Sounds like its not opening if your not getting water up to the ice maker
This shows the water valve and how to test for continuity. I have seen these fail a few times over the years
Before you accept that phone call. Do you have a place in front of fridge to get water?
Hows the pressure on that can you get good steady flow of water through that?
alright (the tube that goes into the ice maker actually in the freezer section) Are you sure this is clear?
Im really leaning towards this being the issue or the water inlet valve
350 OHMS should be fine for water valve.....
Man im striking out with really getting into details. Im searching for something you can watch to understand so its easier..... hang tight.
This is a another great video I have bookmarked. Fast forward to around the 5minute mark, You can run some ohm tests here and let me know what you get :-)
Check on the timer of the icemaker ( is this new as well)
L terminal and M terminal tell me the resistance
do you see that anywhere on this model. I wanna check the motor of the timer
ok no worries. Im sorry this is taking some time/ Im doing my best without being in front of it
Eh, I mean i guess for quick hit it shouldnt hurt as long as its rated for 120v and you also make sure its separted from everything else.
Hey man ill be on later tonight taking wife out to a show. Ill touch base tonight
Should be ok but without being in front I can't confirm thats a ok thing to do, Sorry man we had theater tickets with the wife
Give me a couple minuets and ill switch from my phone to computer so i can opt out
I just checked the parts list I see nothing on here about a control board? when you replaced the ice maker was there any power connection you had to hook up
I only see water inlet valve, Hose and actual ice maker as parts listed for sale, you sure you got the correct one and everything
well man im gonna opt out then..... Im leaning towards that being the problem but....
ill keep an eye on this conversation.
No one picked it up yet?
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am APPLIANCE GURU a very experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.
Please allow time for me to respond, sometimes I get the questions or responses late so please be patient as I have no control over the site issues. NOTE, I have nothing to do with your payment to the site and did not receive that money.
I am a different tech, on that unit if the icemaker rotates when pushing the test button and you can see it rotate and it does not ever fill with water you either have a bad fill valve solenoid for the icemaker, a bad main board that controls the icemaker or the fill line to the icemaker is frozen. If you can pour a glass of water in the modl and see if it makes the ice and dumps. If it does then you may want to defrost the unit to rule out a frozen fill line in the inner wall. If you do that and it still does not fill or make ice, you need to test the fill solenoid on the unit with an ohm meter and replace it if it reads open and if it reads good replace the main board. Often the cheap relays they use on the board go bad causing that issue.
The only way I receive any credit at all for my time is by you selecting a STAR USING THE 5 STAR or VOTING RATING SYSTEM AT THE TOP OF YOUR PAGE before you leave for me so please make sure you are rating me not another tech. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating.

The main board is located behind the unit. There is a square cover panel that hides it, remove that and it is the larger of the two boards.
Behind the refrigerator itself on the back wall standing behind the unit.
So now it makes ice but no water?
Have you replaced the icemaker?
What are the freezer actual temps?
OK that could be the issue it should be 0 at least 6 degrees it may not trip to harvest can you see if it will pull closer to 0 and see what happens.
