kenmore ice maker

31 posts in this topic

I guess I'm the newest member of the "icemaker ain't working" club.  It seemed to have just quit working.  Thought the ejector teeth were frozen, so I used a hair dryer to thaw out the ice holder.  Worked well but no movement.  Ejector teeth were stuck in the 7:00 position.  Shut off arm was stuck in about half-way up position.  Could move shut-off arm into full "Off" position, but would not move into "On" position.  The small red line on the dial is now stuck in about the 11:00 position.  The ejector teeh are in the 9:00 position.  Arm is down.  Nothing happening.  I jumped V to L, got water no problem.  Jump T to H, got nothing.  Is she going to make it?

Sounds like the module has gone bad.....suggest replacing the module or the whole ice maker.

our water in the door quit dispensing right in the middle of filling a pitcher.  The ice in the door and the icemaker is working fine.  Any suggestions?  We have Whirlpool.

The icemaker mold should fill up with water in 8-10 seconds when l to v is jumpered .

If not the water valve at the waterpipe may have calcium partially clogging the needle  in the saddle valve.

 Be awaire that  water valves may fail to shut off properly if the water pressure  inside the valve goes too low.

 I once pulled out a piece of plastic from a valve that caused a lot of flood damage!!!
