Kenmore - Side by Side condensation in water/ice dispensor area

For the last week I've noticed condensation in the ice and water fill area on the outside of the frig. In looking at the problem there are two screws mounted befind the trim plate for the ice dispenser lever on the door. It appears the condensation is coming from this area.

Does any one kn how to get the ice dispenser trim plate off with out breaking it?

Also, is there a seal around the ice dispenser mounting screws?

Kenmore sidebyside no water or ice replaced valve and icemaker still nothing


The first thing I woulb check is the water filter itself. Water comes into the machine via the water valve, and from the valve it goes to the filter and the to its respective area, dispensor or ice maker. It's a very rare case that both the ice maker and water in the door stop working at the same time other than the filter being bad,

Our GE Profile Arctica will not make ice cubes.


You have 2 problems .
1 . the water valve is not letting enough water in . Pt # WR57X10032 . This is located on the back of the refrig , where the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .
2 . The dispensor flap door , is not closing completely , to seal off the warm outside air , thereby , causing frost on the inside dispensor area , and , on the bottom of the ice dispensor bucket . The usual cause , is the door flap solenoid , pt # WR62X10055 . The plunger , which comes with the solenoid , usually rusts , causing the flap not to close completely .

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator/freezer. I am getting really slow flow from water dispensor (outside freezer side door). It takes 20 seconds to fill up a glass of water.


check to see if your ice cubes are well formed or hollow / if hollow replace your filter 1st and if no good replace your water line / if cubes are large and well formed the replace your water valve to fix your water problem.

Ice and water dispenser


Some companies have installed a small heater that keeps the water lines from freezing. If you notice there are a lot of problems with side-by-sides and not water to the dispenser. Companies try different ways to correct the problem. I know Whirlpool has installed a heater behind the ice maker drop that keeps ice from forming in the chute. This is more than likely what you are experiencing. Freezers also have a self-defrost that comes on every 8 to 12 hours that can cause a warm condition. If it is not causing a problem I wouldn't worry about it.
