Ice machine and water not working properly after changing filter

This is a Kenmore side by side model #106.53664300 serial number SP333208 manufactured 08/2003. After changing the water filter the ice maker no longer is making ice. Water is available but will not cut off immediately once the glass has been removed from the lever.

    I too have a whirlpool-manufactured Kenmore refigerator with in-door icemaker. All was well recently until my water filter needed replacement. I removed the water filter for a few days while waiting for my new ones to be delivered. In-door water worked fine without hte filter in place. When I received the new OEM filters all seemed well and in-door water stillw orked fine, but the ice maker never filled. I downloaded the repair manual for the ice maker and went through all diagnostics and manually initiating harvest, but no water refill would ever occur. There is not an ice blockage at the ceiling inlet either (which is a common problem on these models, I believe). It's possible that my problems are coincidental though, as I don't feel the ice mold getting that warm during a harvest (and I can't imagine how a filter change would possible break the ice mold heater). I'm not sure if I need a new ice maker module, or if I also need a new ice maker fill valve/relay.

After changing the water filter, the ice maker is not working. The water dispenser is working properly.


You may need to replace the dual water control valve due to only the water dispenser side of the water control valve being the only side that works. What is the model number of your Kenmore refrigerator? Kenmore model numbers look like this=> 321.235689 as an example. An example of the water control valve if your model number was 321.235689 is part number=> 12001414 Water Inlet Valve

Don't use this example as the correct part. Look around the fresh food section door frame for your correct model number, Thanks

Ice maker is leaking, it runs continuously on my kenmore refrigerator.


If the water continues to leak when the ice maker is shut off its the water solenoid usually found on the back side of the refrigerator. If not then its the ice maker timer. For either repair you'll need make model and serial number to get the proper part.

Kenmore sidebyside no water or ice replaced valve and icemaker still nothing


The first thing I woulb check is the water filter itself. Water comes into the machine via the water valve, and from the valve it goes to the filter and the to its respective area, dispensor or ice maker. It's a very rare case that both the ice maker and water in the door stop working at the same time other than the filter being bad,

I have a kenmore modle 52559100


I am working through Sears Commercial Parts Direct and I cannot find that correct model number. Double check. Filters do not suddenly stop flow. Water control valves yes and when you have an ice maker the water valve has two sides. Water control valves are located most times on rear of refrigerator and near floor where the house hold water enters the refrigerator. Sometimes hiding behind a paper cover. Your number really looks good to me and I was surprised that it will not work. Double check and correct that number and I will be able to assist you better. In a way I wish Sears would not change the numbers. The 525 in the number is who made your model and 525 does not come up. Sea Breeze
