Kenmore model 253.5695360 ice maker not working

I have a kenmore side by side refrigerator model 253.5695360 about 3 years old and the ice maker is not not working. The water valve is not turning on to send water up the the ice maker. The ice maker itself seems to be operating normally as the on/off arm on the ice maker automatically goes up and down when the ice maker is cycling (the ice maker thinks it is ejecting ice and going through its normal cycle, but the there is no water present). Is there a control board of some sort that is suppose to be sending the 120V to the valve (for example, I checked the other valve for the drinking water dispenser and it gets 120V when the dispenser is pressed on the front door)? Or is the mechanism inside the ice maker where the 120V signal is set from to the valve?

SOURCE: Freezer is too cold, ice crystals. Refriderator

I'm not sure which one you have, but try this: Look for the area where the air passes from the freezer to the refrigerator side, in the wall somewhere between them. Make sure that there isn't something blocking the passage. This is a good place to start.

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.

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
