GE Profile, Bottom Freezer Ice Maker Issues, pfss6pkwass

So I am at a loss. The ice maker quit working.

I bought a new ice maker unit and replaced that (the item where the water poors in and is made / ejected). It has a large wire harness.

After replacing it still no ice after some time.

I manually filled the new ice maker unit with water to see if it would freeze / cycle. Sure enough an hour or so later it dumped 7 frozen cubes into the tray but it never filled back up with water.

I then thought it was a water issue. Removed the back panel checked the tubes, all looked well. Just to make sure I removed the two clips from the water valves (dual valves). I had my girlfriend push the water dispense handle while I held the clip to the ice water valve. Clip did not fit but it made sufficient contact to engage the valve. I held it there to verify that the line was not clogged and water could flow into the ice machine.

Sure enough the ice maker was filled with water (a little too much). So the water valve works when given power and the tube is free.

What else wold stop the fridge from sending power to the water valve to start the water flow into the fridge?
