Kenmore refrigerater
« on: July 09, 2010, 01:02:22 PM »
My ice maker stoped working.  If i pour water in to the ice tray it does produce ice.  My water dispenser works fine.  Can some one give me some suggestions.  Thanks.

This manual will explain what to check.

Pay attention first to the water valve and the fill tube through the back wall of the freezer.
It may be frozen closed.

I checked the hose,  It seems to be fine.  I took the hose off the water valve,  It released water for a few seconds when it tried filling up ice tray.  What else can i do?

How would i check that?  I took the hose off the water valve that went to the ice maker and when it tried filling the tray water did come out for about four or five seconds.

The tube through the freezer may be frozen and the water can not go through it.
Also,re-check the water valve fill time.
The manual states 7.5 seconds of fill.
If less than 7.5 the ice maker module is bad.

Early models had a problem with the fill tube freezing. There is a kit to fix the problem.  Where does the fill enter the fridge?  If it enters above the freezer side, you need the kit.  If it enters above the refrigerator, it doesn't need it.  If it enters above the fridge, clear the ice out of the line.  If problem reoccurs, replace the valve.  A search on servicematters should find the part number for the kit.  I'm not working that hard unless I get a beer icon.  :)

What I do is momentarily power up the valve with a test cord.
