Went back today I had to order the wiring harness, and when it got in the customer was on vacation. Today I picked up the fill valve, and went to install the harness and the fill valve. I checked the old wire harness, the black wire had continuity. I checked the voltage at the icemaker plug, 1.6 V. I thought why, and then I remembered that the freezer light switch opens the circuit to the icemaker when the door is open. Depressed door switch, messured voltage at plug on back wall, 123V, replaced fill valve, all is well.

Thanks for all the help. I will definately remember when checking votage to the icemaker to depress the door switch. I think that would apply to a manual
havest cycle also.

Always, always, ALWAYS look at the schematic on the tech sheet for the unit you're working on. In this case, the schematic shows that the ice maker gets power through the freezer light switch so manual harvest wouldn't work unless the freezer light switch was closed. This isn't always true for all models, it just happens to be the way this one is wired. If you don't review the tech sheet before you start troubleshooting ANY appliance, you're flying blind. BTW, the tech sheet is in front, behind the to grill.

On a brighter note, this unit uses the infamous Jazz control board which are famous fro failing early and often. So it's a sure bet that you'll be back soon on a no- defrost complaint. :)
