Ice maker not working properly

I have a Kenmore fridge with a top freezer. The ice maker makes a few cubes of ice then starts shooting out water. The ice bin eventually turns into one big block of ice with a few ice cubes on top. Any ideas?
The refrigerator still looks brand new. The ice maker stopped working about 3 weeks ago.

icemaker model 106.9750613
type C20TFA96
sn# EF1321604
made 03/96

Make sure the fill tube going directly into the icemaker is not touching the part that receives the water, if it is touching the water will spray all over and not go into the cavity

Refrigerator icemaker repair


The ice maker does its own thang. All it needs is power and a good water valve to supply the water. Also you paid the water bill helps too. Anywho when the temp in the ice maker mold drops below 25f the harvest cycle begins. The mold heater is activated and loosens the ice. When the ice starts moving the heater shuts down and the motor carrys over and drops the ice. The ice maker then asked for and gets water from the water valve. So what goes wrong? Watervalve solenoid burnt out, water valve dripping like a faucet make a stalagmite in the fill tube blocking fresh water to ice mold. If that is ok then something inside the icemaker went haywire, replace it. When replacing the ice maker replace the watervalve. Note: if temp inside icebox freezer does not get to 25f any ice maker new or existing ain't gonna make ice. Be sure to clean the coils down by the compressor and the kickplate so the maximum amount of airflow is running down there and make sure the cardboard panel back there is in place.

Freezer works but the fridge area is not cool


Remove the bottom plastic liner on the freezer and look midways ont the backside for the hole where the drain is. If it has a slabe of ice over it unplug the freezer and let it thaw out. This will take a day or 2 to fix so have the food transfered elsewhere. After thaw out clear the drain. Remove the rear panel and check the fan operation. At that point if the fan is operating you can put the panels back on and wsee if clearing the drain is the problem. If it happens again in a few weeks then either the heater is bad or the defrost thermostat is bad. When either one of these go out the timer still goes into defrost but the heat does not. So what water dribbles down in them 21 minutes tends to pool up and freeze over. The evaporator gets clogged . The refrigerator has a blizzard up in the freezer and nothing happening below even though the fan is blowing full blast shaboom!

How to diagnose ice maker does not produce ice


The first thing to check is to make sure that the temperature in the freezer is below 10 degrees F. If not the ice maker will not work because the sensor in it won't allow it to call for water. If the temperature is good, check to see if there is ice in the ice maker.If there is and its not dropping ice then more than likely the mold heater which allows the ice to break free and thus be ejected has gone bad and you need to replace the ice maker. If no ice is there check the fill tube to make sure there is no obstruction, and if not turn the ice maker off, wait a minute, then turn it back on, When you do that a small amount of water should initially come in. If it doesn't then the water valve itself has failed. Also a note, check the water filter to make sure its not old, this too will also cause water not to come into the machine but you'll notice this also in the water dispenser area as well.

My refrigerator is not freezing properly only the bottom of the freezer. the fridge part is only cool and also the icemaker is not making ice. help!


The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

I have a Kenmore Elite Side by Side about 6yrs old. It is working (fan is running, lights are on) just not producing chilled air. Any Thoughts?


Check that the condenser is not iced up and check that the air ducts are not iced up. Easiest way is to deforest the s/s entirely. If the Fridge is the problem and the freezer is OK then also check the electric shutter valve at the rear top of the fridge compartment on the side next to the freezer. This is where the cold air is sent into the fridge compartment by the cooling fan and air ducting. These do have a tendency to ice up and then breakdown so they stay shut and the Fridge keeps warm or they stay open and the fridge ices up and freezes the contents. Contrary to beliefe these types of FF are not totally frost free.

Freezer does not make ice. Kenmore Elite


This could be either your water valve or you need a new ice maker. The water valve is less expensive than the ice maker, so either get them both or start out by replacing the valve. Call or email us with the model number and we'll be sure to get the right part out to you. Hope this solves your appliance repair issue.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Frigidare ice maker making slabs of ice, not cubes


Today, I removed ice maker and auger motor. Found out this morning that water was running down the back of frig. inside, everything in freezer was frozen together. Found this out after removing all food from freezer. When i looked into the ice maker where water enters, that was frozen solid. After thawing and checking everthing. I put it back together in freezer. It is nine oclock now, and I do have cubes. I really can't tell you what I did, except thaw it all out. It's been running for four hours now and it seems to be all right.
