Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Refrigerator Ice maker

A:

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

The fill times are important if the icemaker is harvesting ice that is bridged when it is dumped into the ice bin.  You could use the water dispenser to check the flow rate which should be around 8 ounces for 8 seconds of fill.  If this is normal then check the fill of the icemaker using the supplied chart and place the icemaker on the smallest fill.  Does the water valve shut off or is the valve allowing water to continue to seep in?

Another thing to check is the ice itself.  If the door is open too long the ice might start to melt and then when the door is closed refreeze together.  Not using enough ice will cause a similar problem when the defrost operates and  the ice get wet and refreezes after the defrost cycle is finished.

If you decide to have a Technician check your appliance, call this number to get the service call arranged 1-888-266-6317.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.
