I too have this problem. I replaced the dual solenoid valve, but still no water. I've filled the tray with ice and the unit freezes and empties it, but will not refill. There must be a switch in the ice maker unit the trips the solenoid. I can't seem to find a replacement part for it.

SOURCE: Ice maker for Kenmore model 532343 not working

Does your water have minerals?
Faulty Water Valve
Your ice maker is designed to fill with water for 6 to 8 seconds. Check to see that the ice maker is not sending power to the water inlet valve for a period longer than what you unit is designed for. Does your water have minerals?

Also check to see if the water inlet valve is closing too slowly. The power to the valve is being shut off in the correct amount of time, but due to wear and tear in the valve, it is closing too slow.

Check the timing on the value. Put a volt meter across the leads of the water inlet valve. Set the voltage range to cover the 120v voltage. Cycle the ice maker and watch the meter. When the ice maker begins to fill with water the meter will read voltage coming from the ice maker. Time the difference between when the voltage is cut from the valve and when the water quits filling the ice maker.

If the water shuts off immediately when the voltage is removed, the valve is probably good. Since it was off 10 days the particle build-up on the valve may be the problem since it could solidify. You could try working the valve back and forth or replace it.

If the valve closed quickly then the problem is the valve was opened too long.
If that is the case then you have an ice maker control problem. In that case see if the timing can be adjusted.

SOURCE: water doesn't enter ice maker tray

You probaby just have an air lock somewhere. Trace the tube to where it taps into the water pipe. Remove the hose and blow thru it.

The icemaker contains an electric motor. You might have drowned it.

Ice maker not working


my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

Kenmore side by side model #515541 01--replaced water filter -water dispenser works great but no water coming into ice maker - what could be problem? we purchased this used-is there something we have to do...


I had the same problem. Sometimes the tray overfills and freezes in the little line that fills the ice cube tray.

I solved the problem by taking an ice pick and clearing the ice from the end of that little waterline until the water started flowing again.

I have a kitchenaid 23cd.Icemaker doesn't work has 40# water pressure 5 deg in freezer water works to fill glass no water in ice tray unpluged for 24 hours


If the water dispenser is working and fill glass function is working but the ice maker section there is no water in the tray then its faulty ice maker valve.This is a twin valve.The valve is one unit,but has two sections one for water and one for ice dispenser.This valve is got faulty and not working for both sections so water is not entering the ice maker tray.
There is a water valve at the back of the ice maker.This valve controls the flow of water in the ice maker chamber.If this valve is not functioning as required then water will not enter the ice maker.This valve is at the back of ice maker connected to the water fill tube.It has to be replaced to clear this problem.

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

Kenmore 56541 side by side icemaker nor making ice The in door water dispencer works Arm on tray is on no water getting to tray


1.Bad water valve located in the back bottom of refrigerator.
2. Frozen fill tube going into back of ice maker. (common problem)
3. Ice maker not cycling. Pour water into ice maker cavity until near filled.
Wait a few hours and see if it dumps.
4.In rare cases, the switch in the ice maker body fails. Ice maker will cycle but not tell water valve to refill.

Ice maker not producing ice. Tried everything in the Troubleshooting section of Users Manual. Replaced water filter. The front water dispenser is working.


the most likely thing would be a bad water valve.try to reset the ice maker and watch to see if the tray fills up the fill tube could also be blocked with frozen water.the last thing is simply a bad ice maker.
