either the thermostat is bad or the heater isnt working. You could take the icemaker out and connect leads to the heater to see if it warms up or use an ohm meter to test the heater and thermostat. Also take the cover off and see if the cog wheel on the motor is broken.

Water valve is a dual valve. One for water, one for ice. Switch the wires to test.

SOURCE: need to connect the water line to the ice maker

Hi Joanna,
All you'll need is a 6' long piece of tubing. One that's got a 1/4" compression fitting on both ends. You can get one at a Home Depot or Lowe's (and you can see what I'm talking about here).

Install is a breeze. Just roll your fridge out enough so you can get behind it. Hook up one end of the tubing to the valve on the wall and the other end to the connector on the fridge (that should be near the bottom on the right side... but it could be on the left), tighten both connections really snug and turn the water on at the valve on the wall. <--- remember "righty tighty, lefty loosey". Then use a flashlight and look for any leaks (this is crucial, so take your time here). Look carefully at both connections and make sure they don't drip... watch them a minute or so each. After that, all you have to do is roll your fridge back and you're done!

Cool, huh?

SOURCE: ice maker seems to be dripping water onto ice in ice container

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Watch it when it fills with water. The fill tube could also be stopped up with ice. The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

SOURCE: Kenmore ice maker problem

the problem is an unlevel icemaker to prove this do you see little droplets of water freezing from the icemaker or a remote possibilty is do you have to an R/O system and have you change the filter if unit has one.

Does not make ice


Either the ice maker is not calling for water or the ice maker water valve is not working, there are many different types of water valves so its very dificult to tell you what to do without a model number or picture of the valve, but generaly speaking if you VERY CAREFULLY put 120V to a water valve it should open and alow water to flow, you can try this for the valve that has a water line going to the ice maker and see if it lets water go to the ice maker, sometimes there are two valves that must open, one main valve and then another for either the water dispensor or the ice maker. a better first test might be to test the water valve for resistance across the coil and compair it to another coil and see if its close-ish. also you can test some ice makers and see if they are putting 120V to the water valve by bypassing the bimetal and causing the ice maker to go into a cycle, but again a model number is required to know what kind of ice maker you have., even a picture would help

Kenmore Coldspot side by side ice maker not working, red lite bliking


Often I find your ice maker on the Kenmore side by side thefill tube frozen. The fill tube is ablack rubber hose located above and to the right of your ice maker. Simplypinch the tube to see if it frozen solid. If it is, use a hair dryer set onmedium to defrost the fill line. http://www.on-timeappliance.com/kenmorerefrigeratorrepairdallastx.html

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Testing the optics starts on page 25. You must follow the instructions verbatim as far as time lines or you will have to start the test over.
NOTE: There are 2 types of Optics. Pre 2002 and 2002 Optics. Make sure your performing that optic test that is a match for your unit.

Take a look at the charts on page 30. From here is appears that either the optics are blocked or
the emitter board has failed. Do the tests and follow the troubleshooting procedures to confirm this.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Ice maker not working on Kenmore Model # 106.54563300 Water comes through water dispenser fine Water came pouring out through ice dispenser door so I flipped bar up to turn it off Removed front box held in...


First the arm has to be in the down position. It sounds like you said theres water in the ice maker. If thats the case then it should have frozed. The ice cannot drop unless the ice maker heater comes on. Then the ice maker scoops the ice and drops into the resoviour thingy. If you have ice in the ice maker tray but no ice in the bucket then the ice maker is defective.

Hello. You will need to replace the icemaker. The swicth in the head is causing the arm to stay up and is not repairable. If you can get me the model number I can get you the part number.

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.
