Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
We are usually on "cube" but hit the crushed ice button and since then, we can't get the ice dispenser back to "cube"
If the icemaker doesn't make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn't arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn't kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).
Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.
Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the problem where the icemaker's supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to the "self-piercing" type). You can do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.
NOTE: The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator, and then travels to the icemaker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it; be sure to inspect any seals or diaphragms. Unplug the refrigerator first. Unless you're skilled at home repairs, this job is better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson.
With the above troubleshooting your icemaker should be back in place.
