ok can you find a piece of wire about four inches long and strip each end back around 3/4" ? if so stick the wire in holes marked T and H this will start the cycle,they are at the 5 o clock position, after 3 seconds remove the wire, if it doesn't start then the module is bad, heres a link to the part, its $70.00, most people replace the whole ice maker instead,Part 1857its a little more money, $115.00 but you know it will work, thanks Bryan
