Serviced a top freezer ice maker.  Old ice maker was making ice but leaking water.   Checked water fill 4 ounces & it shut off.  water leaked out of front of ice maker that was replaced a year ago.    I installed a new I/M shorted the harvest cycle, it filled with water & left.   Called back 3 days later it never harvested ice.   Stuck my finger in mode & mostly water with a little frozen particles.  IR'd surfaces & had 18 degrees.  Ice cream is hard.

 

Put old ice maker back in & next morning ice bucket was full.   Obviously defective ice maker, has any one seen an ice maker where the heater stays on.   Did not feel any heat coming from heater, that is only thing I can think of why no frozen ice.

Had to just be a bad one out of the box. Rare but happens. Did you use a genuine FSP replacement or a generic?

Purchased it from my local appliance supply house.   Price I paid it must be generic, no name on box.    The supply house purchases from 1st Seville.

If it was genuine FSP, it would say it on the box.  Generics will either say nothing or some other brand, like Supco.

Yea its bad enough that some of the factory parts are made wrong or there is a recall on this part or that part that can cause a fire or the instruction are wrong on putting part in.When you look at all these service bulletins and all the makes and models that have them it makes you wonder if these so call engineers know what the hell they are doing and sometimes crazy that if we touch this thing and the house burns down you know who they are  going to blame meaning customers.Is me.I may need more than rehab.More like mental hospital . :wallbash:
