I have a Kenmore side by side, with icemaker,
about 10 years old. The icemaker has recently
stopped dumping the ice in the bin, but the
message to send more water is still going through.
As water tries to fill the tray already occupied
by ice, the water runs down into the bin, creating
a solid block of ice when it freezes, and icicles
that hang from the tray into the bin, which my
daughter thinks look really cool. She doesn't
understand why I don't think they are cool.
Anyway, what exactly is the problem, and is this
worth repairing, or should I just replace the
entire assembly, for about $130? I have never
worked on an icemaker before, so I really have no
idea how complex it is inside. I feel pretty sure
that I can take the old one off, and hook the
water supply to a new one.
Any help will be appreciated.
