Ok, Disconnect it from power,  Put everything back together if it isn't already, making sure that the relay and black wire from the overload are attached to the compressor.  When you plug it in and turn it on it should start filling the empty water reservoir.  If it doesn't fill, check for 120V at fill valve. Let us know what you find.

When you turn it on, the fill valve is the first thing that starts.  Even if it isn't connected to water, the control board should send voltage (120v) to the valve. just take the harness plug off the valve and insert your meter probes into the plug. Use the 200v alternating current scale.  If you don't get power going to the valve, the problem is very likely a bad control board.

Reading 125v on the fill valve connector.

At this point, I would hook it up to a good water supply, then start it and see how it follows the sequence of operation in the service manual.  It will either go through all steps and make ice, or it will fail to complete one of the actions.  Let us know when it deviates from the schedule in the manual.

It is likely not the compressor or relay, but it needs to be diagnosed in a systematic manner, so just hook it up, then start it with an empty water reservoir and we'll go from there.
