    My Kenmore Refridg/freezer stopped making ice. The water dispenser is fine. The red light is blinking beside the ice maker on/off switch. What does that indicate and how do I resolve short of calling a service man?

The ice maker has stopped making ice. The red light is flashing (in the freezer. Part ot technician?


Hi, The blinking red light is just a sensor that shuts down the ice maker when the door is open so that it will not dump. This should have no effect on why the ice maker is not working unless the little door that blocks the beam does not return when the door is shut again...

Ice maker will not make ice


If you have water sitting in the trays and no action is happening, then i suggest replacing the ice maker complete as these spares are pricey and take a while to get to you , (In the hope that they are correct). On some units there is a small test button. If you have one, push or switch it to activate icemaker. Often this resetting brings the ice maker back on line.
