Question about Kenmore 5553 / 655532 / 55534 / 55539 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice is not ejecting

I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side.  Model number 106.5666501.

The ice is not ejecting.  The padels are frozen inside the ice cubes.  I took the icemaker out and defrosted the ice cubes.

I replaced the ice maker completely free of ice and dry.  The next cycle, the padels did not completely rotate the ice around and now the padels are frozen inside the cubes.

Sounds like the icemaker thermostat is opening too soon which turns the heater off.  The easiest thing to do is replace the whole ice maker which I have seen pretty cheap on ebay.  If you want you can test these part with an ohm meter.  Check the heater for resistance.  If it is ok then replace the module and thermostat.

Timer ice maker kenmore side


If the timer piece you are referring to is behind the square white cover, and it's moving slightly back and forth, you should visually check the ice making area it's self to see if the ejector fingers are jammed with ice, or against the ice stripper. Ice Maker jams can be caused by reduced water pressure to the unit mainly from the water filter, your water filter in the toe kick should be replaced at an interval of 6 months to a year, regardless of filter status light. When water pressure is low, not enough water fills the unit and the undersized cubes can become lodged or stuck in the ice maker while being ejected, equally so if there is an over fill situation caused by other failures the ice maker can't eject at all.

Kenmore Coldspot side by side ice maker not working, red lite bliking


Often I find your ice maker on the Kenmore side by side thefill tube frozen. The fill tube is ablack rubber hose located above and to the right of your ice maker. Simplypinch the tube to see if it frozen solid. If it is, use a hair dryer set onmedium to defrost the fill line. http://www.on-timeappliance.com/kenmorerefrigeratorrepairdallastx.html

Kenmore coldspot model 10657282791 ice maker dispenser crusher frozen


Hello,

When you say "frozen" do ya mean that all the ice in the storage bin is one huge block of ice??
if yes all the ice is frozen together,that is caused by a malfunctioning water inlet valve that is not fully closing yet stays opena wee bit allowing water to seep into the storage bin and freezing all the ice together. To repair that the water inlet valve would need to be replaced. Its part number 2188542 it could be picked up at your local appliance parts store or online at;

No ice is being made.


Most likely either water valve is bad or ice maker is bad. You would need to determine if Ice Maker is sending voltage to water valve. If it is, replace valve. If it's not, replace ice maker. Also be sure filler tube going through back wall is not frozen. If it is, replace water valve.

Kenmore coldspot not making ice, and not cooling in the bottom


Your refrigerator is frosted up. Remove the inside panel of your freezer. Defrost the ice out of the coils and check the heater and bi-metal. If both are good then your defrost timer is bad. If one is bad replace and you have it fixed. Good luck.
