I would hit "like" on that Kurt, but I hate being called Danny.  :rocker:

If it's not glowing, basic basics: is it getting voltage? If not, where is it supposed to get its voltage from?

These emitter based guys can drive you crazy. 

 

Here's my suggestion:

 

Kill power.

 

Remove the ice maker from the wire harness

 

Wait a few minutes.

 

Restore power.

 

Open the door.

 

If the emitter and receiver board are working correctly, you should see a sequence of rapid flashes (I think it's 3 flashes) indicating the emitter can't find an ice maker.  If you're still not seeing any lights, you probably have a bad emitter, but to be sure of that, you need to disconnect the right hand side board and verify 120 VAC coming into the black wire.

"We aren't touching this mess." That's where I laughed. Or in other words:

In Topic: Amana LWA50AW -- belt and idler problems

18 August 2014 - 09:37 AM

Realized I'd never finished the story.  Went back out, replaced the idler pulley and the spring to go along with the new belt.  The manual implies that the idler arm's spring is easily overstretched.  Put the unit into spin, no burning smell, good performance.
