I would go to a parts distributor for appliances and get one. Thats exactly what any appliance repair person would do, buy you an icemaker and charge you out the yinyang for labor to put it in. Very easy to do. Somebody at Sears dropped the ball by tellin you 600 bucks to replace when you can get the ice maker for less than 200 dollars.

The icemaker has stopped making ice and the reset function no longer works.


Hello;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Your ice maker has a control board, which I suspect is bad. This happens.
You did not provide a refrigerator model number which is located on a label on the inside liner wall of your fresh food section, so I do not know what you have.
I have a friend who called Sears Home Services for his ice maker. Sears charge him $440.00.
I have customer, same ice maker and problem. I charged him, $35.00 for the same ice maker and $30.00 to install.
Depending on the ice maker you may be able to install it yourself.
I need your refrigerator model number to help you.
Peter

Replaced icemaker with new one but still not working


The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs

Older Kenmore side by side, freezer warm....again!


"Fuzzy Ice on the back wall" yep, this sounds like a defrost system problem. You say you cleaned this fuzzy ice but, the real ice is behind that wall. I would get it fixed but call several service people and get a price. My guess is that once the defrost system is working then the Ice maker will work. If the freezer is not getting cold enough then the Ice maker won't work.

Now, the drain can cause a problem too but this is an easy fix. Pull out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look in the back under the cooling coils and you should see the drain hole. Keep this area clear of Ice and any thing else. Some tubing with a little air pressure will usually clear any blockage. A little hot water down that drain won't hurt. The water should drain to the a plastic pan under the Ref. Take the front grate off at the bottom of the Ref, look in the pan to make sure it went through.

This should be checked often, once a month or so.

there are many reasons why a ref stops working, you have not given any symptoms of what happened before it stopped working. The best solution is to call Sears and purchase a "service smart agreement" which will cover repairs up to $500 per repair for a year. there are other details to the agreement. the cost is about $240, but it's the best thing going.

Ice maker stopped working


I just had the same problem. You need to purchase a new motor module part numnber #8021515. I purchased mine at a Sears Service Center for 77.59. I installed it yesterday and again now have ice. Took about 10 mintutes to install. The tricky little part is removing the old one. Unscrew the three screws, and there is a white tab that needs to be pressed together (use tweezers) to remove the unit from the shut off arm.

Ice Maker problem


Apparently lowering the temperature by 5 degrees in the freezer compartment will keep the input water tube from freezing. It is working fine now!
