    I noticed you are the one answering problems with ice makers that won’t dispense ice. I posted a question on the appliance repair forum today as ziprweld1 with a GE Profile Artica. The lights on the panel on front of door works and the ice maker makes ice. The auger will move manually and it doesn’t look like the cup at the back is broken. When dispensing water it is sporadic, but when ice cubes or crushed is used, the light goes dim and nothing happens. Thank you.

    Hello Mary.

    Thank you for the reply to my email I send you yesterday and the model number of your refrigerator. The power to the ice and water dispenser on the door and the auger motor for the ice dispenser inside the freezer is coming from the main control board which is located on the back of the refrigerator. The symptoms you described, especially dim light, are leading to a bad main control board. It comes with the installation instructions and it is not too difficult to replace it yourself.

    The main control board part number WR55X10942

    Good luck.Thank you for stopping by.
    Please keep me posted.

    Hello Tom,

    In order to provide most accurate advice I need the complete model number of the oven.

    Thank you for your question,
    Gene.

    It’s a whirlpool wfg371lvq
    Thanks for your response gene

    Hello Tom,
    Thank you for the model number.

    Remove the Bake burner and check the lighting holes (circled red on the attached picture). If there are only four holes then the Bake burner has to be replaced. If there are eight holes then you have to enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

    The new bake burner part number is 9758078
    You can order the part by clicking on the part number.

    Keep me posted.
    Gene.

    Hi gene. The holes were a number 50 drill so I opened th up to a number 49. It’s doing the same thing , ran and cycled for half hour and then nothing . I do have a spark module on order , do you think that’s it since it’s the next thing to replace that I haven’t?
    Thanks Tom

    Hello Tom,

    You said you already tried to replace the igniter and the gas valve. Do you still have them installed? If not, put them in the place, check the wire between the igniter and the spark module and give it a try. If it will do the same, possible the spark module is the culprit. Just to make sure you did order the correct part, the part number for the spark module is W10331686.

    Good luck,
    Gene.

    Hi gene first of all thanks for your help!!! It did end up being the spark module. It actually showed signs I heat damage by two of the resisters on the PC board
    Again Thanks
    Tom

    You are welcome Tom.
    I’m glad you were able to fix it.

    Thank you for the feed back.
    Gene.
