Re: kenmore side by side ice maker

There are as you can imagine many possible causes for you no ice condition. I will give you the most common problem for the year model you have. I hope this helps you.
You will need to remove the ice maker from the freezer compartment to check it. Once it is repaired if the following information does help, and you reinstall the ice maker, it should go through a cycle automatically within an hour of your reinstalling it in the freezer compartment.
Once you have the ice maker out of the freezer compartment you will need to remove the white cover on the end of the ice maker and look at the center of the large white gear. If the part inside the hole in the center of the gear is broken or looks twisted, you will need to replaced the module. The module is the part that has the large white gear and is held in the ice maker by 3 phillips head screws. It only comes as an assembly. You can't get just the little broken piece.

The ice maker overflows the ice tray, so water runs down the side of my freezer.

if it has worked for 3 years then I would guess just a new tray

Kenmore coldspot ice maker not working

check to make sure the water hasn't frozen in the tube that it should fill the tray with. Please let me know if this isn't the problem and I can further assist you. If frozen, you should thaw out the freezer to get it working again.

Good luck

Is your ice tray filling with water? If not, then I would suspect the water inlet valve ( - Item 10)

If it does fill with water, but does not eject the ice cubes to start a new cycle, I would suspect the ice maker motor(Item 37). BUT if it is the motor, that part costs $91.22 and you can replace the entire ice maker (Item 100) for $157.95

My GE side by side model #GSS25LG refrig/freezer is not making ice cubes. The auger works but there is no water in the trays to be frozen. What turns the water on to fill the tray?

theres a solinoid valve in the back that opens up and the water goes to the ice maker, on the front theres a micro switch that sends the power down to the solinoid and makes it open up.

I have this model and it has stopped making ice for two different reasons. These solutions may not fix your particular problem, but they worked for me.

Problem #1: the water inlet to the ice tray is frozen shut.
Solution #1: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. The water inlet is the black rubber nozzle on the right-hand side that points down into the ice maker. Squeeze the rubber nozzle between your fingers to break up any ice that may have formed inside the nozzle. This will clear the water path into the ice maker. Lower the ice tray door.

Problem #2: an ice cube is stuck in the ice tray.
Solution #2: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. Look for any pieces of ice that were not completely ejected from the ice tray - they are usually partially ejected and are very easy to see. Carefully (but it may require a good deal of force) remove ice cube from tray. Lower the ice tray door.

I hope this helps.

Kenmore side by side ice maker

un familiar with model, so am basing this on all the commercial ice makers I repair. Check the temperature probe that goes from the cct board to the ice bin if it has one ( very likely) if corroded where wire enters the stainless cap then is most likely faulty. if it is not registering correctly it can cause the unit to stop producing ice altogether or can also overproduce. It may just be a thermostat instead of a probe and again these are common items to fail. As for no water going into the unit, the solenoid valves that are used are also prone to failure of the coils and so wont open although probes / stats are always the most common fault,

If the plate is frozen solid and has oversized cubes formed, make sure the probe/stat is still attached to the evaporator plate, if it is then it will need replacing as it cant see the ice is formed, so just keeps freezing, never going to defrost to release the ice or trigger the water to come in, again very very common in commercial ice makers.
