Thank you for your question. I know it can be disappointing when the icemaker stops working. Replacing the water valve # W10408180 on this model is not very difficult. First, disconnect the power and shut off the water supply valve. Now follow the water line and it will connect to the valve. Remove the back panel cover and you will see the valve. Disconnect the water line and remove the screws holding the valve in place. Now, pay close attention to how the water lines and wires are connected and connect the new valve the same way. I�m attaching a picture with instructions of how the fittings on this valve works. If the icemaker still won�t work, the most likely problem will be with the icemaker itself but it could also be a problem with the optic boards. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Scott I have 106.56243400 refrig. In October I replaced the icemaker and optical board. The icemake began to work again. Last week, with ice maker stopping working again and I replaced the solinoid valve but that did not fix the problem. Both times the ice maker stopped working, the water continued to worked. I'm not sure what else I can replace. Any tips would be greatly appericated.

Eric, The icemaker in this model can stop working for a few reasons. Some are listed below: *The icemaker itself can fail *The water valve may not open *The optic boards can fail *The fill tube can freeze up *Freezer temperature not cold enough (should be 0 � 5 degrees) The blinking led light can be flashing a code that will indicate the problem. If it flashes 2 times pauses and continues this while the door is open, it will be normal and if it stays on continuous, when the flapper door on the left side is held in, it indicates the boards are ok. I�m attaching a chart for the led indicator. When checking this icemaker, tape the little flapper door shut and disconnect power to the refrigerator. To check this icemaker, slide it out, so the front cover can be removed, to access some test terminals. There is a clip located on the back right corner of the icemaker that will need to be removed, to slide the icemaker out. There will be a screw at the bottom of the clip holding it. I�m sending a picture with instructions to remove this clip. With the clip removed, slide the icemaker out and remove the front cover. You will now see the test terminals, which are marked (see picture). Now remove the 3 screws holding the receiver board on the right side pull the board out and disconnect the harness from the board. Place a jumper between the black and black/white wires (see picture). Now use a second jumper and place it between the L � V terminals on the module. Reconnect the power and with both jumpers in place, water should now flow to the icemaker (be prepared to catch water from the fill tube). If water does flow, the icemaker will need to be replaced. If no water flows but you can hear a humming noise, the water valve will need to be replaced. If nothing at all happens, some voltage checks will need to be made. I hope this will help you. If you would like to have a technician check this, you can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out.

A:

Your refrigerator appears to have the handles that are shown in the image below. You can remove the loose handle by carefully pushing up on that handle to remove it from the clips on the door. Once you remove the handle, you can tighten the screws on the clips. This should help you tighten the loose handle. If you need more help, let us know.

Q:

Why is the fresh food section warm and freezer temperature good?

A:

The main cause for this type of issue is an air duct frozen and obstructed by ice. There can be many reasons for this to happen. The problem is warm, moisture-laden air getting into your refrigerator and not being turned to frost in the evaporator coil where it can be defrosted away by the defrost heater.

Most common warm air leaks are found around the door gaskets. The defrost drain can also freeze over, not allowing the defrost water to be drained away.

There may be a problem in the defrost circuit and the unit is not going into defrost.

The best way to thaw ice from the ducts is to unplug the refrigerator and leave the doors open for at least 24 hours. While this is an inconvenience, it will allow ice to thaw from the air ducts and allow the unit to operate properly.

(There should be a fan running in the freezer section that blows the cold air into the fresh food section.)
