2198597 (8-cube) Ice Maker & WPW10190961 (5-Cube) Ice Maker

These 2 Different Ice Makers Are Used On Models That Have The Ice Dispenser Located In The Freezer Door!

There Are 3 Main Components That Work In Conjunction With Each Other In Order For These Types Of Ice Makers To Produce Ice!

1) Water Solenoid Valve

(Receives The Start & Stop Signal From The Ice Maker When To Allow Water To Fill The Ice Maker)

2) Ice Maker Control Boards Part Number W10757851 – 4389102

(This Component Tells The Ice Maker If The Ice Bin Is Full Or Not), Meaning, If Ice Bin Is Full – The Red Led Beam Will Be Blocked By The Ice Therefore Not Letting The Ice Maker Cycle Any Ice To Be Harvested Until The Red LED Beam is Clear (Ice Is Lower Than The Beam).
2a) A Good Ice Maker Control Board
Is Indicated By A Steady Red Beam When You Open The Freezer Door And Hold The Flipper On The Left Side Wall In):
If You Get A (Blink – Blink – Pause – Blink – Blink – Pause ) Continuously, It Means The Optics Boards Should Be Replaced!

3) Basic Ice Maker Theory:

Water In Ice Maker Cavities Is Frozen By Freezer Temp. When Ice Maker Reaches Desired Temp. (Usually Between 0 and 5 Degrees F.) The Thermostat Then Cycles The Heater & Motor To Loosen The Ice In The Mold Cavities and Rotate The Rake To Dump The Ice Into The Bin Followed By Signaling The Water Solenoid Valve To Fill The Ice Maker Cavities With Water. This Completes The Cycle.
