We need to know if the ice maker overflowed or if there is a crack. Sometimes the water gets frozen in the fill tube and diverts the water everywhere other that ice maker. Rare but sometimes something causes the water control valve to stick open on rear of refrigerator. Your ice maker has a thermostat inside it and starts a cycle when the thermostat says the water has frozen. That starts a cycle of about six thing to happen.The defrost element below ice maker warms the bottom just enough to loosen the ice. Micro switches feel and sense the position and as it nears ending the final step the ice maker tells the water control valve to open for a few seconds. An adjustment in that control may stop over flow. But if cracked in a major section it will need to be replaced. Let me know if this helps you. Sea Breeze

    Yes you can fix it yourself. Sometimes it is cost effective and sometimes its not. Do you know where the leak is and would you like to compare the parts and cost of replacement?

I have a Knmore side by side fridge, model 106.55606400. The ice dispenser have stopped dispensing ice. The icemaker working fine,the dispenser motor makes a sound when lever depressed for ice.Where do I...


One is the icemaker will leak on the auger motor and freeze it up as you describe. If this is the problem the ice will be very solid (hard ice). If this is the case check to see if the tube that feeds the icemaker water is clogged with ice and if so remove the ice and replace the water valve. If not the icemaker may be overflowing, which is still most likely due to a bad water valve.

The other thing that will cause this is an air leak. If it is an air leak the ice will be frosty more like snow than hard ice. But even so it will still cause the auger not to work. If this is the case check the little flap that opens and closes to let ice through the door to see if it is closing properly. Then check the door gasket to see if it is sealing properly.

Turning the temp. down shouldn't help nor hurt your problem.

My Kenmore refrigerators (model #79177990) ice


Ice inlet tube may be frozen up inside of Fridge. Thaw it out with a hair blower. Shut of water supply and disconnect the water line that goes into the back. Use a flexable item at the connection to see if will go all the way through to the icemaker. I used a zip tie.

If you still don't have water going to the icemaker, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at bottom back right of your Fridge. Easy to Do.

Ice maker issues - what to do next?


I have not found Kenmore to do the best with the icemakers; however, you want to make sure that the lever on the side was replaced properly. They have a slot that they need to go into. The other thing that is important is to see if the motor is running on the ice maker. It could be at fault, but if that is the case those units usually are better off replaced as a whole, which runs around $200. You will probably get them cheaper through an appliance dealor rather than going through Sears and there probably is one in your yellow page section of your phone book...hope this helps.

I have a kenmore elite fridg that is not making ice,but i have water at the door. modle # 50509990. THANKS.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker ( if there is no cubes in there now ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes when frozen , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils at the bottom of refrig in front , are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also check the plastic hose inside the freezer , to the icemaker , to make sure it is not frozen . If it is , replace the water valve , due to slow drip leak .

Kenmore side by side Mod#10657567790. No water to Icemaker. I am getting water to water disp. but none to icemaker. Changed out solenoid still no water to ice.


Hello. It sounds like the icemaker is bad. It is not the solenoid but the fact that the icemaker head is not requesting the water.

The icemaker leaks water from the fill tube into the fridge


my suggestion is to start from the beginning! shut down the fridge for a couple of days store food somewhere else (obviously and see if you get much water at bottom. have mos and bucket nearby. blow into any hoses that are accessible. unplug fridge of course.

Ice maker not working properly


Make sure the fill tube going directly into the icemaker is not touching the part that receives the water, if it is touching the water will spray all over and not go into the cavity
