Whirlpool 2198597 Ice Maker (8-Cube)
Used for 25cf – 27cf models and produces 8-cubes per batch.
Has a specially designed Ice Stripper that allows the ice to slide from the ice maker into the vertical ice container that is located directly in the freezer door.
This ice maker is controlled by an ‘Optic LED Sensor’ that scans the level of ice in the ice container.
When the ice level in the container blocks the led beam (Full of Ice) it (shuts off the ice maker).
When the ice level in the container is below the led beam (Low of Ice) it (turns on the ice maker).
Here are the 4 things to check!
1. (Freezer temp. approx. 0° to 5°)
2. (ice level optics board)
3. (water inlet valve)
4. (ice maker).
Includes Front Cover & Wire Harness.
