Why did my icemaker stop working?

I have a Kenmore Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, Model 795.7840. It has stopped producing ice. When we first noticed the problem we turned the icemaker off for 24 hours. When we turned it back on the icemaker will make noise but failed to produce any ice in 24 hours. We hae water at the door and that is working just fine. How do I check to see if the line to the icemaker is frozen?

I think I have found the problem. One of the ejectors was bent under another. I have fixed that and the shut off arm moved and so did all the ejectors. I believe it is making ice as I type. thank you for being patient and helping. For know I think I have the problem solved.

You will have a test switch mounted under the icemaker module . See the pictures.

This should be what you have.

The test button is located on the icemaker. If this icemaker is not on your model refrigerator send me the complete model number and I will tel you how to test your icemaker, but this should be the icemaker mounted in the door of your refrigerator.

Thank you for your question. The icemaker can be tested easily by using the test button on the icemaker. Press the button for 3 seconds and the icemaker will cycle and run a self test. It will fill with water in the test. It will also cycle and test the complete icemaker out. If there is a problem with the icemaker the water level lights will light showing what the problem is. See picture.

In the test if the icemaker tries to fill but not, did you hear a hum in the bottom of the door? If you did, that is the water valve for the icemaker. Look at the icemaker, on the right side on the end there is a clear plastic cover; this is where the water comes in at. There is a heater mounted on the fill tube so it should not be frozen.

After the test above, check the bail arm on the icemaker is it bent or broken?

Reply back to me with results of the test and we will go from there or you could have a Sears professional to come out and troubleshoot and repair the problem at this link.
