Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
The ice maker is making noises yet no ice is produced.
Checked the water supply line from home water and it is providing water to the solenoid(?) located on the bottom of the frig. The water supply line to the freezer was pulled off and checked for a clog. It was clear. Left it unattached and directed it to a bucket to see if the solenoid would allow the water to pass. No water passed into the bucket after hours. Do I need a new solenoid?
You've either got a bad timer on the ice maker or the water valve is defective. You need to verify that the timer is moving first. If it isn't try pushing in on the dial on the end of the ice maker. It is under the white square cover at the end of the ice maker, usually towards the door, but in some units it points to the left side wall. If it begins to run when you do that, then the timer is broken. If not then I would say that the valve is defective.
