Kenmore Elite icemaker will not work
Posted 02 May 2005 - 01:17 PM
Does not seem to be anything happening. We checked the water in the door and that is working fine, so I assume the water line is okay. The ice crusher and dispensor do work.
We previously had the optical sensor blink when an icecube was stuck or something, but not this time. Acts like it has no power.
Is it just better to get a new unit? This one is 4 years old. I would rather not call the repair man since I can buy a new one for the price of a service call.

Are you referring to the LED on the dispenser control panel? I don't think your fridge has the optical ice control system.
The LED is not flashing (no light whatsoever)
I love those precious little LEDs, too! :goofus:
We preciously had the LED blink ...
You can remove the cover off the icemkaer module head and jumper out test points T to H to initiate the ice harvest cycle.

Well in that case you do have to pull out the icemaker, it is a pain in the:moondance:butt it is possible with a little twisting and turning, same test points as Samurai mentioned, have a cup ready to catch the water.:stooges:
Sorry for the confusion, but my icemaker sits from right to left with the motor on the left side. I do not see how I can access this part without removing the icemaker. Am I that dense?

Guess I was just lucky to get the temporary fix. The icemaker will not operate at all.
The Kenmore Elite 10652693100 has the Whirlpool icemaker, but the problem is: I went to the Sears parts store and they said I could not order the whole unit, because there was no part number for the entire unit. Can this be true?
Any help would be appreciated. I looked on a couple of parts outlets on the "net" and could not find the whole unit either.

Go there via the box at the bottom of the page. HOWEVER.......
I don't think thats your problem. These are notorious for freezing the fill tube, so much so that Whirlpool brought out a revised tube with a small heater incorporated. What's your serial number (should be S, another letter then 7 digits)?

Thanks for the help. Brad
Could I order this heated tube part separately?

Finally a good reason for my wife to leave a little room in the freezer so the kids and I can have some room for ice cream. No other reason ever seemed to work. If she wants ice then she will have to cut down on the "stuffing"
Crazy thing is we have two side-by-sides (one in the garage) and one freezer downstairs, so it is not like she has no storage space.
