Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

What can I do to fix an ice maker on a Kenmore Elite model 795.71059.010 when no water comes out to fill the ice tray?

No water is going into the ice tray. Water comes out of the water dispenser which is in the same door. I have tried turning the power switch off and back on again just like the instructions say, but all that happens is the ice tray in the ice maker tips one way and appears to be stuck, then the other way, and then levels out and stops. Nothing happens after that. I have tried this several times. What else can I do?

Hello,
There are as you can imagine many possible causes for you no ice condition. I will give you the most common problem for the year model you have. I hope this helps you.
You will need to remove the ice maker from the freezer compartment to check it. Once it is repaired if the following information does help, and you reinstall the ice maker, it should go through a cycle automatically within an hour of your reinstalling it in the freezer compartment.
Once you have the ice maker out of the freezer compartment you will need to remove the white cover on the end of the ice maker and look at the center of the large white gear. If the part inside the hole in the center of the gear is broken or looks twisted, you will need to replaced the module. The module is the part that has the large white gear and is held in the ice maker by 3 phillips head screws. It only comes as an assembly. You can't get just the little broken piece.

More than likely, your water line is freezing up in the door. You can remove all of the ice cubes and lower the freezer temp to about 3. Leave the freezer door open for about 5 minutes or so and if this does not work, leave the door open a little longer. Also, disconnect the water line at the base of the freezer door, near the floor, and press the dispenser lever. If you have water there, you most likely have a frozen line in the door. Changing the water filter often will help but it is not the answer and is can get quite expensive. By the way, Make sure to hold the dispenser lever forward for at least a couple of minutes each time you test for water flow. If you do not get water at the connector at the base of the door after you have disconnected the line, you have a problem with the valve in the back of the refrigerator.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

Ice maker will not fill with water.


You mean " Why The Water Doesn't Fill the Tray in Kenmore Ice Maker?"
Am i right to your question? Well, Kenmore brand refrigerators often have an ice maker that uses the water supply to create ice inside the freezer compartment. Some models have an ice dispenser on the freezer door for easy access, and others simply create ice and deposit it into a tray inside the freezer. While most ice makers should work well with basic maintenance and care, issues may occasionally arise. One such problem is if the water does not fill the tray to create ice inside the ice maker. Resolving this issue may be possible through some troubleshooting efforts.

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer.

2 Fill a turkey baster with hot water.

3 Spray hot water from the turkey baster into the tube at the back of the ice maker, which may be frozen or clogged.

4 Repeat spraying water into the tube until the blockage or frost is removed.

5 Replace the ice bin into the unit.
Please let me know if this help you.

My ice maker does not make ice. my model # is 06.57362703


I am pretty sure a number 1 should come before the number you listed 106.57362703 so that is what I will go with. It appears that your Refrigerator was made by Whirlpool and sold to Sears. The first thing to check is if ice is still in the slots from the last fill. Then if not any ice remaining fill the ice slots with tap water and allow water to freeze. If the ice drops into the ice bin and the ice maker does not refill with water on its own would indicate a defective water control valve part number Click Here=> 4389177 Water Control Valve If water fills the ice tray on its own I would say that the ice maker is the problem. It is easier and less expensive to just buy the=> W10190965 Ice Maker Assembly. Let me know your results and if you have any questions I will be here to answer them for you, Thanks Sea Breeze

Our ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why?


Your icemaker is not getting enough water to adequatly fill the tray. Before you adjust it, check the status of the refrigerator's waterfilter. If it's old and clogged replace. Next, wait for the tray to fill, and check the level water before it has a chance to freeze. (or take the frozen tray out and allow to thaw). The tray should be about 75% or more full of water. If not, there is an adjustment that can be made to extend the amount of time the solenoid stays open (which means more time for the water to fill the trays). Good luck!

My ice maker on my Kenmore Elite has stop making ice. The water still works, but it no longer will make ice. What can be wrong with it, and how can I fix it?


If the water flow works, I would check the wire that controls the water flow to the icemaker. It shuts off the water when the tray is full and fills the ice maker when it senses that more ice is needed. It typically is over the ice tray. This can be dislodged and reseating it will solve the problem.
Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem. Thanks.

Ice maker will not fill with water


Water might be frozen in the tube that fills the ice tray. Check the tube and if it's frozen shut, use a hair dryer to heat it until the ice piece melts out. Your icemaker should work after the fridge has been closed for 24 hours to cool back down.

1.Bad water valve located in the back bottom of refrigerator.
