Is there a complete icemaker add on kit for the kenmore listed above.... thanks
Answer Hello Erin, the manufacturer doesn't offer a add on kit for this unit as it came with a icemaker directly from the manufacturer. You can purchase a replacement icemaker part number 4317943. Thanks!

Answer Robert, the complete icemaker add on kit used on your Kenmore model 106.63182302 is part number 8560. Thanks!
My ice maker drips slightly when making ice. I hear the solenoid opening/closing normally but as it makes ice, water drips in with the cubes very slowly and continuously. I have to believe the water is dripping past the valve, but I'm not sure as the ice cubes are full size. Would you recommend replacing the valve first and if so what part number? (It was manufactured in 08/99 and have the ice maker water shut off for over a year and bar raised on the maker so it hasn't been running dry).
Answer Hello Greg, I would check the water pressure to the unit first. The reason is that the water valve has no springs inside it to close it. It is closed by water pressure alone. A lack of sufficient water pressure will cause the valve to close slowly and sometimes never close all of the way at all. If you remove the water line from the back of the unit and find good pressure, the next step is to replace the water valve 4318046. If you want to save some money, you could go ahead and order the ice maker kit 1129316 which also includes the water valve. This should take care of it for you.
I've received my kit for the above model refridgerator. There is however, a few small problems. The manufacture date on my kitchenaide is 08-94. It been pre-wired and made ready for an ice maker kit. The kit that came will not work for two reasons. The main plug in the back of my unit is square, where the wire harnes on the ice make you sent is round on one side and square on the other. Both connectors have four pins. Yours has a brwon, green, black, and wihte wire. Mine has 2 grean in one pin, 2 white wires in one pin, 1 black, and 1 brown wire. The connector in mine is square. Additioanlly, when I observe the back of the unit and dropped the cover. I though I would see a couple of extra, single pin connectors for the water valve. There are none. I searched everywhere on that side where the fan is, there are no extra leads to hook anything up. So, I'm sure I'll be having to send this back. Regards, Lee
Answer Hi Lee. All you should need to do is to use the correct wiring harness for your ice maker. You can unhook it from the ice maker itself by releasing the single center clip on the side of the ice maker. This is a universal kit to adapt for your model given. Ice maker kit part # 1129316. Thank You.
