Question about Refrigerators
Try this; remove the front cover off the icemaker. On the front of the icemaker you should see holes marked with letters. Make a jumper wire about six inches long skin it about ½ inch on each end (make sure the wire is well insulated). Place one end of the wire in the hole marked L and the other in the hole marked V. This should energize the water valve and run water. Once the water starts running pull the jumper wire out, the water should stop when you pull the wire out. If the water continues to run after you remove the jumper wire the water valve is bad. If the water stops when you pull the wire out, repeat the test. If the water stops each time you remove the wire the motor module is bad.
Recheck the water inlet valve is it for your unit or bit small or big or compatible or cracked valve. Check. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Thanks for using FixYa. If the water supply valve has already been checked and replaced for a good water flow and still the issue is not resolved then remove the ice bin. Remove the wires from the auger motor. With the freezer door open and the door switch depressed, push the ice cube release and check for 120VAC between the motor wires. If there is 120VAC then the motor has gone bad. If there is no 120VAC then the control board (module time delay) has to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
