"Thou shalt not offer up the excuse that the manufacturer's tag could not be located on the appliance; yea verily, this is bullsheist that doth stinketh in my nostrils."

The icemaker on my ancient "Kenmore" side-by-side will not shut off. Verily, our freezer runneth over.

While searching for the model number - which I haven't found YET, have mercy, and a little clue where that sonofagun is would be most gracious of the master - I did find the Modular Icemaker Service Sheet Part No. 628107-B.

Don't tell me, let me guess - that's the part number for the service sheet itself, right?

Enlightened one, I searched the back of the unit, and I removed the grille under the doors, breaking the left clip in my singleminded diligence. Where is that tag?

Anyway, it makes crescent cubes, lots and lots of them, and has a wire shut off arm.

First, do no harm.

remove the toe panel (kick plate) and look for a silver and black plate ribboted to the frame of the refrigerator...

 

Question. Is the ice maker arm going around the entire time? If not, chances are you have a water valve that is stuck open...

Prices subject to change upon customers annoyance....

If this is an older SxS look down above the toe panel by the hinge of the food side door where the bottom door gasket would hit the frig.  If not there look inside the food compartment on the side walls. This would be most likely a Whirlpool, G.E., Frigidaire, or Amana made box.  If the ice maker will not shut off, just keeps spitting out those ice cubes sounds like either the on/off arm is not in the head properly or the on/off switch in the head of the ice maker is stuck in the on position.  This is good!!!  Is summer!!!  Bag that cold gold and sell the heck out of it!!  LOL  If the ice maker will not shut off by raising the on-off arm might want to pull the ice maker and look inside of the head to see what is not happening with the on/off switch.  If this is the modular ice maker, has one large white gear on the head that says  "do not rotate maually" is common for the on/off arm to get knocked back out of the holder in the head and the ice maker will just keep making ice till it opens the freezer door and here they start spilling onto the floor, this is a true happening.  One of our customers came home from vacation to find just this mess. See if you can wiggle the arm forward into the ice maker head arm assy. to see if it will activate the on/off swirch. If not you will be replacing the head or the whole ice maker.

Thanks, my friends. I went for Pegi's suggestion and wiggled the wire thingie. Plunk, it re-engaged. A matter of a sixteenth of an inch. It felt OK if I just flipped it up and down, but moving it axially did the trick.

Cool, this arm gets pushed back in the holder and cannot activate the on/off switch and there we go with cubes to bag and sell......thanks for letting us know this fixed the problem.  ;)
