Question about Kenmore 53632 / 53634 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Icemaker We turned off ice maker to leave on vacation. When ice maker was turned back on it would not make ice. I don't think water is going to ice maker. Tubing doesn't seem to be frozen. The water on door is working and if water put in by hand ice will form.

Re: icemaker

Check the power conection to the ice maker. If that's ok, then I would think the solenoid that controls the water flow has gone bad. Unfortunately, you will likely have to replace the whole ice maker, I don't think they are reparable.

We shut the water off to our house while on vacation and now the ice maker won't work..did we burn up the motor? We didn't turn the icemaker off. Diana

I would check the water line coming from your house to the icemaker could be clogged. Sometimes when you turn off the water and later turn back on you can get debris in the line

Water doesn't enter ice maker tray

You probaby just have an air lock somewhere. Trace the tube to where it taps into the water pipe. Remove the hose and blow thru it.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Icemaker stuck in 'vacation mode'

Feel inside the ice slots are there any old cubes that have evaporated in time? Take the ice maker out and clean it up and place it back inside to see if it will fill with fresh water. Take a hair dryer and melt the old ice inside the slots and see if it will try to fill. I will wait for a response from you.

Freezer not making ice in Fridgidaire model PLH269ZDB2

There is a lever in the ice bin that detects when it is full. if that lever is locked in the"up" position, the maker stops making ice. Many times a previous owner or a shipper will turn off the icemaker this way. especially if the water to the home or freezer is turned off, so it won't keep trying to make ice.

Ice maker not making ice

1)First check you have a water line that is getting water to the ice maker.

2)Ice makers have a valve at the bottom that open and close when told by the ice maker replace that cheap fix.

3)The ice maker needs to be repaced.
(how far into the line will the water freezehow far into the line will the water freeze)
.The valve at the back opens and closes will not leave water in the line to freeze.

Icemaker will not was dispense ice

My icemaker stopped producing ice. We turned off the water line to it when we went on vacation for a week. We turned the water back on when we got home and since that time it won't produce ice. We can still get water from the door dispenser though.
