Kenmore elite side by side modle 106.55616400

Hello
We have a 5 yr old kenmore elite side by side modle 106.55616400 that just stoped making ice. I did look at the manual trouble shooting and the items listed did not fix the issue. I suspect the emitter or reciver sensor. Does anyone know how to test the emmiter or reciver? Or is there something else to check?
Thanks Gus

    I have same model and the ice maker just stopped making ice. I changed the water filter thinking it might help, but it has not. Do i have to call a repair guy out or is there something I can do?

    We have had that problem in the past with ours. The first time we called the repair guy, and the ice maker was just frozen. We have leared to just leave it alone, and in a few days the line will thaw out, and it works again.

Compressor is cycling on the overload protector. If refrigerator is over five years old the warranty may be expired. I which case I never recommend replacing the compressor if the customer is to bear the full expense.

Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Kenmore Coldspot Ice Maker Modle #106 56622500 I


these have to be in correctly to lock back in and allow the unit to function. Try removing the bin again and be sure there isn't any small pieces of ice trapped anywhere. Also make sure there aren't any broken pieces from the bin. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Kenmore Elite side by side model won't stop making ice.


It appears your ice maker on/off switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My ice maker quit. Just 1 yr old. Made a bunch


Make sure that the bin is back in all the way, and that the position of the bar is in the "on" position.

Freezer running, ice maker not producing, hot in middle divder.


The dividing section should be warm, to keep unit from sweating. (by design). Cleaning under the refrigerator was what cooled it down. You cleaned the condenser. The condenser allows the refrigerent to cool down. When it was dirty, the condenser could not get enough air to cool down.
