I just installed a modular ice maker (Whirlpool ECKMF95) in my new Maytag refrigerator. The ice maker cycled twice making ice cubes but hasn't cycled in the past 10 hours. My freezer is at 10 degrees F. Water flows to the ice maker. I have 120 volts at test points L-N. If I place a jumper wire at test points T-H I can manually cycle the maker. The ice maker just won't cycle by it self. What's happening?

Added model number

What's the model number of your new Maytag Refrigerator? The model number tag is located inside the refrigerator section on the upper walls or ceiling.

Did your new Maytag Refrigerator NOT come with a ice maker already installed?

ECKMF95 has changed to:
WPW10715708 Icemaker

Refrigerator model is MRT118FFFE04. No, the appliance did not come with an ice maker.

Thanks.

Ok, give it 72 hours when you first install a new ice maker, some take that long to start cycling at a normal rate, then it should work properly from then on.

The colder the freezer is the faster it will make ice. Get the freezer down to 0 to 5 degrees.
