Kenmore ice maker

I have a kenmore refrigerator and the ice maker just stopped working. It is an older one with the ice maker in the actual freezer (not in the door like the newer ones). I checked the water and it is flowing into the fridge, but no ice. I touched the bottom of the ice maker and burnt myself (blistered) - extremely hot. I just unplugged the fridge and then disconnected the electrical connection from the fridge to the ice maker. Any ideas what would cause this? Should I just replace it?

If the ice ejector (the plastic part) is pointed down and not pointed between 10 and 3 o' clock the ice maker motor has failed or somethin is binding. Replacing the ice maker is probably the best bet.

Kenmore elite - top freezer


if there is ice build up at the back wall of the freezer section, then you have a problem with your defrost cycle. the freezer would not be very cold for the ice maker to work.

it's either your timer, defrost heater or your bi-metal.
