Can someone please explain the sequence of operation for an ice maker?

Some questions I have are:

-How does the proper amount of water fill the tray? Is it just a timed process from the timer (for example: the ice maker sends a signal to the water valve for 3 seconds)?

-What signals the ice maker to go into harvest?

-Are all the processes just timed or are there any thermistors or bi-metal switches?

Default

-How does the proper amount of water fill the tray?
Yes. it is a timed event.

-What signals the ice maker to go into harvest?
The mold (tray) thermostat (Bi-metal) closes when it reaches a certain temperature.

-Are all the processes just timed or are there any thermistors or bi-metal switches?
There is a thermostat and then switches on the motor cam.

Here is a manual.
