SOURCE: Oue Kenmore Coldspot ice-maker quit working. Any

Wake up one morning and Boom no ice left in the bin. What happened and What can I do to fix it without calling someone? Some ice makers will get a piece of ice in the wrong place and jam the extraction. Get a hair dryer and heat up the ice maker to release the fouled ice cube and that baby will start going. No water in ice mold?Do this easy test: pour some water in the ice maker mold and wait. If it kicks out a batch, but it has no water in it, most likely the water valve is bad. water%20valve%20for%20water%20and%20ice%20through%20the%20door.jpg Watervalve for SxS box Since it is the cheapest part and you can do it yourself replace it. If it turns out you need a new ice maker then you have a new water valve already to go with it. What if the ice maker has ice in it but won't harvest any? One cheap and easy item for the do it yourselfer to replace is the ice mold thermostat. Check for voltage between T and H if you have 120 volts then the bi-metal (inside that ice mold thermostat) is bad. If it's good you will have 0 volts. ice%20mold%20thermostat%28modular%29.jpg Ice mold thermostat Located in the plastic housing and seated against the ice mold is that thermostat. This looks intimidating but is easily fixed by anybody who could change a spark plug. There is no wiring. One more thing to look for: You can put a jumper between L and V and this will activate the watervalve. Have rags ready! If you are a cheapskate and want to be frugal and not buy a new ice maker or a new head(brain) head1.jpg modular crescent ice maker you may want to remove the main gear and clean the copper plate behind it. That plate gets dirty and won't allow for a good contact with the water valve connection and does not power up the valve...Shhh! They will all be doing it! Modular crescent Icemaker test points: With NO power to the icemaker, and ice ejection fingers in the freeze position: Your ohm meter should read 8800 ohms between L and M, and 72 ohms between L and H. With power ON to the ice maker: If meter reads 0 volts between L and N you have no power to the ice maker. If the meter reads 120 volts then you have power to the ice maker. If you have 0 volts between L and H heater is off if you have 120 between L and H the heater should be ON. If you have 0 power between L and M the motor is off. If you have 120 between L and M then the motor should be ON. If you have 0 volts between T and H the thermostat is closed If the meter reads 120 between T and H then the thermostat is OPEN. If the voltage is 0 between N and V the water valve is closed. If the meter reads 120 water should be filling the mold.

Check and clean the condenser coil on the bottom of unit first. Sounds like it may be dirty/clogging and making the head pressure higher than normal resulting in it running forever to keep cooling. You may also have a very slow leak of refrigerant (depends on how long it's been at 45 degrees. Other than that, it's had a good life. Much longer than the new units today.

Cooler wavers between 35 and 45 degrees.....even after turning the controls to colder. Would this be the thermostat?


Probably... OK I am going to fill you in on something here that almost no one knows. The True coolers all use a thermostat that reads the coil temperature and has no idea what the box air temperature might be. They are all pretty much the same but have a few different variations. For most beverage coolers though they are getting the coil down to around 13-15 degrees and then shut off and stay off until the coil gets back up to 38-40 degrees.This means that the air temperature can be anywhere from 23 to 50 degrees at any given moment but the product temperature is going to average out in the middle. If the box is full no problem the temperature swing will not be anything like this because the product will keep the temperature more stable. If the box is empty you will need to put SOMETHING in there to help stabilize the temperature before panicking. 3 or 4 gallons of water will do. Also if you want to sleep better at night put a thermometer in a glass of water in the cooler to get a better idea what your product temperature really is and don't put too much faith in the cheap dial thermometer mounted to the outside of the box. Oh and set the dial on 5 and if that doesn't work the thermostat could be a problem... they are the weak link in these units.

I have a 1996 kenmore coldspot mod. 106 9658685 and have noticed that ice cubes take a while to freeze and refrigerator is at about 45+ degrees. Runs constantly. Repair or replace?

The compressor on my Sears Coldspot is running at 175 degrees.


Refrigeration compressors used in domestic refrigeration are known as high side compressors, meaning the dome is at high side pressure and temperature.

As long as the condenser fan was running, and the coil was as clean as you could get it, then all is OK. There is no standard temperature that it runs at, and it has been tested to run hot anyway. The fact that you cleaned underneath will allow it to run a little cooler anyway.

Freezer works but cooler isn't cold


Try unscrewing the light, bulb mine did the same thing I couldnt figure it out. It turned out to be the light switch! Everything is fine now.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.
