you have a defrost problem, either the defrost heater or defrost thermostat are bad or both, check continuity with ohm meter.

Sounds like the coating on the ice maker is coming off, look where the cubes set and see if it is discolored, if it is then time for a new ice maker. Good Luck!

I suspect that you've got a leaky ice maker. Do you have clumps of ice in the bin, too? Many times, replacing the ice maker will solve the problem.

In addition to the the other answers, also check to make sure your ice maker is not leaking around the the equipment box. Except for water on the floor, I had the same problem as you did, ice in the bottom of the freezer. It turned out to be the ice maker leaking, which is a common problem with that particular ice maker. I bought one on line and replaced it myself. If that is part of your problem, I can give you instructions on replacing it. It's not too hard.

I had the same problem. The ice maker started leaking water into the ice storage bin. I had to replace the ice maker. I did it myself and it’s easy. I ordered one over the internet. Here’s the link to the Sears parts: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/Kenmore-elite-Refrigerator-Parts/61005508/0046/464/Model-59676603600/0583/0161000.html
You’ll see three adjusting screws on the side of new ice. They preset at the factory so don’t touch them!
Ice maker replacement Instructions for bottom freezers: First, use your refrigerator to store the frozen food because it will only take you about 30 minutes to replace the ice maker. Unplug the power. Lift the ice maker wire switch to shut it off. One step no one tells you about but makes the job much easier is to remove the freezer sliding door. Remove the wire mesh storage tray in the freezer. Then with the drawer door pulled out, lift it up slightly with the handle, which releases it, and slide it out of the rails. Now you got it made! Carefully pull the front plastic cover off the ice maker. When you pull on it, you will see it separate from the rest of the machine. It simply snaps off and on the maker. You may need it for you new machine. Mine did not come with one. Unplug the wiring harness from the top back of the freezer. There are two hex head screws that hold the ice make to the side of the freezer. Unscrew them and the ice maker is free to remove. If your new maker did not come with the wire switch, simple pull the old one out of each side the switch mechnisiam and slide it into the new one. Now reverse the above steps to install your new maker. It may take an hour or so for it to start operating, just be patient. You may want to just sleep on it?

Had the same problem with my Kenmore Elite Series Refrigerator. Upon searching for the answer the closest and simplest answer was a faulty fan specific to the ice maker compartment. This fan is suppose to regulate the humidity in the ice maker, but sometimes the humidity becomes too high and that causes the fan to freeze. (A tell tell sign is when your Ice Maker shoot freezes up, or water begins to drip from the Ice Maker and puddles up in the catch tray or on the floor in front of the Refrigerator). When the fan becomes frozen, that causes the 1F error display to come on. There was also a second reason that was consistent with a faulty circuit board, but that did not match as closely as the faulty fan.
Most answers directed you to replace the fan...but I gave this a try first, and by the way my option has solved my problem fan for over two years now. Simply .. open the refrigerator door and turn the Ice Maker off. Then take the ice tray out and dump any remaining ice and clean and dry off the tray and the ice shoot that the ice drops through into your glass. Leave the Ice Maker off for 3-5 days, giving the fan enough time to thaw and dry out. You will have to live with the inconvenience of no Ice Maker for that amount of time .. but you can do that rather than paying an enormous fee to have it serviced in home (unless you're still under warranty). After 3-5 days has expired simple turn the Ice Maker back on. If by any chance this doesn't work..try it a second time but leave the Ice Maker off 5-7 days. Honestly, this should solve the problem. Mine is still working flawlessly. God Bless

Hello Heather.
Have you had anything wrong with fridge that caused the smell.
Try charcoal in both fridge and freezer.
Hope it will help.
Fish smell is hard to get read off

The Er IF error code indicates that the main control board detects that the ice compartment cooling fan is not working. This will cause a lack of cooling in the ice compartment and will normally result in no ice production. This is something that a service technician will usually need to correct.

defrost timer, u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?
Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.
Take ur meter prong and connect to prong 1 & 4, it should read resistance or ohms ( closed) now remove prongs and place on prong 1 & 2, this should now read infinity or open (no ohms) now take a small screwdriver place it in the tiny hole or slot under the timer. Turn it clockwise slowly till u hear 1 click. Now ur 1& 2 should read closed ( showing ohms or resistance) now place meter prongs on 1 & 4 and you it should now show open ( or no resistance - no ohms) this is how u know ur timer is good, Remember when testing for ohms ADJUST meter to use a high ohms rating in the thousands as the resistance is very high in OHMS. And adjusting to low ohms rating may give a false reading or not show the proper resistance..

usually has wheels and ifu push down on the front they should come out, or try lifting up and they come out then u can roll it

Fridge not starting?

MAY HAVE A BAD START RELAY OR CAPACITOR ON THE COMPRESSOR , CAN BUY A INEXSPENSIVE 3 IN 1 HARDSTART KIT AND BY PASS THEM , NOT THAT HARD TO DO, COMES WITH INSTRUCTIONS> BY THE WAY DO U HEAR ANY CLICKING SOUNDS FROM COMPRESSOR? BUT U MAY ALSO WANT TO CHECK UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT IF IT GOES BAD U MAY GET A NON START ALSO HAVE IT CHECKED FOR PROPER VOLTAGE AND OHMS RESISTANCE WHEN IN THE ON POSITION
A BAD DEFROST TIMER CAN SHUT DOWN COMPRESSOR HAVE IT CHECKED WITH MULTI METER.

AT TIMES YOU MAY HEAR THE COMPRESSOR CLICK OFF AND ON OVER AND OVER. Signs of a bad start relay or capacitor. Check with an OHMS meter for continuity (ohms) and voltage, capacitor can be checked for Microfares.
To check ur compressor with multi meter:
Disconnect and remove the relay and capacitor from compressor, somes located next to compressor in a casing.

You wills see 3 prongs coming out of compressor. 1 goes to ur srtart winding, 1 goes to ur run winding and the center goes to ur ground.

Place ur meter connector or prong on the start prong and the other on the ground (center prong) take note of the reading in OHMS for example 5 ohms.
Next place meter prong on run prong and the center ground prong agin. Take note of the reading in OHMS. Example 4 ohms

Next place meter prong on the start prong and the other on the run prong, now take note of the reading example 9 ohms. Now match the total of this ohms test with the total of ur two separate test. 9 ohms, if they match ur ok give or take 5 percent plus or minus. One more test to make to test of there is a short in compressor attach meter prong to ground prong and rub the other end of meter prong to metal ( scrape the metal clean of paint and test on metal surface not painted surface. If it shows continuity or ohms , u have a short in ur compressor. It should show infinity

Is a defrost required ! or has Temp control gone faulty . Needs checking by Technician

Kenmore Elite... | Answered on Apr 03, 2015


In the refrigeration side, there is a small round filter that you twist off by hand. Replace with the same filter and screw on by hand and do not make it too tight or it can be hard to remove later on.

Several said unplug to reset "brain" I'd try that first, then the defrost solution. Or possibly a Hair dryer to melt enough of the ice around the stopped fan to allow it to work again.
