Kenmore Elite Side by Side, Model #56703500

My ice maker stopped working. The refridge is less then 3 years old. The water dispensor works fine, but the ice maker stopped making ice. The infra red light blinks twice and then pauses before blinking twice again. Closed the flap on the other side and the light still dues the blink twice & pause routine. Checked the water line in the back and it looks fine. Also moved things around in the ice maker and there seems to be nothing blocking it. Took out the removable ice bin, washed it and checked the chute. Nothing seems to be out of order. Any other suggestions? I looked for a wire arm to see if it was stuck, but was unable to find it.

    I have the same problem as well. Yesterday the ice maker and water worked fine. Today, the whole light panel is out, and I can't get ice or water. The ice maker light blinks red twice, pauses, and blinks red again. I will be calling a tech since I just purchased the fridge less than two weeks ago.

SOURCE: GE Icemaker flap door won't open causes ice jam in chute

There is an electric solenoid that opens the door. If you look up inside the dispenser you can see the solenoid. Either the solenoid is bad or the dispenser module that puts power to it is out. You will need to remove dispenser front and check for voltage to solenoid. If you have power from module, replace solenoid, if no power, replace both parts. It is common for solenoid to short out and damage the module so that both must be replaced. If solenoid is shorted and you replace module, new part will fry.

SOURCE: flap on ice dispensor does not close.

The flap is probably gummed up with sugar from filling glasses with sugary drinks in them. When the ice drops into the glass it splashes the drink into the chute. It needs cleaning.

Just flushing plain water over, under, around and through it will probably free it up (yeah, I kow it's going to be messy).

Kenmore sidebyside no water or ice replaced valve and icemaker still nothing


The first thing I woulb check is the water filter itself. Water comes into the machine via the water valve, and from the valve it goes to the filter and the to its respective area, dispensor or ice maker. It's a very rare case that both the ice maker and water in the door stop working at the same time other than the filter being bad,

OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.


Ice maker water not stopping
The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

The ice maker stopped making ice. Any solutions?


A lot of filters ( not all ) do not even access the ice maker . Only the water dispensor . If your water dispensor is working fine , then you need to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece the wall water line connects to . It is called a dual valve because there are 2 coils on the valve . 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispensor .

Icemaker dont work after power outage


Make sure the ice bail wire is not lifted. If it is, the ice maker will not make ice.

The water valve may have failed to. It's in the bottom back of the refrigerator, and the water line normally connects near where the valve is.

Let me know what you find.

Kenmore elite refrigerator water dispensor not working


If you just got this unit, did you purchase it new? Or if it's uner a year old then you should call sera for service under the war. Also, when you first start the unit water has to go through the water tank and it takes 3 - 5 mins before the water starts to work when first hooked up, then should be ok after that. There are several things that can cause the problem. Could have a kinked line in the ref, a bad water valve or even a frozen water tank. Also, did the water ever work since you had it?
