Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
First thing to check is that the icemaker is turned on. :D
SEE HERE to view the on/off switch.
Next...There is a timer that controls the ejector and motor assembly SEE it HERE
This is what times the freeze cycle & routs the power to the ejector arms after a set amount of time.
Finally - There is a thermostat that lets the timer know the ice is made. SEE IT HERE
Each of these items must be tested with a DMM (Digital Multimeter) or you will end up throwing money at it blindly. If your skillset does not allow the proper operation and use of a DMM - you should seek professional repair - as these circuits must be tested with live electricity (except the thermostat)
It IS possible (depending on how often you access the ice) that it is frozen the ejector arms from moving - in which case simply unplug the freezer and allow to thaw - then re-try. However since you do not hear clicking or noises - most likely one of the top 3 choices is the culprit in your case.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
See if you can get the ejector arms to move now that they are freed up.
