In Topic: Kenmore 596.76573600 ice maker stops producing ice

When it has managed to throw ice in the bin, the cubes seem of normal size. When the replacement arrives, I'll double-check that behavior and take your suggestion on the inlet valve if they seem small. Thanks for the tip.

Ordered. After finding your video on YouTube, I jumpered T & H together, and the motor didn't go. So now I suspect it was an intermittent motor problem that likely allowed ice to jam or accumulate on the ejection fingers.

After putting up with a screwed up icemaker for another four years, I'm finally going to fix this thing.

 

If I pull the thermostat, what's the easiest way to check it? How do I check the fill output? (It's at this point that my dislike for this fridge turns into hatred, since this is going to take a lot of contortions to see.)

Related, but separate, to the question of the F10, is what is the best way to check the actual temperature inside the oven? I have a non-contact thermometer, but where should I measure the temp? (On a pan in the middle of the oven?) Or is a fancy calibrated Samurai master thermometer a requirement here?

I will double-check the resistance reading at the EOC. Oddly, the oven was reliably (sic) showing F10 on Sunday. After unplugging/plugging the sensor to measure it, the oven hasn't thrown this condition. I'm wondering whether the sensor's wire connection is part/all of the problem, as suggested by this discussion on appliances from the same manufacturer.

 

If it's the EOC, I'm surprised that such a thing would fail. Is this common?
