Why would ice from the front door have an off taste but the ice in tray in the bottom freezer tastes fine?


I don't see from the literature that this model dispense ICE from the "front door." The dispenser on the left door seems only to dispense water. In your configuration the water comes through a completely closed system until it reaches your glass and should therefore not have an order or taste different from that of your cubes in the bottom Freezer.

The ice dispenser keeps going after I remove a glass.


does the ice auger still move(motor) or does the ice just fall out for a few moments after you release the drinking glass trigger ?

reason I ask is: there is a mechanical clock spring motor inside that controls a door to shut off the freezer from the outside(kitchen) , and ive seen rust/time ruin many of them (sticks open) there not too expensive and not too hard to change , usually just two Phillips head screws

this is not well for a few reasons , 1 it allows ice to continue to fall out of freezer and 2 it never shuts the freezer off from the kitchen so appliance runs more to freeze the freezer , also it makes for some drips on floor as well from melting ice

I changed my filter, PUR 4396841 and now it is vibrating when I stop dispensing water. Any suggestions? Do I have it installed correctly?


The vibration is a tiny bit of "water hammer." Previous to your filter change, the water flow was restricted, and therefore incapable of causing water hammer. Now that you've changed the filter, the flow is large enough to cause a little water hammer when you shut off the flow.
How to fix: shut off the flow SLOWLY. Water hammer is caused when the flow of water is shut down quickly. This is just as true with large flows (as in fire engine pump panels), as it is in itsy bitsy
filtered water lines & filter housings.

Kenmore refrigerator, has water dispensor on front, when you put the glass there to dispense it will not stop flowing, you have to bang the door shut


Sounds like the water activator switch is sticking. It may help to clean the area where the switch is including the hinge. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Since shutting the door stops it the above is most probable but the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in could be sticking.

Not getting cool water from dispenser in door


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

No water at door


I have a 3 year old GE GSL25 refrigerator with the water/ice dispenser on the freezer door. Even when setting the freezer at 2 and turning the fridge's lower drawer to the warmer "cheese" setting, the water dispenser line would freeze every few weeks. If you have this problem, first verify that the water filter (back of the fridge) is not clogged and that water flows from the water line at the bottom left corner of the freezer door (disconnect and press water delivery dispenser-see owners manual).
I used the hair dryer recommendation to unfreeze the line by heating the flat area of the freezer door directly behind the water dispenser area (~10 min did it). The trick to keep it from freezing up again involved buying a cheap foam sleeping bag mattress (~1/3 inch or 1 cm thick) made of a polyurethane foam (pretty dense). I cut it to match the flat area of the freezer door behind the water dispenser and taped it to the door with packing tape. For the past 3 weeks (even with freezer at #4 setting), my water is flowing freely. Personally, I think this solves a product defect with insufficient insulation in the freezer door near the dispenser water line.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!
