Q:

fridge icemaker nt getting water

A:

I understand that your ice maker is not getting any water. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful.

The model number you sent does not run in our system. I modified the model to 106.9614380 to get an image of the refrigerator. This model pulled up a Kenmore top mount refrigerator made in the 1980's. If the information I am sending doesn't fit your refrigerator, get the model number off the tag inside the refrigerator and reply on this thread. I will be glad to help.

Look closely at the fill tube that comes from the back of the freezer compartment to the icemaker. Many times the problem is this tube freezes shut and won't let water through. If the fill tube is frozen, try removing the fill tube (you will have to remove the icemaker first) and cleaning the fill tube with Comet or some cleanser with bleach in it. Sometimes grease will build up inside the fill tube and cause freezing.

If cleaning the fill tube doesn't help, replace the water valve mounted in the rear of the cabinet in the compressor compartment.

If the fill tube is not frozen, fill the ice mold of the icemaker to the top of the cube molds. Turn the icemaker off for 3-4 hours. Open the freezer door and hold the plunger of the door switch in and the icemaker should go through a harvest cycle. The harvest cycle will take 7-10 minutes.

At the end of the harvest cycle you should hear a hum as the icemaker energizes the water valve solenoid. If you don't hear the hum the water valve might be bad.

A:

If the temperature inside the freezer is maintaining 10 degrees or lower and the icemaker did not dump the ice, the thermostat, motor, or the mold heater inside the icemaker has probably failed. The parts for the icemaker are: motor, part number WR29X5113 is no longer available, thermostat, part number WR29X5168, cost $56.99, mold heater, part number WR29X5132, is no longer available. A complete icemaker with water valve and ice bin is part number 8339. The cost is $155.74. You can order the icemaker at [www.partsdirect.com?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch].

Q:

Why won't the icemaker work?

A:

Manually cycle the ice maker. To cycle this icemaker pull off the front cover and you will see a large and small gear. Turn the small gear counterclockwise until the icemaker starts (usually about 1/4 turn). If the icemaker won't start replace it. If it does start now but won't fill some voltage checks will need to be made. A technician may be needed to make these checks. If it cycles and fills, the thermostat # WR29X5168 in the icemaker will need to be replaced. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.
