Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Why did my ice maker suddenly stop working?

This is a Kenmore Elite side-by-side, made in 1/03. The water and ice discharge are in the door. The water is still discharging but the ice maker has stopped producing. The "Ice Maker Control" panel is showing a blinking red light. I have cleaned the ice from the ice chopper (?) gears on the bucket and the seat. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a Thermostat problem!
How old is the ice maker?
If is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite ice maker is not working & red light is blinking

Most likely a problem with the main ice making unit itself. I bought mine at ebay for $49 including shipping. Very simple to replace. You just swap the wiring harness and bottom plate. Takes about 20 minutes to do.
Make sure you do the IR led test. If you think you IR sender and receiver are bad to, $57 on ebay for the set. Most likely not your water solenoid in the lower back of frig (it gets the signal to turn on from the receiver module of the IR board.
Probably not your water filter (cuz the front water dispenser still probably works right?)
And probably not a clogged or frozen line.
Good luck. When it doubt, trust ebay!

The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Problem with ice maker


With your limited input , all I can do is suggest some things for you to try..
First off, are you sure you have water coming to the back of the fridge? No water, no ice. Secondly, Can you gain access to the ice tray inside the ice maker to see if it is frozen with excess water ? If it is, you may need to thaw it out to free it up to allow it to cycle. If no ice buildup is found....
Can you tell if the icemaker is actually cycling? If you listen, you can here the inlet valve open to let water in and then you should hear the motor that rotates the mold tray operate ( may take between 10 - 20 minutes so be patient) If you don't hear any motor activity duing this time.... You may have a defectice ice maker assembly and may need to replace it. Hope that helps...
