Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a side by side Kenmore fridge (it actually says model 50522101) that is not dispensing water. It still makes ice. When I open the grill on the bottom, I see water is sitting in the clear tube/water supply. Light still works. When I press on the water dispenser, nothing happens at all.
I could not locate any white tank where the water comes to/from. There is only a clear plastic water line behind the crisper drawers, that is coiled up and goes up to the water filter at the top on one end, and down through the bottom of the fridge on the other. The coiled line seemed like perhaps it was frozen, so I took a hair dryer to that but it didn't help. I also tried removing the cardboard cover in the bottom back of the fridge, to see if perhaps the white tank was back there, but it was only
more line, which goes towards the front of the fridge, where it goes up into the corner of the door.

Please read this from a different brand, check behind your crisper drawers for a "reservoir", if you have one, this may be the fix!
It is possible that your water reservoir is frozen. This is located usually behind the lower fridge side drawers. There is a white "tank" that has a water line going to and from. The tank is there to provide "cold" water. I have had mine freeze on several occasions, and the easiest fix for me is to remove the crisper drawers, and use a hair dryer to help melt the ice. It can take several minutes, so remove any food that you don't want to get warm!
Remember to be careful with the hair dryer, as it is an electrical device!
I hope that this works for you. The product manual for my GE refrigerator suggests that you call a repairman!

1) Check the filler tube which allows water to enter the dispenser through the back wall of the freezer. This tube may be frozen inside. You can pull the tube out gently and clear it.
2) The inlet valve may be faulty/blocked. Where the water connects to the water valves behind the fridge, try to swap the plugs around from the one valve to the other. They should be colour coded. Then try dispensing water. If water runs into the ice-maker then the ice maker valve is faulty/blocked.
