Check that the solenoid activating water to icemaker is working and that cubes are not getting stuck inside the icemaker.

    Check the following suggestions from repairclinic:

    "If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order:


  • It
    may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice
    maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised
    position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these:




    • If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire.



    • If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire.


    In
    either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make
    sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the
    freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


  • The
    ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage
    using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also
    replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if
    necessary.



  • The ice maker head assembly may have broken
    parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small
    plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice
    maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can
    just replace it.
  • "

    Check also that there is no water leak on the icemaker, and that lines ar not frozen. Additionally check that the icemaker is not keeping cubes inside, in this case it is a faulty evaporator fan.

Icemaker will not make, cold water works fine, have changed inside filter nd outside filter I added before I knew there was one inside


Refrigerators with both ice and water dispensers have a dual port electric water inlet valve. This inlet valve is the plastic part usually on the back of the refrigerator where the house water supply connects to. This dual valve has 2 electric coils that open to let water in depending on if you want water to a glass or if the icemaker needs to fill with water. Your problem seems to be the half that fills the icemaker may be bad. The valve comes as 1 complete part for both water and ice.

How do i fix ice maker


Could be 2 different problems. Inlet water valve is a dual valve (2 halves). 1 half feeds water to the door dispenser, the other half fills the icemaker. The icemaker half could be bad or blocked up with sediment causing a no fill situation. 2nd problem could be the icemaker itself which sends power to the inlet valve when it needs filled. Usually the inlet valve fails first but you need to test and see.

Kenmore coldspot model 5155 2101 we just replaced the ice maker. I can fill it with water, it freezes and dumps but does not refill. the water dispenser on the door works fine


From what you are stating this is a dispenser refrigerator with 1ce/water through the door. This type refrigerator has a dual sided water inlet valve. It looks like the half that fills the icemaker may be bad or may have the power connector that came loose. This is the part on the back that the house water line connects to. It should 2 wires going to each of the 2 coils (total 4 wires). If wires are connected, I would say 1 coil is bad and the valve needs replaced. Since you already replaced the icemaker that rules that problem out.

No water from the Icemaker and Water Dispenser Dual Inlet Valve


if no water is going to both icemaker and water dispencer, check water supply to refrig. into valve.
If ok and valve is being energized by dispencer arm and icemaker, then it's probably a bad water valve

I have a kenmore coldspot side by side water comes out dispenser but there is no water flow up to ice maker,also just replaced dual water celanoid


Hello, so you just replaced the water inlet valve correct? Here is a video on how to test the icemaker by removing the cover of the icemaker and connecting the L to the V water should immediatley come from the water inlet valve to the ice tray. If it did not and you heard the water valve actuate then there would be an issue with the icemaker in the unit. click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlYCJr9dc3E if you have any further questions message me back Thanks

Water would not stop running into icemaker, now


The water inlet valve(where the water supply connects to the back) may have been staying open and now has burned so it don't work at all. . You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it.

Icemaker not working


The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

Ice maker/water dispenser


are you still making ice in the icemaker?? if so then you most likely have a bad water inlet valve (back of unit right side behind the panel) The crappy thing is the icemaker and the water are on what is called a dual valve you have to replace the whole thing.. to test this you will need to sw the wires if you want to get into this let me know
