Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make

Kenmore sode by side with ice maker inside the freezer part. Ice maker has not worked for years. The last few days food below the ice maker has been thawing and today I notices the bottom of the ice maker was hot--really hot to touch. About 45 minutes later, I checked it ans it was no longer hot. (I pushed the knob for the size of ice from large to small when I discovered it was hot.) Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice maker?

Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze

TRY DISCONNECTING THE ICE MAKER FROM INSIDE AND RUN HOT WATER OVER IT UN TIL IT IS COMPLETELY THAWED, THEN RECONNECT IT AND SEE IF IT WILL MAKE ICE NOW. SOMETIMES ICE MAKERS CAN BECOMED BLOCKED BY ICE.

Turned ice maker off prior to a ten day vacation. Upon return, it would make thin shelled ice cubes and finally stopped altogether. Could the water line be frozen How does one de-ice?


Fastest way is to remove the ice maker tray so that you have an open area where the ice maker filling tube is, then cover your food with a towel or something to help prevent it from thawing while you let refrigerator defrost for about 20 to 30 minutes with a hair drier on warm or a small fan blowing directly on ice maker where the water fill tube or opening is. I does not need to be right next to the ice maker just an unrestricted open area to let it warm sufficiently to thaw it out without thawing out your food in the freezer. A small piece of ice can stop the valve from opening and this can happen if it is not used regularly.

Sideby side whirlpool- 3 years old- ice maker stopped working 3 weeks ago. today everything in freezer is melting


Verify condenser fan is running. Check evaporator coils for frost. IM will quit if freezer does not go below 5 degrees. The cooling was slowly dieing and finally warmed enough to defrost the food.

Ice maker stopped dropping ice or even making ice.


Try using a hair dryer to thaw out the rubber tubing leading to the ice tray. On mine, I opened up the front door to the icemaker and found the rubber tubing leading in. I squeazed it, it felt frozen, so I applied heat. Water began dripping out, the area thawed, and I had ice again within a short period of time.

Whirlpool refridgerator icing problem


2 things, first off if its under one year give whirlpool a calll, you would be coverd under warr. let them fix it, second i would ask you to open the door and remove the ice from the chute one more time, then check too see that the ice door flap is sealing properly against the chue, if theres a gap warm air will get in. perhaps the door feels real loose as if not sealing at all in which case perhaps a bracket has snapped and needs to be replaced,

We have a Whirlpool gb22dk refrigerator freezer. The bottom freezer keeps meat frozen but will not keep sea food ice cream bread ect frozen. This fridge came with our house which we purchased 2 years ago...


1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower. PLEAS RATE THIS!
