Question about Nor-Lake Norlake Refrigeration 4' x 6' Kold Locker Walk-In Cooler - 6' 7'' High w/Floor

1 Answer

Ice Maker has some black stuff in water

Have Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.9535580 without instruction booklet.
City water is excellent, with no black stuff any other place in the house. Someone told me there was an internal filter that needed to be changed. I would change it if I knew where it was---what do you think is causing this and what can I do about it.

Check the ice-maker itself, it has a teflon coating (like a frying pan) that sometimes flakes off leaving little black flakes in the ice. if this is the case you have to change the ice-maker.

I have a Kenmore model number 106.51552104 my ice maker stopped making ice.. The water on the door still works but no ice what should I do??


I believe I answered this one on another page of unsolved problems HERE. Thanks for the model number. If the ice slots inside the ice maker are empty try pouring tap water in the slots and allow the water to freeze. If after the water freezes the ice drops into the ice bucket and the ice maker does not refill this would indicate that the side of the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve is defective on the side that controls ice maker water supply. If the ice maker just sits there and does nothing this would point to a defective ice maker. Depending what is wrong with the ice maker will determine what parts are replaced. Here is a list of those parts here=> Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.51552104 Ice Maker Parts and if need you may be able to find a complete ice maker replacement by asking. Most people don't like replacing ice maker parts. I am here should you have questions or comments, Sea Breeze

Kenmore - ice maker won't produce but water in door fine


Most of the times the solenoid ( electric valve that lets water from the line when the ice maker calls for it) leaks and this little water freezes up inside the filling tube for the ice maker , in tnis case the solenoid has to be replaced.

Moldy Ice from Ice Maker


Hi: Does it have a water filter? Sears parts is offline at the moment, so I can't tell. Most of the newer models do. The 596.xxx tells me that it was built in the Amana factory for Kenmore. Most likely there is a water filter in the top of the fresh food compartment. It has been growing mold in storage, and the lines too. It's on the upper right side, behind a housing with a tab to release it. Lower the housing and remove the water filter. Did you receive the bypass plug with the ref.? It looks like a large plastic wing nut with the same fitting as the water filter. If so put it in and flush the system with city water. Most city water has chlorine to clean your lines. If you install a new filter without flushing the lines it will remove the chlorine as it's supposed to do, but the lines from the filter wont get clean. If you don't have the plug, buy one. Flush the system and then install the filter. I hope this helps, Jeff

I have a coldspot kenmore


Tim,

At first blush it sounds like the water valve that supplies water to the ice maker is sticking or leaking and letting too much water in.

If you can, watch how much water fills into the ice maker tray (very boring stuff). If it overfills the icemaker tray, then the water valve or timer is malfunctioning and needs repair or replacement.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working


A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.
