SOURCE: Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice

When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

make sure the ice maker is turned on, push and hold the little round button on the front for 15 seconda and see if it starts up an cycles. Also check to make sure the fill tube isn't clogged to the ice maker and another thing to check is the water valve.

SOURCE: ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES

Hello margrek
Welcome,

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
company.
7• Discard stale ice.

Ice Maker fails on occasions to dump ice before water is dispensed


monitor the cycle as it is filling water does it over fill or is there a seepage that continue to drip, it could be the water valve. Also do you hear the tray making noise as it tries to dump the ice "the harvest cycle" try to watch it to see if it is a mechanical gearing problem

Why does water not shut off after making ice


Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.

Water freezing in tube to icemaker


Change the water control valve because it is not shutting off once the ice maker is full. The valve is sticking open slightly once power is off to water valve. What is the model number of your Kenmore Elite Model numbers for Kenmore most times look like this example=> 321.456789 Sea Breeze

My icemaker just stopped making ice today....please help


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

Kenmore by Whirlpool sxs water in the door. Ice maker 106.565424


The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Ice maker won't send water to unit. Solenoid is good


Make sure the fill tube where the water goes into the ice mold is not full of ice. Your old valve may have been leaking and it will freeze in the fill tube. Other than than maybe start the ice maker working by filling it with water and see if it dumps and refills.
You can swap the wires on the inlet valves and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know the valve works and the line is clear.

I have a kenmore 106.53593200 fridge the ice maker not making ice but i can feel its running


As long as your freezer will freeze water, your ice maker will make ice. All the ice maker does is supply the water, then dump the ice after it freezes.

So, that narrows it down to: 1) Either the ice cubicles are not filling with water, or 2) The ice is not dumping into the bin after it freezes.

To check for #1, you should be able to look into the ice cubicles to see if they're filled with water (or ice). If they are, go to #2. If not, you've probably got a defective water valve.

If the cubicles are full of ice or water, but don't dump out, the most likely culprit is the cubicle heater, which slightly heats the walls of the cubicles so that the ice can be more easily ejected into the bin. Unless you're VERY mechanically inclined, this is a job best left for an appliance repairman.

Ice maker sprays water into the ice storage bin


you need to remove the i/m from the freezer and make sure the "fill cup" doesnt have an ice blockage. thats where the water has to funnel into the mold. it can get a drip into the cup and then freeze in the cup. clear it out once and try it again, but if it happens once or twice again , then you might have to replace the water inlet valve.
