Question about Kenmore 56549 / 56542 / 56544 / 56546 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No Ice... Ok I have a Kenmore side by side 596.52679200.. It just stopped making Ice. I took the Icemaker off to look it over and I saw that the inside coating was peeling off. got a new I/M and put it in. I have checked the filler tube (Clear) no ice stuck inside. I do get water out of the door, but I have noticed that the water line from the back of the Fridg. to the top of the filler tube does not have water all the way to the top. It is 2" short of the top not sure if I have a bad value? Can I test this some how. I cant get the I/M to make any nose at all when I move the arm up and down... Also FYI i have replaced my water filter when I got the new I/M just to be sure.....Also the auger does spit out ice when I full the ice bucket

The hose that goes to the ice maker comes from a solonoid operated valve located at the bottom of the refrigerator (under the cardboard cover usually .. there are two valves .. one is for the water and the second is for the ice maker .. the ice maker valve is likely stuck or clogged (or might have an open coil) .. you can hear the water one click when you operate the water dispenser .. that makes it easy to locate ..you can also hear the ice maker one click when there is a demand for water by the ice maker (but that doesnt happen very often).... sometimes the valves are ganged together (one unit) so both have to be replace at the same time ... sometimes you can disassemble the valve and clean it if you are really handy but replacement is usually easier and you dont risk leaks so much .. on the hose that goes to the ice maker, once its disconnected from the valve you should be able to blow air thru it if its not frozen or clogged inside the freezer .. ..

Icemaker not making ice


If water is also not com out of dispenser then filter should be changed. If water dispenses but ice ice is not being made, the sensor arm or infrared sensor may be stuck or blocked. If sensor is OK then ice maker needs service.

Oviously you need water first. You'll have to check that the fill valve is opening and that the water is making it to the icemaker. Make sure the fill tube that feeds the water from the back of the frige to the icemaker is not frozen. Be aware, just because you get water at the dispenser doesn't mean the valve to the icemaker is ok. If you are getting water, you need to check that the icemaker is not jammed, sometimes ice can fall back into the icemaker, or get caught in the ejector. You may need to remove the icemaker and run the mold under hot water to melt the ice. If it was jammed, you'll need to check that the fill level is correct to prevent it from happening again, both too much water and too little water can cause problems. There is a heater that helps loosen the ice from the mold, because of that there is a thermal fuse to prevent it from over heating. It will be molded into the wiring harness supplying power to the icemaker. If you have continuity through the fuse it's ok. If you don't the heater shorted and you will need both a new icemaker and that wiring harness.

check inside the ice maker are the forks pointing up or down if they are down them the module on front of ice maker is broken it needs to be repl, but you said is 8 years ol d so i would repl the whole ice maker since the mold might be peeling off due to age they only last like 4 years or so

Apparently lowering the temperature by 5 degrees in the freezer compartment will keep the input water tube from freezing. It is working fine now!

Ice is not ejecting


Sounds like the icemaker thermostat is opening too soon which turns the heater off.  The easiest thing to do is replace the whole ice maker which I have seen pretty cheap on ebay.  If you want you can test these part with an ohm meter.  Check the heater for resistance.  If it is ok then replace the module and thermostat.
