I've got an older ice maker that will not turn on - model number GI15NDXTS0.  I know the outlet has voltage   but I don't know what to check next.  Does this sound like a faulty control board?

 

Are there any troubleshooting guides for stand alone ice makers?  

 

Thanks for the help.

Gravity drain or drain pump?

The next thing I would suspect is this part or its connection to the board.

Normally, there is a red led lite on the control panel...it will flash if it detects a problem with the bin thermistor connection. Any action from that led when you turn the unit on?

I have zero action whatsoever on the control board. No lights or anything.

Cool ill check out the output voltage...but first I'm gonna have to rewire the wire assembly. Can anyone tell me which color wires go to which terminals on the compressor? Don't ask why I took it off in the first place. Thanks for the input

What a coincidence. I've just been tangling with one of these for the last three days. I won't go into expensive details and I'm not saying this is your problem but an intermittent faulty door/light switch will kill power to the display.

 

That control box is a bastard to take off and put back in. There are 4 blind stainless steel 1/4 inch nut screws holding it up.

Found out that transformer was bad - was burnt to a crisp and actually melted the plastic casing where the control board sits. Ive changed out that part but still no lights or anything. Only getting a soft hum coming from the transformer. Voltage going in is120 and output voltage is 13 from double red to gray wire. No voltage coming out from the yellows ...

Another bad transformer?
