I would suggest making sure the coils under the refrig are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also , letting the ice build up so it gets closer to the bottom of the ice maker (coldness of the ice will help keep the ice maker cold ) will result in ice maker cycling more often (making ice) .

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.
CAUTION
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

Whirlpool double door refrigerator model# ED5KVEXVB04 water dispenser is not working to my knowlegde my ice maker is fine I've changed the water filter and still nothing but when i remove the water fi


Replace the water filter. These things get clogged with the debris they're intended to filter. I'd be surprised if ice is being made if the filter is that clogged. Change the filter at least annually.

How do I fix my water dispenser?


The ice maker would fill slowly even if you only have a "dribble".
It sounds as if your filter light may in error and the filter may need to be replaced. Unless the one your refrigerator uses is very expensive I would replace the filter before calling a technician. If that does not solve the problem, try googling for an answer to your question. Others may have had a similar experience and know the
cause and how to correct it.

Replaced the water filter. the refrigerator is making ice but not dispensing water


Is there any packaging from the new water filter restricting the flow. Check for anything blocking the water flow near where you replace the filter and check for correct installation. If this problem was the reason you replace the filter check the switch that dispenses the water. Make sure it isn't "iced up".

you've already done the first thing i suggest, and that is to change the water filter. But if you still cant get ice made, you have a problem with either your ice maker or your water valve, or an electrical issue in the ice maker system.
