SOURCE: no water pressure for ice maker or water despenser

Sounds to me that you attached a bulet piercing valve to a cold water pipe. If you did I would say the tiny hole that the valve put into the pipe has blocked up and causing your low water pressure. I have sen this problem a million times with that type of valve. You could try to close the valve and then open it back up. Sometimes this will clear the hole. If not I would replace the valve with the type of valve you have for your sink. there better in every way. You may need to have a plumber do the job for you but you will never have this problem again. Good luck

It sounds like you are in need of a motor module for your icemaker. This is the motor and gear that drives the icemaker prongs. The part number is

Sounds like you need to defrost.

if you can move everything out unplug it ,turn it off w/ doors open,you can put pans of hot water in the freezer to speed up the process 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes.After its completely defrosted Only turn it up to 4 or 5. Good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch Side by Side, top shelves dont freeze food, bottom does

majority of refrigerators today are equipped with an automatic icemaker. The water valve supplying the icemaker is a key component of the icemaking system, and it should be the first thing you check if the icemaker's performance is erratic or if the icemaker stops working. When the icemaker calls for ice, its switch closes an electrical circuit and energizes the solenoid-operated water valve. This allows water to flow through the valve and into the ice cube tray. The water is frozen into cubes, and the cubes are dumped into the ice bin. As time passes, strange things may happen to the refrigerator's icemaking capability. The cubes may be small or there may be a solid chunk of ice instead of individual cubes. It's also possible that the icemaker will stop working. These are all signs of a malfunctioning water valve. The valve is equipped with a screen on its inlet to remove minerals and sediments in the water supply. Over time, minerals and sediment build up on the screen and restrict flow through the valve, or even block it completely. Minerals that make it through the screen can cause the valve to stick in the open position, overfilling the ice cube tray in the process. This is a common problem in areas with hard water, but it can happen just about anywhere. Another malfunction that will cause the icemaker to stop working is a break in the solenoid coil winding. This is known as an open coil. The coil winding generates a magnetic field as current passes through it, and this magnetic field opens the plunger valve that controls water flow. A break in the coil winding stops current flow and this prevents the valve from operating. Test And Inspect The icemaker's valve is easy to inspect and test. First, gently pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and unplug it. Turn off the water supply to the icemaker by closing the shut-off valve in the copper waterline leading to the valve (Fig. 1). Use a screwdriver or nutdriver to remove the rear lower access panel from the refrigerator's back. Next, remove the fill tubing from the water valve. Use a wrench to loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting on the inlet side of the valve (above). Place a container under the valve to catch the small amount of water that will spill from the valve and tubing. Now use a screwdriver or a nutdriver to remove the screw holding the valve's mounting bracket to the refrigerator cabinet (Fig. 2). Pull the valve out of the compartment and remove the tube on the valve's outlet. Then, remove the solenoid's electrical contacts (Fig. 3).

What does Er 1F mean of the control panel?


I believe the 1F error indicates a problem with the ice maker. This could be an issue with the ice maker fan icing up, the fan motor failing or the PCB board that controls the fan. First try unplugging the power to the refrigerator for 8 hours. This may reset the error code. Next check if the fan is spinning freely. If the fan has iced up, then the motor could fail from the attempt to spin the fan.

If you add a comment with the full model number, I may be able to give you the parts information. (Look inside the refrigerator for the model number; there is usually a plaque with that data on the side of the fridge.) If your refrigerator is under warranty, contact Kenmore.

I hope this helps.

(If you turn off the ice maker after resetting the code, you probably won't see the error again.)

Kenmore 795 continually blowing cold air into frig


If the control will not change and the lock is lit, first try unlocking it. Press and hold the lock tab for 3 seconds. If nothing happens, try unplugging the power cord for 30 seconds and reconnect it. This will reset the board.

What is the Ultra Ice button for?


The extra ice button on your refrigerator will make your ice maker produce twice the ice basicly in the same amount of time it takes to make one batch by blowing more cold air across the ice maker module. If this answers your question please rate me and my knowledge. Thanks

Water doesn't enter ice maker tray


You probaby just have an air lock somewhere. Trace the tube to where it taps into the water pipe. Remove the hose and blow thru it.

Water is not flowing to ice maker but flowes thru door. the ice maker is cycling as it should but with no water


I turned off the freezer for a little while, then used my hair dryer to blow hot air where the water flows in to the ice maker. In a few hours it was making ice again.

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make


Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker stopped working


I have the same problem with my whirlpool every once in a while, and I found out that if I run a hot air dryer at the back of the fridge where the water tube comes in and along the ice maker it loosens everything up. I think that for some reason the water freezes in the tube somehow and prevents a full cycle. When I am using the hair dryer i can feel the frozen ice come sliding out of the tube. Also I know when I am getting close to thawing everything out when the ice maker runs through a cycle while I am blowing the hot air on it. Good luck.

Freezer works fine but the fridge won't get cold


It sounds like cold air from the freezer isn't making it to the fridge compartment. This can be cause by a several things. The damper that lets air into the fresh food side is stuck in "closed" position, the temp sensor (t-stat) isn't working properly, the evaporator fan (in the freezer comp above the coils) isn't working to blow air up to the fresh food section. In some situations, the defrost cycle for the freezer section isn't working and the coils have frozen into a block of ice and air can't flow over them properly so you get not cold air to the fresh food section but the freezer still stays cold due to the block of ice.
