one day out of the blue it started working all of a sudden. However, I had put something back together wrong because it was dumping ice all over the bottom of the freezer. Only about half of it was going in the door box. I dealt with that for the last 6 months and now it has stopped making ice again.
I pulled the ice maker out and the white fingers that turn to push the cubes out after the tray heats are pointing straight down and frozen into half cubes. I pulled it out again to thaw it and came here immediately. The infrared sensor is flashing two times, pause, two times, pause over and over. Any ideas?
Edit: I am looking to get the icemaker working again and I am also looking for pictures of one assembled so I can see what I put together wrong. I know it has to be some spring or plastic piece.
