ICE MAKER NOT WORKING Kenmore cold Spot model# 106.55536400

I have a Kenmore 2 door refrigertor that has an Ice maker problem. The water does not fill the ice maker tray, but water does come out of the water dispenser. I did check the ice collection overflow light and it seems to work correctly (block it and light blinks, unblock and light is steady.) Would like your help to try and repair this unit if possible.

 

Respectfully,

    David

    Had the same problem and discovered the broken stud. I used a pencil eraser cut off to size, forced back in center hole to ensure tight contact, and waited. In a few hours it started working again, worked fine for over two years, and then the other stud broke this week. Looks like time to really fix it!

Most common problem is a broken ice maker module.  Should also replace ice maker thermostat when changing the module.  Make sure fill tube isn't frozen first. If you take the ice maker out pull off the plastic cover and in the center of the wheel that kind of looks like a gear there are two little plastic studs.  If one is broke or they are pressed together then the module is bad. Make sure to replace the thermostat along with some silicone grease because a bad thermostat is what causes the module to break.

I just fixed a similar issue. The entry tube freezes, you will need to remove the module and take a hair dryer to it, make sure you get all the ice out of the tube.

Can you locate your model number inside the fresh food section around door frame? I believe you have the ice maker with the electronic eye and sounds like you need to follow these instructions so the ice maker works again. If I am wrong then please correct me by posting your model number that should look like this example=> 321.234567 Click Here=> Whirlpool Ice Maker Infrared Electronic Eye Technical Information I am here if you need to ask questions, Sea Breeze

The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Kenmore Elite side-by-side refrigertor


depends on the problem.
1st what is the freezer temperature by the ice maker?
Is it filling with water?
Does the water freeze solid?
I fthe temp is below say 12'f and its filling with water a replacement kit of just the head of the icemaker should fix you up. Some kits though have instructions you need to read befroe proceeding., Some of the instructions may not be clear so read them where you buy the replacement and ask questions there as to what to look for.

If this helped you pleaese rate me as much as you can. If it did not help you please restate your question so I may give more detail to communicate to you better. Thank you and good luck.

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.
