Kenmore icemaker - no water.

Help please. My Kenmore coldspot icemaker also is not getting water but the door dispenser is. The freezing tray is dry.

I replaced the infrared eye and its sensor because the sensor indicator was not coming on. That didn't fix the problem. The indicator flashes if I close the flap and turn the freezer light off. I also replaced the the control valve. While the water line to the freezing tray was disconnected, I could blow air through it and hear it going through so probably not frozen. I also replaced the water filter.

Thanks,
Rich

Welcome to the forums.

Is the red light on when the door is open and the bin is empty ?

The following link is a thread that details troubleshooting the ice maker.

red light blinks twice when door is open. comes on solid when flapper is pushed. I have placed some water in the tray to see if it will freeze and eject. Thanks Pete!
