I'm hopefull, when I installed the jumper there was ice in the mold, it had been there all morning, it ejected it right away and refilled with water, it's freezing another batch right now so I'll see how long it takes to eject.

hmmmm.... if it works then maybe the door closing jogs the optics board.. There may a loose wire in the connection or the board itself.

I pulled the jumper out last night at 11.  The ice maker almost filled up the ice bucket this afternoon.  I'm going to order the optic board since the maker is working with this jumper in place.  I couldn't find any loose connects in the harness or on the board.  I'm thinking the mico relay on the board is bad or something else in the optic portion of the board.

I installed the new level control boards Saturday and this thing is making ice faster than ever.  Thanks for all the help.  I believe both the ice maker assembly and the level control had problems.
