Looking for assistance here. My Electrolux, french door, has quit making ICE and is out of warranty. I live in a remote rural region. To have someone come out and fix this will be about 4 hours in labor for driving alone. It's hard to cost justify a technician to come and look at this only to order parts and come out again. $700 later I might have this thing work again. I have the mechanical and electrical aptitude to work on this myself but I need to know what parts to order.
My problems started out when the ice maker would just arbitrarily stop making ice. The repair technician that came out the three times before (under warranty) eventually told me to just shut the icemaker off, and then turn it back on and it would start making ice again. This worked for the last three or four months but recently it started making a ticking sound. I can see the ice maker tray moving from the resting postion at the right, down to the left, gets stuck, clicks, falls back 1/4", moves slightly to the left, clicks, falls back again, etc., and does this for about 1 minute or more until it performs what looks like a fault reset, which then moves the ice maker tray back and up to the right at-rest position, heats up, and then cools down and sits for about an hour, only to repeat the same process, relentlessly. Is there a PDF of the ice maker with part numbers available? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
