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

1 Answer

Water and Icemaker do not work

I was given a Kenmore side by side refer with water dispenser and Icemaker. I have replaced the filter and the water dispenser works the first time I use it after putting the filter on. After that, it does not work. I can remove the filter and put it back and it works the first time, but not after that. The icemaker appears not to work since the water does not work.

Sounds like you need a knew water valve. It is located on the back lower left corner of the fridge.

The water dispenser quit working,i can hear motor/unit turning,would a plugged refrig filter be part of problem?


Hello,

Yes a clogged filter could indeed make the water dispenser not work...it too would affect the icemaker as well, is ice being made?? if yes icemaker is working yet no water being dispensed what ya need to check for is a cracked or broken line and instead of water is leaking out of it somewhere.

Ice machine isn't working


Two things come to mind.

First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.

The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.
