  1. Water comes from water pipe, usually with a shut off valve (open??).
  2. Fridge has a small filter (for sand etc.) at inlet. (not clogged??)
  3. Water travels to solenoid valve, and waits for request. (do you hear it click when water requested??)
  4. Water usually goes to a fine filter..(these fail (plug) quite regularly).
  5. Water goes through storage in back of cool section (Inside fridge- is it full of water?).
  6. Water goes to ice maker on fill request.
  7. ?? Is the power switch "on" (to icemaker)??
  8. ?? Is the full / stop filling paddle/bar up?
  9. ...ask me more questions
More likly than not- it has just frosted up and needs manual defrosting, or the water filter is plugged (assuming the cold water dispensor is slow)

Sound the the bi-metal is starting to fail or the freeezer is not getting cold enough. If you put a thermometer into the freezer and it gets below 8 degrees and does not harverst then your looking at the ice maker which is a Whirlpool part number 4317943. This a kit will replace most of those style ice makers. It is the quickest and easiest way to solve your problem. You should be able to get it for between $85 to $160 depending on where you live and who you buy it from.

The problem is most likely your water control valve for the ice maker. There are 2 one for ice maker and the other is for the dispenser. Fill your ice maker with tap water. Let it freeze and if it dumps and does not refill then the water control valve part number 2188542 let me know if you need more help, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: ice maker does not make ice

I had the same problem. There is air in the line therefore you need to dispense about 3 gallons of water from the dispenser and that should slove the problem. Also, take a clean soft cloth or paper iowel and wipe the ice make sensor (if you have one) and the reciever. There is one on each side of slightly below the ice maker. Should be a flashing or steady red light ....follow the flashing red light to the other side.

sounds like the water inlet valve/solenoid may be bad. I've had some to work awhile then quit. It could be trash inside of the inlet valve. If it has a water filter on the frig try changing it also. But try the solenoid first by turning your freezer section thermostat to its highest reading to for 24hrs.to see if the solenoid is going to work.

Kenmore cold spot side by side


Compressor may have quit. Have you cleaned the condenser where the heat from the system is transfered to the air? If not clean it out under the front back of the toe plate. this should be cleaned as often as every six months.
