Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

We purchased the Kenmore Elite with the bottom freezer about 2 1/2 years ago. About 2 months ago, the ice maker stopped working. My husband tried everything he was supposed to and it still doesn't function. The freezer is set at 0 degrees f. and refrig. temp. at 39 degrees. We're extremely frustrated. Thank you, Eleanor

I realize that your unit does not have thru the door ice but this manual : https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf

should help your husband solve the mystery if he can use a meter and have a jumper wire..

Just use the icemaker testing part.

If you can not download the manual this link is VERY helpful:

I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and...


OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:
12_17_2011_1_36_01_am.jpgIf it looks like this model, I have the service manual for it with all the testing procedures.If it doesn't, see if you can get a model number off the unit. They make about 4 different model for this unit.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.


Ice maker water not stopping
The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

My ice maker isnt making ice. i think i need a new filter. could that cause this.


Hello, my Kenmore was also not making ice about 2 years ago, but everything else worked. It seemed that the tube directly inside the freezer where it was filling the ice trays was frozen. My husband used a hair dryer to unthaw the tube. It's been working every since. Also, my sister had a Kenmore Elite, with the same problem but her husband didn't know what the cause. So they also tried the hair dryer, and now it works fine.

Thanks

there are many reasons why a ref stops working, you have not given any symptoms of what happened before it stopped working. The best solution is to call Sears and purchase a "service smart agreement" which will cover repairs up to $500 per repair for a year. there are other details to the agreement. the cost is about $240, but it's the best thing going.
