My kenmore 106.51133210 refrigerator is not making ice


Try filling the ice maker with tap water until the tray is full allow it to freeze turn on the ice maker and if after the water freezes it drops the ice into the ice container then replace the water control valve found at this link below
Water Inlet Valve WPW10341320

I have a Kenmore model number 106.51552104 my ice maker stopped making ice.. The water on the door still works but no ice what should I do??


I believe I answered this one on another page of unsolved problems HERE. Thanks for the model number. If the ice slots inside the ice maker are empty try pouring tap water in the slots and allow the water to freeze. If after the water freezes the ice drops into the ice bucket and the ice maker does not refill this would indicate that the side of the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve is defective on the side that controls ice maker water supply. If the ice maker just sits there and does nothing this would point to a defective ice maker. Depending what is wrong with the ice maker will determine what parts are replaced. Here is a list of those parts here=> Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.51552104 Ice Maker Parts and if need you may be able to find a complete ice maker replacement by asking. Most people don't like replacing ice maker parts. I am here should you have questions or comments, Sea Breeze

Our Marvel icemaker was working great then it starting making ice at a much slower pace. It is not make ice no where near as fast as it was. What could be the problem?


Could be a dirty condenser coil, blocked return air, if the ice machine is in a warm environment it takes longer to make ice, water temperature if it is warmer it will take longer to make ice. if water inlet valve is letting water seep buy during freeze cycle it will take longer to freeze.

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 isn't filling with water. Water is on and ice maker is on. It's been humid.


Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Kenmore side by side - icemaker seems to run too fast because the ice cubes are often hollow and they stick together in large clumps. Everything else in the freezer is frozen solid, so I know the freezer...


IF FREEZER IS A THE CORRECT TEMP/ O-10 DEGREES, THE FREEZER IS NOT THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A THERMOSTAT IN YOUR ICE MAKER, IT IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. IT IS A SMALL BI METAL SWITCH THAT TRIGERS ICE MAKER WHEN IT REACHES ITS PROPER TEMP. THE PROBLEM IS, IT IS TRIGERING IT AT TO LOW OF A TEMP.NOT ALLOWING THE ICE TO FREEZE SOLID. IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT CHANGE BIMETAL SWITCH OR CHANGE ICE MAKER ITSELF.
