Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite Model 795.7105. A plumber used bread on a water line to dry a connection and repair a leak. Now the water dispenser is very slow. I removed the filter and inserted the bypass, but the water is still running very slow. Any ideas on how to clean the the water line in the fridge?

Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

SOURCE: Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge

I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Icemaker not working

The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

What causes leak between filter and filter housing on kenmore elite model 40141003010.


Hello Emile;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I assume your changed the below component:

25693704-zbtre13rzitqz5mqvrpod1im-1-0.jpg At the ends of the plastic tubing are plastic push pull connectors. If the tubing is not properly seated and locked into the connector you will have a leak.
You may also have a crack in the connecting tubing from the water tank.
When you use your water dispenser, the water dispenser solenoid valve allows 65 PSI water pressure into the plastic tubing line, where if you have a bad connector or a crack in the line will cause a leak.
The is a plastic cap on the top of the above component.
1.) Put your fingers behind the above component where the tubing goes into the plastic mounting head. More often than not you can get bad parts
2.) Have someone push the water dispenser lever. Observe if water is running down the plastic tubing or if your fingers are getting wet.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

Periodic water leaking from Kenmore Elite K701


hello Adrian. I am suspicious that the standing drain pipe behind your machine may sometimes over flow. To find out, pack some dry newspaper around the drain hose where it enters the drain line behind the machine. If that newspaper gets wet you will know that the drain is sometimes overflowing. If that is the case, snake that drain or force a garden hose down it and run hot water thru it for ten minutes. J.

Leak in the shower is leaking water through the ceiling


Hi lorenzotwalk,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: When you use the shower, water leaks through the ceiling.

First, since it only leaks when you're using it you can ignore the water lines. Now comes the detective work. Look very closely at any place the water can squeeze thru, i.e. cracks in grout or caulk, etc. Don't forget to look on the floor imediately outside the shower and around the shower door if any. If found it must be scraped out, cleaned and dryed to get good adhesion, then caulked with a high quality silicone caulk (color of your choise). Any other caulk will crack no mater what they say.
Let dry for 24 hrs.
If you havent found this kind of problem it's time to look at the drain line connection. You may have to open the ceiling to do this, that's why I'm always carefull in the first step. Turn the water on and watch the drain connection. If it leaks there, it must be repaired. In this case you might cunsider checking the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!

I have a Kenmore model 106 9555710 SxS - no wate through door


check inside the bottom of the refrigerator for water, the water line goes thru the back of the refrigerator and it may have cracked and leaking inside instead of going to the dispenser.
if not then water is most likely frozen in the line going thru the back of the refrigerator. look behind the pans in the refrigerator and there should be a coil of clear plastic water line, this is the reservoir that chills the water for the dispenser. sometimes it will freeze up if the refrigerator is very cold.
