Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
Kenmore side by side fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser.
Appliance was turned off June 1 09 and turned on again Oct 1 09. We go away in the summer.
Ice dispenser is making and dispensing ice--so water is going in. Water dispenser is not working. I noticed in the spring--before it was turned off--that it sometimes "hesitated" before water came out. Any idea what the problem is (blocked dispenser tube? etc??) and can I fix the problem myself (female 68 yrs--good with "stuff")? Don't know how old applicance is it was in the home when we purchased it 6 years ago. Everything else about it is working just fine!!
Thank you in advance for your advice.

If you can't hear the solenoid on the water
inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the
water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.
If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it doesleave the door open till it thaws.
If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there.
