No 110 volt to icemaker

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??
thanks

Additional info:
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.

Kenmore WR30X0318 Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice


The ice maker uses a internal thermostat that starts the cycle of dropping the ice and refilling with tap water. If your water control valve works filling the ice maker then the problem is the ice maker itself that will need replaced. Unfortuantly the ice maker you have has no rebuildable parts and will need to be replace with a=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Often the reason ice makers slow or stop ice production is because the freezer compartment has gradually warmed up above 17 Deg F and the ice maker thermostat will not start an ice harvest cycle. What causes this gradual warming is usually the result of either an evaporator fan running slow or an automatic defrost circuit problem caused by a fault defrost timer/control defrost heating element or defrost thermostat / thermistor.
You can use this manual to troubleshoot the ice maker:
http://applianceassistant.com/pdf/inDoorIceSystem.pdf
or
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf
Note that jumpering T to H requires the ice maker thermostat to sense a termp of 14 - 16 Deg F for the ice harvest cycle to start. If by jumpering T - H under the ice maker front cover the ice maker does not cycle then either the freezer compartment is too warm or the ice maker thermostat is bad.
If it cycles and does not add water... then the inlet water valve solenoid has failed or the ice maker module is not supplying power to the inlet water valve.

My icemaker will get cold but wont make ice.


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:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34
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.

No ice


You will need to check if water is actually in the tray which would be ice if temperature is below 32 degrees. If you can feel ice then it is making ice but not harvesting it. you can advance the timer using a jumper wire. Pull the front cover off and make a 5" jumper with a 1/2" stripped on both ends. Place the jumper between T and U; They are located at right lower corner. Hold jumper in place as the gear begins to move you will hear a click, remove jumper and watch as the ice is harvested. Sometimes this will fix it. If it doesn't advance then you can just replace the head or the part inside.

Icemaker diagnostics


Use an insulated piece of wire , with both ends stripped about 1/2 " . Insert on end into the T hole , and the other into the H hole . This will start the cycling process for the ice maker (bypasses the thermostat) and makes the motor run . Only need to start the motor and then remove the wire and let it go on its own . Do not keep the wire in the test holes .

Ice maker does not work. Water does not full the cubes yet I checked the back and the water line is attached. I can still get water from the door just will not make ice cubes,


You would need a volt meter to narrow waht component has failed. It sounds like you have a sxs unit with ice and water in the door. There is a double valve in the back of the unit (if it's a GE Built Kenmore -it may have a double -double inlet valve). You would need to hook up your volt meter to the inlet valve side for the Ice maker. This is where the 1/4" tubing is going into the valve. Next you need to know haow to harves the Ice maker. Most newer Ice makers have an module in it. ther is a jumper sequence that you need to do in order to get the ice maker to harvest maually. Once the IM is harvesting, note the voltage at the valve - this is not a constant voltage- you would have to wait until the IM is in the cycle where it energizes an internal switch to send 120v to the water valve.. If you are getting 120 V and No water, then you have a bad valve assembly

Icemaker won´t work


if you got 110 volts to ice maker. try jumping out the T & H ( a small insulated copperwire) . this will cause the ice maker cycle, if this does nothing replace the ice maker.(entire assy cheaper then the parts). remeber you might have to shut the door switch to get the 110v. some machines run the power through light switch

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
