Question about Refrigerators
I have a kenmore 106.552444000 side by side, I've found that the ice maker on the unit has always been very, very slow to make ice. Is there a way to adjust the speed. The ice it does make is very frozen and I think speeding it up a bit would not cause problems. Thanks so much for your help ..

J, sounds like your dispensor flapper is not closing properly and you are drawing warm air up into the ice bucket. This model had an issue where the flapper pin holder was part of the housing and would break off. They have a kit now that fixes that problem. The only other thing it could be would be low freezer temps or it's staying in defrost too long. With out being there, I would start with the dispensor flapper. Check it out and post back.. Catriver.

SOURCE: Ice Maker too slow
bayfishr, I'll try to give you an idea on how this thing works and let you do some checks. The cycle is controlled by temp. The harvesting process begins when the IM thermostat closes signaling the harvest temp has been reached. The closed thermostat supplies power to the IM motor and heater. Therefore the colder you keep it, the faster the production unless something has failed. I see a lot of heaters fail. You can test this. When the IM starts it cycle, test the voltage from L to H on the module,they will be marked. Should read 120V. The heater on the bottom of the mold should be getting hot. Disconnect the harnes and ohm it. Should ohm out at approx 72 ohms, same test points. If this checks good, check the center wheel on the module itself. Two clips keep the wheel in place. If one is cracked off, the IM will not fucntion properly. Other than colder temps, there is no way to adjust the speed of the cycle. Keep the flap in front of the ice-maker down so that the cold air is drawn across that IM. Catriver.

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?
