Question about Refrigerators
Pop the front cover from the icemaker
Use and insulated wire with about 1/2" of bare wire exposed on the ends to jump between the T and H holes in the module.
This will start a cycle. Remove the wires after 5 seconds and let the icemaker run it's cycle.
Listen for the water valve to open. It should open for about 7 seconds just before the end of the cycle.
If it does not open, jump between the L and V holes in the module.
This puts power to the water valve, bypassing the switches in the I/M.
If you still have no water and the fill tube from the valve to the icemaker is not frozen, then you probably need a valve.
If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can check it a little more precise by checking for voltage to the valve while the icemaker cycles.
Post back if you have questions.
