SOURCE: No ice from icemaker of Kenmore Elite model 106

I just resolved an issue with my kenmore elite side by side refrigerator icemaker (model 106).
It was expensive because I took the long road to fixing the unit myself.

My problem: No water going up to the freezer water dispenser into the icemaker but the water in front of the door working just fine.

-first thing i tried was the simplest. The Internet is clogged with this miracle fix of using a hair dryer to melt the frozen water line going to the dispenser output. This is highly unlikely for our model since the water line is protected within the refrigerator frame.

-2nd thing I replaced my water filter (thinking that there wasn't enough water pressure to trigger the solenoid valve. $40, and still no luck.

-3rd thing was I tested for voltage going to the solenoid. No voltage going to solenoid, so I wasted $30 for a new solenoid.....still no water.

-4th thing was I ordered a new IR sensor and receiver (since the reciever end is where the relay that sends the voltage to the solenoid to turn on and allow water to go up to the dispenser).
My IR sender and receiver appeared to be working flakey.
Installed, still no water. $58 BUCKS ON EBAY (EVERYWHERE ELSE $100+)

-I finally removed the freezer front little white door, I TURNED OFF THE FREEZER SWITCH SO NO VOLTAGE WAS PRESENT, removed the release latch underneath the freezer unit and disconnected, and removed the freezer unit to inspect it further.
When I removed the protective white cover that covers the mechanical wheel, I had a few parts come flying out of it. Turns out that the wheel accessories were damaged. THERE ARE NO REPAIRABLE PARTS ON THE FREEZER UNIT. I FOUND ONE ON EBAY FOR $39 BUCKS + $9 SHIPPING! $48 BUCKS, SWAPPED THE HARNESS AND BOTTOM COVER, AND IN 20 MINUTES, I WAS BACK IN BUSINESS. STARTED MAKING ICE IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR!!!!!

when in doubt, replace the freezer unit for $48 bucks! 7 out of 10 times it will fix your problems. All techs replace the IR set at the same time too which will set you back another $58 bucks.
Good luck! ;)

SOURCE: Kenmore 106 50522 water leak from Icemaker

Hi: Usually if the ice maker malfunctions that bad it will keep running and flood bad. If your defrost drain is plugged it will puddle water. Without knowing how much water you see it is tough for me to say precisely. Does the ice bin have a big block of solid ice or cubes? If cubes I would guess it is the defrost drain at the bottom of the fridge. If the drain is clogged the water wont get to the pan to evaporate. If the defrost water has nowhere to go it will puddle. This would produce more water on the floor in a humid area than a desert like I live in. If so look at the bottom of the freezer in the back below the metal panel. Usually there are slots above it. There will be a hole at the bottom of a shallow rectangular funnel. Turn off the fridge and put your food in a cooler. Pour some warm clorox water in the hole, a fairly strong solution. It should eat out the mold that grows in the base of this non refrigerated line. If something like a frozen pea got in the line you might have to use a pipe cleaner to snake it out. Good luck with this, Jeff

My ice maker on my Kenmore Elite has stop making ice. The water still works, but it no longer will make ice. What can be wrong with it, and how can I fix it?


If the water flow works, I would check the wire that controls the water flow to the icemaker. It shuts off the water when the tray is full and fills the ice maker when it senses that more ice is needed. It typically is over the ice tray. This can be dislodged and reseating it will solve the problem.
Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem. Thanks.

Kenmore model 106.56702500 icemaker will not work. There is no water filling the tray. The auger works, the light is on, water dispenses from the door. HELP!


You wil need to check the dual water valve at the back. However, a good place to start is by removing the fill tube from the back and make sure its not full of ice blocking the flow. At the same time have it cycling and listen for the buzz(very faint) of the water valve Call 704-932-7233 and we can ship you the part

Too much water getting to ice maker


The little cup that sits in front of the hose that dispenses the water, has frozen water in it . Check that first and if it's OK, then there is a small screw that you can adjust, look at your manual.

Kenmore icemaker won't work


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.
