Kenmore coldspot ice maker not working


check to make sure the water hasn't frozen in the tube that it should fill the tray with. Please let me know if this isn't the problem and I can further assist you. If frozen, you should thaw out the freezer to get it working again.

Good luck

Our ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why?


Your icemaker is not getting enough water to adequatly fill the tray. Before you adjust it, check the status of the refrigerator's waterfilter. If it's old and clogged replace. Next, wait for the tray to fill, and check the level water before it has a chance to freeze. (or take the frozen tray out and allow to thaw). The tray should be about 75% or more full of water. If not, there is an adjustment that can be made to extend the amount of time the solenoid stays open (which means more time for the water to fill the trays). Good luck!

Kenmore refrigerator side by side model 25358682890 cold water dispenser does not work. ice maker works.


Your fridge has a dual solenoid water valve - one side controls the water flow to the dispenser, the other to the ice maker. It's possible that one side burned out while the other is still good.

Here's a photo of what it looks like:

Here's a link to the replacement part:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/218658000/0046/253/Model-25358682890/0582/0165000?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=25358682890&subCompDesc=Icemaker&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=Side-by-Side&blt=11

Before replacing the part, make sure the solenoid is in fact, bad. Get a voltmeter, and touch the probes to the electrical contacts on the solenoid, like so:

If the meter barely moves, the solenoid is bad.

If both solenoids test out OK, the other possibility is that the water supply line is kinked or clogged. Also, if your water dispenser has a filter (also on the back of the fridge), it might be clogged. My money's on the solenoid, though.

Good luck, and if this helps, please my answer!
Also, thanks to Zenzoidman for the pics.

I have a GE Profile refigerator ( model # PSCS3VGXAFSS ). I have had it for a year. It is still under warrenty. The question that I have is that the ice maker just stoped making ice. It goes through all of...


There is a dual solenoid water valve. One solenoid controls the water dispensor the other is for the ice maker. If its under warranty you should definitely have it looked at.

Kenmore 5483300 side by side. no ice!


your fridge will have a dual water inlet valve, one for water and one to supply water to the ice maker. it could be that the solenoid on the valve that supplies water to the ice maker is not working.

Ice maker stoped working


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice maker not making ice


The most likely cause is the water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out (beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control.

Water dispenser fine but ice maker not working


Hi. A good way to check the ice maker water solenoid valve is to swith the wire lead from the dispenser water solenoid valve to the ice maker water solenoid valve. Now push the water dispenser lever and water should come out your ice maker fill tube. If not, either the fill tube is frozen or the ice maker water solenoid valve is bad. Take the 1/4 inch tube that runs up the back of your freezer off at the ice maker water solenoid valve and blow thru it. If you can't, the tube is frozen. If you can, the valve is bad. Good luck, Mack
