Make sure the temperature in the freezer is bellow 10F and the "on-off" switch on the right side is on.

Pull the ice maker out (the instructions are attached) but do not disconnect the wire harness.

Remove the ice maker head cover and check for 120VAC between "N" & "L" test points. Make sure the test probes are 1/2" in.

If there is 120VAC then using an insulated piece of wire (14 GA), short points "T" & "H" to run the motor. Leave the jumper in for a half of a revolution and remove it. The water valve should be energized in the last half of the revolution.

Post the results.
