Kenmore 106.71192101 refrigerator icemaker doesn't produce ice

I have a Kenmore 106.71192101 refrigerator and the icemaker stopped working. The ice maker is hooked up to a RO system. I know water is getting to the Valve Solenoid but the water is not going from the water solenoid to the water tube to the actual ice maker so I replaced the Valve Solenoid. That didn't work. There is still no water coming to the water tube. I have checked all the electrical connections. The shut off arm is sort of flimsy so could the problem be within the icemaker itself so that when that arm is down it not calling for water? Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I have included the link to the icemaker diagram. Thank you.

Remove the three screws that hold the icemaker on to the refrigerator and then disconnect the wire harness from the back. Make sure that the refrigerator is unplugged first. Take the front white cover from the front and remove the wire harness from the module. Remove the three screws that hold the module in place and pull it out. With some needle nose pliers squeeze the clip that is on the big plastic sprocket on the front of the module and push it through. Pull the plastic sprocket off the front and you will see black charring in the wheel and also on one or two of the copper prongs underneath. Scrape the soot off of the contacts with a razor knife. Next the prongs that have burned the ends off, bend them up to the same level as the other prongs and put the little bend on the end with your needle nose pliers. Check to make sure that all of the prongs are about the same height. Assemble it together in reverse order and plug the refrigerator in. Now take the 12 gauge wire and strip the ends and connect them to the h and t holes. If the forks go around and water fills the ice tray you have fixed the problem. This is the solution for those who can't afford the hundred dollars to get a new part.

    Samsung refrigerator ice maker


    Many icemakers use a bar or a sensor to shut off water when ice levels are at a maximum. Check to see if it's bent, missing, or pushed down below the ice level, tricking it into thinking there's no ice there.

    Replaced icemaker with new one but still not working


    The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

    The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
    The ice maker is producing ice poorly
    The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

    The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

    First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

    There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs
