I'm sending you some information about this type of icemaker and also pictures with instructions on removing this icemaker.

The icemaker in this model can stop working for a few reasons. Some are listed below:

The icemaker itself can fail

The water valve may not open

The optic boards can fail

The fill tube can freeze up

Freezer temperature not cold enough

First check the blinking red light. If it flashes 2 times pauses and continues this while the door is open, it’s normal. If it's not blinking or blinks 4 times the optic boards will probably need to be replaced. To check this icemaker, the optic board on the right side will need to be accessed.

First disconnect power from the unit

. Now remove the 3 screws holding the cover in place and you will see the board on the back side (see picture). Disconnect the wire harness and place a well insulated jumper between the black and black/white wires (not the white wire). Now the icemaker will need to be lowered to access the front module. I’m sending pictures with instructions to remove the icemaker. Pull the front cover off to access the module and you will see some test terminals (see picture). Use a well insulated jumper and place it between the L - V terminals. Reconnect power to the unit and with both jumpers in place, water should now flow to the icemaker (be prepared to catch water from the fill tube). If water does flow, the icemaker will need to be replaced. If no water flows but you can hear a humming noise, the water valve will need to be replaced. If nothing at all happens, some voltage checks will need to be made.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem or doing any voltage checks yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services

. If you need more assistance additional details will be needed.

Safety Notice

: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
