Question about Kenmore 56549 / 56542 / 56544 / 56546 Side by Side Refrigerator
As long as your freezer will freeze water, your ice maker will make ice. All the ice maker does is supply the water, then dump the ice after it freezes.
So, that narrows it down to: 1) Either the ice cubicles are not filling with water, or 2) The ice is not dumping into the bin after it freezes.
To check for #1, you should be able to look into the ice cubicles to see if they're filled with water (or ice). If they are, go to #2. If not, you've probably got a defective water valve.
If the cubicles are full of ice or water, but don't dump out, the most likely culprit is the cubicle heater, which slightly heats the walls of the cubicles so that the ice can be more easily ejected into the bin. Unless you're VERY mechanically inclined, this is a job best left for an appliance repairman.
