Kenmore Side by Side not producing ice
« on: February 24, 2009, 11:32:31 AM »
My icemaker just quit working one day.  I checked the forum and removed the icemaker, checked for any broken parts, reinstalled and tried to do a test run.  I jumped L to V and the tray filled with water (which was pretty awesome to watch).  I then jumped T to H but it did not do anything.  The water froze, but the icemaker didn't move to harvest the ice.  It just stayed in the 2 o'clock position.  Would I conclude that this icemaker is bad or do I still need to test the freezer temperature even though the ice did freeze?

Thanks for any help.  

P.S. I love this forum.  I get the motor to my washing machine today and hopefully once I get that installed, it will fix that headache!  My husband would be so estatic if I could get the icemaker working again, too!

You need to replace the ice maker if the ice maker wont turn when you jump out T and H
You could replace the head by itself but it is not economically sound to do so. better to get a generic modular ice maker and use your old IM wiring harness.
