Kenmore Refridgerator model 10656566400 Ice Maker not working

The water valve for the ice maker works when I swap the water connector to the ice maker solenoid and activate the water dispenser. I disconnected the ice maker water tube and blew air through it so it is not frozen. The optic sensor flashes 2 times and then pauses and repeats (is this a vault code and if so is there somewhere I can get the codes descriptions?). When I close the flapper door it remains a steady red.
I pulled out both sides of the optic sensors and cleaned the lenses. The temperature is set to 0 degrees but the ice maker still does not work. How can I test the emitter and receiver boards. The connector on the left side (P/N 2220398) has 4 wires (black, brown/white, Orange/black, white) and the right side component (2255114) has 7 wires (White, Yellow, black/white Brown, Brown/white, orange, black). How can I jump them to test the boards?

    My Kenmore ColdSpot (ame model) is also giving me a flashing code that indicates that there is a problem witht he optics. However they are not blocked or iced over. I got the code desciption from behind the kick plate grill on bottom near water filter.

The two blink signal indicates that the level sensor is blocked. If you hold the little door that senses the ice bin inward or closed since it flips out when you open the door, you should get a solid light on most models. So if you are getting this solid light, you sensor is working properly. If you close the little door and the lamp continues to blink, then your sensor is at fault. If it is solid light, then your freezer may not be cold enough. Check the temperature of the freezer.

Fix icemaker


Start at the water valve at back of unit and work your way to the ice maker. Make sure the hose at the back of the frig isn't block. Also that the arm on the maker is down and in the on position. If all this checks, then go back to the solenoid that turns the water on and off to the ice marker.

My ice maker quit making ice the other day. I finally got under there and checked everything out and it all seems ok. The problem looks like there is no water coming in from the supply line. Why would...


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

When your ice maker dumps and refills with water it will come out the water dispenser with the wires swapped. If it doesn't then I would have to blame it on the solenoid.

If the lines are the same size you can also swap them around to do this check.
Water inlet Valve

You can disconnect the line coming out of it and try the water dispenser to see if the valve is working. If it's getting power it should click when you try it and water come out.


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

I have an electrlux modelGLHS36EEB5 fridge.I changed the filter but the ice macvhine won,t start again even after pushing and hold the button for the colours


It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

No ice from icemaker model kenmore number of fridge is 106.56152500


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
