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.

SOURCE: Brand new Kenmore refrigerator, ice maker does not work

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.

SOURCE: Model 363-9534753 Kenmore icemaker not dispensing ice cubes

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

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 icemaker is not making ice. The water dispenser is working. Settings are fine, no ice at all in ice compartment. Filter light is not on. Ice maker button is in on position

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. ------------

Water plug to the ice maker keeps popping out

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly This is usually caused by water leaking past the ice maker water valve. That water freezes up in the through the chassis water tube and then causes either the line to pop off or the tube to pop out. The remedy is to replace the ice maker water valve in the bottom rear of the unit. I just had to do the same thing for my own ice maker. The water line kept popping off and the ice maker had been making odd sized ice cubes. After replacing the water valve everything is normal.

If you need assistance locating a replacement water valve just respond with a make and model number of your unit and I will help you find a parts source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Kenmore side by side. No water getting to the ice maker. Water in the door works fine. Have already replaced the filter.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Just replaced the water filter on our side by side Kenmore 53569202, thinking that may have caused our ice maker to quit working. when opening the door to the freezer, there is a red light blinking twice...

You could have ice in the water shoot which formed because your inlet valve is clogged. The inlet valve is locater in the back behind access cover. Melt the water shoot with a hairdryer and then replace your inlet valve. Fairly inexpensive and easy to change. The reason the water shoot becomes ice is the inlet valve get slower and slower water flow which gives it time to freeze on the way in to the ice maker. Hope i helped, Rate me.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator warming up

There is a definetely leak in the cooling gas.
Firstly... You will need to find from where the gas has leaked. It is usually on the compressor pipes..... but not always.

Secondly you are right about the Water Valve... it needs to be changed.
