Icemaker and water spout in door not working

Probable inlet water solenoid valve failure. This solenoid valve is located on the back of the unit and attached to the water supply line from your house.

Where is the solenoid valve located?

The solenoid valve is at the connection where you screw on the hopes from the water supply to the machine.

Refrigerator overflowing water

If the drain pan is overflowing, they are made to catch drips. But if you overfill the glasses a few times a day the pan will overflow because there is no drain for the pan. You have to soak it up with a sponge if this is the case. If its leaking then there is a solenoid in the back of the refrigerator that is sticking, if so remove the solenoid valve wire connectors, the water lines and the solenoid valve water control valve and replace. Local appliance dealer should have one for about $60.00 or so. They make a universal solenoid water valve that fits most refrigerators. Good luck I hope this solves your problem. Please post a solved comment on fixya, so I receive credit for the solve. This will increase my ranking on That is how I get paid. By knowing I am helping someone!!!

We own a Kenmore Side by side refrigerator, model #253.54622406. The water has stopped coming out of the water dispenser in the door. What could cause this?

if the ice is opperating normaly listen for a click or humm from the water valve if nothing it may be the switch first check for power at the valve when switch depressed if present replace the valve if valve has power and you hear it oppening and closing it or the line to the dispenser may be plugged. if no ice either check the water supply to the fridge and the filter in the fridge if there is one.

Kenmore 5483300 side by side. no ice!

your fridge will have a dual water inlet valve, one for water and one to supply water to the ice maker. it could be that the solenoid on the valve that supplies water to the ice maker is not working.

No water to icemaker. Water in door works well.

the water that enters the ice maker is controled by a thing called a solenoid valve (electricaly operated) the" water in door system" is a manual operated valve.. typicaly when the ejector rolls around to put the ice in the tray the solenoid opens lets water in then closes could be solenoid / wireing or controler
good luck
