Water and ice dispenser don't work

  • Marko A Dec 31, 2012

    The lights on the panel are off, the ice dispenser and water dispenser don't work. It appears that there is no power to this panel. Where and how do I fix this. Is there a fuse somewhere?

    Makes sense but is there a way to verify that the problem isn't the ribbon cable or something else?

This is a pretty common problem...

Try unplugging the fridge for 30+ seconds. If the display doesn't light up after you plug it back in then the control board is dead. It's going to need to be replaced.
If you know the model # of your fridge you can search for a replacement part here:

    Ok, I'm still figuring out how this works. Is there a way to test to make sure it is the board and not something else?

SOURCE: Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice

When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

SOURCE: Water not going into icemaker. Water dispenser works fine.

Check the water valve at the back of the fridge if present.

Even if you used blowdryer, ensure that linse are not frozen by performing a complete defrost.

Disconnect water lines from icemaker, and blow with compressor if the above did not work.

SOURCE: Ice maker not getting water

Hi, The first thing to check is the inlet tube going through the back wall. Make sure it isn't plugged with ice. If the inlet is open, you can remove the front cover on the ice maker and locate the to holes marked M an N. Use an insulated wire and strip off about 1" on the ends. Insert the wire ends into these hole and see if the white gear on the ice maker head starts to turn. Let it advance through the cycle and see if you can hear the inlet valve hum when calling fpr water. If water enters the icemaker, you will need to replace the head modual board or the whole ice maker. There is not much difference in cast.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

The button lock switch along with the other switches on the door use one common return wire for power to the solenoids. The freezer door light switch will stop power to the buttons if it has failed.

No water in water dispensor


Don't forget that your dual water control valve has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other side is for water dispenser. The water dispenser side may have recently failed causing water to not enter water filter area or dispenser, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water is not coming out of the water dispenser. The ice dispenser is working though. I see this question posted alot, so must be a common problem, but I don't see any answers. I have a Kenmore side...


For water not dispensing problem:----------

There possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the water dispenser. If this tube is blocked then water will not flow, when you depress the water dispenser paddle. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve .This water valve is for letting the water. The main water valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator.This water valve is a twin valve.This valve has two tubes in it.One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber.The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working.The valve is got stuck in one position, so ice maker side is working, but water dispenser side is not working.--------

The valve is not a costly part and can be easily replaced.-----------------


then You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Water and Ice have tasted like **** since we got the refrigerator (about 1 year ago) I believe the soultion is bypass the storage tank, but I can't find it..


When the Ice Smells
1. Replace water filters every 6 months to avoid musty odors from getting into your ice. If you don't replace the filters, they become clogged with the chemicals they have been removing from the water. In addition to smelly ice, you may see a drop in water pressure if you have a water dispenser, and possibly a decrease in ice cube size.
2. Remove the cap from the new filter.
3. Place the cartridge inside the holder, and twist to the right.

When the ice smells...water & ice have tasted like ***** also.

Good day : )
