Kenmore Elite (Whirlpool) icemaker not working

System was working fine. Refrigerator was moved slightly to get behind it. The icemaker has not worked since. I followed the justintimer/catriver posts to get started on troubleshooting. The water line is not frozen, but no water is provided. I measured the voltage at the valve, and when I jumper L & V no voltage is provided to the valve. Likewise, jumpering T&H had no effect. In all cases, I had the infrared detector turned on and I manually moved the door and bucket so that the light went from blinking to full on. The whole system is acting like it is turned off or not getting power, but I don't know how to troubleshoot any further. Any help is much appreciated.

    replace main module assembly on ice maker, replaced emitter and transmitter. Show to be working properly. Jumped T to H but the motor will not run. No power is getting to the ice maker

    The ice dispenser froze up so no ice and no water comes out. I've thawed and cleaned the dispenser, but still no water. I'm thinking the water line is also frozen somewhere.

It sounds like you have done all you can before calling the repairman. When you moved it you may have pinched the line or restricted the water input somehow. Check this first.

SOURCE: Icemaker not working

The power to valve is not constant, it is only applied for an extremely short period, fault is either the infrared reciever or the main PCB, this is located in the back on the right in a black bpox , as veiwed from the back. Regards Advisor

Water dispenser and icemaker stopped working. Does this model have a filter that needs to be changed?

usually the filter is of an in-line type behind the unit or just follow the water supply pipe attached at the rear..1st check the water supply is actuallt getting to the appliance as the system splits internally to supply each function so for both to be not working suggests a water intake fault.. Thanks

Ice machine does not make ice

No guide that I know of .

Open the freezer door and see if the laser light on the right side , flashes twice , then pause , repeatedly . Close the flap on the left side , and the laser should stop flashing . If this is what occures , then the optics ( cut off of the icemaker ) are ok . If you open the freezer and no laser on the right , check the position of the "rake" inside the icemaker . Close the freezer door for about 1 min , and then recheck the position of the rake . If it hasn't moved , then the icemaker is bad .
If the light flashes 2 times then pauses , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker , and check later , to see if the ice maker has dumped the cubes . If did not dump , replace the icemaker . If did dump , and did not fill with water , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . Also check the black fill tube above the ice maker fill cup , to see if it is iced up , keeping the water from going into the fill cup . If it is frozen , then replace the water valve , due to seeping ( not closing completely ) , causing the slight drip , to freeze inside the tube .
This is the only guide I know of and it's called an experience guide .

About every 15 to 20 minutes there is a buzzing type sound that lasts between 5 -10 seconds. Then the compressor goes on and refrigerator works fine. Temperature in freezer and refrigerator are correct. It...

Sounds like you have an icemaker that is not connected to water . You need to turn the icemaker off at the icemaker . The buzzing , is the water valve behind refrig , being called for but no water to deliver .

Icemaker doesn't work and it was working fine. What do I need to check.

Look at the "fill" tube that fills icemaker with water. If it is frozen, replace water valve located behind fridge in compressor department, hint: it is blue... If not frozen up, it may be the icemaker... It's either the icemaker or the water valve UNLESS your ice bucket is located in the door, then it could be the "optical" computer board eye that "see's" accross the ice bucket....

Frozen ejector arm

sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.
