Whirlpool Icemaker Not working

Hello,
I have a whirlpool French Door Refrigerator (Model: wrx735sdbm00). Recently, the ice maker stopped making ice. So I did a bit of research and tried conducting ohm test of the Ice maker motor by following https://appliantology.org/blogs/entr…-refrigerator/, in addition to T&H , and L&V for 110 volts.

Unfortunately, all of the tests produce no results with the ohm meter. I then proceeded to open the motor case to expose the copper connectors inside. I tried doing the same test by placing the multimeter prongs directly on the copper lines (pic attached), but is still get no readings.

In further evaluating the situation, i think I am sure that I may have isolated the possible situation. In the pics attached, I believe somehow the connector located in the pic that connects to the right side of the heating element got fried and may have done irrefutable damage to the other components. I am looking for confirmation on this and/or other thoughts and suggestions.

In addition, I am looking to validate that the main wire harness connectors are good and ample/adequate power/ohms/voltage is being properly supplied thru the harness (pic attached). Any recommendations on what prongs can be tested on the wire harness with the expected ohm/voltage output?

Thanks in Advance
Gary S.
