my kenmore fridge 596.57587791 is not dispensing ice cubes despite water dispensing thru the water dispenser. ice maker has been replaced about 4 yrs ago
I understand that your Kenmore refrigerator is not dispensing any ice. While you are waiting for an expert to respond, I have attached some helpful links below that may provide information to assist you with your question. Have a great day!
Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern after replacing the ice maker. If the ice trays are filling, then you need to check the freezer temperature. The ice will not form or harvest if too warm. If the trays are not filling, then it may be a water valve issue or the tubing to the ice maker is crimped or frozen. The water from the valve to the ice maker and dispenser take two different routes. If the tray is not filling, you can (prime), add water to the tray to see if it will go through the freezing and harvest cycle. If it does, replace the water valve. If the tray is filling and the freezer temperature checks good, then the ice maker fuse thermostat may not be working. It monitors the temperature in the ice mold and starts the harvest cycle. Also check to make sure there are not ice cubes stuck in the ice chute. Remember any change in temperature takes 24 hours to stabilize. Once you have completed these checks, if the problem still exists, please reply for further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
barbara H: thank you. i poured water via a cup into the freezing canal where it should flow and freeze from the source. it froze and the ice maker churned them out into the bucket/recepticle. based upon this single test, my guess is the ice maker is fine and there is a blockage from the water source to the freezing canal. we ARE getting water dispensed thru the water dispenser at the front of the fridge. Do you think that i need to replace the water valve? if so, how hard to do? do i need to remove the back of the fridge?
Thank you for your reply and the test details. Since the ice maker will cycle and harvest, this is most likely the water valve. Before replacing the valve, double check the fill tube to the ice maker to make sure it is not frozen. If it is frozen, you can gently thaw out using a hair dryer, Be careful not to overheat the tube. If the tube is clear, then the water valve does need to be replaced. That will be part # 12195501 and can be ordered at the Sears Parts Direct link below. See key #1132 in the image below. To replace the water valve, first unplug the refrigerator and pull out the refrigerator from the wall. Turn off the water valve and remove the water line from the valve. Remove the screws holding the water valve in place. Disconnect the two water lines that carry water to the dispenser and the ice maker. Note how the wires connect to the valve (take a picture or make a drawing if needed) and remove the wires. Replace the new water valve, reconnecting the wires, the supply lines and the main water line to the valve. Turn water back on to test for leaks.

My Kenmore 25' side by side refrigerator is not making ice.
Hey, When I'm having trouble with my appliances what I find to be very helpful and handy is SearsHomeServices.com I provided the link below. Hope this helps!
It is possible that the filter could be the issue but if you don't believe so here are some other possible reasons your refrigerator can deplete with ice production.
The ice maker itself could be defective. The water valve could be defective. The optic boards could have failed.
A technician may be needed to make these checks. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
