First, ensure that you have water connected to the intake tube at the back. The water filter needs to be checked also. It is in the cooling section(not the freezer), at the top. If it looks old or water does not flow, it will need replacing. Depending on the model, there is a switch inside the freeze section behind the ice tray. Turn that on, and ice should be available after a few hours. Some models don't have a switch, but a wire hanger, that needs to be in the down position for the ice maker to work.

My kenmore refigerator ice maker stopped making ice.


Could be that the solenoid that feeds water to the ice maker is not working properly.

Also make sure that the freezer temp is at least 10 degrees or less - if not the ice making cycle will not commence.

I have a Kenmore side by side, model # 106.57032601 that I bought 4 years ago. The ice maker suddenly quit working. The refigerator/freezer work fine otherwise and I continue to have water from the...


Is your ice tray filling with water? If not, then I would suspect the water inlet valve (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10657032601/0582/0165000/K0607002/00012?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=10657032601 - Item 10)

If it does fill with water, but does not eject the ice cubes to start a new cycle, I would suspect the ice maker motor(Item 37). BUT if it is the motor, that part costs $91.22 and you can replace the entire ice maker (Item 100) for $157.95

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.
