20 Most Recent Kenmore 51lb. Clear Ice Maker Questions & Answers

Most likely you have a refrigerant leak and there is not enough to freeze the ice. The compressor will run almost constantly trying to cool the unit. Sears repair can give you a better answer since this is a Kenmore unit. They have a toll free number you can call and maybe they can give you a cost estimate so you can determine if you want to fix or replace the unit.

The mechanism that senses when the ice tray is full is not working. Different ice-makers have different sensing mechanisms. I think yours has a thermistor (a temperature sensing device) near the top of the tray to sense when cold ice reaches it. The thermistor could be faulty or for some reason not contacting the ice. The best solution is to remove the ice-maker, let all of the ice melt and water evaporate at room temperature, inspect, and re-install. If you are not comfortable with that, completely defrost your freezer (you will probably have to have your refrigerator off and the freezer door open for a few hours). Ice-makers of all types can get bits of frozen water (ice) in places where it fouls things up, so a thorough defrosting can cure many different problems.

First off, check that the water inlet line is clear.

Once on a refrigerator ice maker, the part of the water inlet hose inside the freezer ha a solid chunk of ice blocking the flow.

Try not to lay it down.oil will run out of compressor back into evap coil. if you do then when you get to where its final resting spot make sure it sets up with no power applied for 24 hours so oil can migrate back into compressor.

You do not add freon to these units, they are sealed, no access ports installed from the manufacture. If you are actually low on freon than you have a leak and will just end up in the same place you are now. Some things to note since you have not posted a model number. Does the water come into the reservoir when you first turn it on? Does the water circulate over the freeze plate shortly after it's done filling? Is your condenser coil on the bottom behind the toe plate completely clean of dust? With the toe plate off are all of the components running, like the compressor, and fan motor after your fill time has expired? Please add a complete model number from the sticker on the unit for better advice. Pleazer Appliance...
