Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water or ice from older kenmore side by side

I have a 10 or so year old Kenmore .Model # 106.9552810 . Was working fine untill a couple days ago. The water started dripping from the front of the fridge water outlet the other night and soaked the kitchen floor. Put in a new in line water filter ,left the light on for 24 hours . still leaking . If I push the lever in .the water comes out very steady. but when I let off the lever it still comes out slowly. My parts list that came with the fridge doesn`t list a water valve. Not sure what to do next. HELP PLEASE!!

You must pull fridge out the water valve is in the bottom back. Sounds like the valve is stuck open. You can Google your model# to find appliance parts to order new valve.

Every time you replace a water filter you want to purge about 3-4 gallons. Or maybe the filter was bad.

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!

OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:

Is your ice tray filling with water? If not, then I would suspect the water inlet valve (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10657032601/0582/0165000/K0607002/00012?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=10657032601 - Item 10)

If it does fill with water, but does not eject the ice cubes to start a new cycle, I would suspect the ice maker motor(Item 37). BUT if it is the motor, that part costs $91.22 and you can replace the entire ice maker (Item 100) for $157.95
