Question about Kenmore 5553 / 655532 / 55534 / 55539 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice is not ejecting

I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side.  Model number 106.5666501.

The ice is not ejecting.  The padels are frozen inside the ice cubes.  I took the icemaker out and defrosted the ice cubes.

I replaced the ice maker completely free of ice and dry.  The next cycle, the padels did not completely rotate the ice around and now the padels are frozen inside the cubes.

Sounds like the icemaker thermostat is opening too soon which turns the heater off.  The easiest thing to do is replace the whole ice maker which I have seen pretty cheap on ebay.  If you want you can test these part with an ohm meter.  Check the heater for resistance.  If it is ok then replace the module and thermostat.

The Refrigerator's ice maker makes ice, but will not eject the ice. Have tried to reset the ice maker but will not eject, any ideas?


The ice maker has heater that thaws the ice cubes a little before they are ejected. This keeps the from sticking to the form.

Timer ice maker kenmore side


If the timer piece you are referring to is behind the square white cover, and it's moving slightly back and forth, you should visually check the ice making area it's self to see if the ejector fingers are jammed with ice, or against the ice stripper. Ice Maker jams can be caused by reduced water pressure to the unit mainly from the water filter, your water filter in the toe kick should be replaced at an interval of 6 months to a year, regardless of filter status light. When water pressure is low, not enough water fills the unit and the undersized cubes can become lodged or stuck in the ice maker while being ejected, equally so if there is an over fill situation caused by other failures the ice maker can't eject at all.

Stopped making Ice cubes on S/S kenmore refrig. water nnot flowing in tube that runs up the back


This problem is the dual water control valve coil for that side. If you fill the ice maker with tap water and it cycles then the problem is most likely the dual water control valve on the rear and near the floor. Also make sure that the fill tube inside back of ice maker is not frozen over. Let me know the model number and I can tell you the part number for the replacement, Kenmore model numbers look like this for example 213.256489 Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not working Kenmore model 106.55226400


Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

Trouble with ice-maker


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.
