Question about Kenmore 53852 / 53854 / 53859 Side by Side Refrigerator
Just replaced water filter. Now whenever you open the refrigerator door the light for accelerate ice flashes and beeps. How can I stop it? What is it trying to tell me?
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 email@example.com

I have what appears to be a similar problem -- but have not yet found a solution. The door or valve on the ice dispensing chute is not closing or sealing properly. The warm air from the kitchen is drawn into the freezer (ice maker). The warm air condenses and freezes causing the ice cubes in the ice bin to freeze together, preventing their discharge from the bin. Also, the warm air and condensation freezes and builds up frost and ice in the discharge chute. When you try to discharge ice cubes, they get stuck in the chute and will not discharge.
Temporarily, you can open the freezer door, access the ice bin and loosen the cubes which are frozen together. You can also remove any cubes from the discharge chute. If there is frost and ice in the discharge chute, use a hair dryer to melt the frost and ice, putting a container under the dispenser in the door to catch the run-off water.
I've done all of the above and I'm still not getting a proper seal and air is still getting into the ice maker bin and dispensing chute. Looks like a service-call is next.

Most likely the water control valve on back of the refrigerator near floor or the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. You can fill the ice maker with water from tap and see if it cycles one time or you can check the control valve solenoid that feeds water to the ice maker. Click on link below and then paste your model number in model search feature. That takes you to a page with breakdown photos of the parts I mentioned. On the left of your screen click on photo # 12.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.
