In response to your question as to what the trouble was with the hold switch: I found that the Normally Closed contacts were resistive. Reading any where from over seven Kilo ohms to just a few. I had also wondered if there was something causing too much current to flow in that circuit; like, maybe the heater. The icemaker never "called" for any water. I could manually fill the icemaker tray, and it would freeze and eject the frozen ice cubes. I replaced the dual water valve because it had gotten kinda sluggish when I drew chilled water. When that didn't resolve the icemaker problem, I removed it (icemaker)and discovered that the stop switch was defective again. Thank you for your reply. Kenneth

Kenneth for Model Number GE WR30X0289 Icemaker

ANSWER Hello Kenneth. If the water valve is new, then the issue is the icemaker WR30X10093 and it is best to replace it as a unit. These icemakers are electronic and don't work well being repaired. It is best to replace it.
