It sounds like the water tap from the source is clogged, or the vinyl tubing running from the water source is crimped somewhere. I would check the tap first to make sure the valve is not clogged. You close the valve clockwise ,then remove the tubing. Have a bucket handy. Open the valve counterclockwise a little at a time until water started to drip. Place the bucket under the valve to catch the water. Open the valve a little more and let the water go into the bucket. Do this until you are satisfied that the tap valve is not clogged. If this does not solve the problem then check the tubing to see if you have crimps in the line. Then close the tap valve clockwise down tight. remove the tubing from behind the frig and if you have enough slack, take that end to the tap valve and the bucket, place the frig end of the tubing in the bucket, open the tap valve until you are satisfied the flow is nomal., close the tap avel and hookup the frig end. Open the tap valve an the test the water dispenser for flow.

DOES THE THIS FRIDGE MODEL #106.74912401 REQUIRE TO REPLACE WATER FILTER FOR FRONT DOOR WATER DISPENSE?? ITS A KENMORE ELITE


HI. When a filter has reached its filtering limit, it must be replaced. Once the filter has reached its filtering limits, it will not allow for proper water flow. This will affect the operating status of the dispenser. With that being said, there are other issues that will affect the dispensers abilities as well. These issues are a faulty water inlet valve assembly, and frozen inlet lines. If you are having issues with the dispenser, make sure you inspect these areas as well. Your filter should have an installation date on the label. check to see that it is not over a year old. if so, it should be replaced.

The filter is located behind the front lower grille work. The grille should have a cut out space for it to slide into.

Water comes out of the water dispenser in a trickle. Side by side model, icemaker in the door. Water filter was just replaced; water was only coming out in a trickle before replacement. Model 106.57033602


Sounds like the solinoid valve in the back of the fridge is not closing all the way.usually located at the the bottem right. replace the valve. It will have a 1/4 inch plastic hose line attached to it. shut off the water source first, then remove the valve, be sure to write down the model and serial number before you go to a appliance shop.

Water/ice dispenser not working


Depending on the age of your house, large chunks of minerals may have dislodged in the water piping system, and is flooding the filter cartridge with trash. I had this happen recently on a 15 year old house that water stopped flowing in 4 cold water faucets of the bathroom.

Try this -

1) Roll the fridge out from the wall
2) Turn the water off at the wall.
3) Disconnect the water line from the back of the fridge
4) Get a bucket and stick the line into the bucket.
5) Slowly open the valve and see if water comes out. If it does, let it run for 20-30 secs at a decent flow, then turn off. If not water comes out, then you have a different problem. The cause may be the same, but it's not the refrigerator.

If water does come out, check the bucket to see if there are chunks of mineral buildup in the bottom, or floating in the water.

If there are minerals, then again, let the line run until the water runs clear. Open the valve as full open as you can to increase the water velocities and flush the chunks. Also, if no water comes through the tube, there may be trash in the valve itself, and you will likely need to call a plumber to repair unless your handy. I can describe how to repair, but that is another subject.

If everything flushes clear and you have flow, then get yourself a new filter, and try again. If there was mineral buildup, it is possible that some got through the filter and has built up inside the refrigerator water tubing. That again is another issue that I can help you with.

Kenmore elite refrigerator water dispensor not working


If you just got this unit, did you purchase it new? Or if it's uner a year old then you should call sera for service under the war. Also, when you first start the unit water has to go through the water tank and it takes 3 - 5 mins before the water starts to work when first hooked up, then should be ok after that. There are several things that can cause the problem. Could have a kinked line in the ref, a bad water valve or even a frozen water tank. Also, did the water ever work since you had it?

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.
