Ice maker and dispenser is not getting water

Make sure "Stop Bar" is all the way down. Check water filter (if applicable. If water filter needs replaced, it can stop water from entering the system). Unplug the fridge or shut power off at fuse box for 20 minutes. After restoring power, If ice maker does not start after a few minutes, Check water inline. (if fridge has been moved, it could have pinched the inline). Check the point of where the inline starts (if possible, disconnect and flush inline. The inline has been known to get clogged at their point of origin coming off of a main water line)

How do I "Prime the Water Supply System" refereed to in use and care guide that came with my new Kenmore French Door Bottom Freezer, #253.70413411. Cannot find instructions in the manual only reference to...

Assuming you followed the water line installation directions and you have water available to your new refrigerator/freezer here is the rest of the "priming" info you requested. (basically it tells you how to run a bunch of water through the system by filling cups or glasses to remove any debris and/or air...

Automatic Ice & Water Dispenser
Priming the Water Supply System
1. Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle. 2. Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. It may take about 1½ minutes. 3. Continue dispensing water for about three minutes to flush the system and plumbing connections of any impurities (stopping to empty the glass as necessary).
Ice Maker Operation & Care After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely.
Turning the Fresh Food Ice Maker On and Off Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off icon on the control panel. Press and hold the "Ice Off" icon for three seconds to turn the ice maker "ON" or "OFF". The ice maker is turned off when the LED above the "Ice Off" icon is illuminated.
Using the Ice Maker after Installation Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.
NOTE The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after three minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle.
IMPORTANT On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication of low water pressure or the water filter needs to be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it's been six months or longer since you last changed your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may require the filter to be changed more frequently.
IMPORTANT Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, set the ice maker's On/Off icon to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.
Hope this helps. Randy

Ice maker not dispensing - no hum

Good Morning Friend,

I understand the ice maker will not dispense ice on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26R4A. I also see that there is no hum and it does not seem to be getting power. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, try getting water out of the dispenser as well as ice. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with receiving water out of the dispenser area of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# LGUS2642LF2.I also see that you have changed the water filter as well as checked and replaced the inlet valve with no positive results, other than it sounds like it wants to dispense water and makes a humming sound. I suggest resetting your refrigerator, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power has been restored, try getting water out of the dispenser. If you are still having trouble, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause of your refrigerator not dispensing water. Hope this is helpful.

At the back cover of the fridge you will find a double electric valve. The easy way to find valve is to follow water supply tube to your fridge
Unplug fridge and check with multimeter if one of the coils burned out and should be replaced. Make sure you close water shut off valve before removing solenoid. Good luck

Ice marker stopped making ice

There is a test button underneath of the motor side of the ice maker. Unplug your refrigerator for 5 minutes then push the test button on the ice maker if it doesn't move you need an ice maker if it does move and you still don't get any water the metal tube that supplies the water to the ice maker is frozen up and blocking water from coming into the mold.

Water despenser

The water dispensing valve may not be functioning, if the valve buzzes or hums when the water dispenser is pressed the valve may be mechanically deficient, if there is no sound whatsoever the switch for the dispenser,the dispensing valve coil or its electrical connections may have failed.
