C,

You could have a bad fill valve.

But test the icemaker first.

You'll need a piece of tape and a short piece(2 or 3 inches long) of 14 guage wire.

*** Be careful when doing this test ***

Open the freezer door and get access to the icemaker.
Tape the freezer door light switch closed/down.
Remove the white plastic cover from the front of the icemaker assembly.
Strip 1/2 to 3/4 inches of the insulation off both ends of the wire.
Insert one end of the wire into the opening labeled "H", and the other end of the wire into the "T" opening(both openings are laocated in the bottom right corner of the module body face approx. 4 and 5 o'clock positions)
Make sure the ends of the wires are in deep enough to contact the internal contacts in the module.
once the main gear starts to rotate, remove the wire.
* If the gear does not start to rotate in a few seconds, you'll need to replace the icemaker.*

Part number: AP4135008

Part number: AP4135008



If the main gear rotates and the rake arm moves, at the 3 to 9 o'clock the heater should activate and you should be able to feel the heat from the bottom of the ice maker.
At the 1 to 2 o'clock position, the icemaker should fill with water, or you may hear a buzz from the fill valve, but no water would indicate a bad fill valve.

You should have this issue figured out in a few minutes, and on the way to repairing the fridge.

Good Luck,
