Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

First off does this model have a water filter if so...and if it is old and or full of filtered material the water will not dispense anywhere.
Ok...the way to test for power is obviously with meter you can easily check the solenoid leading to the inside of the frig by exposing where the connectors attach to the solenoid...but do not remove them completely you should have a continual 110/120 v supply...someone at the front of the unit can depress the dispenser and you will hear the solenoid activate...if it does not...the same should apply for the ice maker solenoid...unless it is activated by the timer (electrically) and not mechanically (which it usually is) if you are getting voltage to both of these....and you have voltage to the primary solenoid...(which you may not) if you do not have a filter...and both of the other valves stopped working at the same time..(which would be rare). Then there may be an electrical problem in general. Also you can check to see if the firdge is cold enough to make ice by manually filling the Ice maker with water...it should freeze in under 4 hours and dump the ice also...if it does...them it lies in an electrical problem in general or electrical problem to the primary solenoid. Also do you have hard water....as it may be posible for calcium deposits to accumulate at the valve inlets...and often there are tiny screens in place here also. Check for water continuity at the valves if possible.
I hope this helps....good luck and get back to me and we can go from what you find out.....please rate me.... the Fang

Ice maker must be on(arm up) .If the ice maker is turning and not getting water probably the solenoid valve is bad or the line between the valve and the ice maker is broken or frozen, if its frozen the valve is leaking and needs to be replace.For the ice maker to work the freezer must be working fine (freezing )But if everything is ok and the ice maker still dead(not turning) check if it's plugged in,right behind it and if this is ok the ice maker inside board is bad ,but replacing it is probably better to get a new one.

Click here to go to Sears website. I have searched for this valve and found it to be about $38. Is this what you wish to know?
If you are unsatisfied, please post a comment before rating this solution.

Have you had the chance to check the fill tube to the ice maker, if that fill tube is frozen, not water will enter the ice maker.
Check there and get back to me, I have other tests we check the system for if needed.
Thanks for your time
