Question about Maytag MSD2434GE Side by Side Refrigerator
Ice maker not doing anything..I tried to check voltage and got no volts by sticking meter probes in the L and N holes on the face of the ice maker..tried jumping the motor by jumping the T and H holes just in case my voltage check was off..nothing no movement of the wheel so I assume no power to the motor. But if I have no voltage shows when probing holes L-N how do I track down the source of the for no power to the ice maker..I have plugged and unplugged both ends of the four wire harness a couple of times didn't help. I saw no corrosion on the plugs. I would like to probe the plug in the wall of the frig but not sure what two holes of the four hole female plug to use..the wires are a black,a tan, a gr/yl and a white..so to check power/voltage coming out the back of the which two do I probe with my meter..??? The refrigerators works well otherwise lights, cold etc.

SOURCE: ice maker does not work.
This is what I have discovered. When I removed the motor from the control module to test it, it rotated the gear about 30 degrees. I basically plugged it into the wall with jumpers I made from some 14 guage wire to do the test. Then when I put it all back together it started cycling and actually made some ice. However the next morning it failed again. I observed that the arm that flips the ice into the bucket was stopped in the exact same location as when it originally failed. At this point I decided to take apart the control module to look inside. Inside the module you will find a copper circuit that looks like a road map. If you take the gear off you will see circular copper tracks and four copper finger like points that ride on the circular tracks. I noticed that one of the fingers was a little lower that the rest and this caused no contact being made as the gear turned and reached a certain point in the rotation. That would explain why it failed the second time in the same spot and since I activated the motor 30 degrees it was past the spot where it would fail. Now the reason one of the fingers was a little lower was because the copper track had come apart from the board itself causing the dead spot.

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.
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.
