kenmore refrigerator model # 52552100 no ice
« on: August 02, 2007, 02:56:24 PM »
Kenmore model # 52552100 no ice.   No water in ice maker tray.  Fill tube is not frozen.   Optics working according to diagnostic testing.  I replaced entire ice maker (2198597).  Still no water getting to ice maker.   Could my inlet valve be bad?
Thanks

Hi davelita,

 I could not find the model number you listed, 52552100
Please take another look as it should have three numbers in front of that with a dot.
For example
Code: [Select]
???.52552100
Hope you find our site helpful.

Being you said it has Optics and looking at the ice maker part number you put in I am going to take a guess and say this is a whirlpool made refrigerator as I could not find anything with that model number.

Being whirlpool made this guide should help you check the water valve.

Sorry, its a Kenmore 106.52552100.   The water dispenser works.    I can manually put water in the mold and the ice maker will produce ice.
Thanks

Yep, Whirlpool made.

 For no ice or low ice production, always confirm normal (0-5 Deg F) freezer temperatures before beginning diagnostic checks. The ice maker is designed not to run if the freezer in  not in this temperature range.

If your freezer is cold enough and you are sure the optics are working then I would go ahead and replace the water valve.

The water dispenser works.

This only tells you that there is running water to the refrigerator.
The water in the door uses a different part of the valve then the ice maker.

Change the water valve and let us know how it goes.

I measured the water valve coil and the ice side was shorted out.   Installed new water valve and the ice maker now has water and is producing ice.  Thanks for all your help
