I thought that i read somewhere like in a service flash that the freezer light could give you a false reading with the optics flashing twice can anybody confirm this.Then you would kind of block the freezer light to get a accurate reading of the optics.

20 degrees will freeze food but won't help with ice production. Put a thermometer in the freezer. Part of diagnosing is to eliminate potential problems so you can move on to other things. I have replaced the thermostat in the ice maker for this problem. In my experience the optics are rarely the problem.
