My icemaker stopped working. 

 

Flow tube is all clear & not frozen.  Water pressure is good.  Inlet valve tests OK.  Installed new icemaker and still no ice.  Tested icemaker with jump wire and nothing happens. Is it a power problem?

 

Wondering what to do next.  Could wire harness in icemaker be bad?  Used original when installing new icemaker.  Only other thing I can think of is the inlet valve but that seemed to test OK.

 

Appreciate any/all help.  Thanks.

Do a continuity check on the harness, particularly the wire with the white and black rectangular tbermal fuse. Then again I could be mistaken since you did not provide a model number.

btw, what are your freezer temps?

Possible bad door switch?

 

And if testing/jumping T-H on ice maker you must tape door switch shut or ice maker won't work on alot of bottom freezer units.
