Question about Kenmore 56549 / 56542 / 56544 / 56546 Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi Tech Master,
The ice maker stops working. I checked the mold is empty (no water); however, the water dispenser still dispenses cold water. The freezer temperature has been always 4 as the factory setting. The ice sensor is red and flashing.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Check to see if there inlet water is frozen up where it goes into the ice maker. If it is you will have the thaw it out before it will work correctly. the water dispenser solinoid valve ane the icemakers feed different lines thats whay you have cold water and no water feeding into the ice maker.Thanks for using FixYa and don't forget to rate this response.

he 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. http://www.repairclinic.com/0088_4_1.asp#Level1_10
