Alright so another thread about this subject. Maybe you guys can help me out.
I bought a home recently that came with appliances. The fridge is a nice whirpool WSF26C2EXF01. Here is the story, when I bought the home there was obviously no power to the building, I opened the fridge and dumped out the bucket of ice so that it would not melt and make a mess while I got power turned on (ice maker was working with the previous owner as there was ice in the maker and the inspector checked all the appliances). When I got the power turned on the ice maker was now not working at all.
I have replaced the ice maker itself ($200) and still nothing. I have checked the IR sensor and it seems to work on and off. Constant red LED on is good, Flashing means that it should not be making ice from what I've been reading.
I will unplug the fridge, wait a few minutes and plug it back in and the IR checks out. I will come back around 15 minutes later and the IR sensor LED is not even turned on
or is that normal?
I have also bought the inlet valves (two together, one red one green I believe) but I have not even opened the box because I don't want to waste another $85 if that is not the problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
