Question about Refrigerators
the water solenoid valve is normally triggered by the ice maker itself. as it turn to harvest the ice, it should trigger the water solenoid valve to start another cycle of ice making. its either a wire harness problem that's why power is not getting to the valve or the triggering switch of the ice maker not sending power to the solenoid. i hope i was able to help you guys...

Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

Your icemaker send the voltage to the water valve as it cycles through its ice drop. Pull your icemaker out, and test the wiring it was plugged into for continuity to the water valve, usually you will only have one colored wire that has continuity. Your white wire is usually your nuetral and as long as both wires are ok, then replace your icemaker or your icemaker module if it has one. You have a very good parts house on Oahu called Reliable Parts, Take your icemaker in if you live on Oahu, or call them with your parts number if you are on the Big Island. I worked on Oahu for 15 years. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

Testimonial: "Thanx very much I hoped it wasn't the whole ice maker, yet I kinda figured, but being on Oahu it's no biggy. Jeff."
The ice control board has failed. They are easy to replace but cost about a $100 usually. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/sxsiceboard.html
