Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
My Kenmore 106.56542400 is not making ice, wont start harvest cycle when jumpering T and H.
Tried removing ice maker and plugging to 110 and tuns OK.
Measuring voltage to ice maker and won´t get any.
Why could be the reason to not having 110V to the ice maker??
it has an infrared beam, so on both side walls has an eye. Also on the right side there is an on/off switch.
Apparently the eyes work Ok because pilot light blinks when the door is open and is solid when I move the plastic arm that cuts the beam.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Here is what the manual says:
3. Icer-ette freezes but water does not come into mold; no ice production.
3A. Nonfunctioning water valve assembly. 3A. Clean or replace solenoid valve assembly.
3B. Mold heater assembly. 3B. Contact Raritan Technical Support.
3C. Water supply turned off. 3C. Provide pressurized water.
3D. Icemaker module. 3D. Replace icemaker module.
3E. Cold control. 3E. Replace cold control.
3F. Bad wiring harness plug contacts. 3F. Contact Raritan Technical Support.*
Although this is for troubleshooting non optical sensor refrigerators:
The troubleshooting procedures for cycling the unit are exactly the same,
The ice maker module part number for the 120V unit is PN 628366 (do a net search for this part number and save yourslef a bumch of money if you fetermine your moduleis bad) You start the harvest cycle by removing the front cover and then jumpering test points T to H. The white dial will begin to move if there is power to the module. Remove the jumper when the sweep arm reaches 5" o'clock and let the ice maker automatically cycle. It should harvest, and fill in on complete turn of the white dial. If it does not fill you probably have a water supply or water valve problem. There is an inline input power fuse for the ice maker. Power should come in via the red wire.
Mind you the ice maker has an internal thermostat behind the module assy that has to reach 15 deg F to start the harvest cycle. When you jumper T to H you are bypassing the thermostat. If the thermostat fails or the unit does not reach 15 deg F then the harvest cycle will never begin.
