Hi!!! make sure your icemaker filling tube is not blocked with ice.its where the water comes into the icemaker .it can freez on you.put a hair dryer on to the filling tube and icemaker for 30 minutes. Also you can jump start the icemaker by putting a jumper wire show in this picture .If no ice then go to the back your frig and change your water valve ..

SOURCE: Kenmore 19 Porcelain Plus (26 years old) with ice

Good day,
In that era they made 2 types of ice makers. If yours is the type that makes half moon ice cubes then it can be repaired.
You have to remove the ice maker. 3 screws and a wire plug. unsnap the front plastic cover. Remove the large plastic gear. You will see 4 screws one on each corner. Remove the screws and lift the plate away from the body. The ice maker must be pointed up.
You will see a small microswitch, on the right side. It has failed.
The switch is universal and most appliance houses will have a replacement.
I have made it sound simple, but it can posse problems since there are a lot of alignment issues in reassembling it. If your handy at this sort of thing you'll be O.K.

If the icemaker is the style that has a large plastic tray that the cubes are formed in, then that is another issue, and should be handled by someone who knows the icemaker.

Some appliance parts houses have someone who can perform these repairs, but unfortunately, the second style when removed, will shut the machine down completely.

Thanks for using FixYa

Not recommended, but if you must, set it upright but don't plug in for 2 days so all fluids and oil can settle back into the compressor

My Kenmore Elite Trio Fridge is leaking water from under the front of the machine. It is not the water connection. Do you know what the problem might be?


Your defrost drain tube is probably clogged with ice or something. Defrost your refrigerator (put towels around to soak up any excess water), then after it's defrosted, take off the back, lower panel and look for a 1 inch diameter tube coming down from your refrigerator. Remove it and clear out any blockages and then re-assemble everything.

Good luck!

I have a side by side Kenmore fridge, model# 106.53532300. The ice maker has stopped making ice all of a sudden. Everything else works fine.


Ice makers do go bad and it is inevitable. Check the ice maker connection and make sure that all is in order. If all seems okay and the ice maker does not work, replace it.

Ice Maker Stopped working


Hello, I don't know if this will help because the model I have is a 106.565(32)400. I have had my ice maker stop working many times because the fill tube was iced up. After about the 8th or 9th time that it did this I decided that I had to find a solution. What I came up with was that the door in front of the ice maker was keeping the tube too cold and making it freeze up. I removed the door to see if was correct. It never froze up again but the ice would fall out sometimes if you had the door open and it was in the dumping cycle. Then I drilled several 1/2" holes in the ice maker door and reinstalled it. I have had no more problems for over a year.

Ice maker stopped working


I have the same problem with my whirlpool every once in a while, and I found out that if I run a hot air dryer at the back of the fridge where the water tube comes in and along the ice maker it loosens everything up. I think that for some reason the water freezes in the tube somehow and prevents a full cycle. When I am using the hair dryer i can feel the frozen ice come sliding out of the tube. Also I know when I am getting close to thawing everything out when the ice maker runs through a cycle while I am blowing the hot air on it. Good luck.

Refridgerator freezer GE


Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING Kenmore cold Spot model# 106.55536400


Most common problem is a broken ice maker module.  Should also replace ice maker thermostat when changing the module.  Make sure fill tube isn't frozen first. If you take the ice maker out pull off the plastic cover and in the center of the wheel that kind of looks like a gear there are two little plastic studs.  If one is broke or they are pressed together then the module is bad. Make sure to replace the thermostat along with some silicone grease because a bad thermostat is what causes the module to break.

Whirlpool icemaker


I changed the filter and it stopped making ice. I finally discovered that the rubber fill spout had frozen somehow. I heated the tube with my wife's hair dryer and the top of the fridge just above the tube. A pencil sized chunk of ice fell out of the tube and it started making ice again.
