I have a kenmore coldspot model 106.53532300 and the water will not dispense from the door the icemaker is working just can't get water from the door...really miss it! Can anyone tell me what to do?!...


Hello Ray;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Ok, It may have been the water bottle. But, you have an old unit.
So, lets check it out once more.

1.) After time, from the heat, the plastic tubing for both your water lines to the water dispenser and ice maker will dry rot and crack.
Check: Pull your unit out. Have someone draw a glass of water from the water dispenser, while observing in the back both the water supply valve and the larger plastic tubing going to the water dispenser. Is there a leak when pressurized?
2.) Wait for when your ice maker fills and observe the smaller plastic tubing. Does it leak under pressure.

3.) Drain Pan - This too will crack over time do to heat. Pull your unit out so you can get behind it. Remove the lower back cover.. There are about 8 screws easily removed. Observe the drain tube from the under body of your refrigerator and the black drain pan where it empties. Observe around the drain pan. Are there and brown or dark stains on the floor? If so, then you have a cracked drain pan.
Repair: Unplug the refrigerator. The compressor and surrounding copper tubing prevent you from replacing the pan. When I was in the field, I would take duct tape and seal the cracked area. Then, I would cover the duct tape and surrounding area with a high temp silicone adhesive.

How do I remove the ice water dispenser cover on my whirlpool conquest


Remove the drip tray. Using all your fingers from both hands press down on the bottom of the cover, and at the same time pull away from the door. The top of the trim has tabs that set behind the dispenser housing. To replace the trim, set the upper tabs behind the housing and press in moving down both sides till you get to the bottom.

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Water leaking


there should be a quick disconnect about 4 inches from the bottom of the door. look behind the toe kick. if it leaks from the disconnect try pushing the plastic lines into the disconnect. the disconnect is about 1.5 inches long and should have red or blue ends. to get the lines out you push the colored ends in while pulling the plastic line out, try cutting off the ends smooth and straight up and down and re-insert. if the water is coming out of the bottom of the door you need to replace the water line in the door.

to get the line out of the door. use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the dispenser cover off the door. there are two slots on the bottom of the dispenser facia. use a pen or something hard for a pivot point and use tape to protect door finish. push on the screwdriver until you think the plastic will break, then push a bit harder and it will pop off. now you can disconnect the facia and remove the screws holding the switches etc. disconnect the water line and pull it through the dispenser. to put the facia back on just hook the top and line it up and press the bottom back on.

Water/Ice Dispenser buzzes loudly as soon as freezer door closes.


I am not sure what would be buzzing, but besides the parts in this area that are worked manually, this means that the working parts are not electric they are manual working parts, the parts that are electric are the lights and a switch for different ice types, if you have this option. You can remove the cover
by pushing up on the plastic plate that surrounds the ice/water area with the lights on it, on the back you will see the electric connections to the chip board, you could unplug these connections and see if the noise stops. Now every fridg is the same so make sure there are not any screws holding the plate
on before you try to push it up so it can be removed. Any questions please post back.

Whirlpool GD5SHAXKQ00 Ice/Water dispenser


Hey,

It's pretty easy to remove by yourself. DO NOT force it or it will probably break. Nice and easy will do it. You'll need a flat headed screw-driver and a towel.

-There are 4 retaining tabs. 2 on top and 2 on the bottom.

-Remove the drip tray in the dispenser area

-Start with the bottom. Before starting, look underneath the surround (yes--bend down, stoop or lie on the floor -- your preference) You will see 2 thin slots. That's exactly where the tabs are. Do one tab at a time.

-Place the folded towel under the surround at the same time you are placing the screwdriver tip gently at the slot---DON'T apply pressure to the screw-driver yet.
(The towel will protect the paint and by being folded will provide a slight leverage for the screwdriver) Hold the towel against the door with the same hand you're holding the screw-driver with. If you can't....then cry for help.

-With your free hand press down firmly on the lower part of the surround (where you removed drip tray from) ...at the same time GENTLY pry with the screw-driver.
It shout pop out pretty easily.

-Repeat for the other bottom tab.

-For the top tabs, lift the entire surround up and then out.

-Remove the wiring harness and VOILA!!!

-Show off to your wife.

Water & ice dispenser


First unplug the refrigarator. Remove the plastic casing from above the left hand door. Usually the electical connections for the ice/water dispenser are under there along with the hinge fittings. Through time these connections can work loose. Ensure connections are in good order, refit plastic casing and try. This should take no more than 30 mins so should not casue a problem to refrigerator stock. Good luck.
