Circumstance was that the icemaker valve tested bad.  I replaced that with correct part, 67005154. Tested drinking water valve, came out fine and so did ice maker water when I jumpered the brown and black together. 

Then...reinstalled the icemaker, and cycled it with the T & H only to watch it cycle twice, get VERY HOT, produce no water and then QUIT completely. 

Can someone tell me what happened?  Why no water, why it go so so hot and why it quit?  It is the icemaker, harness or both?  Thanks in advance!

See if the fuse in the harness blew. Also, how long did you leave the jumper in the T and H ports?

Thanks for the quick reply.  I will check on the fuse harness.  How to you check that fuse?  

I did leave the jumper in the T & H ports for a while.  10 minutes or more.  Is there a proper or improper amount of time to leave them/pull them out of the ports?

Is leaving the jumper in the ports bad, good, can it blow the fuse, etc?

Thanks!

I read the service manual posted, thank you!

By leaving the jumper in the T & H this energizes the heat cycle, and then by not taking it out the heat cycle must have not shut off and the water valve did not open.   The module got so hot it more than likely blew the fuse in the harness?? 
Do you think the icemaker is still good?

First off, you guys are right and give invaluable advice. 
It was the fuse in the black wire that had blown.  Instead of ordering a new wire harness since this one is kind of long, I spliced in a fuse from one of the dozens of harnesses that has come with many of the icemaker kits I've ordered.

only need to leave the jumper in for about 10 seconds....next time you go to cycle one listen for the contacts to click in about 10 sec. at that point you can remove the jumper.
