2010 Kenmore Coldspot Ice Maker Not Working ~ Model 106.54789803
I would like help in troubleshooting why the ice maker won't work. Water is ON at the wall, and comes out of the water dispenser.
The light sensor blinks twice when engaged (when I push the left-side flap back (to simulate the door being closed).

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# W10757851

LED blinks when the emitter door is taped back, so it looks it looks like what I need to order. Thank you!

It worked and was very simple to put in. It probably took about 10-15 minutes. Thanks!
