Where is the reset button on Kenmore Elite ice maker, model 106.51773510?

The Kenmore Elite ice maker model 106.51773510 does not have a physical reset button. Instead, you can initiate a reset of the ice maker by following a series of steps that involve either unplugging the refrigerator or using the control panel. Here's how to reset the ice maker on the Kenmore Elite model 106.51773510: 1. Power-Cycle Reset: To reset the ice maker through a power cycle, follow these steps: * Locate the power cord connected to the wall outlet. * Gently unplug the refrigerator from the power source. * Wait for about 5-10 minutes to ensure any residual power is discharged. * Plug the refrigerator back into the power outlet. * Listen for sounds indicating the appliance is powering on and initializing. 2. Control Panel Reset: If your refrigerator model features a control panel, you can also try resetting the ice maker through the control panel settings: * Look for the control panel on the front of the refrigerator, which may be above the water and ice dispenser. * Press and hold the "Lock" and "Light" buttons simultaneously for about 3 seconds. The location and labels of these buttons may vary depending on the specific model. * After holding the buttons, you might hear a chime or see the display change, indicating a reset. Allow Time for Reset: After performing the reset, it might take some time for the ice maker to begin producing ice again. Allow a few hours for the ice maker to cycle and start producing ice cubes. Consult the Manual: For detailed and model-specific instructions, refer to the user manual that came with your Kenmore Elite refrigerator. The manual will provide guidance on performing a proper reset and troubleshooting common ice maker issues. Remember that the location and functionality of buttons might differ based on the model, so consulting the user manual is crucial for accurate information. If your ice maker continues to experience issues or doesn't start producing ice after following these steps, consider reaching out to Kenmore customer support or seeking assistance from a professional appliance technician.
