No power to icemaker.

Anyone have a wire diagram?

Does door switch have to be made for power to I/M?

Thanks.

I already studied that manual.

There is no wiring diagram and no reference to ice maker issues.

 Power is going to  freezer light switch which is a 3 way switch and back to ice maker and breaking circuit with door open.

Should be able to hold door switch in and jump the t-stat as usual.  If still no voltage gotta be the wire harness fuse.

As I replied at ASTI, "always check the black and white thingy."

This is particularly true if the harvester isn't at the normal resting position.
Appliantology is, however appliances are not, an exact science for I know there are a few refrigerators that actually hate me.

The simplest explanation is most likely the correct and least expensive one, unless it's your compressor or motherboard" Occam as an appliantologist

"When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth; unless it's your compressor or motherboard." Mr. Spock as an appliantologist

"I think, therefore I have no earthly idea why this thing is not working...I got nothin'...". Rumored to have been uttered by a frustrated Descartes while diagnosing his GE Profile.
