Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Hi and welcome to FxYa, I am Kelly
Things can cause the symptom you describe. The most common one is the ice maker water valve Item 619 this link: I note there is a listing 619A and 619B. It is difficult to tell if one is an assembly and the other is just the water valve.
We make a test cord and plug it directly onto the water valve for testing AFTER we do a resistance check. The coil of the water valve should read resistance with ONE lead disconnected. If there is no resistance at all the coil is open and the water valve will have to be replaced.
Other things that can cause this are the ice maker module or wiring. The link below will help you in troubleshooting.
Here is a link for testing the icemaker:
Just a note on when the ice maker fill cycle should be seen. The harvest / sweep fingers will be nearly vertical when the ice maker water valve is energized for around 7.5 seconds.
You should also check your water supply itself to see if you actually have water to the refrigerator. A kinked line or debris in the saddle valve or water valve inlet connection will cease water supply.
There is yet another manual that can help you and that is here:
Between the 2 manuals many people can sort out the ice maker problems on their own.
If you need more assistance just repsond here and I will gladly help you.
