I have a french door refrig with two ice makers. I cubes seem to be wet in door when crushing ice. Also in bottom ice maker the cubes are stuck together in tray in one clump. I lowered temp to -4 but it...


You need to check the door seal. If you place a $bill in the door it should have resistance all the way around as you pull the bill through. It may just be that the doors need adjustment.. If you are able to maintain -4, the ice maker heaters may not be working properly. Also, you want to check the water valve to make sure that you are getting cold water to the icemakers as hot water coming into the fridge can also cause this. If this is the problem, you can use a longer coiled line for the water inlet valve.

Nothing is cool no ice or anything but the fan in the freezer and the fan bottom rear are working continuously


If your icemaker is producing small cubes, hollow cubes, huge cubes, or a solid slab of ice, one of the first things you want to check is the fill level. And it's not as difficult as you might think. (Hey, the hard part's wrenching that bottle out of Pookie's little fingers!) Unplug the refrig, pull the icemaker - usually one screw underneath, either 2 more or hooks above the cube mold - and unplug it. Take it to your sink and melt out any cubes with hot water. Then plug it and the refrig. back in, leaving it unattached from the freezer wall.

Manually start a 'harvest cycle' (see below) and hold Pookie's bottle under the fill tube. You'll have to wait a few minutes, because the water enters near the end of one complete rotation of the cube ejector, which constitutes a 'harvest cycle'. Regardless your type of icemaker, you're looking for 130-150 cc's, with most working best around 145cc's, but anywhere in this range should work OK.

(When replacing your icemaker with a new one, always check and adjust the water fill level this way too. You'll save yourself a lot of trouble.)

Kenmore icemaker


It sounds like the icemaker is making hollow cubes , and the unfrozen water in the cubes , after dumping , freezes and causes the ice shells to stick togather . This is a sign of " not enough water going into the icemaker " . Replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .

I have a kenmore elite fridg that is not making ice,but i have water at the door. modle # 50509990. THANKS.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker ( if there is no cubes in there now ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes when frozen , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils at the bottom of refrig in front , are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also check the plastic hose inside the freezer , to the icemaker , to make sure it is not frozen . If it is , replace the water valve , due to slow drip leak .

The water dispenser on the door works, but the ice maker won't make ice


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes after freezing , but doesn't refill with water , then replace the water inlet valve ( part that wall water line connects to on fridge ). If the icemaker does not dump and holds the frozen cubes , replace the icemaker . Also check the fill tube at the icemaker to make sure it is not frozen closed , due to a seeping water valve , and make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig of dust , lint , pet hair , etc.

The freezer door was ajar overnight and now the icemaker is leaking water


chances are alot of the ice melted overnight. remove all of the ice cubes, dry everything out and then wait a full 24 hours for the icemaker to produce ice cubes.

I have a Kenmore refrig./ model# 363.9741714


The problem is actually not the ice maker itself. The problem is the electric solenoid valve in the rear bottom of refrigerator. If you follow the water line on the back of the unit down to the bottom and replace the valve that it is connected to then your problem will be solved. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.

It isn't supposed to free wheel and the only solution that I know of is tumbler replacement. I have the same issue and am currently hunting replacement parts.
