With your limited input , all I can do is suggest some things for you to try..
First off, are you sure you have water coming to the back of the fridge? No water, no ice. Secondly, Can you gain access to the ice tray inside the ice maker to see if it is frozen with excess water ? If it is, you may need to thaw it out to free it up to allow it to cycle. If no ice buildup is found....
Can you tell if the icemaker is actually cycling? If you listen, you can here the inlet valve open to let water in and then you should hear the motor that rotates the mold tray operate ( may take between 10 - 20 minutes so be patient) If you don't hear any motor activity duing this time.... You may have a defectice ice maker assembly and may need to replace it. Hope that helps...

Well, that wire is likely the cause of your issue, somebody probably bent it, and now it gets caught on the door or a basket or a food item or what have you, and since it cannot move, the ice maker will not make ice.

Elite trio


Hello bigmikeegator
Welcome!

You said, you have the Kenmore Elite Trio Bottom Freezer. You moved your refrigerator to a new home and removed the bottom freezer door, but can not seem to figure out exactly how to put it back on correctly.


It's too much for me to tell you myself.
This is easier!
Page 9 shows you how to remove and reinstall doors.

Ice maker stopped making ice


hi there,

sounds like the i/m is making ice. if you have ice in the bucket, it means that the only problem is the dispensor. if you have frost anywhere, the problem is with the actuator, which is the ice pladdle. you may have a broken spring or just the ice paddle need to be replaced.
