Why is my ice maker not working on my Kenmore refrigerator?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 106.55602400 that the ice maker is not working. The sensor light on the left side of the freezer is not on, even when I press the flap. Does this sound like a fuse issue, and if so, I located part #628379 which is what I think I would need. Is this part easy to install?

I have a question. I have a kenmore side by side. I decided to replace the water filter on the bottom of the fridge. After I did the ice maker stopped making Ice and the water in the door is still working but the water (after filling up a cup) is warm not cold. The rubber fill tube is not frozen.. infact if I bend it enough I can get water to leak a bit between the ceiling of the fridge and the tube. Now if I heat of the ice maker with a blow dryer the arms or teet (whatever they are called) start moving up ... I decided to put water in it myself to see what happens... the water is for sure frozen but the ice maker is not shuving the ice out.........if I use a hair dryer it will move the ice...
The optic sensor is not lit or anything... if I unplug the fridge and plug it back in the red light flashes for a bit and then goes off...........

what the heck is going on???? Thanks

The part number you mentioned is a metal clip not the fuse. When you open the freezer door be sure to push the light switch in manually so the ice bin sensor light will come on. If you are pressing in on the light switch & flipper door & the ice sensor light is still off, this will require taking some voltage checks to find the root cause of the problem. Be sure the fill tube is not frozen; this would indicate a bad water valve.
