First i would check the water valve in the back. One side is for water.. the other side is for the ice maker... If you have a ohms meter check selonid for continuity look for blisters of plastic on sides showing in would be bad... You can also make a test cord to energise the valve by passing the icemaker to tell if valve is good. ALSO This would put water into you ice maker telling you.. you have a clear path for water to icemaker You only need to plug in for few seconds .. to keep from over filling icemaker if vavle good and water comes thu

My ice maker on my kenmore refrigerator is not working. a red lightg is flashing on the ice maker. everything looks ok, no ice though!

I had the same issue with my frig. I read on line where Someone open the freezer and ran a hair dryer in it. So I tried it I turned off the water draned the water side out left my door open while I had the hair dryer running for a half hour then turned the water back on and sure enough after the line unfroze and it started making ice. there was a little blurb on the freezer about how much water presure was needed. I found this information just by doing a google search on my model frig.

The water line was frozen (no ice being made and no water available in the door), so I took everything out of the fridge and freezer, let it all defrost, plugged it back in, now I have water in the door,...

Grab a blow dryer and aim it at the water tube that supplies water to your ice maker. More then likely it is frozen with ice and will need further melting to clear it out so that your ice maker will work again

Ice maker working sporadically

The ice maker is probably ok. It is most likely the temperature of the freezer. Remove items that block air flow up the back of the freezer. Make sure the door can close securely. You may have water pressure that is too low to fill the ice tray, take time to confirm water pressure to the back of frig. Remove the line and run water into a bucket for several gallons then secure it back to the frig. Make sure the line is tight and does not leak before and AFTER you roll it back into place..

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice

Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.

the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.

Ice maker freezing up

The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.
