I have a Kenmore 106.56662500 side by side. The ice maker is not filling at all. I pulled the ice-maker module out and checked for ice on the black rubber fill tube. It seemed clear. What else can I check? Should I check the connector for power? if so, how?

You will need to check your water valve on the fridge itself if it has a double valve. if it has a single valve and the water comes out of dispenser in the door then it is probably going to be the ice maker itself.

You're ice maker is located on the left hand side of the freezer, if I'm correct. Look to the back of the freezer slightly above the ice maker and you will see what they call the fill tube. Chances are ice has formed inside and when the ice maker goes to fill water sprays instead of flows out. In some models you can take the fill tube out from the back by removing two screws that hold it in, located at the upper right side if your behind it, and some you may have to pull out from inside.
could have a bad water valve,next time send model number.on some of the ice makers you can pop off the white cover and on the right hand side you'll see to holes close together,you can jump out the ice maker to see if the water valve is sending up enough water to fill the ice maker,stick the end of the wire in each hole,you'll see the middle part start turning,when the theeth of the ice maker are at 9 oclock pull the wire out and watch to see the ice maker fill.if it doesn't fill and you hear the water valve turn on the valve is bad and has to be changed out.let me know how you make out
1.Bad water valve located in the back bottom of refrigerator.
2. Frozen fill tube going into back of ice maker. (common problem)
3. Ice maker not cycling. Pour water into ice maker cavity until near filled.
Wait a few hours and see if it dumps.
4.In rare cases, the switch in the ice maker body fails. Ice maker will cycle but not tell water valve to refill.
The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze
Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.
there is a micro switch in the ice maker motor module that shuts power off to the ice-maker water valve when the ice maker is full but i rarely see them go bad this is the easy way to deal with it pull the unit out unplug both the valves and turn the water on a sec if its running in the ice maker with the valves are unplugged then replace the valves if its not replace the ice-maker motor module
A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.
