you could still have a bad water valve. there are 2 ports. i usually jump the ice maker thru a cycle and see if you get 110 volts to the ice maker water valve. if you get a reading the water valve is bad. if there is no reading then the IM head is bad. last and not least, the IM head needs to be pulled down, see if there is a build up of ice in the supply tube to the IM. then you have a problem with the board
you need to make sure that the unit has the water supply turned on. if you have a water dispensor on the front door and you are getting water then the water supply is on.
This ice maker is located in tight spot and has to be removed to cycle it manualy. so im going to give you a different way of doing a test.
first i want you to try to put your finger in the ice maker to see if you have any water or ice in it.
If it is empty then follow this step : try to get water in it without removing the ice maker. Do not fill it to the rim, just about halfway. This wont be easy, but if you do that you can check it the next day and see if it droped ice. if it did then your water valve is bad.
If it has ice in it then the ice maker in mostlikey bad.
or the switch for on and off is bad. (not common)
The freezer has to be under 14 F for most ice makers to operate.
the ice maker unit prob' bad and if you sure it is on and the flag is not stoping it from runing you might need a new unit but there are other tests you can do before.. call me 843.789.4824
Im in Charleston S.C but will happy to help you
Make certain the fill tube is aligned properly and not the problem. As well, make sure the machine and Ice maker are level.
If you installed a new water valve, and there was no change, then yes the IceMaker is probably defective.
Don't need a model number, just take the ice maker in to any appliance parts house. They will match it up.
You don't normally have to go to Sears. Take the model number of the machine with you if you like.
this may sound stupid but is the ice maker turned on? Does it say "ice" in the display? If it does, check to see if the ice level arm is jammed into the upper position also make sure that the ice bin is in place (it actuates the ice maker switch) make sure there is no ice stuck to the top of the ice maker
If you are sure that power is getting to the ice maker unit inside the freezer and you're sure that water is available for the ice maker...
Try these next steps:
Follow the water line for the ice maker back to the ice maker water solenoid
Follow the wiring from the water valve to its source - either a timer or circuit board
Check the timer and/or circuit board for any bad connections, burned connections and power to the board or timer. This arrangement can vary by refrigerator model number...
You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive. On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

if you keep your hands out of the little beam slot on the paddel that is located on the left of the freezer and push it in the beam should shoot across to the reciever on the right and the light should stay on constant, that is if you have the switch on the right side turned on.
if it is turned on and the paddel is depressed and the light is still blinking the you need a beam kit part number 4389102
I would check the valve that provides water to the ice maker before doing any thing with the ice maker head. Check voltage to the valve when the ice maker is in harvest mode. (with a good volt meter). watch the meter for the whole harvest cycle or you will miss the reading. if volage is good 99% chance youve got a bad valve, assuming the inlet tube is not frozen. Best of Luck.
