Question about Kenmore 53552 / 53554 / 53559
My Kenmore Coldspot, Model 53552201, ice maker will not make ice. I have replaced the optics but it still not making ice. I have installed jumper between T and H on module but nothing happens. I measured for voltage across L and N and got nothing, but I had 120 volts at the plug where it snaps into module. What do I do next as far as troubleshooting or do I need to replace the whole module?

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

Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

Hi, While you had the ice maker out, did you notice if there was ice in the inlet spout to the ice maker. Sometimes they get plugged.
Do you know if the ice maker advances at all?
Because you have voltage to the ice maker, if it does not advance you will need to replace the ice maker.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
