Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

On that model it has a fan that pulls cold air from the freezer section to the ice make box if the fan is not running it will not get cold enough in the ice maker box for the ice maker to start a cycle. You need to check and see if that fan is running which it sounds like its not. The video below shows how to access and replace the fan:

Here is the replacement fan:

I do not get any power reading between the H and N terminal on the ice maker. Does the main circuit board supply power to the ice maker?

Yes there is a thermal fuse in the wiring harness of the ice maker but ya the power is supplied from the board at position p3-4 see wiring diagram below:

click here for wiring diagram

If the ice maker is not getting voltage check the thermal fuse in the wiring harness first if its good then the board is not sending voltage.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ice maker is new. New wiring harness with new thermal fuse

Ok then the board is bad or a bad wire from board to ice maker if there is no voltage
