Kenmore Ice Maker Stopped Working?

I have a Kenmore Ice Maker - Model #106-73834302. I removed the ice maker so I could gain access to the freezer drain tube to defrost it because it was restricted and water was freezing on freezer bottom. I was successful in fixing it, but after reinstalling the ice maker, it will not work. It made 2 cubes and then won't make any more. The bar is down and ice maker it connected properly. Do you know what may be the cause?

Here are a few things you can check:

  1. Check the temperature of your freezer. The freezer needs to be set between -18 to -15C Fahrenheit. If it is above -12C Fahrenheit the ice maker won't make ice.
  2. Check the water intake valve to make sure it is working. This valve is the one that supplies water to the ice maker so it can make ice. You could have damaged this when you removed the ice maker.
  3. Check the psi pressure on the valve. it requires at least 20 psi to work correctly.
  4. Take the ice maker out and check how you assembled it again. Check to make sure you haven't damaged one of the components of the ice maker. If one is damaged you will need to replaced the entire unit.
