I have a kenmore s/s refrigerator that won't flow water into icemaker after harvesting ice. I have tested valve and manually flowed water through tube and water flowed and valve checked out good with ohm meter. Water still will not flow for the 5-8 seconds after harvesting ice

Pull out the ice maker but do not unplug it. Remove the head cover (on the left side) and perform the troubleshooting as described in one of our previous posts: Water to ice maker quit working. Post the results.

Default Ejector

Also, what is the normal position of the ejector. Is it with points facing the freezer door or facing towards the back of the freezer. Right now it is facing the freezer door. The part number of my icemaker is 106.2198597. Finally foound the manual and drawing shows the points facing the freezer door.

Looks like at least the ice maker thermostat has gone bad. Possible something else is bad as well. I would recommend to replace the whole ice maker.

- Whirlpool ice maker part number 2198597 is APP Part number: AP3182733

Part number: AP3182733

Default Working?

Don't know what happened but it made a batch of ice, ejected and refilled water and is freezing new ice . Should I still consider replacing?

Thank you for your help!

Do not do anything as long as it works.
