New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is

We just had a new kenmore elite side-by-side refrigerator installed 24 hours ago. Everything is cool and running well except no ice has formed yet. Our water dispenser works but our ice dispenser is not. The IR seems to be working and the machine makes sound when we push the ice dispenser for ice but there's no ice to come out. How long is it supposed to take for ice to form and the dispenser to work?

Re: New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water...

Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)

No water coming from water dispenser.

It is possible the water control valve for that dispenser has failed and will not open. This happens a lot for those and the ice maker valves. All you need is the model number for your refrigerator and that will look like this for Kenmore. 213.564897 for example. and I will help you find the correct part number. Sea Breeze

It would not hurt the motor as they are built to be exposed to some degree of moisture if the defrost does not work i would check and see if something is jamming the actual mech. up. In my ice dispenser i had stuff fall in from the shelf's and seized up the motor. Any how if the thaw does not work check out a motor at (

I resolved the problem on my Kenmore Elite model 106.55616400 by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.
