Make sure you have the water hooked up properly to the water supply. Then make sure the water is turned on and the the refrigerator is getting water. You can do this by turning the water on to the line and running it into a glass or bowl. If you are getting water to the refrigerator make sure the icemaker it turned on and make sure the door will try to dispence water and ice when called for by pushing the button for water or ice. If you push the button and you do not get a response then check the power connection in freezer hinge, then check the plugs on the water inlet valve in the back of the refrigerator. The refrigerator will have a double valve and the odds of haveing a new double valve with both sides not working on a new refrigerator would have to be one in a million, so I am sure you should find the problem if you check the items I listed. If not then feel free to call me Monday thru Friday from 9 - 5. Anderson Appliance Repair (865)945-3808. I will be happy to give you free advise, but if you need a part remember where the free advise came from. I hope this will FixYa.

I saw your response to another Kenmore frig and I have a similar problem I want to ask you about. I have a Side-by-side Kenmore frig(model 106.9555722) that we've had for 16 years!! Other than r


I have seen this one other time in all my years of appliance repair and changing out the "water inlet valve" corrected the problem. I don't have an answer to why it did, but it did. Here is the valve for your unit.
After you change the valve be sure to purge the water line for a good 5 - 10 mins to get all the nasty water out. Keep me posted!

If it's new (under one year old) then it's Whirlpool's problem.

Water dispenser in the door is dispensing water very very slow.


check and see if the ice is fully formed or look hollow / if hollow then run you a new water line to frig / if cubes are full then replace water valve.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

Jenn air side by side refrigerator ice maker not working


On mine the water inlet feed tube would freeze solid. Removing the ice tray and using a hair dryer to completely thaw the tube would get it working for another month or so. My frig had a solid rubber inlet tube. I noticed at the appliance store that newer models had an inlet tube that was split on top. I got one of these from a local appliance parts store, and it fixed the problem. The tube replacement it easy. Get to the back of the frig. Turn off the water supply. Carefully pry the white plastic piece out ( located on the upper right side when facing the back of the frig. ) of the frig. When you have the new one in hand it will be clear what you are going to do. Pull out the old remove the water line. Attach the line to the new tube and insert it. Turn on water, check for leaks, and you should be ok. This repair is only effective if you have an inlet tube that freezes up. There can be many other malfunctions that stop ice makers from working. This was my problem. Replaced the tube 3 years ago and ice maker has worked fine since the replacement.

Water in the frig and possible overheating


clean the coils and check to see if the condensor fan is working. Call your local dealer and ask them to order you new o-rings for the filter mount to fix the leak from the filter.

OUT,REMOVE BACK PANEL,TAKE TWO LEADS OFF THE VALVE NOW GO SEE IF YOU HAVE WATER STILL COMING OUT OF THE DOOR,IF YOU DO THESE ARE THE LEADS YOU NEED,FIND A OLD POWER CORD YOU NEED TWO CLAMP FITINGS OR GATOR CLIPS,SLIP THEM ON THE TWO TERMINALS ON THE WATER VALVE ,THEN PLUG THE CORD INTO A OUTLET AND COUNT TO 5 AND UNPLUG,NOW GO TO THE ICEMAKER AND PUT YOUR HAND IN THE WELL AND SEE IF YOU FEEL WATER IF NOT YOUR VALVE IS BAD,IF THERE IS WATER IN THE WELL YOUR ICEMAKER IS BAD,GET THE MODEL NUMBER FROM INSIDE THE FRIG.
