Hey all I'm new to fridge repair but am an audio electronics tech so somewhat capable in regards to troubleshooting and electronics.

The ice maker in this fridge...my fridge...stopped making ice. The ice maker does not have any handy dandy test points on the front per all the videos I've watched. Here's what I've checked.

No cubes in the tray
Water pressure from floor line to valve is good
No VAC on valve coil terminals (is this only there for 7 seconds right after the tray spits out the ice?)

Haven't tried blowing in the inlet tube from valve to ice box yet
Haven't checked coil continuity on valve (I found out Bout these tips after reassembling the fridge and it's late)

My guess is the valve electrically or mechanically failed.

I'm trying to narrow my search for the culprit. Any advice greatly appreciated.
