Whats your model number please? Whats the supply line made of plastic or copper tubing? Thanks
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Plastic tubing, i can not find the model number, i will go look again.

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
ok
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

kenmore coldspot model #50522100.

 

Alot of times the ice is hollow, other times ice collects on the ice maker and prevents it from rotating.

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
I want you to pull the frige out and tell me if there is a kink in the plastic line you will have to look close ok. Then we will go from there.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no kinks

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

Ok Thanks i need for you to pop the cover on the front of the i/m it might have one screw holding it on or it might not when you take the cover off tell me if you see this we will test the i/m and water fountain selenoids from here. Its a easy test.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

nothing happened.

 

This morning the ice maker is going through its cycle but no ice is being made, i dont think that any water is getting to the spout for the ice maker. The water is still coming out of the water dispenser.

 

 

 

 

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

When was the last time you changed your water filter on this?

 

 

 

 

 

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i havent, where is that located to change?

 

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

It looks like this it should be located in the frige in on the top. When you jumpered this out was there any noise.

 

Part 779238

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no, no noise that i could hear. The wires went very deep into the holes, not sure if i did it right. Is there another jump that i can do to see if i get a response?
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
What kind of wire did you use. Did you find the filter?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Just used a 18g wire, stripped the ends and put them in the holes, found the filter, turned off the water took out the filter. Filter says replace by 9/07 so that may be the response. Just kind of worries me that the jump did not do anything so the valve may not be working.
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

Because you should have heard the selenoids kick in. Try the jump again and move the wires around a bit .

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

If this didnt work i would change the filter then but a new set of water valve selenoids .

I got a new filter, and tried the jump again. The new filter made the water come out of the water dispeser much faster. I heard something kick in when I tried the jump again.
