Question about Kenmore 73262 / 73264 / 73269 Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have a 8 yr old Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator with an icemaker inside top freezer. It stopped processing ice cubes. It doesnt appear to have ice in tubes. Is there a quick fix? If not, is it easy to remove so I dont get complaints from tenants that ice maker doesnt work. Rather not have an icemaker since once a few years ago the tube on back of refrigerator got pinched and causd a flood down to first floor .......thanks

SOURCE: Ice is not ejecting
Sounds like the icemaker thermostat is opening too soon which turns the heater off. The easiest thing to do is replace the whole ice maker which I have seen pretty cheap on ebay. If you want you can test these part with an ohm meter. Check the heater for resistance. If it is ok then replace the module and thermostat.

SOURCE: Ice maker not making ice.
These Icemakers have plastic gears on the modules that are breaking, also some have thermostats that are malfunctioning. I recommend haveing an experianced tech look at the unit to see if you need the new upgraded indoor ice maker.

In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck firstname.lastname@example.org

SOURCE: Ice maker is working very slowly
This is usually caused by low water pressure from the water supply or a clogged strainer in the water inlet valve where the water supply comes in.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. + is more water.

restricted water flow or pressure from house water where your taped into. your shut off or Tap a line may be cloged or if you have a water filter its cloged. It could also be a bad water valve in rear of refrig. start at the sourse of water and work back to frig. A rare thing could be that the timing gear on the ice maker is burnt and not trigering valve long enough to fill icemaker
