ok...for some reason after jumpering out the H T terminals, the icemaker has started working again...very weird...I'm leery of magical fixes like this, sounds like I should be expecting this to fail, right?

ok, my only thermometers are celcius.  Freezer is set for 1 F, or -17 C.  Thermometer reads below -10 C...believe that all's ok with thermostat?

Power then is getting to the ice maker so it may be a bad thermostat if the ice maker motor started when you jumpered it out

 

Aw crap, the thermostat isn't at all what I thinking...lol...freezer temp is good, doesn't vary much (assuming so since foods with sugar don't frost) and prepared dishes which have salt are solid, too.

 

I'll put a thermometer in and report back...as always, thanks guys!

Thanks guys.  Optics are fine.  I removed and jumped out the H and T terminals.  Didn't hear anything after waiting for about 5 minutes.  Came back and the tray was filled with water... Guess that means the valve isn't bad.  Are you thinking that because it worked while jumpered out that the module is bad?

 

Thanks again!
