Terrence,

The thermostat is the least likeliest component, at this point.

How do you know he icemaker motor runs ?

My best guess at this point would be:

a bad fill valve contact in the icemaker control head,
a broken wire from the icemaker to the fill valve .

You could let the icemaker cycle or force a test cycle, and check for 120 volts on the wires to the icemaker fill valve wires, when the rake arm is in the 1 to 2 o'clock position(fill increment).

You could have the proper resistance on the valve solenoid, but still have an internal failure and the valve not open, if you prefer to start there.

Good Luck,

Good Luck,
