Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Refrigerator water dispenser mechanism will not turn off. I turned off the water from the valve under my sink that is connected to the water line, however, I can hear the dispenser still running (buzz sound). Can I turn remove the panel that houses the dispenser on the front of the door without breaking it? How then do I turn off or fix the switch?

I have a kenmore elite refrigerator 795.79783.901 if I turn on water to fridge the water will not stop coming out of dispenser till I shut off the appliance waterm valve


you have a faulty valve on the dispenser.. possibly just a faulty micro switch keeping the valve open.
Neither are expensive.. but getting into the part of the freezer to change them, might be a bit tricky, as manufacturers always have hidden screws, to deter the uninformed, or to cause them to break more, and then call in the professionals. (them)

Kenmore side by side refrigerator water dispensor will not shut off


Your water control valve is defective and will need to be replaced. Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water dispenser is slow


3 possibilities.
1. Water pressure is low going into the fridge- the way to test this is turn the water off, remove the line from connection in the back of the fridge and put it in a bucket to see the flow. The water should be shooting out with good pressure. If it is not, then you have a plumbing issue, likely at the valve under your sink.
2. Water filter is clogged- If your model has a water filter, it should be changed every 6 months.
3. Bad water valve. The solenoid valve in the fridge, right at the back where the water connects could be going bad and not opening all the way.

No water coming from water dispenser.


It is possible the water control valve for that dispenser has failed and will not open. This happens a lot for those and the ice maker valves. All you need is the model number for your refrigerator and that will look like this for Kenmore. 213.564897 for example. and I will help you find the correct part number. Sea Breeze

Internal water dispenser not working ...already tried changing filter.


HI, the water inlet valve should be inspected for damage, or clogs at this time . This will be the culprit.(check for frozen lines as well)

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze
