Question about Kenmore 55693 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My sears refrigerator has an ice maker that will not shut off

It appears that the metal arm is connected but has no effect on the ice maker. If I lift it it will not stay up nor will the motor stop cranking.
Any thoughts on what to check for?
model 106.74962400 bought January 2005, with the acceler ice maker.

You will have to remove the icemaker from the freezer so you can see if the plastic is broken that holds the arm in position.

Kenmore 106.55242400 ice maker knocking noise


most likely you need a new ice maker,one thing that could do this is the white arms that spin around when dumping the ice,sometimes one of the arms bend and jam the ice maker and you'll hear that knocking soundthe arm gets bent,the ice cube gets stuck because the arm can't push it out,,it stops the motor from spinning through it's full cycle and damages it but this is just a guess from something i've seen happen but most likely you need a new ice maker,one other i've seen is the metal arm that you can lift up to shut off the ice maker gets knocked out of the hole it slides into.if you pop off the white cover and get a jumper wire and stick it into the h and t holes you can jump start the ice maker.http://appliantology.org/gallery/image/659-manual-harvest-on-a-whirlpool-modular-ice-maker/

It may be the arm in the ice maker is down. Even though the ice maker does not have the water hooked up if the arm above the ice bin is down it will still cycle the ice maker try lifting up the arm it should stay up this signals the ice maker that the bin is full and should shut off the ice maker. Hope this helps.

good day,
Sub Zero makes both a wire device and on some models a round rubber device that slides over the ice level arm. If you don't have one on your model, call your local appliance parts house and check with them. The wire model just clips on, the rubber style has a **** in it. The purpose is to shut the ice maker off before it becomes too full, causing your problem.

Amana bottom freezer, model abc2037dts, there is a motor noise that goes on for 8 seconds then shuts off, then a few clunks for 2 seconds


Even if you do not have the water hooked up for the dispenser and ice maker, the fridge still makes the sound as if it is filling up the ice maker. If you lift the metal arm beside the ice maker, the sound stops happening because it thinks that the ice bucket is full.

Ice maker overfilling


OK i took a look at the ice maker. this has a shut off arm. i am guessing it always shut off automatically when you 1st had it right? but now it just makes too much ice. does it still do it if you lift the shut off arm up? if you lift it up and still makes to much ice then replace ice maker. (wait a couple of days)
if it stops making ice then just shut it off every other day thanks

We are hearing a sound like a clock buzz every 10 minutes. why


If your frig has a factory installed Icemaker and you never hooked it up to your water in your house, the Ice maker is looking for water. Shut off the ice maker by lifting up the metal arm on the ice maker. or unplug it.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF


On the ice makers on refridgerators unless the ice in the bucket is high enough to raise the arm on the icemaker it will not shut off. Most people lift the arm up when they see the bucket full. I have the side by side Whirlpool model and on mine if I don't raise the arm the ice will fall out the bucket before it will raise the arm high enough.
