Question about Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

On the top inside of the refrigerator side there is a push button, I don't understand what it's for

I don't understand what you gain by turning the ice button on the inside the the ice maker. The refrigerator, it doesn't change the performance of the ice maker. The ice crusher doesn't crush the ice at all. The crushing blades are turning but no crushed ice comes out at all

Ice maker keeps jumbing up doesnt release ice cubes from tray


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the ice maker in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB, does not release the ice cubes from the dispenser. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and try to dispense ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Water doesn't fill the ice maker trays


Most ice makers need to be at 8 to 13 degrees to make ice. If you had to defrost coil, then it's a defrost issue. Could be timer, bi-metal our heater.

MY GE MONOGRAM ZIS420D FREZZER IS NOT MAING ANY ICE. WHAT SHOULD I DO


check for continuity on the ice maker water fill solenoid valve in the lower rear area of the refrigerator,then remove cover from front of ice maker, and there are 2 gears inside this cover,follow the instructions on the ice maker by this gear and turn it the way it tells you to,this will initiate a manual ice production,you will see the gears turn by themselves after you help turn these gears initially,then you should see water enter from fill tube in the back of the ice maker if the fill tube isnt froze over,if no ice production occurs the ice maker thermostat could be open(bad) or if it makes ice but doesn't push it out the heater below the maker may be open(bad)

Ice maker doesn't dispense ice


The most reasonable things could be that the gas ran out; the buttons and thermostat don't work; power issues; or you might have a leakage on the gas pipe.
Try calling a fridge/air condition technician to verify this.

My model is 596-50699001 and the problem is does't do ice, and change a filter what can I do to fix it ? Thankyou for helpingg me


There three problem that will not make your ice maker to make ice.

If the water’s route is blocked or the solenoid doesn’t work

If the bail wire is lifted—the ice maker won’t make ice.

Your home’s water pressure must be strong enough to serve an ice maker.

For your ice maker to maker ice,
be sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the down position.

If the ice maker doesn’t make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn’t arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn’t kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).

Also,check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller, it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.

Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.

The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator and then travels to the ice maker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it, and at the same time you can inspect any seals or diaphragms to ensure that they are sound. Unplug the refrigerator first.

Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the problem where the ice maker supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to the “self-piercing” type). You can do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.


Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Had the same problem. The water line from the valve to the ice maker was cracked due to heat from the compressor.
