Ice maker not working

I have a Kenmore side by side Model 106.55606400.
The Ice maker is not working. The fingers were @ 6:00.
I removed the ice maker and hooked it to a 120 outlet.
The ice make ran and completed it's cycle. The infrared
light and switch appear to be working. I got only 108 volts
on the volt meter when I checked the ice maker receptacle.
What would make the voltage low?

Re: Ice maker not working

The icemaker will run at 120v ac +- 10% so 108 v is within range altho marginally. since you have the icemaker removed. remove the front cover and check to see if the drive gear is broken or if the 2 center pins that hold the gear in place are twisted or broken. this is most likely the problem. the motor module can be replace very easily part # is 8201515

the normal home position for this icemaker is at the 2:00 position facing the front of the icemaker. if it is any other position the motor module is almost always the culprit..

Ice maker not working

It must be aproximatly at least -18C in the feezer for the ice maker to work, it must be able to get water and it must be able to heat the tray and turn the ejecting fingers (if it has them), sometimes the ice maker gets condensation in the contacts inside or jams the fingers, try removing the ice maker for a fer days and letting it warm up and dry out, short of this I would need to know what kind of icemaker it is

Ice maker jammed. Ejector fingers in incorrect position.

Is the position off - or the icetray heater failed?
Just before ejection - there is a heater element that warms the ice for easy discharge.

Check that the heater is working.

Reply with the model # of the fridge for more exact help.

Ice maker not working Kenmore model 106.55226400

Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working

A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.
