The unit received a 220V power surge about two was ago. Everything survived except ice making capability. The auger and cold water dispenser work, but the ice tray does not empty. What parts most likely are damaged from the surge?
Thanks

I believe this is the ice maker that you can cycle it by: turning it off for 30 seconds, turn it back on, and within the first 15 seconds push the white lever underneath in 3 times only. It should cycle around and fill. If not I think the ice maker is bad. Its hard to tell for us not being there because the control boards can develop problems from power surges as well. Maybe some more experienced techs can gve some input. Make sure you freezer temps are correct as well. Somewhere around 0 is correct plus or minus 5 degrees I believe.

I have worked on this some more and noticed that the LED indicator light on the Icemaker is not showing on, so I suspect that there is no power reaching the Icemaker. New question is, where does the power come from? Is it through the motherboard or direct from the line cord? Do you have a circuit diagram?
