if you are getting water from water dispenser on door, but no water into the freezer icemaker... here is what worked for me (simplified, for i took extra-work steps that were not necessary).
pull your kenmore trio (ours is 25cu ft, french-door with bottom freezer, purchased dec 2006) out so you have access to the back. Turn off water supply. Take out two screws that hold water supply to icemaker injector tube on the back of the frige; this is about 2ft above floor, and a straight-shot from back into the icemaker. With screws out, you can take off the rubber boot from the tube, then pull the tube straight out the back. The tube is probably plugged with ice. Turn-off the icemaker (inside the freezer section). Re-insert the tube... give a few hours for temps to stabilize. Then turn on the icemaker, and turn on water supply.

Probably a simpler solution would be... remove everything from frige and freezer. Turn off Kenmore Trio for a day or so (remove power, open doors). Turn back on, and let stabilize for hours, then restock the machine.

  • the defrost timer on your machine is actually integrated within a control board/air diffuser. hopefully that is not the problem (expensive).
  • i would start by testing the heater and bimetal thermostat in the freezer. (note: the bimetal thermostat will only have continuity when below 40 degrees.)
  • the heat you feel between the doors is normal (if it is not too hot). 
  • some of the heat that is released by the machine is intentionally released between the doors to prevent condensation.
  •  if it seems warmer than usual then you might need to clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow under the machine is not obstructed at all. 
  • if the coils are dirty then they will not be able to release the heat properly and the heat will be released in other areas like between the doors.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer Mod. #795 75544401

The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.
