Question about Kenmore 53632 / 53634 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Icemaker stopped producing ice so I removed. It had a burnt electrical smell. Two days later I opened the freezer door and it looked as though everything was thawing. Now the refrigerator portion is not cooling either. Need help.

Ice mker may have not been the problem . there are heaters in the back and they may have been causing the smell and if they overheated due to a failed defrost therm. ck for ice build up in back of freezer . this would also cause ice build and a blocked evap coil .. and thus no cold to the fresh food . mm

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

The icemaker on my Maytag Refrigerator MFD2560HES bottom freezer with French Doors has not made any ice for about two weeks. Before this, it would go for a few days and not make ice and just when I was...


Mine (same model) does the same thing. The only way I get it to work is to open the freezer, and move the metal ice lever arm up and back down again. Then it starts. But after a day, the arm stops moving and it breaks. I can't stand it anymore.

Before moving into my new house with the mfd2560hes, I had to replace an ice maker in my whirlpool refrigerator. So, I guess I'll be googling this maytag model and buying an icemaker motor replacement kit.

if I'm successfull, I'll post it here.

No longer making ice. no sound coming from the motor if it is trying to make ice.


Hi lots of things to check.

1) are you getting water at door ? - if so water is on and filter is not blocked or installed backwards.
2) this does nor rule out the solinoid because it has two sides one for water and one for ice. ( we will come back to solinoid)
3) Is the ice maker swich turned on ? located inside freezer door to the right of the icemaker looks a bit like a wire coat hanger grab it and push it up for off or down for on ( you should hear a click)
4) Is you fill tube blocked with frozen ice ? located inside freezer door at back of ice maker, looks like a plastic hose going through the back wall at an up hill angle. if so heat it up with a hair drier to melt ice. or pull part out from back of fridge and soak in hot water.
4) Check control board. (This was my problem)Turn off power, open freezer locate a white plastic square cover with sides about 6 inches long, located at front of icemaker prise out the plastic button located on the right side with a flat screwdriver pull white cover off, ( check power is off) look at wheel behind cover if you see any melted parts then this is your problem. remove three screws and pull wheel and front panel towards you it will come away. dont turn wheel by hand - if you need to line up spline turn part in ice maker instead, also note on - off switch ( wire coathanger thing attaches to this ) Top right. sounds harder than it is. sniff part, can you smell a burnt out smell if so order a new part on line. ( this part controls all the action. turns water solinoid on to fill tray, tips tray etc,
5) water solinoid has had it, located at back of fridge behind cardboard, water line from wall attaches to this as does water line to cold water and water line to ice maker, this is a double solinoid so it is posable for ice to work and not cold water or vice versa, turn off water and power remove part and take to your electrical part supplier for testing and or replacment.

ICEMAKER FROSTING UP


Try to take some ice from the dispenser. Remove the glass and open the freezer door to look down inside the dispenser chute and see if the trap door has re-closed. If it remains open warm, humid air will enter the ice bucket and gradually freeze the cubes together. Trap door remaining open is generally caused by a rusted electrical coil which pulls the door open electrically then sticks, unable to re-close. Coil is located behind the panel that operates the dispenser. Relatively easily accessible.

I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a frog sound. I found the solution.

My model number is 596.75523400. The sound will stop when the freezer is opened. It will stop again when the freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the light. The ice drawer was full but it had stopped making ice.

Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a screwdriver.
  • Take out the two freezer baskets
  • Remove the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
  • Unplug the icemaker electric connection at the back wall. Depress the clips on the side of the plug and wiggle it loose.
  • There are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall. Remove the lower screw and unscrew the top two about ½ way out.
  • Slide the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
  • Put the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until they fall out.
  • Take the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs the flow of water into the ice maker.
  • Re-mount using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
  • Replace freezer door and baskets.
