Hi!!! make sure your icemaker filling tube is not blocked with ice.its where the water comes into the icemaker .it can freez on you.put a hair dryer on to the filling tube and icemaker for 30 minutes. Also you can jump start the icemaker by putting a jumper wire show in this picture .If no ice then go to the back your frig and change your water valve ..

Ice maker stopped working suddenly. model no 106.56646500. Water is getting to the door but not coming out of the tube to the ice maker.


If you are sure the tube is not frozen the replace water valve. Also put 120v to the freezer water valve side to so if water goes up to the ice maker.

Ice maker does not produce ice, it was clogged with ice. so i fixed that . the tube coming down from the top was what was clogged frozen . red light is flashing twice repeatadly. need info to fix. thank...


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

Kenmore side by side: ice maker works...ice


Probably a broken plastic tube from the solenoid valve to the water outlet tube. It will stay dry until you try to get water then it may take a few days to dry out.

Good Luck,

KENMORE ICE MAKER DOESN'T WORK. WORKED WHEN IT WAS NEW. NO WATER.NO PUMPING NOISE.


Good day,
The first step is to check the ice maker.
Pour water in the cavity of the ice maker until near full. Turn ice maker on and close freezer door and wait 2 hours. If it dumps ice then you can exclude the ice maker. If no action, and the water is still frozen in the cavity the ice maker must be replaced.

If the ice dumps then follow these steps.....
You want to check the water supply line to the machine from the house supply.
I prefer to shut the whole house down with the shut off valve at the meter. Disconnect the water line to the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. Point the open end of the water line into a bucket, and while watching have someone turn the water to the house on for a 10 to 15 second count. Water should come out of the line forcefully. If not replace the line and it's connecting valve.

If water supply is good, then replacing the water valve itself should solve your problem.

P.S. In rare occasions, the file tube from the back of the refrigerator to the inlet of the rear of the ice maker can build up with ice. You have to remove the ice maker to check this. If there is ice in this tube you have to melt it out.
However, caution using heat, as from a hair dryer ect. Heat from these devices can do a lot of damage to the hose and other plastic components in that area.

Water dispenser fine but ice maker not working


Hi. A good way to check the ice maker water solenoid valve is to swith the wire lead from the dispenser water solenoid valve to the ice maker water solenoid valve. Now push the water dispenser lever and water should come out your ice maker fill tube. If not, either the fill tube is frozen or the ice maker water solenoid valve is bad. Take the 1/4 inch tube that runs up the back of your freezer off at the ice maker water solenoid valve and blow thru it. If you can't, the tube is frozen. If you can, the valve is bad. Good luck, Mack

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING Kenmore cold Spot model# 106.55536400


Most common problem is a broken ice maker module.  Should also replace ice maker thermostat when changing the module.  Make sure fill tube isn't frozen first. If you take the ice maker out pull off the plastic cover and in the center of the wheel that kind of looks like a gear there are two little plastic studs.  If one is broke or they are pressed together then the module is bad. Make sure to replace the thermostat along with some silicone grease because a bad thermostat is what causes the module to break.
