If the refrigerator is not making ice then it can be any of this 2 issues.

1)the freon gas (refrigerant) is gone low so not able to cool it till the freezing temprature so its not making ice.

2)the timer is faulty so its not defrosting the blogged tubes and not allowing the cooling required by the freezer to make ice.

in most cases its freon problem.it is advisable to get your freon pressure level checked by a tech initially.

Ice maker won t dump ice


The ice is stuck in the tray because the heater element has not slightly melted the ice so it can be pushed out of tray. Check for continuity of element and/or proper cam operation (motor that controls all of the operations).

No ice


If ice is formed but will not drop just pour hot water over the cubes. Or the teeth that push out the ice are getting stuck, in that case hold down the on switch to advance the teeth manually.

Ice won't come out


if it's making ice, but the ice won't come out, it is likely going to be the dispenser motor (found behind the ice bucket).

the other possibility is the lever where you put the cup could not be hitting the switch, but most likely it is the dispenser motor.

Not cooling


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1. Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2. Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3. Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4. Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

The question is too short so i guess that your refrigerator maybe won't make ice & reason for not cooling so i gave this tip.

Have a good day. : )
