I was told this model is compatible with a Kenmore Refrigerator with an upper fridge, my model is 106.60939901. Talked to a live chat and they said it was but when when I used the compatibility option, just the model number, it said it was not compatible. So wondering what to do?
Answer Alex, since the manufacturer does not provide the parts information in the original parts breakdown our compatibility tool will not recognize the part as being compatible. According to the model itself, if you have already installed an icemaker in the unit and are only needing an icemaker, part number 4317943 is the correct replacement. Thanks!
How much water is suggested fill for this icemaker. Like measurement of oz or cc
The amount of water to fill the icemaker is 4 to 4 1/2 oz or 130 to 140 cc.
The ice maker I received looks exactly like the one I am replacing except the new one is 230 volts and the old one is 115 volts. Will this be a problem?
Answer Dan, we'll need your model number to verify if the replacement icemaker is correct for your appliance. Please obtain this information and repost for further assistance. Thanks!
My ice make doesn't make ice.
Answer Hello Gordie. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I bought a replacement ice maker but none of the wiring harness's work. The wires come straight out of the side of the freezer, no plug. How do I change this. The refrigerator came with the ice maker already equipped.
Answer Hello David. Remove the cover off the head of the icemaker. Then release the locking tab on the harness and unplug it from the icemaker. Once it is removed, you will plug the harness into the head of the new icemaker unit.
Looking for replacement ice maker. Initial search yielded Add-on kit AP3122341 , but directed me to "ice maker only" AP2984633. It seems that that I only need the later, but don't understand the apparent increased price. Is there some reason I should order the ice maker only? The video appears to demo the exact part I have. Thank you.
Answer Hello Allan! It seems the model provided did not come equipped with an icemaker from the manufacturer. If an icemaker kit has already been installed on your unit and you need the icemaker only, you'll need to use part number 4317943. However, if an icemaker has never been installed on this refrigerator you'll need the entire kit with valve, bucket, etc- part number 8560. Thanks.
