Kenmore Elite. 2006 my ice maker recently, quit making the actual cubes. Water is coming out and just filling up the ice bucket...solid block of ice. Should I replace the ice maker, or is there a simple adjustment to the ice maker I can attempt to repair? Would love not to spend the $150.00 for repair man to walk thru my door. Thank you look forward to your assistance.
You will want to pull the icemaker out of the freezer compartment and check to see if the fill cup on the icemaker is frozen. If the fill cup is frozen then you will want to clear the ice and replace the water valve. The water valve would be allowing a trickle of water in even though it is not calling for water. To remove the icemaker there are 2 screws at the top center part of the icemaker that is connected to the mold. There is 1 screw at the bottom. You will need to remove the baskets to do this. The lower basket and door can be removed by removing the 1 screw on each side of the rail and then lift the on the door and it will come out.
How do you replace the ice maker?
Answer Hello Dave,
Remove the upper tray in the freezer compartment. Once this is out there are two phillips screws on the side of the lower rails that hold the lower drawer in place. Remove screws and lift out the Drawer. Once this is out you have clear access to get to the screws on the icemaker to remove. The upper screws only have to be unscrewed just a little but the one on the bottom has to be fully removed.
