The ice maker works again! I replaced the dual water valve and we have ice again! Thanks for all of your advice here!

I'll report back after I install the new valve.

I finally got around to testing this further. I tested the water inlet valve from the back of the fridge. I used a test cord that I attached to the valve, and then plugged directly into the wall. When I did that, nothing happened. The valve did not power up, make any noise, or try to fill the ice maker with water. Sounds like my water inlet valve is the culprit here.

Ack, I didn't hold the freezer light switch closed when I originally connected "T" and "H"! Tried again and the gear did indeed turn the full cycle, raising and lowering the arm. Unfortunately the ice maker did not fill with water.

 

I tried jumping "N" to "V" and there was no reaction at all. No water filling.

 

I don't have a meter so I can't test the fuse wire yet. Does this sound more and more like a water valve issue, or should I go through the effort of getting a meter and testing out the ice maker harness? Oh, to add to the list of problems, the fridge now makes a moderate knocking sound every so often. Grrrr.

I tried shorting T&H with a black insulated wire - I installed a light fixture yesterday so I had some extra electrical wire. It didn't make the ice maker gear turn, so I guess that means that I need a new module? Should I check anything else before throwing in the towel on this unit? Is it possible that there's a problem with the fuse wires shown above, or is it most definitely the ice maker unit itself? Thanks again!!!
