have a kenmore fridge model #106.56532400.Ice maker went out,bought new one still doesn't work.Seems like no power to ice maker.Fridge runs good,gets good,defrost and freezes ice cubes in trays.Water dispences out of door so I would think the water valves are good.According to what I've read on internet the emmiting boards are good (blink,blink,pause-flipper close steady red light) so I'm thinking no power to ice.Was wonder if I use multi-meter and check at end of elec. harness coming out of freezer side wall to ice maker would tell me theres power and the on off switch is good .If this would work what color is the hot wire and which is ground

I use ice for my beverages almost daily and I know how important it is to have a good working ice maker in the home. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I did manage to find two links that will provide you with some good tips on what to test on your ice maker. I hope my links are useful.
