Kenmore elite 106.53603202 making too much ice

This model is 12 years old. Its not stopping ice making even after the bin is full. Also the ice is spilling all over the sides. Have to keep emptying it very often. I couldnt find the wiring diagram for it in the manual i downloaded. Wondering if this could be an electronic eye issue

Often times there is a metal or plastic bar that raises and lowers with the ice reservoir. The lever could be stuck in the up position.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Side By Side not making Ice, but water dispenser works

We had the same problem with ours. We held a hair blow-dryer to the end of the water tube for about four minutes, and the little ice plug just fell right out.

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working Kenmore model 106.55226400

Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

I have a GE refrigerator, model TPX24BPDA, that has an ice maker that won't stop making ice! Whatever mechanism that senses when the hopper is full isn't working. I can't locate any sensor either.


Ice Maker Doesn't Turn Off If your ice maker keeps making ice, even when it is full:
1Lift the bail wireto shut off the ice maker, and remove the ice bin. Then, using a screwdriver if necessary, remove the ice maker, clean it thoroughly, and then reinstall it.
2If the problem persists,consider removing and replace the entire ice maker and valve. With this type of problem, you can have it repaired, but it's often wiser and less expensive in the long run to replace the unit entirely.

Kenmore Elite side by side model won't stop making ice.


It appears your ice maker on/off switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
