Kenmore elite icemaker problem
« on: April 28, 2009, 08:22:23 AM »

Does anyone have any info on this? I have a Kenmore (coldspot) elite side by side refrig. The ice maker somehow sprayed or dumped water inside the freezer a couple of times but kept working. Now about a week later it does not work at all. If you fill the tray manually it freezes and dumps but never refills....Any ideas? Any literature etc...?

That is just a bad solenoid on the water valve. Replace it.
