In Topic: Kenmore 10653642300 Both Ice Maker AND IR Board Bad?

22 February 2015 - 10:17 PM

No completely unrelated. And the price sounds about normal. The ir board is about $100 and the Ice maker is about $165 so your looking at $265 just in parts. Seams fair if they will guarantee the repair for a decent amount of time.

I have seen both go bad at the same time. In fact I had this last week. The solder joints on the receiver iR board crack then the ice maker quits. the plastic tabs in the ice maker module tends to break and the ice maker will get stuck in the wrong position. Another common thing is the coating comes off of the ice maker tray and little chunks of Teflon end up in your ice.

I have had his happen 2 times and both times it was a transformer intermittently failing and breaking down. I had to bring it back to the shop and use it to heat lunch for a week before I definitely got it.

In Topic: GE Monogram, Evap frosted up new model I thought this issues was fixed

My apologies You're correct I did not include enough information and was not specific enough as to my request.  It was an Emergency call on a sunday, my head was throbbing and I used my phone to send the first post.   Thanks for your help. 

 

Yes the pan heater was working, and the thermistor checked good.  I will replace the styrofoam becouse it is saturated with water and likely will not have any R value left in it.  I think I will change the thermistor just to be safe.  

 

Thanks for all the help!
