Kinked the plastic water line tubing and created a leak at the junction where we connect to the copper tubing. replaced the connector junction. water came out of door as normal for a day. then later...

0f77a298-2ae6-4ab5-882a-bc7adb734120.jpgKenmore has model numbers that look like this=> 123.1234567 Can you find your model number around the fresh food section door? Make sure the water control valve is opening when you press the dispense lever. Sometimes they sound like they open but they are either mechanically or electrically defective. You also could have another kink in the water line or a defective lever switch. This is just going to be a lot of things to check until we find the cause. I am here to answer any questions or if you have more comments that will help us find the problem. Model number is also important so we can locate the user manual that explains filter change....Sea Breeze

Refrigerator part of coil freezing up, what would be the problem?

2) Some refrigerators contain timers that control the self-defrosting heaters. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find the timer, depending on the model of your refrigerator. In most cases, side-by-side refrigerators that have temperature control knobs at the top of the fridge compartment often have the defrost timer located near the thermostat behind the control knobs. It looks like a small, round object with one flat end that has four electrical prongs. It is also often located in the control panel, behind the fridge or behind the foot kick panel at the base of the appliance. Use a flathead screwdriver to advance the timer until you hear a click. This should start the defrost heater. If it doesn't, the timer probably needs to be replaced. Continue to turn it clockwise and a second click will be heard, which turns off the defrost heater. If the timer isn't clicking, simply pull it out and "plug in" a new timer.refrigerators that don't have timers have control panels that control the self-defrosting unit instead. The control panel can sometimes be tested using the controls on the water dispenser or by removing the rear of the front panel to access the controls. A simple press of the button will run several diagnostics that will test your defrost timer, thermostat and heater. The specific instructions vary depending on the model of your Kenmore refrigerator. Consult your owner's manual to run the diagnostics if you have a control panel in your refrigerator.

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

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?

Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

Our Kenmore refrigerator model 106.9700516 has water under the crispers. We think that it is from our defrost line? Could this be right or is there some other problem?

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Kenmore side by side refrigerator

If you got a parts manual for your Kenmore the Illustrated Parts breakdown will usually show how to access the hardware.
(I would think you have to remove the inside shelf assembly to get access to screws).
How ever search the web for your kenmore model number, alot of places sell replacement parts and you can get an idea how to replace by looking at the sequence of "IPB", shown at some of these web sites.
