In my freezer, there's an infrared beam positioned over the top of the ice bin. If the bin is full of ice, it blocks the beam and no ice can be made. In addition, when you open the freezer door, a small (2x3") door opens in the freezer to block the beam, again to prevent ice from being made while the door is open. Is anything blocking the path of this beam from one side of the freezer to the other?

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.


Ice maker water not stopping
The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

Ice maker issues - what to do next?


I have not found Kenmore to do the best with the icemakers; however, you want to make sure that the lever on the side was replaced properly. They have a slot that they need to go into. The other thing that is important is to see if the motor is running on the ice maker. It could be at fault, but if that is the case those units usually are better off replaced as a whole, which runs around $200. You will probably get them cheaper through an appliance dealor rather than going through Sears and there probably is one in your yellow page section of your phone book...hope this helps.

Moldy Ice from Ice Maker


Hi: Does it have a water filter? Sears parts is offline at the moment, so I can't tell. Most of the newer models do. The 596.xxx tells me that it was built in the Amana factory for Kenmore. Most likely there is a water filter in the top of the fresh food compartment. It has been growing mold in storage, and the lines too. It's on the upper right side, behind a housing with a tab to release it. Lower the housing and remove the water filter. Did you receive the bypass plug with the ref.? It looks like a large plastic wing nut with the same fitting as the water filter. If so put it in and flush the system with city water. Most city water has chlorine to clean your lines. If you install a new filter without flushing the lines it will remove the chlorine as it's supposed to do, but the lines from the filter wont get clean. If you don't have the plug, buy one. Flush the system and then install the filter. I hope this helps, Jeff
