    Thanks for answering. Where on the back of the fridge is this? Is this something a novice do it yourself guy could fix? Any pictures or videos that would show this.?



    Thank you

The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.

    Take the back off the ref. and you will see where the water line is connected. If you also have a water disp. you will need to replace the whole valve which is a duel valve.

I had a similar issue. with my Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator. The Sears store locally helped me locate the part. Ended up getting it off of Amazon though because it was quicker than getting it direct from Sears. Here was the part I got. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DPOZWU/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Why is the water coming out of the dispensor not cold


Is your fridge compartment temperature in the region of 2 ~ 6 C range. Is your fridge food not going bad. Then dispensor water should be cool. Cool water tank is normally hidden inside fridge compartment. Lowest temp is around 2 ~ 6 C range.

If you keep on taking water rapidly then there is no time for the cooling tank to cool. You are just pushing house water through the water dispensor.

Ice Dispenser not dispensing ice


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Remove the dispensor grill , and also the 2 screws at the bottom of the dispensor front . Lift the front up and out , and remove the plug on the front . You should now see the white switch bracket . On the left side , is the ice dispensor motor switch , when usually , one of the spears holding the switch breaks off , not allowing the ice dispensor to work . If this is the case , the part number is 2180226 . Only held on by 2 screws . When/if replaceing , be sure to put the plastic spacers in the correct position next to both switches , and be careful not to break one of the spears , holding the switches .

Doors got to hot


Check the warrenty on fridge . Usually you have a 5 year warrenty on the compressor AND sealed system ( parts and labor ) . However , a service call charge may apply . Also check to see if something got sucked into the compressor cooling fan blade causing the noise , after you cleaned the coils .

From the description about dispensor leaking and ice getting stuck , sounds like the water valve needs to be replaced . Small ice cubes ( from not enough water ) will get caught between the rake and fingers . A leaking water dispensor , usually indicates that the water solenoid is not closing completely when letting off the water dispensor arm . Both solenoids come togather as the water valve ( located where the wall waterline connects to refrig ) .

If you have ice and water in the freezer door it would appear that the water line going to the water dispensor has a leak. First check where the door hindges at the bottom as this is where the line runs from the water container located in the fresh food compartment to the water dispensor in the freezer door.
