Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
ICEMAKERS OFTEN STOP DUE TO A WARMER THAN USUAL FREEZER TEMPERATURE. MEASURE THE TEMP AND IF IT IS UNDER 10 DEGREES F. IT SHOULD BE DUMPING ICE. (IT WOULD HAVE FASTER PRODUCTION IF SET TO O DEGREES.) IF IT HAS A "NO WATER" PROBLEM YOU WILL HEAR IT HUM FROM TIME TO TIME AS IT CYCLES BUT DOESN'T DUMP ICE. THE EASY WAY TO CHECK FOR A 'NO WATER' PROBLEM IS TO TIE A 10 INCH OR SO PIECE OF LIGHT TWINE ONTO THE SHAFT AND CHECK IN A FEW HOURS TO SEE IF THE SHAFT IS WINDING THE TWINE UP ONE TURN PER CYCLE. IF TEMP IS COLD ENOUGH AND IT IS CYCLING THEN THERE IS NO WATER GETTING TO THE ICEMAKER. POUR A CHARGE OF WATER IN THE TRAY/MOLD AND IT MAKES ICE AND DUMPS ONLY THE ONE LOAD IS ANOTHER WAY OF CHECKING. THE NEXT MOST LIKELY PROBLEMS MIGHT BE A WATER LINE FROZEN DUE TO A SUPER COLD FREEZER OR A BAD SOLENOID VALVE. I HAVE NOT SEEN IT BUT I WOULD CHECK THE WATER FILTER ALSO. IF THIS DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM-YOU NEED TO GET THE MODEL NO. AND SERIAL NO. OFF OF THE NAMEPLATE. I BELIEVE YOU HAVE TAKEN IT FROM THE BOOKLET AND YOU ARE SHORT SOME DIGITS.
HOPE THIS HELPOUT , GOOD LUCK IN SOLVING THE PROBLEM
