The defrost thermostat or the heating element under the icemaker are defective. If you have a way to test it I can assist you. Like a multimeter or OHM meter. But sometimes the replacement of parts is more expensive than the ice maker itself. I will help you through this if you like, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    PART NUMBER AND MODEL SEARCH FEATURE

    http://appliancepartseast.blogspot.com/

    I looked up that model number and we will need to try to match your ice maker with a generic. It is very rare that someone puts their model number here on Fixya. Many people get looked over because they don't list their model number. But I always try to post a picture. and give them a chance for help. But it always means I have to fill out a code form before sending to prevent spam. If you need me feel free to email me at appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

I replaced the inlet valve on my kenmore frigde, but the icemaker is still not getting water. Water is running good from source, and the feed tube to the tray is clear and not frozen.


Sounds like an ice maker problem. Can you advance the ice maker? Is it a whirlpool style ice maker? As long as the water line from the valve to the ice maker is clear it must be either the ice maker or the optics (if so equipped).

The water feed to the ice maker is frozen - I can see that it is plugged with frozen water. I was able to get the frozen water out of the chute that leads to the ice maker but I can still see the ice...


Hi,

This usually means the water inlet valve that feeds the ice maker is bad. It can bypass a small amount of water and that water runs so slow that it freezes in the tube you are clearing.

The valve I am talking about is behind the frig on the bottom, it should be blue in color.

To clear the ice from the tube use hot water and a turkey baster, or a hair dryer.

The part number for the water valve is 4389177

Kenmore refrigerator side by side ice maker not making ice.no water going to the ice maker??.


Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice maker stoped working


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.

Refrigerator not making ice


Make sure the water line is clear and not kinked somewhere. It's also possible that the water line orifice is frozen inside the freezer at the ice maker area and blocking water flow. You can thaw it out with a hair dryer - point it at the water inlet - be careful

Too much water getting to ice maker


The little cup that sits in front of the hose that dispenses the water, has frozen water in it . Check that first and if it's OK, then there is a small screw that you can adjust, look at your manual.
