With the icemaker it could be a cycle thermostat or a water valve or a motor inside of the icemaker. It will be hard to tell you which one. You can try manually advanceing it by moving the fingers clockwise a little and see if it takes off and fill up with water?

It is recommended you read all this kind of situations
Kenmore refrigerator seemingly runs all the time. Defrost cycle must be working, because I find no frost on the evaporator. On a setting of 3, the recommended setting, the refrigerator is 40 degrees, the freezer 0 degrees. It seems that by turning the thermostat down, to, say, 2, or even 1, the compressor should shut off. Yet it doesn't. It will only shut off if I turn the knob to "off." So, the thermostat would appear to be defective, right?
Yes you are right the thermostat is not responding to switch off the compressor at the desired temperature setting. It stay "always on" position. Replace the thermostat to rectify this problem....................sodeepPS: low refrigerant gas co ...

GE Monogram ZIS36 Side by Side refrigerator built-in about 15 years old. Defrost problem.
Freezing compartment has ice running down the sides. Both refrigerator and freezer work fine. I have cleared the drain tube of debris and cleaned condenser. Problem persists.
Do I replace:
1. Defrost Control
2. Drain Trough Heater
3. Defrost Heater
4. Defrost Thermostat
It seems as if the Defrost Heater is working fine, otherwise the icicles would not be running down sides of freezer and e
I have a Maytag Side-by-side refrigerator with ICE-MAKER and WATER dispenser. A while ago, Ice-Maker stopped working. Now I see a red-blinking light for the ice-maker status. Everything else works fine including cold water dispenser, and nothing "notable" like any smoke or fumes, or any big sound etc. happened. How do I: 1) Reset the ice-maker, so the red blinking light will go away? 2) How can I fix the issue? Thanks in advance. -PM

Re: Kenmore Refrigerator
I was reading a question/solution about the water filtration not working. 3 areas of concern were listed: 1. old/clogged filter 2. Inlet valve problem/corrosion 3. Frozen water lines/ice blockage.
I replaced the filter. The refrigerator is a year old, so I am assuming it isn't the inlet valve. So, if the water lines has ice blockage, how do I fix it?
The water line referred to would be the fill hose inside the freezer.Remove the icemaker and look inside the water fill tube. If you see ice,you will need to unplug the refrigerator,then use a hair dryer to thaw the incoming water tube.On ...
25.2 cu ft side by side whirlpool refrigerator. ice maker is not working. was working fine 2,3 days ago. filled up bin.
When an ice maker stops making ice usually the problem is not the ice maker. More often than not there is ice build up on the evaporator coils due to an automatic defrosting problem. Other times the fill tube freezes up. Item #2: ...

Kenmore refrigerator Ice maker overfills - intermittently. (Side-by-side Model KM23CFSXS,WOW). 3 Yrs. old; Problem began after I replaced water filter, but I don't see how that could be the problem. 2 or 3 'batches' of ice O.K. then ice trays will attempt to fill twice causing an overflow. Once, I heard the ice falling into collection bin and immediately went to take a look. "Pusher' fingers were in 2nd rotation (assuming it takes a complete 1st rotation to empty ice tray and hear the ice fall)
Hi\015\012\015\012\015\012Please make sure the icemaker is level, some of the plastic liner will move and allows the icemaker to tilt over and leak. Also check the fill valve, it might be staying on and over filling the icemaker. Th ...

I have a side by side refrigerator that is 5 years old, and the ice maker does not work. We purchased a 5 year warrenty from Best Buy and requested warrenty repair. It took 3 weeks to get the repair part and the ice maker only worked for 3 weeks with the new part. The repair company said the warrenty had expired and the problem was now a valve and took 3 weeks to install the new valve at our expense. The ice maker did not work with the new valve, no water is getting to the ice tray. The service
The ice makers are rather finiky. limit switches for almost every movement. Sounds excessive, but replacing the ice maker module will save you a lot of worries. The signal to fill with water comes from the icemaker when it is in the correct position ...
My red light is flashing in my Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator freezer. The ice was working, but red light flashes and no water comes out. I dumped the ice out, and noticed the bottom of the cube bin has ice in the "mechanisms" that cause the ice to dispense. We do have a filter that registers 0% left in it...but I don't believe that's the problem. What is causing the water to not flow from the dispenser...when the ice maker is still dispensing ice. The unit is 2 years old.
If the filter is clogged (0% left), you may not get the water you are looking for. ...

We have a ZISB420DMB side by side refrigerator. All of the lights on the refrigerator side will not work. The freezer side lights are ok.
I checked the master light switch and its on.
There are 2 things that come to mind and hope you can help..
1. According to the schematics there is a inline fuse for the refrigerator side lights only but I cant find the fuse.
2. There is a heat sensor that if the door is open too long the lights will turn off. Perhaps that sensor is out. Again I co

Kenmore side by side refrigerator model number 106.56546400 water dispenser is not working. When you push the dispense handle you can hear the solenoid working but no water comes out. I can’t seem to find a clog in the line anywhere. I took the solenoid apart and determined that water is coming through the filter to the solenoid. I can see water and air bubbles in the coil of hose in the refrigerator, but nothing coming through the water spout. Ice maker works fine.
Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator water dispenser is not working. The ice maker is hardly making any ice but there are a few cubes that have come out. I defrosted the refrigerator last night as I thought the line was frozen but still not working. The temp in the freezer and refrig sides are adequate. The water seems to be the problem. I checked the filter, checked to make sure the line wasn't kinked at bottom left or that the "dispense lock" was pressed. Water still won't come out. Any advice is

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig (no ice maker) Freezer works fine. The refrigerator side is not cooling. I have cleaned out the vent between the freezer and the refrigerator section by defrosting the entire unit. I have a feeling its not working properly, based on the fact that the venting box is still leaking water. How can I fix the not cooling issue and the leaking water???
Check to make sure the evap fan is running.IF so, then let unit defrost, then turn back on, check for air comming thru top of refrig vent, if air moving ok, then let run for a few days and see if refrig warms again, if so then check for frost b ...

(Frigidair refrigerator R134a system) 3 months after a new compressor was installed it stopped cooling, it leaked. I found and repaired the leak. Then bought some automotive R134a it had dye,conditioner, and stop leak in it. I don't think it was made to be put in a refrigerator as at 175psi. high side and 10 psi. on the low side gave me about 10 inches of frost across the top of the evaperator. at lower pressure 150-90psi I get 0-5in of vacuum on the low side. and about 1 to 3 in. of frost on th

Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
I have a Kenmore 25351699100 side-by-side refrigerator. Both the freezer side and frig side quit working and started to warm up. Ice began to melt in the ice maker. Then several hours later it started working again. Then a day later the problem returned. Then it started working again. It continues this same cycle.
Several possibilities.One is that the relay is not making reliable contact. In which case it should just be replaced.Another is the defrost heater is turned on by opening the door.If the door switch was bad, and essenti ...

We just moved into a home with a 3 year old GE side by side refrigerator (model# GSS 25LGMB BB, serial# VA 412740). It works but it's not as cold in the fridge section as it should be and we have it on the coldest setting. The freezer part works but it's doing the same thing. It takes about a day or so for the ice trays to become ice. We haven't even used the ice maker because it's not cold enough. All of our frozen juice is cold but not frozen. It was turned off for about 3 months before we mov
