    Ok, fixed my own problem. Opened compartment, took all the ice out of the caddie, got a large "bowl" placed it under the side door, and ran hot water from inside the caddie and it came out front, thus releasing the frozen up ice that was caked all around. Waited 24 hrs and voila! Ice in the ice maker, and running beautifully. Should clean this out every couple of months to prevent the freezing up in the door panel, and that should be keeping it running smoothly.

    I used a hairdryer to unfreeze the ice cube holder where the ice is delivered into your holder. I emptied out all the ice first, then blow dryed it. When it became runny and warm it started to move and I was able to release it and rinse it out in hot water in a sink to release all the congested frozen ice. Dried it off, placed it back and waited 24 hours and it voila, I had ice again and no more problems. Easy care solution: take it off once in a while and rinse it off to take off hard ice that is wrapping itself around the carosel that delivers ice. It works!

Is the food frozen solid in the freezer? Does the ice maker get any water to it? Do you see any ice buildup in the freezer?

Ice maker stoped working


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.

Kenmore fridge ice maker


I used a hair dryer for about 5 minutes. It took a while to verify because a tray of ice had to fill and freeze before I knew my problem was fixed. No repairman!!!

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.
