Ice inlet tube may be frozen up inside of Fridge. Thaw it out with a hair blower. Shut of water supply and disconnect the water line that goes into the back. Use a flexable item at the connection to see if will go all the way through to the icemaker. I used a zip tie.

If you still don't have water going to the icemaker, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at bottom back right of your Fridge. Easy to Do.

    Check if you can insert a flexable item from the back of the Fridge water line inlet. I used a Zip tie. Shut of water supply to the Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker.

    The water tube that goes to the icemaker maybe frozen. Thaw from inside of Fridge with a hair blower.

    Re-connect everything and turn the water back on.



    If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at the bottom back right of Fridge. Easy to Do, just follow the color codes.. Good Luck

My icemaker stopped working but the water on the door still works what can the problem be model number 106.51552104


02fd7a9b-9a65-43a6-ae76-6bf68d211304.jpgThanks for the model number. If the ice slots inside the ice maker are empty try pouring tap water in and allow the water to freeze. If after the water freezes the ice drops into the ice bucket and the ice maker does not refill this would indicate that the side of the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve is defective on the side that controls ice maker water supply. If the ice maker just sits there and does nothing this would point to a defective ice maker. Depending what is wrong with the ice maker will determine what parts are replaced. Here is a list of those parts here=> Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.51552104 Ice Maker Parts and if need you may be able to find a complete ice maker replacement by asking.

Kenmore Model 106.55526400 icemaker not working


I need you to pour tap water into the ice maker to the top. Let water freeze and if the ice maker cycles and drops the ice into the ice bin and then does not refill the problem will most likely be the=> W10408179 Water Control Valve

If the ice maker does nothing and water control fills the ice slots the problem will point to the=> 8201515 Ice Maker Module

Ice maker stopped working...water works, ice tray has water, ice maker is turned on. curious if I should just replace the motor or if it could be something else


If your ice maker is not making ice and you poured water into the ice maker, that would indicate the ice maker is not cycling. If you have any make or model except a whirlpool, kitchenaid or sears kenmore, if you replace the ice maker, you will be making ice in no time. If you have one of the aforementioned brands, AND the ice BUCKET is mounted on the door, you will have to replace the electric eye boards on either side wall as well, as these often short, damaging the icemaker electronics in the process.

My icemaker just stopped making ice today....please help


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

Icemaker isn't working. Hot water pouring out


Most ice makers do have a defrost element below the ice maker. The problem you described is strange. I would like the model of the refrigerator and brand name. Unplug refrigerator and remove ice maker from freezer compartment now. If water continues to flow you may need the service line that feeds refrigerator turned off until I get your model number. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore 56541 side by side icemaker nor making ice The in door water dispencer works Arm on tray is on no water getting to tray


1.Bad water valve located in the back bottom of refrigerator.
2. Frozen fill tube going into back of ice maker. (common problem)
3. Ice maker not cycling. Pour water into ice maker cavity until near filled.
Wait a few hours and see if it dumps.
4.In rare cases, the switch in the ice maker body fails. Ice maker will cycle but not tell water valve to refill.

Replaced ice maker on kenmore 106.54582400 still doesn't work. Don't think any water is going to ice maker but I have water to door dispenser.


It's is possible that the dual water control valve on rear of refrigerator is defective on the side that controls water to the ice maker. The part number is 4389177 or 949403 Water Control Valve. Pour tap water into your new ice maker. If when the water freezes and dumps the ice there is no refill of water I would believe the water control valve is defective. Sea Breeze
