Unplug the female connector on tear of refrigerator on the side that feed the dispenser control. With a voltage meter place the 2 probes while some presses the dispense water control. You should get 120 volts there when the dispenser switch. Thanks Sea Breeze

    Here is a photo of that control valve.Part number WR57X10032 Water Control Valve

    You can also test the two solenoids on the valve with an ohm meter . They should measure very much the same. If not the need to be replaced. Click here=> for Appliance Parts Point and Click Part WR57X10032 Their home page Here You can reach me HERE Most likely only one side of the Water Control Valve. If every thing we talked about works please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice despensor is switch is not working but it is still making ice that I retrieve by pulling ice bucket out and dumping in bowl or glass?

EDIT: Go to the end of my reply and try the last suggestion first please? Sorry, I got ahead of myself.

You should cut off the water supply to the fridge and empty the ice receptacle then you can start removing the ice/water dispenser cavity while looking for the switch that the ice dispenser actuates to get the motor turning. I would start there and use a multimeter (VOM) to test the switch, if it checks okay I would then look at the motor that drives the auger (screw looking thing that moves the ice to the dispenser tube).
Though, if you hear the motor running when you hit the switch? The ice could have just fused around the auger and gently as possible, breaking it up may be the fix the problem and you'll be good as new. Put your ear against the freezer door while pressing the ice dispenser switch to listen for the motor as it may be very quiet through all of the insulation without the noise of the ice that usually is getting pushed through?
PS: I would try my last suggestion before emptying the bin and checking the switch and motor as if you hear the motor running this will tell you that the switch and motor are functioning.

Last night, I connected an active water line to the back of my Kenmore side by side. The ice maker is making ice but water water and ice is not coming out of the dispencer. There is another water jug...

You have a dual water inlet valve where your water supply connects. One goes to the ice maker and the other goes to the water dispenser by way of the water reservoir you mentioned in the fridge.

Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing.You should hear the ice door open and the augur motor turning to turn the augur which pushes the ice out the door. If the augur doesn't turn Take all the ice out of the bin and try. perhaps the motor is too weak or the augur is locked up. Take the bin out and try to see if the motor will turn with no load. The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter when you try the dispenser. If you are, probably bad motor. If not ,dispenser switch or solenoid is not working.

Water dispenser not working

I had the same problem. Your water line is frozen. Turn off your freezer and the water line will unfreeze and it will work. You can see about putting in a heater on your water line. There have been mixed reviews on whether or not it works. The water line just froze again, so I may try the heater.

Ice maker will not dispense the ice

The auger motor and coupling in the rear may be frozen and won't turn.
Remove the ice bin.
Place a screwdriver or similar device in the forks of the auger and twist counterclockwise till it moves. The replace the ice bin and try again.
It will be difficult to move.
If that does not work. Turn off the fridge and use a hair dryer to hrat the auger gear and motor till it frees up.

Texas, sounds like your water reservoir is frozen up. Remove your 2 cripser drawers, you will see the reservoir behind them. Take a hair dryer and go over the tank and tubing ends. See if the water starts flowing. I find a lot of frozen water reservoirs on these french door models. They have a insulation kit for them. Catriver.
