Kenmore Frig. mo.#363.50622000

5 posts in this topic

I have a kenmore refrig mo.#363.50622000 I have had it about 6 years, I change the filter every 6 months and it would fill the ice bin up over night, but the last 2 times it will only fill it about 1/3 of the way, could the ice maker itself be going out or is there something else that could be wrong?

I took the cover off of the front of the ice maker and it has 2 gears (1 large, 1 small) and a screw with a - & +, what is this screw for? Is it for the amount of water that fills the ice maker or is for how fast is dumps it? Not sure if I need a new one or not.

Check the inlet screen of the water inlet valve for sediment accumulation-- this restricts the flow of water.  If the screen can be backflushed, fine.  Otherwise, replace the valve. 

The adjustment you're referring to adjusts the fill volume.  But you should ensure that you've addresses the possible root cause for fill insufficiency (i.e., clogged inlet screen on the water inlet valve) before you adjust the fill volume.

I dont see a inlet screen on the valve, it looks like the line connects to the blue valve itself with no screen.

The valve you are talking about, is what regulates the water into the icemaker? If so how do I find the part # for it to replace it, searched here but came up not finding it.

This is a G.E. frig. with a Kenmore name on the front.  The valve is reference number #798.  WR57X10026.  Not much ice could also be caused by the freezer not cold enough, how much ice is made depends on how cold the freezer is, the warmer the freezer the slower it will make ice.  Check the themeratures in the freezer.

It's there.  All valves have 'em... unless Buttcrack Bubba removed it.
