    The ice control light is flashing, I have the optic sensor, the model is Kenmore 106.55539400. The ice maker has been turned on for almost 24 hours, no ice and the water dispenser is not cold water. What is the fix for this problem please?

    Sorry, I am back now with problem unsolved. The ice maker has no water in it nor ice in tray. The water dispenser in door works and is cold. The little blinking red light on side blinks twice with door open. With flap closed it still blinks twice. Black tube to icemaker seems to be free of ice, but no water in it or coming out.

Water is in the tray and you have freezing temps? Can you tell me a little more? The flashing red light began when the ice tray filled and did not freeze? Let me know when possible, Thanks JT

    Do you have the optic type or the arm shut off for your ice tray? If so the Light two pulses followed by 1 second delay may indicate the optics are faulty or flapper door may be blocking beam.

    LED light steady the optics are working properly.

Ice maker will not make ice

If you have water sitting in the trays and no action is happening, then i suggest replacing the ice maker complete as these spares are pricey and take a while to get to you , (In the hope that they are correct). On some units there is a small test button. If you have one, push or switch it to activate icemaker. Often this resetting brings the ice maker back on line.

Ice maker stopped working, red light is flashing, however water is working? What is the problem, how do I fix?

For the red light try removing or replacing your filter.

The ice maker usually has a make ice bar about it inside the freezer. The down position is usually on.

Ice maker does not make ice. water will dispense thru door and I replace the water filter every six months.

I had the same problem. There is air in the line therefore you need to dispense about 3 gallons of water from the dispenser and that should slove the problem. Also, take a clean soft cloth or paper iowel and wipe the ice make sensor (if you have one) and the reciever. There is one on each side of slightly below the ice maker. Should be a flashing or steady red light ....follow the flashing red light to the other side.
