Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
So then our model 106.56543400 Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator's ice maker is not making ice. This has happened before, but it was always because a piece of ice would be stuck in the white teeth-like things in service tray (the trap door at the top of the freezer where the ice falls out), and it would start making ice again once the ice was pulled out. This time however, there's no ice in the service tray. I tried to feel for any ice stuck under the teeth but there isn't any. The teeth aren't budging when I try to move them either.
I found a similar question here at http://www.fixya.com/support/t210332-kenmore_side_side_refrigerator_ice_maker , but then the model's different so I'm not sure if the solution is the same. The best solution there by fridgetech says
''If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry youwon't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. Theejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run thelength of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill withwater. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and willneed to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.''
If the teeth that I described are the ejector blades, I'm not sure which way to turn them since they are facing forward (since I'm not sure which way is clockwise). Also where would the fill tube and water valve be located?
Sorry, I'm not very good with appliances (still in high school). Thanks for any help.

cheapest and up,, check for a frozen water line, defrost the entire unit, any of the components can be iced up, once defrosted,, if you still have a problem, then check the inlet valve ,

SOURCE: Dear Experts, I have a Kenmore
Directions for testing an icemaker water inlet valve. Before you begin to test your icemaker's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box.
Here is a link to the water valve in case you find that it is bad.
