SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!

SOURCE: Ice maker not working Kenmore model 106.55226400

Look for an ice cube lodged in the fingers IM. Get a hair dryer and melt that dude. No ice cube? Add some water to the IM mold. If it kicks out some ice but makes no more then you is gonna need a water valve. If it don't kick out no ice then you is gonna need a ice mold thermostat. Either one is very easy and cheap to fix. let me know Kimosabe.

SOURCE: remove faceplate in door of a kenmore frig.

If you look at the bottom of the facial plate, underneath. There are two slots to insert a flat screw driver. You should be able to access everything once you take that off. Good luck

Electrolux fridge water dispenser won't shut off



Then I would assume that the micro switch that you press for water is defective and sticking. I am placing a=> 242100001 Dispenser Module to give you an idea to what I am talking about but if you have a model number for your Electrolux refrigerator I may could find a micro-switch that is replaceable, Thanks Sea Breeze

Your switch is sticking and could be you got debris in the shut off part of the hose when you changed the filter . But I'm guessing switch,exercise it a few times and see what happens.

Kenmore refrigerator, has water dispensor on front, when you put the glass there to dispense it will not stop flowing, you have to bang the door shut


Sounds like the water activator switch is sticking. It may help to clean the area where the switch is including the hinge. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Since shutting the door stops it the above is most probable but the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in could be sticking.

TFX22CR GE refrigerator TFX22CRXFWW does Not dispense ice.


I had this problem with a similar refrigerator. The problem was the slide switch burns itself especially if you slide it from ice to water while holding the glass in to get ice and water into your glass. Better to slide it to ice, press the glass in to get ice, release the glass to stop the ice, slide the switch to water, then press the glass in again to get water. I "fixed" mine by removing the control panel and soldering some of the connections on the slide switch together so that we now have no crushed ice function, but the ice cubes work again. You can also replace the circuit board in the control panel to restore it to like-new operation. I could not find a place to order just the slide switch.

Not sure if this is the same problem with your unit, but sounds the same.

Water dispenser won't stop dispensing water!


Hi I dont have the knowledge of your fridge, but I'm just going to throw this idea your way , please forgive me if im wrong :)

Perhaps the problem is due to syphonage, the discharged liquids are creating a vacuum along the line.

Did you reposition the height of any supply hoses ? none of them should be above/higher the outlet source itself.

You could also try installing a inline reverse flow suppressor
(small plastic filter that only allows one-way direction of flow.

Water or ice will not stop after removing glass.


Although I don't have this problem, I took my dispenser apart tonight for a different reason. Moving the lever with the glass actuates a mechanical switch. It's a really simple mechanism. If I were you, I would check to see if that mechanical switch is sticking. Maybe someone had a glass of soda or something sticky, which splashed up there when they got ice. That could be enough to gum it up.

Taking it apart was not tough. The plastic border pulls right off. Then the assembly that has the buttons and lights on it can be removed by pushing it downward enough so that it clears the plastic holders, and then you just pull the top edge towards you. At that point I unplugged the fridge so I couild disconnect some connectors. Then 4 screws gets the whole glass switch assembly out. You should be able to inspect the mechanical switch operation at that point to see if it is sticking.

Good luck.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?
