Ice maker not making ice

I just received a used Kenmore Elite refrigerator. The freezer is on the bottom and this is also where the ice maker is. The filtered water inside the door is working, but the ice machine isn't. Is there a reset button or a separate water line that has to be connected? What do I do?

    I've had my kenmore fridge for about 3 years now. We recently had a water softener installed in our home. I was reading the owners manual and it said that could cause the ice maker to stop working. Has anyone else had this same experience?

    about six weeks ago I started finding ice that was apparantly dripping out of the freezer maker. Then suddenly the ice maker would not stop making ice, we had to dump out the ice bin regularly so it would not overflow. After about three days of that it stopped altogether. It no longer makes ice.

Yes, there is 2 lines, one for the water and the other for the ice. you can take the back lower panel behind the frige and take a look at the water line coming from the house where it connects to the frige, you can disconet the line that goes to the freezer, and put the line inside of a container of about 1 litter, and waite for about 30 minutes it at to have some water inside just enough to fill the ice maker. if you donot get any water, replace that valve.

Well, that wire is likely the cause of your issue, somebody probably bent it, and now it gets caught on the door or a basket or a food item or what have you, and since it cannot move, the ice maker will not make ice.

Kenmore freezer on the bottom. Ice-maker switch is turned on but no ice is being made?


Check your incoming water line for kinks. Make sure the water valve is turned on.
Replace the water filter.
Check inside the freezer and make sure the ice maker power cord is plugged in.
