Thank you Mr. Henry, here is more Info that might be helpful for diagnostic: Refrigerator is cooling at 39F to 40F (cannot check freezer thermo..blanks out) Fan is running not stop and air is flowing to both compartments. The freezer is still making ice and is cold. Ice Cream is very soft (which is what alerted me to the problem) Then I started to realize I wasn't hearing that sound when the compressor kicks on. I unplugged unit, cleaned under fridge where coils are opened back and cleaned there as well. Double checked seals around doors. Removed all food except ice cream. When I plugged unit back in I heard compressor kick on. Haven't heard again since. (been approx 24 hours since problem noticed) Back in 2010 I replaced the overload switch but at that time the unit was not cooling at all. So based on what I was able to figure out from all other posts it seemed logical that my unit was defrosting (especially since it continues to make ice and cools just not cold enough). BUT being I am not a appliance repair person, this may not be the case :-( Please advise.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the soft ice cream and fan running all the time. Now, this means the unit is not stuck in defrost. When in the defrost cycle, nothing will run. Based on the information listed, you have done a nice job already but now check to see if, the compressor is running continuously like the fan motor. If it is and there is just a little cooling taking place, it will lead to a problem in the sealed system. A technician will be required to make this type of check and repair. If you would like to locate the timer knob, there will be a small hole under the control housing and the knob will be located in this hole. 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.

Q:

Why won't the ice maker fill with water in my Kenmore refrigerator model 106.71299100?

A:

According to your symptoms, your failure is likely in the water fill valve or the ice maker module. The fill valve is not a pump. It is a solenoid water valve that is opened by a coil when energized to fill the ice maker mold with water that comes in through the fill line at tap water pressure. Here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • Make sure that the fill tube coming through the back wall of the freezer to fill the ice maker is not frozen. This is not likely the case since you see not water in the tube past the solenoid fill valve.
  • Check the water supply line to the refrigerator for a kink.
  • Shut off the water supply to the refrigerator. Disconnect the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Place the end of the water line in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply valve for the refrigerator to check the water pressure and water flow supplied to the refrigerator. A lack of water pressure could be causing your problems. If the pressure and flow are okay, reconnect the water line.
  • The image below shows the technical information for the modular ice maker on this refrigerator. You can unplug the refrigerator and remove the rapid ice assembly on the front of the ice maker module to access the test points shown below. Using a volt/ohm meter, you can check the resistance through the water valve circuit. If the water valve is bad, it will need to be replaced. If you have a wiring failure, you can replace the wiring between the valve and the ice maker module.
  • If the resistance through the water valve circuit is okay, you can try energizing the valve by jumping the L and V contacts with an insulated jumper wire. NOTE: You should only conduct this test if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely complete it. Improper use of a jumper wire can result in electrical shock. If the water valve will not open to fill the ice maker when energized then the water valve will need to be replaced. If the water valve does open and fill properly then you will need to replace the ice maker module.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Use your full model number (106.71299100) to access the parts list diagram for your refrigerator.
