    When you open either one of the doors, do you feel suction, making it hard to open? Open the refrigerator door, then close it. wait 3 seconds then open the door again. There should be suction that wants to hold the door shut.

I have a kenmore elite 106.57709.701 frige that the ice maker does not work. The door as well as the interior ice maker. The door does not rotate and the ice maker is not making any ice.


It appears your ice maker timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Removing door handles


Charlene,

You need to use a small allen wrench. There are small holes on the top and botton side of each door handle and underneath on the right and left side of the freezer handle. Just insert the proper size allen wrench in each hole and unscrew the handles.

Regards,

Ann

Kenmore refrigerator 5260 not cold


  • the defrost timer on your machine is actually integrated within a control board/air diffuser. hopefully that is not the problem (expensive).
  • i would start by testing the heater and bimetal thermostat in the freezer. (note: the bimetal thermostat will only have continuity when below 40 degrees.)
  • the heat you feel between the doors is normal (if it is not too hot). 
  • some of the heat that is released by the machine is intentionally released between the doors to prevent condensation.
  •  if it seems warmer than usual then you might need to clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow under the machine is not obstructed at all. 
  • if the coils are dirty then they will not be able to release the heat properly and the heat will be released in other areas like between the doors.
