It sounds like the solenoid switch has collapsed. Sometimes the reset like you did will allow the starter to return for refire when plugged. But as time goes by the spring gets lazy and sticks. To take this all apart is somewhat of a nightmare. So I don't want to suggest a DIY and cause you more stress in hard times. Maybe another refrigertaion engineer would be happy to help out on site. have you tried that option? I am in Oz so I cannot recommend one for you that would be local. But try your pink pages and see if there is a local bloke that is willing to fix it cheapre.

Thanks for using FIXYA

The hum click sound that you are hearing is your Compressor. Ice-O-Matic is well known for there compressors going bad. What they had done was put in compressors that were to small for the size and amount of ice that they were creating. Replacing the compressor on this unit with a service tech is roughly about 200 to 300 dollars depending on where you live. They can have you up and running within that day. My recommendation is to call a Refrigeration company and NOT a Heating and air Conditioning company.

I am not familiar with that one but check the intake,and coils,and clean them ,Make sure the fan for condenser is working also,if it will make ice for a while,it sounds like a heat problem with the condenser.

Either the freezer temperature is too high or the internal thermostat inside the ice maker is faulty.
The freezer temp must be 5 degrees or less for the ice maker to work correctly.
If the freezer checks out OK you will need to replace the ice maker.

Check your coolant levels. If the temperature isn't much higher than normal, you may be fine, or you may have a Coolant Temperature Sensor going bad, and reporting the incorrect temperature. Even though the thermostat was replaced 8 months ago, it is possible it is already going bad again. I believe this is more of a Coolant Temp. Sensor fault though. The cooling fans are On when the AC is on. With the AC off, the cooling fans come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature, and cut off once the temperature is back in range. The Coolant Temperature sensor shouldn't cost much, and is easy to replace. I would start with that, top it off with coolant, and then maybe change the thermostat.

Thi over filling ice maker is cause but the ice maker water valve laking water by when it is supposed to be closed. The only remedy for this is to change the water valve. The water valve is item 800 this link:

The high pitched wine from the evaporator fan can either be the fan bearing or ice build up. If your not noticing the freezer temps warm up I would suspect the fan bearings. If you notice things like soft ice cream then you may have an automatic defrost problem. To isolate the possibilty of an automatic defrosting problem and post procedure fan test perform the following manual defrosting steps:

1. Unit unplugged
2. Remove freezer contents
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for 2 hours
(Messy - rags and mop required)
4. Wipe residual water in freezer compartment
5. Plug in unit
6. Reload freezer contents

Check for fan whine and normal temps in 4 hours.

If the fan is no longer whining you probably have an automatic defrosting problem. If it still whines you can try lubricating the fan motor bearings with "Zoom Spout" oiler (Any Appliance parts source carrys this for under $3.00) Do not use regular oil! It will cause the fan motor to sieze in about 1 month.

Worst case the evaporator fan motor would have to be changed:

Item 610 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5131037&diagram_id=22223826#d22223826

^- Note there are 2 types of fan motor. One with thermistor and one without. Both are listed under item 610.

Replacement plastic parts for the ice maker can be found here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5131037&diagram_id=22223828#d22223828

There are several internet sources for all of the parts above. Links are provided for reference.

It's a Kenmore alright


Do you have any frost buld up in freezer compartment?if so sounds like a freezing issue.If no frost build up is your fan running in freezer part if not you may need evap fan or a manual defrost.Your fan may have ice stoping it from turning.If your fan is running you may need to pull off your start switch located on your compressor.Shake it around if you here noise like burnt parts in it you will need a start switch.And remmember never turn your fridge up full blast normal is good or you will freeze it up. Good luck:)
