Re: broken water actuator
Hi this is tech crazy the solution to the problem is
You should be able to replace this part yourself. Follow these steps to replace the water actuator:
Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
Remove the drip tray (Key 23 in the image below) from the bottom of the dispenser.
the screws (Key 43) from the bottom of the dispenser module cover (Key
4). NOTE: You model may not have screws at the bottom of the dispenser
cover. If not, push down on the top of the dispenser cover and pry out
on the bottom of the cover with a flat tip screw driver to remove it.
Pull to dispenser module cover up to release the top clips and remove this cover and set it aside.
Remove the screws (Key 17) that are on each side of the dispenser module (Key 8).
pull the dispenser module out slightly from the door. It will have
wires attached. Pay attention to how the water tube and the ice door
assembly are positioned. Pull this module out far enough to remove and
replace your water actuator (Key 24).

Your water control valve is defective and will need to be replaced. Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze
Hello, so you just replaced the water inlet valve correct? Here is a video on how to test the icemaker by removing the cover of the icemaker and connecting the L to the V water should immediatley come from the water inlet valve to the ice tray. If it did not and you heard the water valve actuate then there would be an issue with the icemaker in the unit. click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlYCJr9dc3E if you have any further questions message me back Thanks
Cut off a piece of line and go to a good hardware store, they can show you how to fix it. Need a coupling, and a nut and ferrel. House water line goes on one end of coupling, nut and ferrel on the broken water line on fridge. A good hardware store will be able to show you how to fix.
Maybe this will help .. should be diagram of dispenser
the water tray probably just pulls out and there's screws near the base that comes out. up underneath there should be some screws to take out. thhen the unit comes down and out the front. wires and a hose will be coming out with it.
