    Default Kenmore 52562100 - ice maker stopped working

    Model Number: 106.52562100
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 6-10 years

    I have a Kenmore 106.52562100 side-by-side. The ice maker has stopped making ice. It does not fill with water.

    One day - I noticed a burning smell in the fridge/freezer - and the pillar (?) - the front part of the divider between the freezer and refrigerator was pretty warm/hot.

    I turned the ice maker switch off for a while (this model has the actual slide switch on the inside right side of the freezer, and sensors). Eventually, the heat and smell went away.

    Now when I turn the ice maker on nothing happens at all.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    EDIT: Checking the optics (though not sure what all should be done): I closed the flap/door on the left side and turned the ice maker on. I didn't see any light from the LED/light. I'm assuming that control board is fried.

    Open the freezer door and check the status LED. If you see 2 Blinks followed by a 1 second delay-repeated: Tape the emitter door back so it doesn’t block the beam between the emitter and receiver. If the LED is on steady: Optics is good. 2 Blinks followed by a 1 second delay: Bad optics Part# 4389102 (Ice Level Control Board 4389102 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy.

    I think that's what it is - bad optics. bad board I assume.

    Thanks for the input
