Question about Kenmore Elite 31 cu. ft. Grab-N-Go Bottom-Freezer French-Door

1 Answer

Kenmore elite 31 ft model 72052. Ice maker in door. Doesn't work. No water even though it is supplied. Filled manually and it will not freeze ( even after a week ). Freezer seems to work fine. Fridge also. Had service guy come out and he said it needed a new ice maker ( was only 1 year old at time ) I finally ordered one since he gave me the part number and told me to get it myself on amazon. Still does the same thing. Last tech just wanted service call money and out of here in 5 minutes with us thinking he did us a favor by suggesting a $120.00 part that he said he would have to charge us $400.00 for. Had a fan noise a while back but it stopped. Everything still seems to work but ice maker and it wasn't working before the noise. No air seems to be coming from the 2 small vents in the door that seem to feed the in door ice maker.

If you are getting water through your door doesn't mean it's going to your icemaker it has a separate valve would replace the water valve

SOURCE: Kenmore Model # 596.735032.. Fridge is cool, Freezer is not freezing

After pulling the fridge away from the wall and removing the lower right hand panel I noticed that the compressor (big round black ball with copper tubing) was not turning on. I also noticed that there was a ticking or popping sound comming from it every couple of minutes or so. After doing some research online in numerouse forums I decided to try and replace the overheat relay that is attached to the compressor. It only took maybie five minutes at most to change it and the compressor is now working with nice cold air comming into the fridge and freezer. Hope this helps someone else with the same problem.

SOURCE: no water to ice maker

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

    SOURCE: No ice from icemaker of Kenmore Elite model 106

    I just resolved an issue with my kenmore elite side by side refrigerator icemaker (model 106).
    It was expensive because I took the long road to fixing the unit myself.

    My problem: No water going up to the freezer water dispenser into the icemaker but the water in front of the door working just fine.

    -first thing i tried was the simplest. The Internet is clogged with this miracle fix of using a hair dryer to melt the frozen water line going to the dispenser output. This is highly unlikely for our model since the water line is protected within the refrigerator frame.

    -2nd thing I replaced my water filter (thinking that there wasn't enough water pressure to trigger the solenoid valve. $40, and still no luck.

    -3rd thing was I tested for voltage going to the solenoid. No voltage going to solenoid, so I wasted $30 for a new solenoid.....still no water.

    -4th thing was I ordered a new IR sensor and receiver (since the reciever end is where the relay that sends the voltage to the solenoid to turn on and allow water to go up to the dispenser).
    My IR sender and receiver appeared to be working flakey.
    Installed, still no water. $58 BUCKS ON EBAY (EVERYWHERE ELSE $100+)

    -I finally removed the freezer front little white door, I TURNED OFF THE FREEZER SWITCH SO NO VOLTAGE WAS PRESENT, removed the release latch underneath the freezer unit and disconnected, and removed the freezer unit to inspect it further.
    When I removed the protective white cover that covers the mechanical wheel, I had a few parts come flying out of it. Turns out that the wheel accessories were damaged. THERE ARE NO REPAIRABLE PARTS ON THE FREEZER UNIT. I FOUND ONE ON EBAY FOR $39 BUCKS + $9 SHIPPING! $48 BUCKS, SWAPPED THE HARNESS AND BOTTOM COVER, AND IN 20 MINUTES, I WAS BACK IN BUSINESS. STARTED MAKING ICE IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR!!!!!

    when in doubt, replace the freezer unit for $48 bucks! 7 out of 10 times it will fix your problems. All techs replace the IR set at the same time too which will set you back another $58 bucks.
    Good luck! ;)

    SOURCE: Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

    Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

    Change the water control valve because it is not shutting off once the ice maker is full. The valve is sticking open slightly once power is off to water valve. What is the model number of your Kenmore Elite Model numbers for Kenmore most times look like this example=> 321.456789 Sea Breeze

    Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.


    If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
    If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.


    Ice maker water not stopping
    The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

    Our Ice maker is not producing ice. I've tried using a hair dryer to melt possible frozen water. It worked once, but now that ice maker is back to not producing ice.


    The heating element is not working to heat the base and free the ice from the tray. At this point it's probably better to just replace the ice maker. They are about 60-70$

    Too much water is being dispensed when filling to make ice cubes. Water pours into ice bin and freezes. What to do?


    You have to close the water supply tap from the source a little. This will decrease the volume of water being pumped into the ice maker. If this doen't work then you need to replace the solenoid valve that feed the water to the ice maker.

    Water dispencer not working


    check inside the bottom of the refrigerator for water, the water line goes thru the back of the refrigerator and it may have cracked and leaking inside instead of going to the dispenser. 
    if not then water is most likely frozen in the line going thru the back of the refrigerator. look behind the pans in the refrigerator and there should be a coil of clear plastic water line, this is the reservoir that chills the water for the dispenser. sometimes it will freeze up if the refrigerator is very cold.
