The icemaker fills, just won't deliver. It was creating stalactites for a month or so with the cubes before it quit. I pulled it out and the water tray is pretty corroded so it needs to be replaced. I would just like to make sure it's the ice-maker itself and not a power issue. Should I meter the connector to be sure power is ok before ordering a new one?

Yes,

What I do is use my multimeter to check for 120 volts at the ice maker module. The plastic front cover on the ice maker just unsnaps off. Then you will see Test points L & N to verify 120 volts. Put your meter leads in L & N to see if your meter reads 120 volts.

If you do get 120 volts at L & N then you have power to the ice maker. So that would indicate your ice maker itself is bad.

Here's the Ice Maker assembly for your model you can order:

Thanks for the prompt response Jake. I do have 120 at those points so I'll be ordering a replacement. Thanks again.
