There is a metal wire that gets pushed up when the Ice becomes too full and turns off the ice maker. You can pull it back down with you hand and that will unlock it and turn the ice maker back on.

Ice maker quit working but water dispenser still works,the reservoir to make cubes also empty.can you advise?

If the ice maker tray is empty you may have a water valve failure. usually this unit have a dual valve 1 for the dispenser the other one for the ice maker some time a side fail and the entire solenoid have to be replace. the ice maker can also be bad. an easy way for you to test if ice maker is good is by putting water manually inside the ice maker tray depending on how cold is your frig wait about 2 hrs or less if the ice maker cycles and drop ice then water solenoid is the problem if not then replace ice maker.

Water is not coming out of the dispenser. Frig is

Good day,
4 hours is no ware enough time. As well, turning the freezer to a warmer temperature does little, since you're only changing it by a few degrees.
Forcing anything thru that tube, if it's ice can result in a difficult and expensive repair.
No body likes this, but shutting the machine off (unplugged), leaving the freezer door open with a floor fan blowing on the inside of the door is safe, but inconvenient.

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice

Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

The ice maker stopped working on my Kenmore Mod 106.55532400

either your water valve is clogged or it has gone bad, located bottom right corner, you can take it apart and check the screen filter if it is not clogged than you need a new valve approx 72-80$ plus install unless you diy!

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator model et22dq. The ice maker makes ice and dumps it but won't dispense thru the door. It seems to freeze in the ice bin. Could there be a water leak inside the ice maker?...

The ice door located in the ice chute in the door is not closing. Allowing wam air in your ice bin which melts the ice at the bottom of your bin there for making a huge ice dam. Replace cirercut board at cost of 295.00

Whirlpool Frig

There could be so many different things that cause the problem. Service cost a lot of Money and I can think of about ten different reasons why the ice maker isn't doing it's job. If I was there I know I could find the reason. Like poor air circulation around the ice maker, restrictions in the water flow to the maker, low freezer temp., door gasket leakage, etc. It may be more cost effective to purchace a new fridge with the features you want and need.

 I will continue to research this if you like. Hope this helps.3550f68.jpg
