Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
I had this problem on a refrigerator with an automatic icemaker. Where the water line attaches to the source pipe is a Self-Piercing Tap valve (sometimes called a vampire tap, or a saddle valve). The hole that this device made to feed the freezer was not allowing sufficient flow during the fill cycle of the icemaker.
I had to turn off my water and trace the water line that feeds my refrigerator back to the water source. I then disassembled the valve, enlarged the hole in the water pipe slightly, and reassembled. Turn the water back on and check for leaks. The trick is to enlarge the hole just enough to deliver the need water, but keep it small enough so the saddle valve can seal the junction.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working
I have a whilpool Model # ED5FHXC001A side by side Energy Saver refridgerator. It was purchased late in 2006. It's not making and dropping ice. Any ideas what the problem may be? Thanks

SOURCE: Ice Maker not Getting Water
There are two solenoid-operated water valves - one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. They're located near the water connection at the back of the fridge. There is no pump; the water pressure sends water to the icemaker whenever this valve is opened by the icemaker controls. Your symptoms sound like the coil is burned out on the valve. You can check it by disconnecting the wires and checking for coil continuity with an ohmeter. If the coil is open, replace the valve. Both valves might be combined into one assembly, so be sure you test both coils. Of course it's also possible that the trouble is in the icemaker itself, but a failed intake valve is more likely.
