Re: fridg no longer making ice or water
It could be a frozen filter. If it is a fridgidair made unit they did have that problem with the filter freezing and put a fix kit out to correct it. you also should check he water valves make sure you are getting power to them when you press the water arm. If its electronic it could be a bad dispensor control bord. with kenmore its hard to say because different manufactures make there products.

You dont say if it quick making ice. First check to see if water is coming to the fridge from under the sink. If so that is a two chamber valve on the back of the fridge one side water for drinking and one fror ice making check the two coils. That probably has to be repaced. If its still making ice but not comming out the a swithc or lever is not activating in the door.
it seem that you have a clogged freezer drain. you can fix this by first turn off the unit leve all door and let it thaw about 4 to 6 hours or longer. if this doesnt cure the problem then repeat above procedure but this time open the plastic cover on the freezer and clean out the drain make sure all drain are unclogged also while your at it check the operation of the drain heater pan underneath the unit. and lso check the operation of the defrost timer. hope it help you.
make sure your fridge is level. if water just keeps flowing, there may be an obstruction in the solenoid valve that lets the water flow or stops it. it's in the rear of the fridge where the water line attaches. usually blue or white plastic on a brass mount. you'd need to shut the water off, let it depressurize, disconnect the pipe (some water will come out), replace that valve, or take it apart to clean it.
I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.
This sounds like the Maytag bottom mount that has a High Voltage Control Board problem. Does this have the freezer/fridge temp. display/controls on the left hand fridge door? Whats the model number and on the manufacture tag does it something on it like Code:0304 maybe? Let me know I may have an answer I do work on these for a living.
Not sure if this will work for you - I had a similar problem with a Kenmore fridge. I removed the ice tray and found a piece of ice stuck where the ice is made and dropped into the tray. Once I clear this obstruction, the ice maker worked again.
Also, check for the mechanism that indicates that the ice tray is full. This may be jammed or malfunctionin.
