Check the feeler arm to make sure that it is not obstructed. This could prevent the ice maker from cycling.

Make sure that the ice maker is turned on according to the guidelines in the first image below. Check the green power light to make sure that it is on. If the green power light is not on, you could have a problem with the ice maker module or a wire harness failure. You can

unplug the refrigerator

and check the wire harness connection for the ice maker. A technician would normally check the voltage at the ice maker if the green light is not on as shown in the second image below. I don't recommend that you conduct this type of live voltage check yourself. You can check the continuity through the brown wire and orange wire to the outlet plug with the refrigerator still unplugged. This would be a safer test for voltage to the ice maker. If you confirm continuity through those wires then the ice maker module is apparently getting power through the wiring harness. In this situation, you would need to replace the ice maker assembly (part WR30X10081) to fix this problem. You can order that part from the

Sears PartsDirect

website.

If the green power light is on, you can check the water fill tube on the ice maker to make sure that it is not frozen. This could prevent the ice maker from filling.

A failed water fill valve could also prevent the ice maker from filling. Check the resistance through the fill valve circuit as shown in the second image below.

If the green light is on and the fill valve is okay, then you will need to replace the ice maker assembly according the troubleshooting guide for this refrigerator as shown below.

If you need more help, submit additional details and we will try to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
