Some come with two or more wiring harnesses. You pick the right one for your fridge, plug the correct harness into both the ice-maker and the fridge.

Are you talking about a repair kit or a new ice maker?

Any water filters involved, in the fridge or a reverse osmosis filter?
Or both?

No, *everything* has been eliminated, it is *definitely* a problem with the ice maker itself

Take a sharpie pen and park the hub on that gear so you get it back on right (it fits either way) Pinch the hub and pull the gear off. The actual timing contacts are under there on the gear (that is why you mark it, so you don't put it back 180 out of time) If you look at the trace on the outer ring you see a wedge shaped segment about 1/8" wide. That is what triggers the water. When you turn the adjuster you are moving the contact finger in and out, selecting narrower or wider areas on the contact for more or less water. Clockwise is less water. BE CAREFUL about bending those contacts. You can screw it up so bad nothing works. You might be able to clean the one that selects the water valve. The whole plate was $34 when I got one a month ago but I see they want $39 now. The whole thing is $49. You can force a cycle by jumpering the T and H contacts (in the holes in front) with an insulated piece of wire. Once it gets going pretty good pull out the jumper.
