Kenmore icemaker making too much ice

My 19 year old Kenmore model 363.9502715 will not stop making ice, even when the arm is up. It overflows and pushes the ice out the door. Every time I open the door ice falls out.

The icemaker won't make ice , the fridge is about 19 years old.


Put some water in the ice maker. If it makes a batch replace the water valve. If ice is already in there then replace the ice maker. Service manual and more HERE

You may can take the plastic end cover off and find the mechanical switch which is supposed to be pushed when you raise the arm and cut it off. Being that old a slight adjustment (bending) may fix your problem.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF


On the ice makers on refridgerators unless the ice in the bucket is high enough to raise the arm on the icemaker it will not shut off. Most people lift the arm up when they see the bucket full. I have the side by side Whirlpool model and on mine if I don't raise the arm the ice will fall out the bucket before it will raise the arm high enough.

Icemaker makes tons of ice and it spills all over the floor


The icemaker should have a thin metal arm that turns it off when the arm is raised, and on when the arm is lowered. This is so when the tub of ice gets full, the cubes push the arm up, and the icemaker is turned off to keep from making excess ice.

When I had the overflowing ice, I checked my icemaker and found that the arm had fallen off (and thus the icemaker won't know when to stop making ice). I found the arm and stuck it back on, and all was well. It may be a bit tricky, and it might take some ingenuity to keep the arm from falling back off.

I hope this helps!

Kenmore Icemaker


check inside the ice maker are the forks pointing up or down if they are down them the module on front of ice maker is broken it needs to be repl, but you said is 8 years ol d so i would repl the whole ice maker since the mold might be peeling off due to age they only last like 4 years or so

Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice


hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com
