Flap to close ice dispenser has fallen down and there is frost building on the outside of the ice cube bin. How do I put it back in? Or how do I take the front part of the ice/water dispenser off to fix...


You would need to install whats called an Ice Door Kit made for whirlpool refrigerators. I am making an assumption that yours is a Whirlpool made Kenmore, your model number starts with 106. This is not an easy repair, you have to modify the door to install the kit, you might want to call Sears to fix it. If you want to take a chance and fix it yourself I can get you the part number.

I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and...


OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:
12_17_2011_1_36_01_am.jpgIf it looks like this model, I have the service manual for it with all the testing procedures.If it doesn't, see if you can get a model number off the unit. They make about 4 different model for this unit.
Happy Holidays!Richard

Ice maker will not make ice Model number


  • When it Won't Make Ice
    • 1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
    • 2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
    • 3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
    • 4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.
  • Hope this tips will help you.

    Have a nice day! : )

    The ice dispenser when pressing it in with a glass does not work, it doesn't seem to push in far enough to activate the ice dispenser but I can reach in with my finger and pull on it and it then will...


    Yes the number you are searching for is called an OEM number or original equipment manufacture's number. 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

    Ice maker does not work. Ice maker controlpanel light flashes twice


    Sears or Kenmore is only a name placed on someone elses product. They make it near to impossible to crack the model number code unless you could look around the frame of the door or go to this link=> Appliance Model Number Locations bear with me as I am stil adding information to the page tonight. The answer is in the Sears Model Number for example 321.65987 The first three numbers are who made the refrigerator. After that the number is model and features all in that string of numbers. I can help you or anyonee but the numbers will need to be located anyway. And knowing sears they will not be cheap on a service call. If need you may contact me here on Fixya or my Forum=> Appliance 911 My contact information is located above the Fixya Ad on my blog here=> Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services, www.pcappliancerepair.com
    Thanks, Sea Breeze
