If the optics were bad you would that get ice at all.Maybe put it all back together and see what happens tomorrow afternoon.

Have you ever had bad optics effect the in-door ice system any other way?

Unless I have a plugged fill tub going to the ice maker it seems most of the time a replacement ice maker fixes any problems.
I replace very few water inlet valves and even less optics. How about you?

You can also jump out the optics. Here is a old post showing how.

Pull refrigerator out and on the picture i sent you number# 13 part is a fast disconnect.This is the tube that lets water in ice maker by that black grommet on freezer ceiling.Push down on it and it will come off.Then see if you can blow threw there to check for ice blockage.If you can't  that black grommet is frozen.Next if you know how to make a cheater cord to apply 120 volts to the solenoid on the water valve that has the smaller tubing and connects to that# 13 part This will let water flow in the unconnected disconnect #13 part.Of course up plug refrigerator using cheater cord.If you have no water the valve is bad if the dispenser works.Whats left is icemaker or optic .Most of time its the icemaker if water valve is good Use manual J.W sent to find out.

You can also jump power to the water inlet valve from inside the freezer at the wire harness for the ice maker.
The short wire harness that runs along the side of the ice maker makes for a great jumper wire.

That way I only have to pull the refrigerator out and get down on my knee's after I have tested the water inlet valve and found it to be bad. Luckily that's not very often. ;)

The module head on theses break very easily. With an overkill on low temp, it is very possible this has occurred. Replaced one yesterday where coating had come off.
