HI,

There is a valve at the back of the fridge that has two solenoids on it.

One solenoid is for the water dispenser and the other is for the ice maker.

You will need a meter to check the continuity of the solenoids.

There may be a fault in the ice maker.

Here is a link on how to check your ice maker.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Check to make sure the water hasn't frozen in the tube that it should fill the tray with. Please let me know if this isn't the problem and I can further assist you. If frozen, you should thaw out the freezer to get it working again.

Good luck

Make sure the metal lever on the ice maker is in the lower on position. Check that the water valve for the 1/4 inch supply line is attached to the fridge and to the valve . Screw that water valve all the way in and then all the way out.

Possibly need to lower the temperature in the freezer. Take note how much water is dispenced into the trays when a batched is deposited. If not enough possibly check the water if it is not freezing. ie insulate the open pipe area.

Icemaker not working


The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

It's not making ice. It's not even getting the water flow in order to make ice but the water dispencer is dispencing water.


If it will kick a batch out if you add some water to it then your water valve needs replacement. if it has ice in it but wont spit any out then your ice maker is bad. Some nice repair pictures: HERE

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.

The water will not come out of the dispencer.


There is one water valve but two solenoids, one for the icemaker and one for the water dispencer. If power is getting to the solenoid then replace the water valve. No power getting to the solenoid then the switch at the dispencer is bad.

Icemaker


Do you hear it trying to draw water into the ice tray? If so, there might be an internal problem you can't fix yourself. especially since the fridge is dispencing water. Is the arm inside the ice maker pushe down? This is what tells the ice maker to fill and make the ice.

Let me know if this helps.

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).
