Kenmore side by side refrigerator water dispensor will not shut off

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

I have a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator and the water dipenser quit working, the ice maker works fine. Any solutions?

Check water valves on back of fridge, one is for the ice maker and other is for water dispenser. Need to get the correct and complete model number listed on front and near floor behind the fresh food door. Problem may be the water valve in back or the dispenser switch on the front. let me know and I will try to get it going for you.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

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:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the drip tray (Key 23 in the image below) from the bottom of the dispenser.
  3. Remove 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.
  4. Pull to dispenser module cover up to release the top clips and remove this cover and set it aside.
  5. Remove the screws (Key 17) that are on each side of the dispenser module (Key 8).
  6. Carefully 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).
Reverse the above process for reassembly.
