Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Kenmore Elite Model #53709201 manufactured in 2002. It stopped producing ice. It appears that no water is going to the ice trays. The ice maker control switch is in the "on" position but there is a red light which is adjacent to the switch which keeps blinking. The refrigerator is getting power. Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

    you have to pay attention to how many times it blinks and i can look up a code for that... and, make sure there is no ice in the way of the red beam

SOURCE: Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking

J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

This is good! This indicates a defrosting system failure which is a simple control problem. It also means that the sealed system (compressor, evaporator coil, and all associated tubing) is fine as wine in summertime. Defrost system problems are easy fixes that anyone with a pulse can do with maybe just a little help from their friends. The problem will either be the defrost timer (or Adaptive Defrost Control board, if so equipped), the defrost thermostat, or the defrost heater. To locate these parts in your fridge, check out these cool, interactive parts diagrams.

Ksrp25fnbl00 Ice maker stopped producing ice


ksrp25fnbl00 ice maker has stopped making ice. It appears that the water supply that comes down from the top of the interior cabinet is freezing and this is causing the ice tray not to refill. What would cause this?

I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and...


OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:
12_17_2011_1_36_01_am.jpgIf it looks like this model, I have the service manual for it with all the testing procedures.If it doesn't, see if you can get a model number off the unit. They make about 4 different model for this unit.

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$

My ice maker on my Kenmore Elite has stop making ice. The water still works, but it no longer will make ice. What can be wrong with it, and how can I fix it?


If the water flow works, I would check the wire that controls the water flow to the icemaker. It shuts off the water when the tray is full and fills the ice maker when it senses that more ice is needed. It typically is over the ice tray. This can be dislodged and reseating it will solve the problem.
Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem. Thanks.

Kenmore Elite, Ice maker will not produce.


Try taking the ice despenser out and carefully melt any ice in the freezing tray. Sometimes the ice doesn't fully eject, leaving behind residue that will eventually become too full to produce ice. You can melt it by slow running hot water or hair dryer low speed.
