Kenmore ice maker not making ice

We have a Kenmore model #106.56664500

    The ice maker in my top freezer Kenmore fridge no longer makes ice and it seems that no water is getting sucked into the ice maker. The ice maker is moving continuously trying to work but there is no water. No problem with the water line after checking it out. Trying to figure out if there is some sort of separate pump that is malfunctioning before trying to repair.

We didn't really do anything, whatever was wrong seems to have fixed itself
Got up this morning and was making ice again.
Strange; maybe Casper fixed it??!

The ice maker overflows the ice tray, so water runs down the side of my freezer.


if it has worked for 3 years then I would guess just a new tray

Kenmore 795.5102 will not make ice


The problem is the ice maker, the modular head of the ice maker has broken, hence the clicking sound and the raised arm stuck up. You will need to have an accurate model number and contact a local parts distributor for a new ice maker. It is a simple repair usually only 2-3 screws.

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 106.56542400. The ice-maker does not work though the cold water works fine. How much it will cost me? Trying to see if buying a new one is cheaper. Thanks.


The cost depends on where the problem is. For example: If the ice maker is NOT getting water to make ice then it is probably the 2 line water valve solenoid or the sensor on the ice maker that would tell the 2 line water valve solenoid to send water up to the ice maker tray. Both of those replacements will cost you in the neighborhood of $25.00 - $40.00 plus a service call if you aren't able to do the work yourself.

If water is getting to your ice tray, but not kicking out the ice into the bin - that is usually a motor problem. And cost you as much as what a replacement ice maker would cost you.

To give you an idea of the cost of parts here is the layout for your unit: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10656542400/0582/0165000/K0707001/00012

My Kenmore refrigerators (model #79177990) ice


Ice inlet tube may be frozen up inside of Fridge. Thaw it out with a hair blower. Shut of water supply and disconnect the water line that goes into the back. Use a flexable item at the connection to see if will go all the way through to the icemaker. I used a zip tie.

If you still don't have water going to the icemaker, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at bottom back right of your Fridge. Easy to Do.

Kenmore 56541 side by side icemaker nor making ice The in door water dispencer works Arm on tray is on no water getting to tray


1.Bad water valve located in the back bottom of refrigerator.
2. Frozen fill tube going into back of ice maker. (common problem)
3. Ice maker not cycling. Pour water into ice maker cavity until near filled.
Wait a few hours and see if it dumps.
4.In rare cases, the switch in the ice maker body fails. Ice maker will cycle but not tell water valve to refill.

Water doesnt stop after ice tray is filled


there is a micro switch in the ice maker motor module that shuts power off to the ice-maker water valve when the ice maker is full but i rarely see them go bad this is the easy way to deal with it pull the unit out unplug both the valves and turn the water on a sec if its running in the ice maker with the valves are unplugged then replace the valves if its not replace the ice-maker motor module

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working


A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.
