Ice maker just stopped making ice. This is a side-by-side refrigerator with the ice maker in the freezer door. Thanks to this forum and YouTube I found two broken wires at the bottom of the freezer door (yellow and black). I repaired them and went into the troubleshooting mode steps 44 and 45.

When starting in step 44 the reading was 23, using the change setting key (3) I set it to 1 and after a few seconds it flipped to 12... then 23 again. I went to step 45 and it opened at 01, after a reasonable wait I tried to change it but it would not change. Any advice will be appreciated. Water valve? Motor? Circuit beaker? Thank you.

Hi Jake, I made it part way through the service guide but soon realized that I would need my voltmeter which I destroyed at the start of the summer working on my A/C, so it will be a while before I return to this project. Rest assured however I will report results someday. Also the picture of the icemaker you supplied is not the correct one, no problem however since it contained a link to the correct one. Best regards.

The photo of your ice maker is perfect, I don't know why you said it wasn't.

Here's our other parts suppliers photo of it:
