Question about Kenmore 55692 / 55694 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice/water supply inadequate

Have a 2 wk old Kenmore side by side with ice water in the door. When installed the kid that delivered it said the slow water was due to the RO system I have. Now it turns out that the icemaker only fills between 4 and 5 of the ice cube molds in an 8 mold tray. So I am always running out of ice. Called the dealer he was no help. Said to call service. I have already checked the flow rate at the line going into the back of the refrigerator. I get 44 oz per minute from that line. When I try to draw water from the front of the refrigerator I only get 12 oz per minute. Would seem that something is wrong with the frige, but Sears is trying to say it might be the RO or the fact that I am on a well. Bull....the old refrigerator worked fine. I have a whole house 5 micron filter, a water softener and the RO also has a 5 micron filter. The tap at the sink has a good water flow. I also have a two horsepower pump from the well house to my house. Worst of all according to Sears if they don't find anything wrong with the refrigerator, they expect to charge me for the service call.

    You may have a point. This was a "floor model". Where the water attaches to the solenoid (?) on the back bottom of teh frige is oriented on the top of the solenoid. Something could have dropped into in while sitting on the floor.

When installed some debris may have gotten into your water valve and partially clogged it which is located where the water line hooks to your frig. Stargazer

Whirlpool ed25rf can I remove water filter?


You CAN just bypass the filtration system, BUT, you're going to have mineral deposits buildup in various locations over time. If that's not a problem for you, then TAKE OFF OSMOSIS SYSTEM, and just extend the hose that goes into the filtration system---- to the hose that exits the system, connect the two, and that's it, all set. Make sure all your hose connections are secure, so you don't get leaks, or flood your floor. You could put in an activated charcoal sytem, which will take out chlorine, other chemical contaminants and give much more water per minute than a RO system, if that's your reason for wanting to remove it. You could easily use your existing RO unit, merely remove the RO membrane filter, and bypass it, and that would use all the other filters it has, without slowing the water flow excessively. Also, it will, NOT take out any minerals, or heavy metals or viruses, like the RO membrane will do, but the water flavor is more how most people like.

Ice maker issues - what to do next?


I have not found Kenmore to do the best with the icemakers; however, you want to make sure that the lever on the side was replaced properly. They have a slot that they need to go into. The other thing that is important is to see if the motor is running on the ice maker. It could be at fault, but if that is the case those units usually are better off replaced as a whole, which runs around $200. You will probably get them cheaper through an appliance dealor rather than going through Sears and there probably is one in your yellow page section of your phone book...hope this helps.

Ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?


It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front

Bad water & ice cube taste


Hello redwood City
Welcome

You said,
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.

First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE


When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper tubing."



Whirlpool remedy
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.

Let me know what works,
Thank You ,
HUUUM!!

Fridge leak by water filter Fridgidaire


Hello, sounds like the o-ring for the housing that the filter goes into was damaged. You can get a replacement o-ring from your locale appliance parts wholesaler/dealer - OR if you have a really good locale "Hardware" store - remove the o-ring from the male part of the housing that stays in your fridge (pinch it between you fingers around the diameter and you should be able to get it out). They should be able to match it for you - If I recall it is a standard size. If you cannot find one right away you may be able to get it to stop leaking temporarily by getting some Sillicone O-Ring GREASE and applying it to the o-ring. This may stop the leak but I would still replace the oring when you can. Good Luck Dr. Know

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice


Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
