    This is a Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator Model 52554100 (circa 2002)

  • Debra Kelley Oct 16, 2007

    The freezer and refrig. are cold. The icemaker does not fill up with water to make cubes. Is there a sensor that controls the ice cube maker?

  • Debra Kelley Oct 19, 2007

    Kenmore /coldspot #106-52554100.  2002 model



    How do I check the fill tube to make sure it isn't frozen? The tip of fill tube inside the freezer does not appear to  be frozen.



    Thank you!

    You identified the problem - sensor needed to be replaced. Thank you!

    I have the same problem - where is this sensor located? Is the part number right on the part and can I order it from Amana?

Chances are it will be best to replace the ice maker but give me your complete model # from the sticker inside the fridge.  Also, make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isn't frozen up.  There should be a 3 digit # in front of the 52554100.

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

No water in automatic ice maker, therefore no ice cubes.


Do you get water at the front dispensor, if present? If not check the refrigerator water filter. If you have an RO system feeding filtered water to the fridge, check it's filter. Also there is a solenoid that lets water into the ice cube maker, have a professional check it to make sure its working correctly. Lastly I have had to replace the entire ice cube maker, sometimes they do fail. Replacements can be found fairly easy on the internet.

The water/ice dispensor not working


There is usually a button on the control panel to lock the the water and ice.  Since it is both this is the most likely cause.  If your controls are not locked the the control panel is probably lacking power somewhere and will need in depth troubleshooting.

The ice maker stopped making ice. Any solutions?


A lot of filters ( not all ) do not even access the ice maker . Only the water dispensor . If your water dispensor is working fine , then you need to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece the wall water line connects to . It is called a dual valve because there are 2 coils on the valve . 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispensor .

Frigidaire Model # GLRS267dzw2 ice maker isn't filling up with water too make ice.


As every technician knows , a water and ice dispensor refrig , has a dual water inlet valve . Just because the water dispensor works , does not mean the coil for the ice maker is working . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the frozen cubes , but does not refil with water , check the fill tube inside the freezer , from the wall to the fill cup on the ice maker , to see if it is frozen . If so , replace the dual water inlet valve , due to seeping . This is not closing completely , and letting drips thru , which freeze inside the tube . If the tube is not frozen , then the water inlet valve is bad , not letting water thru to the ice maker .
If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , then the ice maker needs to be replaced . Also check the coils under the refrig , to be sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc , as this will raise the temp above 5 degrees , which is the operating temp , for an icemaker .

Ice maker will not make ice


Make sure the ice maker is turned on ( green light ?) . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps the cubes , but doesn't fill with water , replace the dual water inlet valve ( one coil for water dispensor , the other is for the ice maker ) . If it does not dump the frozen cubes , then replace the ice maker .

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

Ice maker not dispensing ice


If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .
