I'm working on the aforementioned unit, and found that the ice maker will fill, start the cycle and dump cubes but once it reaches the vertical 'flex' point in the cycle it stays there and repeatedly tries to continue turning to flex. It will not return to the horizontal 'fill' position until I remove power then reinstate power and push the test cycle button.
Since I'm not well versed in LG units, I have a couple of questions:
Any guidance on where to start on this sort of issue?
Does anyone have a service manual on these?
Can I get parts for the ice maker or is it a complete ice maker replacement?
I looked up parts & found a completely different icemaker shown for this model.
FYI, I am quite sure of the model & serial number taken from the unit. The unit in question has a flex tray icemaker, whereas the parts lists call out a hard-tray ejection-style icemaker with lights on the front panel of the ice maker. Not that this surprises me, because what experience I do have with LG and Samsung is that their manuals leave much to be desired in terms of accuracy and detail. Any help finding the CORRECT icemaker would be appreciated. One post I located listed P/N 5989JA1005D as the replacement ice maker. Can anyone confirm this?
Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
