    yes it was the hose from the house to the it was'nt making ice after chilled water stopped working.

    A couple of questions to clarify...

    1. Which hose was kinked? Was it the supply line from the house to teh fridge, or was it inside the fridge?

    2. Was it still making ice after the chilled water stopped working?

The kink in the hose should not have caused anything to burn out. There are no pumps in the fridge - normal water pressure is sufficient.

There's a pair of solenoid valves in the back - one for the icemaker and one for the water dispenser. They operate independently but are usually built into a single assembly. If the electro-magnetic coil is burned open on one or both of them, then you need to replace the valve assembly.

Another possibility is frozen water in the line.

My Kenmore refrigerator icemaker quit making ice. It still cycles through like it's attempting to make ice, we've checked the water line for kinks and blockage to no avail. Don't know quite...

There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1. Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2. Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3. Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4. Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Hope this would help.

Good day! : )

My stand up fridge (freezer up)has water pooling under the veggy trays, Kenmore special edition. model # 970-622810

The drain in the back of the freezer is clogged with ice. Turn off the refrigerator, remove everything from the freezer, remove the back and lower panels, and you will see what I am talking about. There will be a lot of ice everywhere. All of this ice should be removed. In the very back of the freezer, there is a drain. Make sure it is clear, then put everything back. This should solve the problem.

Refrigerator not making ice

Make sure the water line is clear and not kinked somewhere. It's also possible that the water line orifice is frozen inside the freezer at the ice maker area and blocking water flow. You can thaw it out with a hair dryer - point it at the water inlet - be careful

Kenmore freezer on the bottom. Ice-maker switch is turned on but no ice is being made?

Check your incoming water line for kinks. Make sure the water valve is turned on.
Replace the water filter.
Check inside the freezer and make sure the ice maker power cord is plugged in.

Kenmore Coldspot 10650522100 - water not getting to icemaker

look and inspect closely why the water is not going down the ice tray. maybe the soft hose to lead the water down to the tray is kinked or broke.

check also if there are still ice in the tray, they could have not dropped yet that is why water is just overflowing on the tray.

tnx 4 using fixya,

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.
