Under the sink use the screw down clamp that you get with the fridge. Just tap in to your cold water line that is the best way.

Water dispenser will not shut off


If you have a constant drip coming from the dispenser more than likely the water valve is partially stuck open. This is caused from a few things but the most likely cause is calcium and sedament build up in the lines. Water valves are easy to change. You just pull the fridge out from the wall, turn the water off and take the lower panal off. The valve is going to be either on the left or right side, wherever the water line from the wall goes. As far as the part goes I would order it from www.apdepot.com or www.repairclinic.com and I would also recommend putting an inline filter inbetween the wall and the valve, even if your machine has a built in filter. Reason being is the inline filter will be the first thing the water goes through, catching the sediment, etc in place of the valve.Now if the water is a consistant amount, like someone is pudhing the lever for water, then the micro switch that actuates the valve itself mayne stuck or gone bad. For this you will have to remove the trim to the dispenser and some other parts to locate the part.

My model is 596-50699001 and the problem is does't do ice, and change a filter what can I do to fix it ? Thankyou for helpingg me


There three problem that will not make your ice maker to make ice.

If the water’s route is blocked or the solenoid doesn’t work

If the bail wire is lifted—the ice maker won’t make ice.

Your home’s water pressure must be strong enough to serve an ice maker.

For your ice maker to maker ice,
be sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the down position.

If the ice maker doesn’t make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn’t arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn’t kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).

Also,check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller, it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.

Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.

The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator and then travels to the ice maker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it, and at the same time you can inspect any seals or diaphragms to ensure that they are sound. Unplug the refrigerator first.

Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the problem where the ice maker supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to the “self-piercing” type). You can do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.


Thanks for contacting Fixya.

HOW DO I ATTATCH WATER FOR THE ICE MAKER


You will need to purchase an icemaker install kit. It will come with a water line and a saddle valve. The saddle valve will be self piercing and you will need to basically mount it to your cold water pipe in your basement, crawl space or under the sink. Once the valve is mounted you need to attach the water line (plastic is easier to work with than copper and hook it to the valve. Then run it to your inlet valve on the back of the ref. You may need to drill a hole in the floor behind the ref to run the line if you are tapping into a water line in the basement.To tap the valve you just turn it clockwise and it will pierce the line. Then you should be all set to go be sure to check for leaks.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Have just been experiecingetal or oily tast fro water and ice dispensers. I can see oily substance on top of water. Changed filter and no difference.


Good day,
Unusual problem. It's possible that the dual water valve in the bottom back of the machine is at fault, but only a guess. Changing it may be your first option.
I would also check where your water supply line is tapped into the house supply.
If it's a horizontal line, and the tap in is done on the bottom of the line. I would reinstall the tap in to the 3 or 9 o'clock position or the top if that's possible.
As well, if no luck, I would consider calling your water dept. and have them check for possible water contamination.

The ice maker stopped working what could be wrong


Here are a few steps you can take to get your icemaker working (be sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the down position):

1) If the icemaker doesn't make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn't arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn't kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).

2) Check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller, it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.

3) Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.

NOTE: The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator, and then travels to the icemaker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it; be sure to inspect any seals or diaphrams. Unplug the refrigerator first.

Unless you're skilled at home repairs, this job is better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson. As a rule, refrigerators are the most dependable of all large appliances. Even so, they do fail to do their jobs adequately on occasion, and when they do, the results can be disastrous because expensive food can spoil in a hurry.
Though most problems call for a repairperson, there are a few simple repairs you can handle yourself by checking the power, controls, condenser coils, and other parts outside of your refrigerator's sealed, hermetic system.

Remember that the best way to lengthen the life of a refrigerator is to clean the condenser coils once a year—or more frequently if they get dirty.

Msd2756geb water tube coming out door not hooked up?


Check diameter of pipe. Suspect its quarter inch. You will then probably need to purchase e.g. from ebay etc a 1/4'' to 3/4'' adapter which will allow you to connect your fridge pipe to a typical water pipe connector (i.e. similar connecting a washing machine), assuming you already have an available water conenction in the lcoation of the fridge!

HOOK UP OF ICE MAKER TO THE WATER LINE


What you have in the back is a 1/4 tube which will feed cold water to the icemaker.

go to any hardware store and ask for an icemaker supply line kit. It will consist of a tapping valve, about ten feet of 1/4 inch tubing and a straight connector.

it will also contain step by step instructions.

You will have to determine what cold water line to tap into that is accessable. Perhaps the kitchen sink cold water supply if it is on the same wall as the refrigerator. Many times the line is run up from the basement.

enjoy your new icemaker.

I have an old Kenmore 26 side by side that dispenses water and ice. At one point it stopped producing ice and dispensing water. I changed the inline filter and it worked perfectly. Happened again shortly...


It sounds like you need to replace your water inlet valve , it is a dual valve for ice and water in the door and they go out often , the solenoid is not opening anymore , it is located where you hook up the water line.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
