    Thanks! I'm an idiot. As soon as I posted this I realized that I just wasn't shifting the right hand side far enough to the right. I appreciate you taking the time. I just hope the icemaker works now that it is completely defrosted. We had a repair guy come out- he took it out and never returned.

Not making ice,checked optics ,good ,water valve coil tested good, no restrictionsbut i get no water in tray,also freezer temp is 8 degrees.


OK you mentioned the ice maker had no cubes or not making cubes, try filling tray with water from tap. Let freeze and if the ice drops into ice bin the ice maker is OK. Most times the ice maker thermostat is at fault (pt. 27 in photo) if not cycling. Read OHM's between both coils and they should be very near to same reading, if not replace water control valve=> 4389177 by applying first 120VAC to see if valve opens. If water goes into ice maker this way or OHMs between the two are nearly the same your Ice Maker=>2198597 Ice Maker Assembly may need replaced.
