Kenmoore Side by Side Refrigerator

Kenmoore Side by Side Refrigerator

Hi all,

I have a Kenmoore 596.52673200 side by side model and am plagued with the dreaded ice maker issue.

I tested the ice maker, had to defrost the fill tube due to freezing up. After doing this, it started making ice again. Then it was over filling the ice maker, we would end up with the big blob of ice.

In looking at the parts manual, there is a Primary Dual water valve and a secondary water valve, I would assume that the Primary Dual water valve is my issue? Part number 12544002.

Anything I may have missed in my troubleshooting?

Thanks,

D

I believe that would be an Amana built unit, but all manufacturers use similar valves. I have replaced a number of them and try to keep a spare on hand.

Yeah, I double checked it and swapped it out, same part number on both, defrosted the fill tube, no ice made after two days, rechecked the ice maker test points, volts good continuity is good, can't start a cycle by shorting the the test points T and H. So ordered a ice maker assembly, see if that fixes it. The only other thing would be the secondary valve, but i get water thru the water disp in the door.......................
