Question about Kenmore 53603 / 53606 Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
95% of ice maker problems are the motor module. See http://tinyurl.com/ykln8r for what it is and if it matches your fridge. Basically here's what ya need for ice... 17 degrees (F) or below, water fill solenoid working with water flow, t-stat on ice tray working OK and motor module turning.

I have seen two issues in my experience that may or may not apply to your situation. In one instance the water feed tube or trough stooped the flow of water to the ice maker and this produce a small transient water leak initially and then it stopped working and leaking eventually as the blocked tube did not thaw. The other issue was ice in the ice maker that lodged in the blades of the ejector and prevented ice production.

We had the same problem. The plastic dial on the motor module was broken. The repairman told us that the dial is not sold alone and the module costs between $70 and $90. We got a module out of another refrigerator which wasn't working and replaced it. The ice maker is doing great!

I had the same problem and it was the motor module. I replaced the module and the ice started coming. It's not a very hard do-it-yourself job, either.

Happens to mine also. You will find lots of solutions to check that motor, try the switch, yada yada. Mine simply ices over in the tray and the Ice has issues releasing. I tap the old ice off the ice makers "fingers" and it starts creating ice again.

1) Vacuum the dust build-up from the coils every month. 2) Install a water softener or a 5 micron carbon type filter to remove limestone (scale) build-up, if using city water.

I had similar problems during the summer weeks. Cleaning the dust in the componet and grill above the top door and then turning the freezer nob all the way down (coldest) seemed to do the trick. Now it works fine during the winter. Hope this helps!

There are as you can imagine many possible causes for you no ice condition. I will give you the most common problem for the year model you have. I hope this helps you.
You will need to remove the ice maker from the freezer compartment to check it. Once it is repaired if the following information does help, and you reinstall the ice maker, it should go through a cycle automatically within an hour of your reinstalling it in the freezer compartment.
Once you have the ice maker out of the freezer compartment you will need to remove the white cover on the end of the ice maker and look at the center of the large white gear. If the part inside the hole in the center of the gear is broken or looks twisted, you will need to replaced the module. The module is the part that has the large white gear and is held in the ice maker by 3 phillips head screws. It only comes as an assembly. You can't get just the little broken piece.
