Question about Electrical Supplies
I have a whirlpool French door ref and the ice maker is not working.
You need the repair or service manual- We can help but we do not fix and repair items via fixya, it also sound like you have no idea what your doing (with respect). Here on the site we will not advise you to service a non user serviceable item. If you do on your own we will help but your question is not really asking for help but rather direction. You took it apart and thats makes it so hard to keep up with the original problem. Please seek help on a more interactive place geared toward repairs. We are repeatedly asked to repair items via this site and thats just not while we are here. Keeping in mind this service is free and intended for quick fixes not extensive repairs. Were still willing to help tho.

J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

SOURCE: Blinking display
jph, this is a classic symptom of the high voltage board failure. What board did you replace? The high voltage board is the one on the back side of the refer, left hand side. Catriver.

if you keep your hands out of the little beam slot on the paddel that is located on the left of the freezer and push it in the beam should shoot across to the reciever on the right and the light should stay on constant, that is if you have the switch on the right side turned on.
if it is turned on and the paddel is depressed and the light is still blinking the you need a beam kit part number 4389102

The the rubber fill spout was frozen with ice. Also the reservoir that acts as a funnel for the fill spout was frozen with ice. Cleared the ice and all works fine!

does it stop working?or stopped vibrating?if the vibration stopped then wire connecting to the rotating motor is detached this is the common problem with dual shock because of constant vibration.Solution is to open the controller and connect the loose wire,dust is also a big factor if buttons are already not responding so try also to remove accumulated dust on the button touch board.
