It is quite a common case, there is no power because the solenoid that power the valve is defective, replace the solenoid.

First off,you will not have voltage at the valve unless your checking it while you are activating the switch on the door where you hold your glass up to.Secondly the Ice Maker is going to have to be sending the voltage when its ready to fill the tray with water,so....you see now how hard your chances are to get a reading when it fills up about 2 times a hour.

Magic Chef refrigerator model CTF1923. erratic ice production


As long as your freezer temperature is at 0 you should have steady ice production. If you have to jumper the ice maker to get it to harvest then you most likely have a bad thermostat. That coupled with the leak issue really warrants just replacing the entire ice maker.
Be sure to ask for pricing on both the ice maker by itself as well as the complete kit. You may be surprised to find that the entire kit (including a new valve, line and bucket) will cost lest than just the ice maker by itself.
Good luck!

Magic Chef Side by Side MOdel RC224RDA


I have the same problem. It turned out to be a problem with the doors. When my kids go to get a snack and close the fridge door (read slam the door) the air pressure pops the seal open on the freezer door causing the ice cubes to begin melting. The bottom items stay frozen (warm air rises). It took me a long time to work this out.
Remove the ice maker tray. Remove the ice blob, being careful to put the u-shaped wire ice-level sensing wire thing, in the up position or the system will dump ice and water all over the freezer. Put all back clean and dry and buy a velcro adhesive strip and install it on top of the freezer door to prevent the door from always blowing open.
Hope this helps

Ice maker


Hollow ice is a sign that the icemaker is not getting enough water.
You will want to make sure there is enough water coming to the fridge and any filters in the system are clean.
If you need help checking it, please post the complete model number from the fridge and I can help you more.
