I would say any ice maker line kit should work, they have a line tap and vinyl tubing that runs to your water supply solinoid valve on the back of your frig.

Hotpoint icemaker works after doing the test cycle but quits after the one cycle.

Measure the temperature in your freezer- it should hover between 0-10 degrees F... Most icemakers require less than 13 degrees F to satisfy their internal thermostat. Water and most foods freeze at 32 degrees F, so if your machine is running somewhere in-between those two temp ranges, your icemaker will exhibit the symptoms you describe... If your temperature is steadily low enough, but the unit won't cycle on it's own, you will have to buy a new icemaker. GE Ice Maker Assembly IM6D This kit is great because it comes with a "free" water valve and only costs a few bucks more than a kit with no decide!

Go to repairclinic dot com AnD type in your model number. they will have a fixit kit with all the icemaker gear in it for the big bucks, as well as the individual parts separately. Check that your fill hose has not failed or that the icemaker mech assembly is not cracked or broken.

Hook up icemaker to water source

If you are doing a new installation, the icemaker should either come with an installation kit or recommend one. The kit comes with all of the hardware needed to basically "tap" into your existing cold water line. Your refrigerator is already prepped for the icemaker so it's just a simple bolt in operation.

Frigidaire refridgerator leaking in icemaker

Try buying a new ice maker kit and replace it by doing it yourself. This would help you in saving money.

I recently bought a ice maker kit at lower price from they delivered it faster compare to others available in market and that too at low cost. Isn't that Good?
Try searching with compatible model no on Partsimple website.

My Kenmore side by side refrigerator model 106.5686*601 is leaking water from the ice maker inside the freezer.

Icemaker leaks are common and cannot always be solved. May need a new Icemaker. Ofter you can obtain a kit from Lowes (use a Whirlpool kit.)

The kits are generic, usually one size fits most. Like "paper or plastic", the choices are usually "copper or plastic"(tubing), and both are good. Copper makes a bit more noise when the solenoid operates for water to the icemaker or water chiller. Depending on your needs, you can buy a kit that has a self tapping water saddle valve or, if you already have a valve installed, you can buy the replacement tubing and be OK there too.
Hope this helps. Regards, WoobieDog

The most likely cause is the water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out (beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control
