Question about Kenmore 24.8 cu. ft. TRIO Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Water coming the dispenser is dirty

We bought the Kenmore Elite Trio refrigerator just over one year ago. Recently we have had trouble with our water line. Green algae-like like material has been coming out of the water dispenser. We replaced the filter and it did not solve the problem. I image that we have something in the line itself. Is their a way to flush the line with some type of cleanser? Any ideas on how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

If it is using clear plastic tubing from the sink make sure than line is totally behind cabinets and not exposed to light or sun. That will guarantee algae.

Never heard of this before. First I would check the warranty, and try to get someone from the factory service. Does it sit for long periods of time in sunlight? I guess you can try removing the filter and adding bleach before putting it back. You wouldn't want to drink it, obviously.

Water dispenser not working on kenmore trio refrigerator

The tubing inside the door is most likely frozen. Mine did that a year ago. I had to remove gasket and loosen screws around edge and allow to defrost inside door. There was a lot of ice around dispenser and tubing.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Ice maker water not stopping
The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

It is definitely the water filter. With the hardness of the water from our county I have to change our filter every 6 months. After replacing the filter be sure that it is seated well. It can leak if it is not fully engaged. Run water through the dispenser until the air is out.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling

There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.
