Checked for 120v at L and N. could not get a reading


Check the thermal fuse in the wire between the cabinet and ice maker ( black slug ). Continuity is good, no continuity is open or bad.

is there a diagram for the freezer plug to tell me the test points?


[Linked Image]

GR/YL is ground.
WH is white or neutral.
BL RD is line.
TN is for the fill valve.

i checked the four wire harness between ice maker and cabinet for continuity all four were good


Ever since i was a little guy, I have had to take things apart to see what made them work, and usually I was able to put them back together.

Broken wire in the cabinet is likely then if we are not getting any power ( 110-120 volts AC ) readings from Line to Neutral or from Line to ground frown

I found a diagram linked here.

I use to drill a hole out the back and try to run a new wire up into the freezer when we suspected a broken or open wire in the cabinet.

Thanks for the link, could you possibly draw a
hand sketch to simplify it for me though, which wires am I replacing

Is this correct?
Red/black to white, 0 volts.
Red/black to green/yellow 0 volts.

the four pin connector color code seems to vary from the diagram
from top to bottom
green/wt
tan
wt
red
there is not a red/blk and the wire color are in a different order from the above diagram
from red to white =0 volts
from red to grn/wt = 0 volts
thanks

No there is not, what this is the refrigerator side of the wire plug has line being black, this changes to red on the ice maker side of the harness plug.

Quote
from red to white =0 volts
from red to grn/wt = 0 volts


This would indicate the line is missing not the neutral. I would just run a single wire down to the power side of the cord plug and other end hook up in the freezer to the red power wire on the ice maker wire harness.
Diagram linked here.
On the diagram it is L1 you would hook into on the power cord.
