Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
Our refrigerator is 1 year old and about 6 months ago it started to make a slightly louder noise at is dispensed water. Now it is a high shrill squeal. I have looked at the lines to check for a kink or blockage, but didn't get any insight.
You may have to remove the line from the ice maker solenoid and check to see if it has a screen. If it does you may have to clean it. You will find the solenoid at the bottom in the back. Just follow the water line as it comes into the refer. at the bottom. It should be attached to the valve. Sometimes there is a copper line that has a female connector that screws into the valve. It is sometimes the size of a regular garden hose. Whether it is or isn't if it is removable remove it and check for a screen. If there is one clean it. If there is not you may have to replace the valve to get rid of the noise as sometimes the solenoids get weak or swell and they won't open up all the way.
