Question about Refrigerators
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve and then try the water dispenser. The water should go into your ice maker. This will tell you if the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear. If it gets water then the ice maker may start cycling when it freezes and dumps the ice.

It sounds like the valve is bad, if there's no water in it. The 190 reading could indicate a bad reading. It's hard to say if the solenoid for the ice maker is bad, until you get some water to it and check it.
I would concentrate on that valve- it sure sounds like it's bad.
If you go to the following website and enter your model number, you might get some diagrams and parts lists to assist you:

The solenoid could check good but the innards of the water valve might be fouled. So even if it checked good it could still be bad. The ice maker is what powers the valve. Nothing else. Their are types of ice makers. The Compact and the Modular.
The compact looks like THIS

To start with you should please follow these basic troubleshooting steps
look in the back at the bottom where the main water feed comes in, its hooked to a little plastic valve, and on the other side is the plastic line that goes to the ice maker in the back.
Also, look inside freezer, unscrew little door in the back in look into the coils, if they are covered in ice, its another problem in the lower front which you will need an appliance repairman to fix, doesnt cost much, get the right person, check inside freezer first before doing anything, if no ice on the coils, order the part, that is your problem.
Check the fill tube that runs into the icemaker if it is frozen shut... You need to remove that and thaw it out and then it should work...get a hair dryer and turn it onto the back of the refrigerator where the water goes into the icemaker. Be careful not to leave it very long for fear of melting the tube, just keep doing it every so often
If all these steps do not solve the problem then i suggest you check the thermostat and solenoid for damages.

Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.
