Kenmore Refrigerator 59562990 icemaker worked then stopped

Good day,
Could be air, but if 48 hours passes without ice, it's not the problem.
To trouble shoot the ice maker, it is best to follow a step by step testing procedure. Ignore any step that does not apply.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Ice maker not working properly

Make sure the fill tube going directly into the icemaker is not touching the part that receives the water, if it is touching the water will spray all over and not go into the cavity

The water despensor and the ice maker both stopped working

sounds like your folter may be plugged up or frozen, the water goes to the filter first then to the dispenser and ice maker look there first.

Ice maker stopped working

pull the front cover off of the icemaker and see if the drive gear is broken (there are 2 tabs in the center of the gear make sure these arent twisted or broken as well) if so replace the module on the fron of the icemaker. if that checks fine check for frozen fill line..
