Question about Kenmore 25.4 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuR Ultimate II Ice and Water
I replaced the valve at back of the unit. I still do not get water past the valve. I here the ice maker working and when i go for water i here it working just not getting water past the valve. water gets the valve, i connected plugs and water lines but still dont see water going past lines.
if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.

Comment regarding catriver Aug 18 post: Shorting L&V caused valve to work I believe, at least I think I heard it operate, but shorting T&H did not cause gear to move. So does that indicste a different problem? Still no ice. JimB

According to the manufacture, you must wait 24hrs to reap the benefits of the automatic ice maker. I was helping a friend the other day install a water line to a side by side unit that had been running for well over a week and after turning the water on we got no ice. We contacted the manufacture and they said "there is a 24hr waiting period". This makes no sense. I wasn't trying to get a gun permit, just ice.

I had the same issue and here's what I did to fix it. I pulled out my ice bin. Pushed the metal rod that's underneath it up. Pushed it back into place so that the metal rod would go above the lever in the hole in the back. Sorry- don't know any of the technical terms or names of parts, but once I readjusted the position of the rod I got ice cubes. Hope it works for you!

The ice maker has two 1/4 inch sheetmetal screws holding against the wall upper left and one underneath the maker. Remove these and it should come out

Ice maker stopped making
ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water
filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the
water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the
water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not
getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem
is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the
water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the
other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from
which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked
then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using
hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and
water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely
clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is
water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the
water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and
in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water
valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water
filling cycle.------- In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice
maker section, on some refrigerators the valve is at the lower section. ------------- The above possibilities which I gave you is
water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But
now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's
still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is
controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker
but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem
is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice
or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve.
