What is the model number?Here's a few helpful tips that may help you decide what to do. The rate at which a refrigerator cools depends on the ambient temperature. The warmer the ambient temperature, the longer it takes for the machine to reach its set point temperature. The relation to the ice maker is the ice maker thermostat. The ice maker thermostat needs to reach a set temperature and close to begin a harvest cycle. They can lose their calibration over time and it may take longer for it to close.

SOURCE: Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make

Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze

A refrigerator or freezer that is cooling, but cooling poorly, may have a problem in one of several areas.
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.
You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer.
Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.
Watch its operation more closely to see if any same symptom.

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.

Kenmore 56541 side by side icemaker nor making ice The in door water dispencer works Arm on tray is on no water getting to tray


1.Bad water valve located in the back bottom of refrigerator.
2. Frozen fill tube going into back of ice maker. (common problem)
3. Ice maker not cycling. Pour water into ice maker cavity until near filled.
Wait a few hours and see if it dumps.
4.In rare cases, the switch in the ice maker body fails. Ice maker will cycle but not tell water valve to refill.

Kenmore s/s 106.56536400 ice maker stopped working.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it dumps the ice but doesn't refill , replace the dual water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump the cubes , replace the ice maker . Also check to see that the coils under refrig are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc. Your water valve , has 2 main solenoids . One for the water dispenser , and , one for the ice maker .

No ice...different question


Are you able to see if you can push a Q-tip or something up the fill tube line to see if it's frozen up inside there. It happens on certain units. You may need to take the Ice Maker out (easy) to get to the fill tube.
