Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker stopped working

Water is not being delivered to the freezing tray. The "shut off" arm is in the correct "down" position to trigger the ice maker to operate but it will not work.

Thank you.

    We got a Kenmore Model 106.56589500 that wont make ice, but the water dispenser works just fine. It was a used fridge, so we dont have the manual.

If you will remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker take a look at the drive gear. see if the 2 center pins are still present this is a common problem one of the pins will break off causing the gear to pull loose and loose electrical contact for the icemaker motor. replacing the motor module partnumber 8201515 will fix your icemaker thanks for using FixYa Peyton

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.

On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.

Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Thanks

Ice maker not working, no water or ice dispensed.


Cause found to be faulty ice/water control board which is located at the back left hand side of the condensor behind the water solinoid valves.This is the single most expensive part of the ice maker!

Jenn-Air bottom freezer ice maker not working


I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!

Ice maker stopped making ice. I emptied ice holding tray and since then, if will not make ice. I adjusted arm in hole correctly. Arm is down and is in correct position to make ice. Still no ice. Please...


Fill the ice maker with water. If it freezes and dumps the the water control valve on rear of the refrigerator and near floor is defective and will need replace. If the water just freezes then the ice maker thermostat is the problem, Let me know,Thanks Sea Breeze

Kenmore Elite, Ice maker will not produce.


Try taking the ice despenser out and carefully melt any ice in the freezing tray. Sometimes the ice doesn't fully eject, leaving behind residue that will eventually become too full to produce ice. You can melt it by slow running hot water or hair dryer low speed.

Icemaker not producing ice


you need to troubleshoot the problem, if the wire arm that tells the ice maker to stop making ice when full is in the upright position the ice maker will not make ice. the problem has to be either the switch on this arm malfunction. but probably in MOST cases it is your electronic water valve which has gone out. this is located on the water supply line on the back of the fridge at the bottom probably behind some cardboard or plastic. it is the same kind of water valve as a dishwasher uses, if it malfunctions it will not deliver water to your tray, manually fill the tray and put the arm down, if the maker dispenses the ice out of the tray, chances are your electronic valve is broken.

Inoperative Ice Maker


The icemaker stops working because excessive water gets into the control box(where circuit board is housed) through the shaft hole of "finger" and freezes the wheels to turn the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". This stops to send the signal to open water valve.
To fix, remove the icemaker from the wall (need remove two screws - make sure power switch is OFF) and carefully separate the snap-on cable (retangular shape) and a ground cable on the bottom side of the icemaker. (Now you can remove the icemaker out of the refrigerator).
You can open the contol box (need unscrew one and carefully prop it open using a screw driver or a knife. You can unplug color corded snap-on cables for easiness to work (very simple).
You will see ice formed around the plastic gear wheel controlling the "ice-bucket-full detector rod". Remove all ice and dry all the parts in the box and put them back. Make sure all the cable are back to the matching color receptable(only fits in the right place). Connect the cable(rectangular shape) and connect the ground cable. Mount the incemaker on the wall using two screws you removed at first.
Turn the power ON and reset the system by press down the ice cube size selector until the "fingers" make a full cycle. You will see the metal rod moves up and down as system resets. During this cycle the water will be filled into the icemaker.
I believe this icemaker has a design flaw but it's very simple to correct the problem you are experiencing. You do not need much electronic or mechanical knowlege to fix this.
Best wishes
