I would think it this one.Are you going to do it yourself.This is a good price on the board.

Yes I have to as my home warranty only covers the washer and drier but not the fridge.

You sure that is the correct part number? I was seeing two on this website:

Installed the new main board, I had the fridge unplugged for a few days so I will have to go back after work or tomorrow to see if it's working.

Right as I installed the board the LED came back on. I then cleaned some things around the house, came back (15 mins or so) and the LED was off again.

Is the LED suppose to be on all the time? Or does it light up to begin with and then turns off?  I hope the appliance guy was correct because if not that is another $100 wasted.   

I will just wait and hope for the best. Keep you guys posted!

Still no ice


I looked at the IR sensor with my camera phone (light become visible) and I can barely see the light in there. It is extremely dim and I think that might be why the receiver board does not pick it up. Time to buy the other IR board??

Here is a cheap one I found. I believe this is the emitter board and not the receiver (already bought a new one).

Poured water into the ice maker manually and hours later it cycled, but it did not re-fill back up.

Thinking the water inlet valve might be faulty.

 

Video: See if your Whirlpool Ice maker infrared optics control is working.
