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
The blinking led light can be flashing a code that will indicate the problem. If it flashes 2 times pauses and continues this while the door is open, itâ€™s normal. 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. Iâ€™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 #2198597 will need to be replaced. If no water flows but you can hear a humming noise, the water valve # 4389177 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:
