SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

SOURCE: no water to ice maker

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

    SOURCE: ice maker won't dump cubes

    the problem is that the tray doesn't eject the cubes, they get stuck and it just breaks them and only parts come out instead of the whole cube/crescent, then the proper amount of water comes in as refill, the tray gets too full and your problem begins. Take the unit out, then take the tray out, its's easy, and give it a light coat of Pam, olive oil or corn oil, the cubes will eject properly. It took me 3 years to figure this out, it willl amaze you.

    for everyone with the fan screech noise, replace the fan motor, don't buy the blade, look around the websites, I found it, my second replacement, for 28 but as high as 65.

    yeah I hate this fridge too

    SOURCE: GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer problem/ice dam in ice maker

    I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.

    Why won't the ice maker shut off even when I shut off the switch? The ice maker does not use a shut off arm or lever


    Ice Maker Doesn't Turn Off If your ice maker keeps making ice, even when it is full:
    1Lift the bail wireto shut off the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
    2If the problem persists,consider removing and replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

    Kenmore WR30X0318 Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice


    The ice maker uses a internal thermostat that starts the cycle of dropping the ice and refilling with tap water. If your water control valve works filling the ice maker then the problem is the ice maker itself that will need replaced. Unfortuantly the ice maker you have has no rebuildable parts and will need to be replace with a=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

    The automatic ice maker quit working, but first the water control valve hung up open [the refill cycle did not end]. Fortunately, I was nearby and when I looked into the ice maker I saw a slow flow of...


    I removed the wiring connectors from the two water control valves and when I reconnected the wires for the ice maker I heard the unit cycle. When I checked the ice maker, the ice maker shutoff arm was now completely down, operational position. Previously, I could see that the arm was up, but not at the top of the cycle. I'm not sure what caused the ice maker to cycle, but I am assuming that there was corrosion on the wiring connectors which was wiped off when unplugging/replugging the connectors.

    I have a kenmore side by side model # 51562101. it has stopped making ice cubes. we recently had a power outage and i believe it stopped making ice after this.


    2 things could be your solution. Either the cam gear behind the cover of your ice maker has a broken tooth/ or your water solenoid has gone bad.

    Ice maker not making ice


    I don't recommend repair on this unit. Simple replacement. Try to find Ice maker kit @ local home depot or lowes that is same. You can buy whole kit for $50-$75.00.
