Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I solved my own problem and want to share with others.
After replacing the motor i watched the harvest cycle for a few hours. Noticed small cubes and ice getting caught in fingers during the ejection process. I removed the 40$ water filter (units with pull out filter will function just fine without it. it's in the manual) and that increased the flow 100% so no more small cubes but i then noticed the one cube getting stuck in the fingers in the same place but not too much to keep the unit from working. I re-leveled the fridge and from then on all cubes dropped each time

SOURCE: Ice Maker
Charles, these models have a habit of the inlet tube freezing over. Make sure the black tube feeding the trough is clear. You may want to disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through it. I use hot water in a baster to clear them all the time. Another thing is to check the optics. When opening the freezer door the red optic light on the right should flash 2x with a pause repeatedly. When you close the left hand emitter flapper the light should stay on. If it does this your optics are good. Because of these optics the new ice-maker has to be jumped started into a cycle. Once started you can monitor the fill. Catriver..post back.

yea! I have been without cubes for 2 years. I slid out the tray, found the lever in the back where the rod went in, pulled it down, reinserted the ice tray, and IT WORKED! At first I thought I broke the lever, because I had to hold it down with a knife while I was inserting the tray, but it just must have been stuck. I am soooo happy!

If your unit is not ejecting the first question is what temperature is it at? It should be 10 - 15 degrees. If the thermostat is set too cold it would never satisfy the thermostat and that is what it needs to harvest the ice. But when you say it keeps cycling do you mean the ejector blade keeps spinning? If it does then the thermostat is stuck in harvest mode.

The problem is actually not the ice maker itself. The problem is the electric solenoid valve in the rear bottom of refrigerator. If you follow the water line on the back of the unit down to the bottom and replace the valve that it is connected to then your problem will be solved. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.
