No water being dispense into ice maker. It's doing it usual dumping & everything . The cold water dispenser in the door is working.


Probably a bad inlet valve on the lower back where the house water line hooks to the refrigerator. Its a 2 part inlet valve. Half feeds water to the dispenser and half feeds water to the icemaker. You can't change half--need a complete valve assembly. Not hard to change. Disconnect house line---unplug 2 wiring plugs (4 wires total) and disconnect 2 plastic water lines. Reverse to install---don't get wiring mixed up or reversed.

Icemaker will not make, cold water works fine, have changed inside filter nd outside filter I added before I knew there was one inside


Refrigerators with both ice and water dispensers have a dual port electric water inlet valve. This inlet valve is the plastic part usually on the back of the refrigerator where the house water supply connects to. This dual valve has 2 electric coils that open to let water in depending on if you want water to a glass or if the icemaker needs to fill with water. Your problem seems to be the half that fills the icemaker may be bad. The valve comes as 1 complete part for both water and ice.

Ice maker not making ice, but water dispenser working, just changed filter


If you changed the filter than water may not have made it to the icemaker yet. If you have givin it 24hrs than check these.

There are only 3 things that will prevent an icemaker from not making ice.

1) Temperature in freezer. Most icemakers require that the temp in the freezer is at a minium of 6 degrees. If the thermostat in the icemaker is not reading this temp or below it will not let the icemaker call for water to make ice.

2) Icemaker. Is the arm on the icemaker in the correct position. Most models the arm should be down to operate and up to be off. Faulty icemaker. The internal components of the icemaker may have went out.

3) Water inlet valve. If the silinoid for the icemaker on the inlet valve is stuck it will not allow water to the icemaker. Over time inlet valves wear out.

Troubleshooting- Check the temp in freezer. If not 6 degrees or below you have another problem with your freezer. If at 6 degrees or below and you have ice and water through door unplug fridge, switch the two hoses from the inlet valve (NOT Possible on all inlets so check to make sure you can remove the hoses by pushing in on the cylinder that hose feeds into and pulling hose out) Switch the hoses than press the water through door feature. If you get water inlet valve is good. If you dont have ice and water though door than have your inlet valve tested. If inlet is good and temp is good replace icemaker. If you have any questions or need further assistance please respond. Thank you

My refrigerator water dispenser is not working. I


In the back of the refrigerator there is a water inlet valve. It will have three hoses one coming in, two going out. A 1/4 line for the icemaker and a 5/16" for the water dispenser. If your icemaker is working and you dont have water at the door the valve to the water dispenser is faulty, you need to replace the water inlet valve. If neither icemaker or water dispenser is working chek your water supply line

Icemaker not working


The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

DOES THE THIS FRIDGE MODEL #106.74912401 REQUIRE TO REPLACE WATER FILTER FOR FRONT DOOR WATER DISPENSE?? ITS A KENMORE ELITE


HI. When a filter has reached its filtering limit, it must be replaced. Once the filter has reached its filtering limits, it will not allow for proper water flow. This will affect the operating status of the dispenser. With that being said, there are other issues that will affect the dispensers abilities as well. These issues are a faulty water inlet valve assembly, and frozen inlet lines. If you are having issues with the dispenser, make sure you inspect these areas as well. Your filter should have an installation date on the label. check to see that it is not over a year old. if so, it should be replaced.

The filter is located behind the front lower grille work. The grille should have a cut out space for it to slide into.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Ice machine not making ice


Hi, everak11,
Three possible solutions for you.
1: No water coming in from inlet valve. Check voltage on inlet if you have voltage and no water then replace valve.
2:Icemaker not cycleing. Lift the arm on the icemaker to shut it off and leave it for about an hour. Come back in and turn the icemake back on by lowering the arm. If the icemaker does not begin a new cycle and the arm start rising then the problem is most likely an icemaker. Replace Icemaker
3:Refrigerator not cold enough. If the freezer is not getting cold enough the icemaker will not cycle. Check the temperature in the freezer and make sure it is getting down to 0 degrees. If not then you may have another problem with your refrigerator. I hope this helps you, Let me know if you have any other questions or symptoms. Mike
