Question and Answers

Q:

Ice is not coming out!!

A:

If I understand your details correctly, the ice maker module is not producing any ice and does not appear to be cycling. This problem could be caused by a failed ice maker module (part 626662). Here are some troubleshooting and diagnostic tips:

  1. Make sure that the wire shut-off arm for the ice maker is in the down position. If it is even slightly raised, the ice maker won't cycle. Try lifting it all of the way up and then pulling it all of the way down. See if the ice maker begins to cycle.
  2. Check for ice that could be stuck in the stripper blades of the ice maker. If ice cubes got stuck in that area, the ejector may have jammed up. Defrost that area and pull out the stuck cubes if necessary.
  3. If the ice mold is empty, I recommend that you manually fill it with water and see if the ice maker will cycle and eject the frozen cubes. If the ice maker cycles but does not refill, you apparently have a water supply problem. Unplug the refrigerator and check the water fill tube above and behind the ice maker to see if it is frozen. You may need to remove the ice maker from the side wall of the freezer to check that issue. The ice maker is attached to the wall with screws. If the tube is not frozen, then you can remove the front cover of the ice maker as shown in the first image below. With the refrigerator still unplugged , you can check the resistance of the water valve circuit using a volt/ohm meter. If the resistance of that circuit is okay (around 300 ohms), then you can use an insulated jumper wire to energize that water valve for the ice maker as described in the first image. Keep the refrigerator unplugged while you position that jumper wire in the L and V contacts. Briefly plug the refrigerator in to test that valve and then unplug the refrigerator since you have internal components exposed. If the water flows into the ice maker properly during that test, then the internal contact for the water fill valve that is inside the ice maker module is apparently bad since it did not fill during the harvest cycle. This would indicate that you need to replace that ice maker assembly. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for the ice maker assembly: Ice Maker . If the water valve buzzes but no water flows and the water line is clear, then you will need to replace that water valve assembly (part 4389177).
  4. If the ice maker never cycles after you manually fill it with water (or it has frozen ice in the mold), then you can use the information in the second image to manually cycle the ice maker using an insulated jumper wire. NOTE: Using that insulated jumper wire for live testing can be dangerous . Use extreme caution when pulling that jumper wire out of the ice maker once it starts to cycle. Use the same method as described for the water valve test above to safely position that jumper wire in the T and H contacts. Once you plug the refrigerator in and the ice maker starts to cycle, carefully pull that jumper wire out. If the ice maker never cycles using that jumper wire, then you will probably need to replace that ice maker assembly. If the ice maker cycles properly but does not continue to cycle and fill with water, then you will also need to replace that ice maker assembly since the module is bad.

These tips may help you diagnose and repair this ice maker failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator when accessing internal components and replace parts .

This can sometimes be a difficult failure to diagnose. 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 .
