Water dispenser problems

I realize this is the wrong model number but I looked and I can't find the one I have. I have a Kenmore model 57092 side by side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser. The ice dispenser is working fine. The water will dispense for a while once I take the filter off and then refit it. If I wait a minute or so no water will flow. When I loosen the filter again there is a escape of air like pressure has built up. Any help?

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: Water flow decrease on refrigerator dispenser

You might have calcium deposits in the supply line.You can unscrew the line from the fridge and turn on the water to see if you have good flow. Have a bucket or pan handy. Let it run for a minute. If it checks out ok then the problem might be in the line attached to the fridge. Those usually come off fairly easy. If so take that off and see if its clogged. You can also check the valve where the feed is connected to the main water.

SOURCE: Replacing the Ice dispenser motor on Kenmore elite refrigerator?

I had the same problem with our Whirlpool Gold. Which by the way was just out of warranty. The guy who repaired the problem told us that since there were so many replacement dispenser motors at different supply locations that there must be a problem. I think that the root cause is the arm in the ice holder is hard to move, and it burns the dispenser ( #2252130) motor out. Whirlpool should get to the bottom of this and offer free or reduced repairs. Motor # 2252130

Kenmore ultra fresh side side 59507990

828a4e4f-c0b3-4029-a7f5-35b92db8b7ad.jpgKenmore model numbers look like this example=> 321.1234578 Are you sure that the water in the ice maker is melting and flowing down into the ice bin? What may be happening is the water control valve for the ice maker may be allowing water to continue flowing into the ice maker tray even when off due to the water control valve being defective. If your refrigerator also has a water dispenser and the water is not continuing to leak is because the water control valve has to sides. One side is for the ice maker and the other side is for the water dispenser. I am here if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water tube to ice tray freezing up

Repairmantx is correct. Your dual water control valve is oozing water past the water valve that is used for the ice maker. Locate your model number and search for a dual water control valve if you have a water dispenser. Model numbers for Kenmore refrigerators looks like this example 325.326598. The first three numbers are the company that made your Kenmore refrigerator=> Kenmore - Who Made It for them?

Where is the water filter on a 1998 kenmore fridge

Here is where the confusion begins. When Kenmore says their model number, it is different than OEM numbers or original equipment manufacture's number's. Here is the deal with Sears when it comes to their model numbers. Sears buys all their products from someone else like Whirlpool, Maytag, GE and the list goes on and on. Then Sears calls their model number Kenmore Model Number=> Kenmore Model Number Locator's and the first three numbers are the models maker or who originally made the appliance Click Here for examples=> Kenmore Appliance Model Number Prefix's or Click=> Here once you have the correct Kenmore Model Number once you have that then you can find the parts for your dispenser. Your number will look like this for example only 363.235698 then go to Parts Direct or Repair Clinic and enter the correct Kenmore appliance model number and then search dispenser parts for that model numbers parts number. Hope I made this simple enough so if you need assistance I will be here to help you find that one small part you are searching for, Thanks, for understanding, Sea Breeze Once you find that 363.235698 example you will be well on your way!

Water will not flow. It is a kenmore cold spot

Most likely the dual water control valve is not opening to allow the water to the dispenser if that is your meaning. Now if you mean water for both dispenser and ice maker then that would change everything. See if you can locate the model number that Sears puts on the door frame near floor. The fresh food section door at base and the number will look like this example 312.256489 With that number I can see everything your side by side came with and tell you the parts and locations. You also can have someone test voltage going to the water control valves while someone presses the dispense water switch. And with a voltage meter set to OHM's test the coils on the dual water control valves for resistance and if one has a very different number that can tell you. So we have several things to look for, water supply, dual water control, (if one works and other will not) and model number, Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

Kenmore coldspot water dispenser stopped working. Ice maker works. What could be possibly wrong?

On the rear of your refrigerator there is a dual water control valve. One side for ice maker and one side for water dispenser. I believe your side for the water dispenser has failed and they come as a set. Send the Kenmore model number and I will find you one. The number will look like this, 326.256489 for example only. Found near the bottom of the fresh food section door. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My water dispenser does not work. I unscrewed the hose at the bottom of the door and there is water pressure there. Where should I be looking for the problem?

If pressure there it could mean anything may be possible. I need the Sears Model Number. If the water valve on rear of refrigerator does not open then water will not exit the dispenser. Sometimes water is frozen in the dispenser water container located inside the fresh food. Sears Numbers Look Like this (231.564897) for example
compartment. And sometimes it is the dispenser controls. I will need your Kenmore Model Number to tell you the part you need and to help you better. Thank You, Sea Breeze
