Question about Kenmore 53603 / 53606 Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

11 Answers

Ice Machine The ice machine is no longer making ice. It is "ON" and the water dispenser still works, but there is no ice being made. The freezer is still very cold and it is set to zero degrees. I've cleaned under it, it was somewhat dusty, but nothing major. Any help you can offer will be appreicated.

    Same problem.

    i emptied my ice bucket, replaced it in the freezer compartment, made sure the wire signal arm is down and now there is no ice making. It would appear that the control for allowing the water solenoid to add water to the ice tray is not being signalled. Is there any history of a faultly switch in the front of the ice maker compartment. My fridge is one year ols, any suggestions please email me at itsmint69@aapt.net.au

    I have a frigidaire refrigerator, I moved from one house to the other the first day the frig worked fine. The second day the ice started melting, and stop making ice. The freezer side and the frig. side was not getting cold. The freezer side started to get ice on the back panel. What could be the problem?

    ice wont dispense from tray samsung 1 yr old

  • phil seaman May 11, 2008

    Model JFC2089HEP
    The ice maker was working fine, actually it made a little too much ice. One day I took the ice tray out to dump most of the ice into an ice chest. To get the tray out I raised the little wire bar, not knowing this would stop the ice making. I've since discovered the function and have put it down, BUT there is no ice being made.

    I've tried the "speed ice" setting, but this doesn't appear to help either.

    Help please!

95% of ice maker problems are the motor module. See http://tinyurl.com/ykln8r for what it is and if it matches your fridge. Basically here's what ya need for ice... 17 degrees (F) or below, water fill solenoid working with water flow, t-stat on ice tray working OK and motor module turning.

I have seen two issues in my experience that may or may not apply to your situation. In one instance the water feed tube or trough stooped the flow of water to the ice maker and this produce a small transient water leak initially and then it stopped working and leaking eventually as the blocked tube did not thaw. The other issue was ice in the ice maker that lodged in the blades of the ejector and prevented ice production.

We had the same problem. The plastic dial on the motor module was broken. The repairman told us that the dial is not sold alone and the module costs between $70 and $90. We got a module out of another refrigerator which wasn't working and replaced it. The ice maker is doing great!

Change the filter

Posted on Apr 14, 2008

I had the same problem and it was the motor module. I replaced the module and the ice started coming. It's not a very hard do-it-yourself job, either.

Posted on Sep 15, 2007

Happens to mine also. You will find lots of solutions to check that motor, try the switch, yada yada. Mine simply ices over in the tray and the Ice has issues releasing. I tap the old ice off the ice makers "fingers" and it starts creating ice again.

1) Vacuum the dust build-up from the coils every month. 2) Install a water softener or a 5 micron carbon type filter to remove limestone (scale) build-up, if using city water.

This works with a bouble solonoide make sure ther is voltage on the solonoide when the ice tray turns to fill up . if so replasce solonoide.if not replace micro sw and ,or, pcb

I had similar problems during the summer weeks. Cleaning the dust in the componet and grill above the top door and then turning the freezer nob all the way down (coldest) seemed to do the trick. Now it works fine during the winter. Hope this helps!

Hello,
There are as you can imagine many possible causes for you no ice condition. I will give you the most common problem for the year model you have. I hope this helps you.
You will need to remove the ice maker from the freezer compartment to check it. Once it is repaired if the following information does help, and you reinstall the ice maker, it should go through a cycle automatically within an hour of your reinstalling it in the freezer compartment.
Once you have the ice maker out of the freezer compartment you will need to remove the white cover on the end of the ice maker and look at the center of the large white gear. If the part inside the hole in the center of the gear is broken or looks twisted, you will need to replaced the module. The module is the part that has the large white gear and is held in the ice maker by 3 phillips head screws. It only comes as an assembly. You can't get just the little broken piece.

The ice machine is no longer taking in water to make ice


Sometimes the valve on the water line becomes plugged and can no longer supply water to the refrigerator. The other options are that the ice maker could possibly not be supplying voltage to the solenoid valve on the rear of the fridge, or the solenoid valve could be bad itself.

Ice maker not working but are getting water from dispenser.


IF YOU HAVE THE SAME FREEZER AS MY MOM HAS THEN I MAY CAN HELP YOU OUT. FIRST OFF WHEN YOU OPEN THE FREEZER PORTION (SIDE BY SIDE STYLE) YOU WILL SEE THE ICE DISPENSER. TAKE THE PART OFF WHERE IS SHOWS YOU: TO MAKE ICE MAKE SURE ARM IS DOWN AND TO STOP MAKING ICE RAISE ARM. THAT IS A COVER THAT WILL COME OFF WITH NO TOOLS NEEDED. ONCE YOU OPEN THIS YOU WILL SEE A METAL FRAME WITH A WHEEL IN THE MIDDLE THAT SAYS DO NOT TURN BY HAND. LOOK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WHEEL AND SEE IF THE ROD IS BROKEN (FOR EXAMPLE MY MOMS HAD A CLIP ON THE ROD THAT WAS BROKE AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE DIAL TO SPIN WHICH THEN MAKES THE ICE MACHINE SCOOP THE ICE OUT OF THE BOX) CHECK THIS WHEEL TO SEE IF IT IS STILL IN TACT. THIS COULD BE YOUR PROBLEM.

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
