Question about Refrigerators
Hi. Sounds as if you are some what familiar with using a meter for testing circuits. Disconnect at least one lead from the water valve coil and Read across the coil checking for resistance. I should read less than 10 Ohms.
From what I read about you only having 10 volts you have a voltage issue as the coil voltage should read in this range 115 / 120 VAC. The 120 VAC is controlled by an actuation arm that is actuated by a cam lobe inside the icemaker front cover. If the actuating arm is bent or broken the icemaker will cycle but the water valve will never be activated with 120VAC to energize the coil for the duration of the icemaker fill cycle.
If your up to it you can make your own test cord from an old extension or power cord with two female bayonet terminal ends and verify the water valve operation.
Connect the locally made by you test cord female terminals to the water valve and BRIEFLY plug in the cord. The water valve should open when you plug in the cord and shut off when you unplug the test cord.
