Kenmore - Ice Maker Not making much ice

My icemaker is making very little ice. It's been working for a while now, but all of a sudden the ice production slowed a lot. Any suggestions? I've checked the water supply and everything looks good there. The "teeth" in the maker are rotating on a regular basis, but there's no water in the trays. Again, this just happened all of a sudden.

I have a Kenmore Model 106-55602400 Coldspot and the icemaker stopped working. What do I do?

The control module has failed on the ice maker. You can replace the control module alone, but I would replace the ice maker completely.
Here is a link for the control module.
Here is a link for the new ice maker.

Kenmore elite model 50592000 ice maker problems

Note that the temperature in the freezer must be below 10 degrees F for the icemaker to cycle. The icemaker line is the smaller line (1/4") located in the back of the machine that runs from the valve to the filll tube. To test the valve and icemaker you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. You can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked "M" and the other in the cicle marked "N". Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Before doing any of the above though check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.

Ice maker not working doesn't fill or dump or make any noise, stopped suddenly

Make sure the lever is down first . if so ,pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker and see if it harvests (dumps) . If it harvests , then the water valve is bad . If not , and the ice stays in the icemaker , then the icemaker is bad .

Can not make ice. Ice maker was working until husband cleaned it. thank you.

Is the little on-off bar attached to the icemaker in the "on" position? It is the device that will not allow the icemaker to cycle when the ice bin is full...

Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck

Kemore coldspot no ice?

no you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it
