My icemaker quit making ice. I replaced the icemaker. Still would not make ice. I found this website and checked dcv on ice level emitter and receiver. I get 14vdc on J1-1 to J1-3 and J1-3 to J1-4 on the receiver. I get nothing on emitter j1-1 to J1-3. I replaced the emitter and still get nothing. I even checked for voltage on the receiver J1-4 to J1-6 and got nothing. Could my controller (W10864261) be bad?

The numbers do not completely light up when I am doing any sequence test and the sequence tests start at 11 not 01 as I think it should. Or could it be the main control board. Or could it be something else or possibly it is just me. Thanks for any help

J1-1 to J1-3 and J1-3 to J1-4 on the receiver.
Try J1-4 to J1-6. Sounds like a bad receiver board.

I forgot to mention that I have also changed the receiver. Both of the receivers could be bad though.

Thanks, Cattleman77

voltage across J1-4 and J1-6 is zero vdc. J1-1 to J1-3 and J1-3 to J1-4 is actually 13.74 vdc not 14vdc

I downloaded 106.51133210 from this site and it shows j1-3 to J1-4 at 14vdc. I do get 13.74 vdc across those 2 connections. I guess I must have used the wrong picture. I will make a copy of the one you posted.

Thanks, Cattleman77

Your model is not a Kenmore 106.51133210

Go by Ricks diagram in post #2.:)

I'm also attaching your tech. data sheet below.
