SOURCE: Kenmore refrig not making ice and top shelf area in refrig not cold

if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.

First Try to press the Door Alarm button for more than three seconds. This might reset the control.
If you don't have any results then you have a damage on the electronic Control Board which unfortunatly you need to replace and in a part that worth more $200.

Your fridge has a dual solenoid water valve - one side controls the water flow to the dispenser, the other to the ice maker. It's possible that one side burned out while the other is still good.

Here's a photo of what it looks like:


Here's a link to the replacement part:

Before replacing the part, make sure the solenoid is in fact, bad. Get a voltmeter, and touch the probes to the electrical contacts on the solenoid, like so:
If the meter barely moves, the solenoid is bad.

If both solenoids test out OK, the other possibility is that the water supply line is kinked or clogged. Also, if your water dispenser has a filter (also on the back of the fridge), it might be clogged. My money's on the solenoid, though.

Good luck, and if this helps, please my answer!
Also, thanks to Zenzoidman for the pics.

The filtershould be inside the refurigator side of the unit. But a dirty filter would only slow down yor water flow to unit. Do you get dirty water from the water dispenser?

Kenmore mod. 106 water does not get to ice maker and when pushing despenor no rotation of ice out door

Hello Jim,
Sorry it has taken me a while toget back to ya i just got.
So on your refrigerator it very likely is the switch forthe cradlethat ya push to dispense ice and water through the door.
Unfortunitly modelnumber 106 asyou have listed is only the source number of whom your Kenmore was made by. Typically the full model# that does start with 106 willbe on a label on the ceiling or side wall of the refrig. section inside of it, reply with complete model number please and i will be able to help ya disassamble the door dispenser as well as provide you with part numbers and such
Thanks for using FixYa.Com

We have a kenmore side by side fridge # 106-53644300. The ice maker quite working. Could this be due to needing to replace water filter?

Probably not due to the filter. Do you get a strong, steady stream of water from the dispenser? If not you need to look at the saddle valve, which is where the refrigerator gets water from the house's plumbing. Try screwing the saddle valve in as tight as you can then opening it up all the way. If that dosen't improve water flow you may need to call a plumber.

If you have a good strong stream of water to the fridge something may be wrong with the icemaker itself. It could also be the water valve on the fridge. Your best bet would be to call a professional.

Bad water taste coming out of Refrig

Hello collado36.. I'll give you a few ideas of things to try.. First there a coffee scent in the refridgerator or freezer compartment when you open the door/s? If so, try emptying the fridge and wash everything with white vinegar and dry all surfaces with a soft cloth ( dish towel is OK).. air drying is OK but you don't want the food you removed to clean it to go bad.. Do you have any food in the fridge that may have been exposed to that coffee that may be 'out-gassing' that coffee smell?

The water comes into your fridge via an electrically operated inlet valve and is dispensed into the mold tray of your ice maker as well as the drinking water spicket. ( I am not sure if your model fridge has a reservoir to chill the water prior to dispensing but it probably does...but that reservoir should not be exposed to the inner refridgerator compartment nor should it pick up any scents or tastes from there either. )
In trying to diagnose exactly where the foul water is generated.. can you detach the incoming water feed line from the fridge and drain that into a large jug? Then check that jug for the same smell? If it only happens within the fridge then the white vinegar wash should help.. .if it also happens in the jug then your incoming water may be the culpret.
Another way to clean your water supply system to the firdge would be to detach the water supply line.. buy another length of flex water line with couplings.. and fill that section with white vinegar that can be forced thru the water system and clean it from the inside out.. if you do use this approach, make sure you flush teh system clean of any leftover white vinegar .. Hope these tips help you resolve your problem.. please get back to me if after you've tried these, they don't work.. Good luck..

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?
