I have a Kenmore Coldspot model 106.56536400 refrigerator and the ice maker has stopped working. The light by the ice maker on-off switch is blinking red.

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,

 

Ok, let's take a look at this;

 

Unplug the fridge for 10 mins, then plug it back in, make sure that both of your controls are set on medium

 

This should reset it

Reply to Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman's Post: I unpluged the refrigerator last night and removed the ice maker to ensure that no ice was jamed in the mechanism. This didn't solve the problem.

Ok, I found that this is a common problem with this brand, here is a forum that can help you repair yours

Read the whole forum (Mainly the last 3), it has the complete repair information

Reply to Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman's Post: didn't work. Called sears and they came out and replaced the unit. The board was bad.

Glad you got it fixed, that was going to be the last resort, I know that the boards aren't cheap..

I hope you come see us again... :)
