Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Filtered water My water dispenser has always been very slow to react.  When the switch was hit the light would come on and after a while ~10 sec, you could tell that it was about to dispense when it started humming.  Here lately the the thing doesn't even dispense.  I can wait about a minute and it still won't dispense.  It is a 363.59522996.  I replaced the filter a couple of weeks ago to no avail. Thanks for any help.

Re: Filtered water

The water line that run through the freezer door is frozen. its been a common problem on the GE built refrigerators. (that who built yours for sears) dis connect the water hose hehind the kick plate below the freezer door. use a hair dryer to warm up the inside and outside of the door around the dispenser area to defrost the line. it will take anywhere from 15 to 30 min to get in completly defrosted but it will once it is defrosted

Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?

Don't know which filter you use, so this might not work. Try reversing the filter to see if it got installed incorrectly.

If not, make sure the the water line didn't get kinked and that the valve is open.

I have a leaky spigot what can I do

If the spigot means the end of the water tube in the water dispenser, and it steadily drips even if the dispenser is not used for 10 minutes or so - replace the water valve. If the dispenser drips water mostly wright after you used it - you might have some air bubbles in the refrigerator water tubing.

Not making ice

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

Water dispenser in fridge

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.
