Is the emitter blinking? And when you close the flap (after moving your arm out of the way) does the light become steady? If so, more than likely your ir system is ok. If the ir system appears ok, Unplug the fridge, Jump the icemaker to start harvesting. Hold or tape down ir system flapper, plug fridge back in. If the icemaker begins to harvest, then you either have a bad icemaker thermostat (jumping the icemaker bypasses thermostat) or your ice bucket isn't seated properly thus interfering with the ir beam.
