Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
My Ice maker just quit making ice. It has a PUR water filter and in the door water and Ice. The water still works but the water to the Ice maker is not working. Does the Ice maker draw the water to it or does a pump of some sort from the bottom send it up to the maker
There are two solenoid-operated water valves - one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. They're located near the water connection at the back of the fridge. There is no pump; the water pressure sends water to the icemaker whenever this valve is opened by the icemaker controls. Your symptoms sound like the coil is burned out on the valve. You can check it by disconnecting the wires and checking for coil continuity with an ohmeter. If the coil is open, replace the valve. Both valves might be combined into one assembly, so be sure you test both coils. Of course it's also possible that the trouble is in the icemaker itself, but a failed intake valve is more likely.
