Kenmore Coldspot ice maker arm woes
« on: October 20, 2008, 03:59:26 PM »
Greetings.  I've searched this forum and have not found my answer so I thought I'd ask.

My Kenmore Model # 106.9552611 side by side with ice maker is having ice maker arm troubles.
If I position the arm in the down position, water fills and it makes ice.  However, every time it dumps the ice, the arm pops up into the "off" position.  If I manually push it down, it fills, makes ice, dumps it and pops back up again.

I have no idea why this is happening and would just like to know if this is a repair or replace issue.

Also, would like to know if you know the ice maker model.

many thanks in advance.

Don

Your icemaker will need to be replaced. Instead of buying the expensive Sears part, I recommend the  plain icemaker replacement that you simply swap out the cord and feeler arm from your old unit. Use part # D7824706Q as the replacement icemaker. Certain other techs on here might recommend replacing just the module, but from experience I have learned that this is not only more difficult for the average Joe to do, it will not guarantee that the other parts, like the mold thermostat, etc, will be OK.  Getting the whole unit is more practical and will be under warranty should anything go wrong.
