The are several components that will cause an ice maker to stop working. For this refrigerator the cause could be the water valve, the tubing, or the ice maker itself. You will want to first check to see if the tubing on the refrigerator is frozen. Any ice in the line will prevent the water from coming though. If the line is clear, then check the water valve and the ice maker. This will require testing the continuity for both. Get your volt meter and put the meter probes into the water inlet valve connectors that plug into the water inlet valve and test for 120 volts while you have a jumper wire in the ice maker module L & V test points on the ice maker module. If the valve test at 120 volts then the ice maker is the problem. If you need any further assistance please reply below.

Thank you. I started with the in line water filter and that didn't solve the problem. I turned off the freezer and left the door open overnight to try to clear a frozen line if that was the problem. Again, did not work. I have since ordered the water valve / solenoid. Hopefully that's the problem. The fridge is located on a beach front property and I'm suspecting the salt air may have contributed to the solenoid failing. The fridge is ten years old, so maybe it's just time for the solenoid to go. Unfortunately I'm not there now and have to rely on someone else to fix this now and will pass on the suggestion to try the conductivity. Thanks again,
