How to Clean a Kenmore Elite Ice Maker


If you are starting to notice ice with a strange smell or color coming from your Kenmore Elite refrigerator, the ice maker tray may need to be cleaned out and the freezer may need some freshening. In a few easy steps, you can make your Kenmore dispense clean ice. Unclean ice is not only unhealthy, but it does not taste appealing in a beverage.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking soda
  • Dish soap
  • Sponge or rag
  • Open your Kenmore's freezer and place an open box of baking soda on a shelf. This keeps the freezer fresh at all times.

  • Remove the ice maker's tray by lifting it to unlock it, and then pull it out.

  • Dispose of all ice within the tray. Pour the ice in the sink and melt it with hot water.

  • Clean the ice maker tray with warm water and dish soap on a sponge or rag. Clean it thoroughly as if it is one of your dishes.

  • Rinse and dry the tray fully, and then place it back in the freezer.

Tips & Warnings

  • Melt the discarded ice into a bucket and water plants with it.
