Kenmore Refrigerator Ice maker Issues
« on: April 25, 2009, 11:42:14 PM »

My ice maker seems to be working, just not getting water.  With that being said the water dispenser works (on the door panel).  Different lines???  I did notice when taking the back panel off that there is a tube that is right next to the compressor (i think) that looks like it melted and I dont necessarily know where that was/went/goes to.  Its a good thing these appliances are too big for me to heave out the door, lol.  Forgive the lack of details, this is a shot in the dark after a really loong day!   ANY help is appreciated.

Model 106.50593003

Your day might get longer if you have to make electrical tests....which in this case you will. Either you can take a multi-meter and check continuity thru the water valve solenoid, or you can go to the icemaker itself and jumper V to L on the front to activate the water valve. If no water shows up in the icemaker, the valve is bad or the line is frozen up in the freezer.

If you are unfamiliar with electrical stuff, better call in a pro.

It's hard to say what melted back there by the compressor...there is a drain tube that  drops down from the freezer which hangs in that general area. The tubing to the icemaker is a white 1/4" plastic line that runs from the water valve. You know, the place where the water lline connects from the wall.
