HI. There are only two areas of concern here. The main control board routes power to the inlet valve. If the valve circuits are open, the power will not be accepted, thus, inducing a non operational valve assembly. Now; if the valve test reveals that the valve, itself, is ok, this will lead to a failed main control board(power relay failure).

To isolate the issue, you will need to inspect the inlet valve. Follow my procedure below to isolate the issue.(You will need a multimeter for the electrical section of the test)


Inlet Test:

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink or near the rear wall that your unit is placed). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

NOTE_ If the inlet assembly passes this test: Replace the main control board.(PCB)

I had the same issue with my frig. I read on line where Someone open the freezer and ran a hair dryer in it. So I tried it I turned off the water draned the water side out left my door open while I had the hair dryer running for a half hour then turned the water back on and sure enough after the line unfroze and it started making ice. there was a little blurb on the freezer about how much water presure was needed. I found this information just by doing a google search on my model frig.

Kenmore Coldspot Model 70162990 - not making ice


You've either got a bad timer on the ice maker or the water valve is defective. You need to verify that the timer is moving first. If it isn't try pushing in on the dial on the end of the ice maker. It is under the white square cover at the end of the ice maker, usually towards the door, but in some units it points to the left side wall. If it begins to run when you do that, then the timer is broken. If not then I would say that the valve is defective.
