Post Kenmore Ince Maker Help
Model Number: 106.56662500   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 1 - 5 years

Hello,

I'm looking for some help debugging my Kenmore 106.56662500 fridge ice maker. It has stopped producing ice.

Here is what I have done so far:
I have tested the ice maker water value. -working
I have checked the ice maker water tubing for clogging. - no clogs
I tested the thermal fuse on the ice maker. - It was broken but I bypassed it to make sure that it was the only problem. Still no ice.
I know the emitter board is working properly and i'm 99% sure the receiver board is working properly.
I checked the AC motor in the ice maker to make sure 120Vac would still spin it. - It does

The LED output code indicates the ice maker is sensing/working properly, it just won't begin a harvest. The "claws" of the ice maker are currently pointing straight down(the same position as when I reinstalled the icemaker).

I only have two ideas at the moment:
1. The ice maker valve is no receiving the signal to turn on and fill the ice maker.
2. The ice maker is shot. This would be OK with me, I just want to make sure before I buy it.

Does anyone have any input on this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

One last thing. Is there a way to bypass the ice maker and turn the water valve so I can rule out the valve wiring?

Thanks,
PK

PK,

Great report,

I'm pretty sure , you have a bad icemaker assembly, and most likely in the mold heater assembly.

Part number: AP3182733

Part number: AP3182733


Since you have voltage to the I/M control module, you should be able to insert your jumper wire in the L and V contact openings and actuate the fill valve from there.

Good Luck,
