Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Interior Water dispenser not working

I have the Stainless Steel Trio which I purchased in 2/07. I love it!

The water dispenser which was not used often stopped working. I can hear it trying to dispense by the hum when I push the button. I just changed the filter hoping it would be that easy. No luck.

The ice maker is working fine.

Same as described. Water filter blue bypass cap has been tried although filter replacement not indicated on advanced temperature control. Supply plumbing and water pressure specs have been checked. No saddle valve used. It appears that (sounds like) no water is getting past the filter head. Temp is set @ 39* .

    Depressed button for 2 plus mins.There is no audible indication of air being bled from the tank.There is an audible hum in the area of the filter while the button is depressed but no water.Have raised temp to 43* in case tank or line is frozen.

    Follow up - I raised the temp earlier today. Double-checked interior temperature with a thermometer (actual temp was 3 degrees colder than showing on panel). It took almost 9 hours but obvious that the unit was frozen somewhere inside as now water is coming out.



    Thanks for the tip Master_Tech, but I'm glad that was not the problem.

If you have not yet used it you will need to bleed the air out of the tank in the refrigerator hold the button in for a few mins to flush this out

White film on dishes and interior


White streaking is caused by too much rinse agent. (jet dry) Most all dishwashers now have adjustable rinse agent dispensers, so you can set them to a lower setting when you have soft water, and a higher setting if you have harder water. The adjustment is generally right where you add the jet dry. Other possiblilities would be a leaking jet dry cap, or a defective jet dry dispenser.

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.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Interior Water dispenser not working


I just had the same problem and symptoms. And it was reading your thread that put me on the right track. I put a thermometer inside and found that the temp was about 3 degrees colder than shown on the panel. I figured the line may be frozen in some area and turned the temp up 5 degrees. After about 10 hours I tried the dispenser and now am getting water out again. Maybe this will work for you - it was at least free!
