Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
Ice maker stopped working but water is still dispensed through the door
Check the head of the icemaker and see if the gear is broken on the module

check the mirco-switches behind the panel at the dispenser section. basically, when you depress the lever for water or ice, those levers make contact with a switch, and the switch turns on the ice dispenser motor. if the lever is pushed too hard, the switch can be knocked out of position. I had to re-position my ice switch with some duct tape.

Found out we still had a warranty/service contract on it. Contacted SEARs and I explained problem to technician. Scheduled house call is Friday.

Probably a broken plastic tube from the solenoid valve to the water outlet tube. It will stay dry until you try to get water then it may take a few days to dry out.

I had the same problem with our Whirlpool Gold. Which by the way was just out of warranty. The guy who repaired the problem told us that since there were so many replacement dispenser motors at different supply locations that there must be a problem. I think that the root cause is the arm in the ice holder is hard to move, and it burns the dispenser ( #2252130) motor out. Whirlpool should get to the bottom of this and offer free or reduced repairs. Motor # 2252130

If the optics seem ok. you might need a new ice maker. If the coating on the mold is peeling you need a new icemaker. But if it is ok. You can change the module. To change the module remove the cover on icemaker front. Of course you must remove the icemaker first. then when you remove the cover you will see 3 screws remove them. and the module comes off. reverse the order to finish the job. hope this helps
