Thank you for your question. I know it's disappointing when the icemaker stops working. The information you have received from Joseph is correct except, to cycle this icemaker, the on/off switch has to be pressed and held for approx. 15 seconds. If it still won't cycle, the icemaker # 5303918344 will need to be replaced. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thanx to all you folks, we're back together!! Especially the diagrams, thanx Jimmy. Toughest part was getting the water line in and out with 72 year old hands and fingers. Couldn't have made it without my wife Gail who is always in up to her shoulders with me. Don't see Scott on this page, but thanx to you also. Great community!!! ChucknGail

I'm sorry you are having this problem. The optic boards do appear to be ok, based on the information listed. Now disconnect power to the refrigerator. To check this icemaker, slide it out, so the front cover can be removed, to access some test terminals. There is a clip located on the back right corner of the icemaker that will need to be removed, to slide the icemaker out. There will be a screw at the bottom of the clip holding it. I�m sending a picture with instructions to remove this clip. With the clip removed, slide the icemaker out and remove the front cover. You will now see the test terminals, which are marked (see picture). Now remove the 3 screws holding the receiver board on the right side and disconnect the harness from the board. Place a jumper between the black and black/white wires (see picture). Now use a second jumper and place it between the L � V terminals on the module. Reconnect the power 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 # 2198678 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. These parts are available at SearsPartsDirect . I hope this will help you.

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.

I did the test proceedure as described above. Water flowed, indicating a bad ice maker. I have ordered a replacement ice maker ($185 with tax and shipping - Ouch!). It will arrive in about a week. This answer was very clear and enabled me to identify the bad component. Thanks much. Very Good.

Found that this model doesn't have screws, but there are 2 slots to use a small screwdriver and lift the cover to remove. Haven't gotten at it yet, but should be easy enough from there (he says with optomism)!! Thanx for your answer. Chuck L
