? I don't believe there is a "Ice maker" filter just for the Ice. There is a water filter for both the icemaker and cold water (usually). Check your Owner's manual. Usually there is an option for water filter or no water filter. The no water filter option requires a "bypass" device to substitute for the filter, but of course the water is not filtered, unless you have an external water filter in the supply line to the refigirator. Hope this helps. Of course if you have no water supply, the Ice Maker will not make ice.
If the timer piece you are referring to is behind the square white cover, and it's moving slightly back and forth, you should visually check the ice making area it's self to see if the ejector fingers are jammed with ice, or against the ice stripper. Ice Maker jams can be caused by reduced water pressure to the unit mainly from the water filter, your water filter in the toe kick should be replaced at an interval of 6 months to a year, regardless of filter status light. When water pressure is low, not enough water fills the unit and the undersized cubes can become lodged or stuck in the ice maker while being ejected, equally so if there is an over fill situation caused by other failures the ice maker can't eject at all.

I have Kenmore Coldspot refreidgerator and am having a problem with water pooling inside the fridge at the bottom underneath the drawers (mostly the left side). Where is the water coming from and it formed a thin ice. Thanks
Make suer the freezer temp is 5 degrees or lower. If not the ice maker will not operate. Also make sure that you have water pressure at the back of the fridge. If so, you most likely have a bad water valve. It is what your water supply connects to. You can test it like this. Disconect the water line on the fridge side of the valve. Unplug the wires from the valve. Supply 110v to the plug. If water comes out from where you disconected the line, the valv is good. If not, you will need to replace it. If you can't find the answer with this. Reply back and I'll talk you through until we find it.

the arm that swing up and down maybe able to be ajst by bending arm and the water leaking down the icemaker. is it unlevel when if fills if not unlevel is it hooked up to an r/o system if it is when was the last time filter were replaced if not, does it have a water filter has it been changed lately.
Hi, The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed. If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.
