OK... The relay did the trick. The old one was toast.. see pic. BTW: how does this thing work, as it is not a relay that I am familiar with. There seemed to be a disk inside that was burned up and cracked.. is this some sort of bimetalic element that makes or breaks contact?
Thanks for all the help.. you guys were dead on.
Now don't get too smug...
The unit started last night, and is holding temp at the right levels (I've got a thermometer that verifies this.) So are so good.
I reinstalled the icemaker, and it seemed to be pumping out ice last night. However, this AM the ice bin is only partially full. Looks like the icemaker did about 4 or 5 cycles and then stopped. The ice tray is dry. I'd suspect the water valve, but I just replaced this a couple of months ago (another appliancejunk guided tour).
Any ideas? (just one question this time....)
