Those dang electronic ice makers ain't worth the time it took to tell it. Everyone I have ever seen just needed to be replaced. I don't know of anyone who has sucessfully fixed one. This ice maker has a thermister in it that can be replaced they tell me but I have not had any luck at all fixing one of these . I have one sitting on my workbench right now. I took it apart and it has an electronic board in it. One of these other guys might know something I don't but I beleive you are gonna need to buy a new one bottom line.
