2008 Whirlpool refrig ice maker won't cycle


I've run the LED diagnostics...solid red for 5 seconds. So all should be fine. I can jump the T and H connections and it will cycle once, but that's it. The I/M stalls at the start position and the only way to get it to cycle it to jump the T/H again. I replaced the motor and everything looks fine per visual inspection. Surely I'm missing something simple. Thanks for any help!!

Ia may have had a similar problem. Mine would fill freeze but not dump. I'd hit the reset button, it would dump but not do it on its own. I finally after replacing the whole assembly with no results, took the panels off of the inside of the freezer. What I found was ice had built up around all the wiring, and connections. I defrosted everything completely and dried it out w a towel and finally it worked like .

I fixed it by replacing the assembly. $120. Still can't figure out what was wrong with the old one.

if it worked when you jumped t&h then you had a bad thermostat. T&h terminals are the thermostat.
