Question about Refrigerators
No. Replacing the ice maker is not that hard but that is not the problem. You acutely have two problems. The first of witch being that you have terrible water conditions where you are. The second problem is caused from the first. The solenoid valve that feeds the ice maker is damaged from the contaminants from the water and is allowing water to trickle through this valve. This is why you have ice cycles. Have the ice maker solenoid valve replaced and install a filter in-line before the ref. This should take care of the problem and get you back in business. Hope this helps. Good luck. please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking.
Refer to your user manual to determine where your fill volume adjustment dial is and turn it down. One-half to one full turn usually is approximately equal to 20 to 40 cc, and the correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).See if there are icicles hanging from the fill spout and/or on the ice maker's sides. If there are, this means your water inlet valve is leaking and will need replacing. Refer to your user manual for a part number, or call a technician. Check to see if the ejector seal is cracked. If it is, replace it. Refer to your user manual for a part number, or call a technician.
