Ice maker problem

The ice maker on my Kenmore side by side with the ice in the door, make ice but the ice hangs up before dropping. I can manually push it down but it is frozen into the tray. When it does work it takes forever and the ice comes out deformed, like it has a tail. Any suggestions?

I also have this problem.  The ice that was hanging, when looking in the freezer was the right side ice.  I just releveled the frig or increased the height of the side that was hanging causing the water to level.  It has cut down on the amount of ice or times the ice hangs.

My icemaker stopped working but the water on the door still works what can the problem be model number 106.51552104

Thanks for the model number. If the ice slots inside the ice maker are empty try pouring tap water in and allow the water to freeze. If after the water freezes the ice drops into the ice bucket and the ice maker does not refill this would indicate that the side of the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve is defective on the side that controls ice maker water supply. If the ice maker just sits there and does nothing this would point to a defective ice maker. Depending what is wrong with the ice maker will determine what parts are replaced. Here is a list of those parts here=> Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.51552104 Ice Maker Parts and if need you may be able to find a complete ice maker replacement by asking. Most people don't like replacing ice maker parts. I am here should you have questions or comments, Sea Breeze

How do you remove the ice maker in side by side kenmore refrigerator, the kind with dispenser in the door. It won't turn to release the ice, and has a solid block of ice in it now.

Most ice makers hangs on the wall with three screws. two at the top and one at the bottom. Just loosen these screws and the ice maker will lift off the bracket and you can then reach the wiring harness to unplug it.

Kenmore Galaxy Ice Maker Not Making Ice

Sounds like you have a bad water valve. It will have a dual water valve on the back where the water connects to the unit. You can take the wire plugs and swap them around. Then push the water in the door leaver. hold it for around 4 sec. Then see if the ice tray has water in it. If it does, you have a bad valve. If not you ice make is bad, turned off or the freezer is not cold enough to operate. ( It has to be 5degrees or lower before the ice maker will try to operate)
Please rate this solution if it helps. Thanks

Ice maker doesn't make ice. Won't refill w/ water. But water still dispenses via the door. Perhaps it has something to do w/ the wire hanging over the ice bin. It all is still intact....

possible that the 'wire' hanging over the ice bin has been 'pushed up' to where it is in 'shut off' mode. Usually the wire drops to allow water to fill for ice cubes. then rises back up on its own, but not all the way. I had a side-by-side and one of my kids pushed up the wire not realizing they just turned off the ice maker. Other than that, check for a frozen line or pinched/clogged line and let me know what happens. :)

Kenmore Ice Maker not dropping ice

Sounds like the arm which determines if ice bucket is full is hanging up on something. Does this arm move up and down freely? If not, you just need to replace the complete ice maker.
