Kenmore side by side w/icemaker extended power outage

Hello,
I have a Kenmore side by side with icemaker. It must be about 10 years old. Recently we had a storm and were without power for week. I did have a generator, but had problems with it going of and on.
Now that the power is back on everytime the fridge comes on but will not stay on. After a while the GFCI plug that is near by goes out and all power in the kitchen is lost. Once it is reset everything is fine for a while but once the fridge is plugged in again something pops and the fridge goes off. Any suggestions? I need to get food, but I don't want to until I know it is all set.

Threre may be something shorted inside of the refrigeratoer because the gfci is tripping out. and or when the compressor tries to come on the start components are weak and it draws too much amperage. Either way you are going to have to call a serveice professional. Thanks For using Fixya. and Merry Xmas!!!

Kenmore side by side icemaker not working after power outage, but water at door dispencer


Pull the machine out and remove the lower back cover. Locate the water valve. With the water turned on and connected remove the 5/16" water line (the bigger one) and then have someone else press the water in the door. If the cylinoid is operating correctly it should spray water out. If it is not operating properly it should at least hum and vibrate. If that does not occur your problem lies elsewhere. As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. You can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked m and the other in the cicle marked n. Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Also check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.

Not cooling or freezing, can hear the motor running and electricity to getting to it, but melted everything and hot inside. 10 year old side by side icemaker


Hello there..your problem seems to eminate from either a failed compressor...or an internal gas leak....the compressor may be running but unable to pressurise the system....however the most likley cause is an internal gas leak....generally not repairable at 10 yrs old i would advise replacement

Kenmore side by side Mod#10657567790. No water to Icemaker. I am getting water to water disp. but none to icemaker. Changed out solenoid still no water to ice.


Hello. It sounds like the icemaker is bad. It is not the solenoid but the fact that the icemaker head is not requesting the water.

Icemaker dont work after power outage


Make sure the ice bail wire is not lifted. If it is, the ice maker will not make ice.

The water valve may have failed to. It's in the bottom back of the refrigerator, and the water line normally connects near where the valve is.

Let me know what you find.

Kenmore Icemaker


check inside the ice maker are the forks pointing up or down if they are down them the module on front of ice maker is broken it needs to be repl, but you said is 8 years ol d so i would repl the whole ice maker since the mold might be peeling off due to age they only last like 4 years or so
