Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a Kenmore 106.71192101 refrigerator and the icemaker stopped working. The ice maker is hooked up to a RO system. I know water is getting to the Valve Solenoid but the water is not going from the water solenoid to the water tube to the actual ice maker so I replaced the Valve Solenoid. That didn't work. There is still no water coming to the water tube. I have checked all the electrical connections. The shut off arm is sort of flimsy so could the problem be within the icemaker itself so that when that arm is down it not calling for water? Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I have included the link to the icemaker diagram. Thank you.
Ok follow these steps to trouble shoot 1st remove white cover from front of ice maker there you can now see the module of the unit .that would be part number 35 on the parts list. 2nd get a 12 gauge insulated wire about 2 inches long and stripp the ends of it . insert it in the two holes in front with letter h and t live there for about 20 seconds now look at the forks inside are they moving if yes check fill tube for a plug of ice that wont let water fill the the ice maker if no they dont move repl that part 35 you can repl your self just disconnect unit remove the three bronze philip screws and pull out ahh but first remove wire harness so it will be easy to pull out ok thanks

Remove the three screws that hold the icemaker on to the refrigerator and then disconnect the wire harness from the back. Make sure that the refrigerator is unplugged first. Take the front white cover from the front and remove the wire harness from the module. Remove the three screws that hold the module in place and pull it out. With some needle nose pliers squeeze the clip that is on the big plastic sprocket on the front of the module and push it through. Pull the plastic sprocket off the front and you will see black charring in the wheel and also on one or two of the copper prongs underneath. Scrape the soot off of the contacts with a razor knife. Next the prongs that have burned the ends off, bend them up to the same level as the other prongs and put the little bend on the end with your needle nose pliers. Check to make sure that all of the prongs are about the same height. Assemble it together in reverse order and plug the refrigerator in. Now take the 12 gauge wire and strip the ends and connect them to the h and t holes. If the forks go around and water fills the ice tray you have fixed the problem. This is the solution for those who can't afford the hundred dollars to get a new part.
