Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water The water suddenly stopped dispensing from my Kenmore refrigerator, it now just buzzes when you push the button. The filter is new, but the water company just put new lines in, and our water service was suspended for 4 hours. The problem started about two days later.

    Thanks for your assistance, last night I loosened and tightened the filter housing several times. On the third try the water pressure blew the blockage clear. Thanks for your help, and for the record I changed the filter and then they shut us down with no warning.

Hey we got this one.the buzz is the water valve solinoid energizing when you push the paddle for chilled water,so power is passing thru switches in your refer and getting to the water valve.[good]then we need the water to do its thing,and even though you said you changed the filter[i would'nt have yet],because there was work going on for the water lines.there may have been tons of minerals broken loose.the water valve also has screens to catch minerals and stop them from entering water valve.some water valves are not cleanable.if yours not im sorry replce the valve.if it is you will see the way as you inspect..................but heres a very important matter.before you replace valve,filter or anything that has been blocked by a mineral blast,flush your lines in a bucket.other wise you just recontaimanate with whats still in the lines.i know it took a lot of words to say a little.and it didnt come out just as i was thinking it but i hope that helps.God bless ,tom

Inside filter water dispenser suddenly stopped working. New filter removed and no working with or without filter . Water line is fine. Ice maker works.


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

My water dispenser is running and will not stop.


Hi, There are 2 options that might be ha[[ening. Wither the water inlet valve has stuck open or the switch in the dispensor has gone bad.
Turn the water off to the inlet valve. Push the water dispenser button and see if you hear the inlet valve buzzing. Release the button and see if the valve stop buzzing. If the valve stops buzzing, the switch is ok. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you later.

Water dispenser


Usually when this problem occurs, i just keep pushing the button and it will after a minute come through. This time, i had to remove the water filter and empty the water out, put the filter back in and pushed the button til it dripped, then a trickle and then it was back to normal.
