Question and Answers

Q:

ice maker not making iced new filter just installed

A:

Since the water dispenser is working properly, the lack of water going to the ice maker not caused by a problem with the water filter. You could have a problem with a frozen fill tube, the ice maker water fill valve or the ice maker module itself. A wiring failure between the ice maker module and the water valve assembly could also cause this problem.

I recommend that you check that water fill tube above the ice maker to see if it is frozen. You may need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the ice maker module to check this fill tube. I provided a procedure in the image below that shows how to remove that component. Here is a video that shows that procedure: Ice Maker Removal . (You don't have to completely disassemble the ice maker module as shown in that video to access and check the fill tube.)

Once you have access to that water fill tube above the ice maker, squeeze the black rubber part to see if you can detect a freeze plug. If you do then defrosting that fill tube should fix your problem.

If the fill tube is okay, you can check the resistance through the fill circuit using a volt/ohm meter. With the ice maker pulled out (with the refrigerator still unplugged ) you can pull the cover off of the control end of the ice maker assembly. This will reveal the test points shown in the top of the second image. With the wire harness for the ice maker plugged into that module, check the resistance through the V and N test points using a volt/ohm meter. You should measure around 300 ohms through that circuit. If you do then the wiring in the circuit and the valve are likely okay. If you want to test that circuit further, then you would need to place an insulated jumper wire in the harness for the receiver control board on the right side of the refrigerator and the place another insulated jumper wire in the ice maker test points L and V to manually energize that valve circuit to see if the water comes up through the water tube. Here is a comprehensive technical answer for a previous question that describes how to conduct that test:

How do I get my icemaker to work? There is no ice/water in the system anywhere.

If you energize that valve circuit through the L and V contacts and get no water through the fill tube then the water valve assembly will need to be replaced. The part number for that valve assembly is 4389177. I provided the instruction sheet that comes with that part in the 3rd and 4th images below. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator before accessing internal components.

If the water does flow from the fill tube when you energize that valve through the L and V test points then you will need to replace that ice maker assembly (part 2198597). The video provided above shows how to completely remove that ice maker assembly so that it can be replaced. Make sure that you unplug the refrigerator before beginning that repair.

These tips should help you resolve this ice maker fill issue.

If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

This ice maker system can be difficult to diagnose and repair. 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 .

NOTE: Cycling the ice maker manually by advancing the gears on this type of module will often damage the ice maker. This is a different type of ice maker than the one described in that link for a previous answer provided by Alina F. in the above response. That link for a comprehensive technical answer for the ice maker that I provided in this response provides a method for cycling the ice maker by jumping the T and H contacts with that control board wire harness also jumped.
