The ice maker on my Ge refrigerator  is possessed!! I had replaced the ice maker flapper door and closer spring a while back due to frost build up and things worked fine for a few months. Then one morning the door started to open and close by itself, over and over. It would open for a few seconds then close. Do this maybe 5-10 times then be fine for a few minutes. Then out of the blue it would do it again. The door might stay open for one second or 15 seconds before closing. The solenoid was getting pretty hot from power to it for extended periods. I replaced the solenoid and door micro switch which is operated by  ice door lever.  I removed the button cover and made sure the lever was not sticking causing the problem. When the  ice door solenoid is powered holding open the flapper, and I open the freezer door, then push the ice door  switch, a solenoid next to the auger motor is powered and ice door remains powered.  If I then push the middle switch at the top of the Freezer opening the auger runs. When I release the freezer opening switch the auger stops and when I release the ice door lever the solenoid in the freezer stops, but the solenoid in the door stays powered.

 Any ideas? Not having a schematic I am not sure where the ice door solenoid gets its power.

The tech sheet is tucked behind or in the toe grill. It'll have a wiring diagram in it. Would be good to post here. But it do indeed sound like that timer board is veese badden, as they say in Lower Slabovia.

Well I can give the bad news first or wait and give the bad news after I give the other bad news.
Ok heres the first bad news. I bought the fridg used off ebay, and it came with no toe kick, thus no schemtic.
Second bad news, I'm not sure where to find the timer board. Theres no board in or on the area of the freezer ice door. Just a set of wires comming into the freezer ice door opening from the bottom that has a plug that goes to the solonoid, mirco switch and heater coil. And I am not seeing anything around the manual timer over head. Where would the board be located? There needs to be something that powers the door solonoid as it would stay open for a second or two after the ice door switch was released.

Oh my Shame!!! I got to thinking about your answer. So at 4 am I got out of bed, took the ice door off the the freezer and took it apart, again. And guess what, I found a electronic board. It must be the famous timer board you mentioned. Forgive me, how could I have doubted your wisdom.....
I will replace it and let you know of the fix.
Again thanks.
