Ice maker not working

I followed the repair instructions you gave chrisp (posted by chrisp on Apr 30, 2007) but stopped once I got to the part "Get yourself a piece of insulated wire about 4 inches long...Place the jumber wire in  T & H...plug the refer back in."  What exactly am I doing and is there any chance I could damage the machines electrical system?  When I plugged the fridge back in the module started working, the ejector blade rotated and the tray filled with water but 24 hrs. later and no new ice and the module doesn't appear to be working.  So if you convince me to use the jumper wire and the ice maker still doesn't work does that mean the whole unit needs to be replaced or just the module?

Re: Ice maker not working

Your ice-maker only operates when the temperature in the freezer gets to -17 degrees. There is a thermostat built into the ice maker that makes this possible. All you are doing with the jumper is bypassing the thermostat. If ice-maker still does not operate then you may have to replace the ice-maker.

Ice maker stopped making ice. I had to melt ice

Jim, you will need to replace the heating element and most likely once this has been replaced, your ice maker should work properly unless the ice broke another part on your ice maker.

I would start with the heating element first.

Just contact us at: with your model number and we will get the correct part out to you asap!
We look forward to getting your ice maker working properly again soon!

Thanks, Ella

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.
