Question about Refrigerators
My ice meaker on a kenmore model #106.56679500 made 10/05 just quit making ice. Theres nothing in the ice tray, or any sign of water going to it. The water dispenser works fine. Any ideas.
kenmore side by side model#106.53554200 ice maker does not work replaced circuit boards because there was no status light for ice maker control, at first ice maker over flowed making ice and couldn't be shut off so I shut off the water supply.then I replaced the circuit boards.Now no ice, status light works as it should now.problem very similar to the one in this article
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.
