Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore Coldspot 106.56236400 Ice now and then

During warranty, Sears came out and worked on ice maker twice to get it to work. Now that it is off warranty, the ice maker works now and then. Once it went about 6 months not working and overnight...starting working. Normally it goes a couple of weeks or months and then works for a week or two and goes out. What's up with this??? What can I do, without taking out a second mortgage to pay for a repair person??

Replace the icemaker unit, also make sure if you are on a well system that your pressure is over 30 lbs, it is adviseable to purchase an icemaker kit, which will come with a new water valve as well. either one of the two may be at fault.
you can make this repair yourself.

these have to be in correctly to lock back in and allow the unit to function. Try removing the bin again and be sure there isn't any small pieces of ice trapped anywhere. Also make sure there aren't any broken pieces from the bin. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Ice maker pump


that sounds like a company thats not willing to back there work if you ask me. Im to assume that there ws no ice before replacing the ice maker correct. and if thats the case , then perhaps the water valve was bad all along and you didnt need a ice maker.

Kenmore Coldspot Ice maker is not working on our side by side refrigerator


Just above the tray that holds the ice cubes is a wire bar. If the bar is down, it will make ice. If the bar is up, it will stop making ice. When there is enough Ice in the tray, when the bar comes downm, it will hit the ice. If the bar is not completely down, no ice will be made.

I bet the bar is stuck, or you don't have a water supply to make ice (or it's plugged - de-ice the freezer).
