If you have a old harness and and a old extension cord you can make a cheater cord out of the old harness by using the white wire and black wire with fuse in it and cut out the rest of the wires and keep the molex harness intact by were it plugs into ice maker and attach the extension cord to the other end with a plug and field test ice maker out side the box but you would have to jump out T and H at ice maker module.This just test that the ice maker is able to cycle which i am sure it is .Just thought i would put that out there.


Alright I'll check it out tomorrow. Thanks!

Have a look at the attachment?
Have you checked to see if you are getting power to the fill valve after forcing a harvest?
The attached PDF should help you

According to the guy that came out today the circuit board on the back of the fridge is acting up. When he tapped on the black boxes (relays I believe they are) the LED kept coming on and off. Something is off back there, need a new one he said.

Time to cough up some more moneys  :'(

Yes I have to as my home warranty only covers the washer and drier but not the fridge.

You sure that is the correct part number? I was seeing two on this website:
