Question about Kenmore 53582 / 53584 Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Kenmore side-by-side dispenses water but makes no ice.

We have a Kenmore, tag model# 106.53582300. The ice maker stopped working over time - at one point, we were getting "hollow" ice-cube, which I think means water was trickling in too slowly. Now, no water is getting in at all. Checked the shut-off arm, it is in the down position. I disconnected the tube that goes from the valve at the bottom up to the ice maker and no water came through it, so I think the problem is that the valve won't open. I don't know where to go next, though. I'm thinking the valve could be jammed/clogged, but before I spend cash on a replacement, I want to make sure the valve is getting the signal to open/close, and that it's not an electrical or logic problem. I'm also assuming the valve isn't serviceable and can't be repaired. Any thoughts on my next step would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Its the problem of water inlet valve. It's a dual valve. This valve has two tubes in it. One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber. The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working. The valve is got stuck in one position

Kenmore coldspot water dispenser stopped working. Ice maker works. What could be possibly wrong?


On the rear of your refrigerator there is a dual water control valve. One side for ice maker and one side for water dispenser. I believe your side for the water dispenser has failed and they come as a set. Send the Kenmore model number and I will find you one. The number will look like this, 326.256489 for example only. Found near the bottom of the fresh food section door. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water works the ice is not


Your water valve is stuck open. Is it for the ice maker or the water dispenser? It could be the switch in the door calling for water instead of the valve. Does it stop when you unplug the refrigerator?

Kenmore side by side water dispenser has stopped


Most likely need to replace the water inlet valve. The water supply line should be directly connected to it. There are 2 valves bracketed together, 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispencer. You will probably have to buy both valves, but want to do this anyway as the second valve will fail soon. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.

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?
