ICE MAKER STOPPED MAKING ICE
The repair went great. My first step in the repair was to watch the video provided Parts Select on replacing the ice maker. The troubleshooting tips provided was great. I choose to replace the entire assembly and it was really easy. I had to disconnect the electric connector and screw the new ice maker into the mount, and reconnect electric. No issues. Part was a perfect match started making ice right away.

Part Select is my choice for parts because of the accurate "how to" videos, extensive catalog of parts, and timely delivery.

Kenmore icemaker stopped working.
. Fairly simple repair, required Phillips head screwdriver and 1/4" hex head socket driver. Took me about 20 min. to make repair. Saved me about $150-200 if I would have had appliance repairman fix it. Love this site. Has saved me hundreds $ over the years in appliance repair. Have recommended this site to friends and coworkers!

Fill tube was a surprise
Found several videos on YouTube that showed how easy this is to remove and replace. They were all very accurate except they forgot to mention that the water fill tube is in the way when you try to slide the mechanism out of the refrigerator. Don't be afraid to bend the tube for both removal and replacement.

Ice maker had been overfilling and making icicles, then it quit makimg ice completely.
This site parts were almost exact duplicates for the original. No modifications were necessary. I watched the videos...and thank you parts select for having those! I am somewhat a bull in a china shop when it comes to working on items, as I have a heavy construction background, so sometimes I tend to get frustrated with plastic type parts and ending up breaking them. The videos showed exactly how to do it, so that prevented any frustration. After watching the videos, I replaced the ice maker, then replaced the inlet water valve. It was easy. While you have the cardboard back off the rear to the fridge, pull the bottom grill off the front and use a brush and vacuum cleaner or air compressor, if you happen to have one, to clean the coils. It was easy. I saved about $250 doing this myself. THANK YOU ! Regards, Jim

Icemaker stopped making ice after leaking for a while
Replacement icemaker has a higher funnel into which the water flows from the top-mounted water tube. This seems to help eliminate the splashing/leaking problem. It is a bit more difficult to install the icemaker because of this taller funnel, but gently bending the rubber water tube while sliding the assembly in on the tracks worked fine. Be careful with the water tube or you can dislodge it. Otherwise the new icemaker went in quickly and was making ice by the end of the day. Simple install.

I am at my whits end, my ice maker don't make ice, first attempt to fix was when it quit dispensing crushed ice, I bought a micro something it went in the outside door part, that didn't do anything,second it quit dropping the ice into the ice bin, I let this go for a couple months through the holidays now it quit making ice all together.I read up on this page and I ordered a ice maker motor module,w10190935 installed it by your video and its been 72 hours and no ice, I poured a little water in the maker and it ran out quickly,what else I can't afford anymore high priced parts, meaning this all added up. I hope you can tell me whats wrong.

Hi Sybil, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Emitter and Receiver Boards,PartSelect Number PS10064583.To test the board you need to open the freezer door and look at the status LED on the right hand side. Make sure the ice maker control is turned “ON”. The status LED should blink twice, pause, and then repeat,blink blink…. pause, blink blink… pause.Next with the freezer door open, hold down the flapper door on the left side to unblock the optics beam. With the optics unblocked, the LED should light up and stay lit with no blinking. If the status LED continues to blink twice , then you have defective optic boards and they will need to be replaced.If there is no LED light on, then the ice maker could be in “harvest” mode. Hold down the freezer light switch, the status LED should flash every second while in harvest mode. If the LED light still does not flash, then the optic control boards will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

How long after replacing water inlet valve does it take to start making ice cubes?
PartSelect logo
Hi Doug, Thank you for your inquiry. Once a water inlet valve or an ice maker is replaced, it takes approximately 24 hours for the ice maker to start making ice. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

No ice is being produced. It appears the optic boards are working properly, according to the tests described in other posts. No water is entering the ice maker. There is a clicking sound in the ice maker. I manually added water to the dispenser. It froze but did not disburses into the ice bin. If the dispenser is not working, does the water stop flowing to the dispenser water tray?
For model number KSRG25FTSS00

Hi Steve, Thank you for the question. If the boards are good and the ice maker is not dumping the ice into the ice bin, I suggest replacing the ice maker its self. You can also test the water valve assembly with a Multi Meter, but if filling the ice maker tray with water did not help it sounds like an ice maker issue. Hope this helps!

My icemaker has frozen water in the cube tray but will not dump the ice. I defrosted and dried out the cube tray and started it all over. The ice cube scooper seemed to work but then it was frozen in the ice again the next morning. I am not sure if it is the thermostat or a whole new assembly needed. Thank you for your assistance.
For model number KSCS23FTSS02

Hello Amy, Thank you for your inquiry.We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: ice mold, cycling thermostat, and ice maker control assembly. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!

The ice maker has stopped working. The ice maker model is 626664, so not the 626663 that i am seeing on the web site. The ice maker looks the same but i have 1 wiring harness coming out of my ice maker with 4 pins that is rewired to go to 2 connectors one with 3 pin with all 3 pins used and a 2 pin with just on pin used and those plug into the 2 connectors in the refrigerator. Could i use the 636663 ice maker on your site and use my wiring harness that breaks the single 4 pin into the 2 connectors described above? Thanks much!!

Hi Hugh, Thank you for your question. We can only guarantee parts that show up underneath your model number directly. I have listed the correct ice maker for your model number in a link down below for you. That would be the one that you need to replace your previous ice maker. Good luck with your repair.

Our ice maker is leaking and making icicles from the ice maker. What ice it is making is hollow. Sears told us $750 to fix it. Do you think just replacing the unit will solve the problem?

Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your question. I would suggest checking your water inlet valve. Just to double check that part is working alright. I am not sure why a repair would cost that much. Usually when you are experiencing problems like that it is either your water inlet valve or your ice maker itself. If your water inlet valve is good, then you may have to replace your ice maker. Good luck with your repair.

I found the problem for water/icicles in my freezer section. Problem is isolated to the white fill cup that water enters into the ice maker. The fill cup was filled with frozen water. I filled the ice maker with water (manually) and turned the ice maker back on. It dispensed ice but when the water cycle came on water spilled into the freezer because the white fill cup was filled with frozen water. I removed the ice tray waiting for the fill cup to thaw to see if something may be plugged. How do i troubleshoot a clog that may be somewhere in the water distribution from fill cup to ice tray? Thank you
For model number KSCS25INBL01
PartSelect logo
Hi Carl, Thank you for your question. Well there is only the fill cup and then your ice tray. So you would remove your fill cup and run it underneath hot water in your sink to melt the ice that is clogging your fill cup. If it is something in the fill tube that comes up from your water valve, you could try to use a hair dryer to melt any ice that is clogging your fill tube. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Keep geting black things in ice, was told there is a flapper in the back, i look but didn't see a flapper and did not pull unit off yet. They said the black things coming off the flapper. What should i do?
For model number KSRS25PNWH00
PartSelect logo
Hello Fred, thank you for writing. First check the ice maker and the ice bucket to make sure that the black particles aren't coming from there. If those two parts are clean then check the ice door kit that is up inside the dispenser section. That is part number W10823377. This part opens and closes the little chute that the ice comes through. That is what is meant by flapper. I hope this helps!

Our icemaker was not making ice. I ordered a new one from partselect. While waiting for it to arrive, i noticed that the freezer portion is too cold (-15 to 20 degrees f), and the refrigerator was at 55 degrees. I found that it was iced up at the bottom of the evaporator not allowing air to flow through the bottom of the freezer, and up into the refrigerator. (the slide gate is open at the top of the refrigerator allowing cold air to flow in). I defrosted the unit. It still is a little warm in the refrigerator ( about 43 degrees versus set point of 37) and the freezer is still -15 to 20 degrees. I opened up the back panel of the freezer, and check the connections for the defrost thermostat, fan and defrost heater. All seems normal. I do not believe the freezer is going through a defrost cycle, but am not sure if just replacing the defrost thermostat will fix the issue of it being continually cold in the freezer. (it may fix the issue of frost causing low air flow into the refrigerator section causing high temperature in the refrigerator, but will it keep the freezer from getting too cold? The compressor seems like it is always running when i listen to it. Maybe a bad temperature sensor for the freezer compartment telling the compressor to stay on continually? Maybe a circuit board issue? What do you think? I hesitate to install the icemaker since there may be other issues. Time to get rid of this ten year old unit?? thanks.I am a chemical engineer, but may be over my head!
For model number 106.5552240

Hi Rory, Thank you for the question,If you have a Multi Meter I suggest testing the Thermistor. The resistance should read at 77 degrees which is 2.7K ohms of resistance. You can also test the Bi-Metal Defrost Thermostat. Remove it from the refrigerator so you can control the temperature of the sensor. You can let the sensor warm up to room temperature. With the sensor warmed up to room temperature the sensor should read approximately 6.2K Ohms at 68°F. With the thermistor submerged is a glass full of ice water, the sensor should be very close to 32°F which should read approximately 16.3K Ohms. If the values that you are getting are far off from these readings, then the sensor is bad and should be replaced.You can also check for power to the control board and make sure it has the correct amount of volts. Hope this helps!
