    I have the same do I fix it and how do I get to it in order to repair it or replace the switch??? The ice maker works fine and is getting water. The water dispenser -- no water at all. We replace the small plug-in water pump at the back, lower right hand side of the refrigerator, installed new water filter too. Still not working. Where is the switch someone was talking about and how do I get to it to repair/replace it?

You have either a bad water valve or a bad water switch behind where you depress for water

I saw your response to another Kenmore frig and I have a similar problem I want to ask you about. I have a Side-by-side Kenmore frig(model 106.9555722) that we've had for 16 years!! Other than r

I have seen this one other time in all my years of appliance repair and changing out the "water inlet valve" corrected the problem. I don't have an answer to why it did, but it did. Here is the valve for your unit.
After you change the valve be sure to purge the water line for a good 5 - 10 mins to get all the nasty water out. Keep me posted!

My water dispenser has started coming on by itself at random intervals...the only way I've found to stop the flow when it starts is to open the freezer door.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Kenmore fridge, however if you could provide the complete model number and possibly the age of the unit I would be better equipped to assist you without generalizing on what it may or may not be.

I know many of the Kenmore fridges had diode failures causing water to dispense during the ice-maker fill cycles....but, let me know and we can go forward from here. I'll watch and look forward for your reply. Thank you for visiting FixYa for your inquiry.

Icemaker not working at all in the freezer.

turn the gear on the IM manually till it begins turning on its own. It should cycle and fill with water. If no water you will have to figure out if it is a water supply problem or the switch on the IM. If it fills with water and no ice is produced in a couple hours check the temp of the freezer. It must go below 5 degrees to operate the IM. If it is below 5 and still no ice the IM Thermostat is faulty. Eric

I have a coldspot kenmore


At first blush it sounds like the water valve that supplies water to the ice maker is sticking or leaking and letting too much water in.

If you can, watch how much water fills into the ice maker tray (very boring stuff). If it overfills the icemaker tray, then the water valve or timer is malfunctioning and needs repair or replacement.
