I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator-Freezer. The ice maker stopped making ice. There is an "off-On" switch in the freezer along with a red light. The light keeps blinking. Can you give me...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Here is a Job Aid that will help you:$FILE/4322658A.pdf

Testing the optics starts on page 25. You must follow the instructions verbatim as far as time lines or you will have to start the test over.
NOTE: There are 2 types of Optics. Pre 2002 and 2002 Optics. Make sure your performing that optic test that is a match for your unit.

Take a look at the charts on page 30. From here is appears that either the optics are blocked or
the emitter board has failed. Do the tests and follow the troubleshooting procedures to confirm this.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Not making ice!

Try removing it and let the ice thaw. The mechanism for the rake to push out the ice can freeze up.

Sounds like the IM heater stuck on that's the only thing that would have melted liner. Check the optics open the freezer door and push the flapper on the right side back and look for a green light if it's on solid optics are ok if there is no light or flashing replace the emitter and receiver

Ice maker not making ice. red light on control panel blinking twice.

Remove the ice bucket and inspect the ice maker for an ice cube stuck in the ejector. Hit it with a little heat of a hair dryer till it gets loose and the ice maker starts rotating. Replace the ice bucket. See if it starts making ice again amigo.

Ice maker not making ice

The most likely cause is the water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out (beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control.

Ice maker repair and still no ice

Amyc, of course you should call this cat back, but here are a few things to check. Make sure that the fill tube is not frozen over. The black tube feeding water to the IM. Next with the freezer door open your optics should flash twice with a pause repeatedly. Hold the left side emitter flap down and the light should be on steady. If this checks, the optics are good. The ice maker rakes should be at the 2:00 position when it's in it's home positon. Any other position could be a bad module. When the cat comes back to check it out, make sure he jumps the ice-maker to get the unit to fill before he back.
