How to fill ice tray in a Kenmore ice maker?

To make the unit fill if you want to test it:

  • Remove the front cover of the ice maker, that is the square white cover. It just pops off. 
  • Once that is off, you will see holes around the motor gear marked V, L, T, H. 
  • Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped and put the jumper in L & V. 
  • The fill valve should energize and fill as long as the jumper is in, so do not leave it in too long or it will overflow. 
  • If it does fill, you can put the jumper in T & H and the gear should rotate. 
  • If it does not rotate, the ice maker motor is shot and you should change it out as it will not make ice.
