I don't believe this is a complete model number.
Please check again.

I checked the model number again and the only other number there is  a tiny 106
in the lower left hand corner before the model #52582201, Coldspot.

That 106 is part of the model number.
I corrected the first post to include the full model number, 106.52582201

Your model has the Acceler-Ice feature, if I recall...a booster fan under the icemaker to enhance production.

None of this works if the water valve is not letting water to the icemaker. Here's a simple way to find out...take the white cover off the icemaker and insert an insulated jumper wire into the holes marked V and L. This supplies power to the water valve. If water enters when this jumper is in place, we know 2 things:

1. The icemaker is bad
2. The valve is OK

Of course, always check the obvious, a frozen up fill tube behind the icemker will create similar complaints.
