Resolved Question:

What color is the power wire to the icemaker in a maytag mzd2768ge?
There are 4 wires there, we need to find the one that will activate when the icemaker fires off a duty cycle.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

heres the wirring diagram for the whole refrigerator, are you trying to cycle this ? trying to start a harvest cycle ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Trying to measure duty cycles, actually. We are leaving a measuring device in place that needs to register every time the icemaker has a harvest cycle.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
okay,okay, the best way to do that would be to go to the ice maker module motor not the inline power which woul be constant. the best way to do that is pop the front white cover off the ice maker and you will see this, the whole that has an M is the motor, heres a backside view of the module if that can trace it from there.

So it looks like, from the wiring diagram, the constant power to the motor is the red wire and the actuation comes down the tan wire?

Neither the tan nor the red wire are registering current right now with an amp clamp, as one would expect.

thats correct. try testing the V on the module to a natural and you should get 120 volts.
