HAVE A KENMORE FRIDGE M.#106.74253400 WATER DESPENSOR STOPPED WORKING AN CAN HEAR IT HUMMING AN ALSO THE ICE MAKER WORKS SO I NO ITS GETTING WATER? THANKS


my kenmore did the same thing, It had a duel water solenoid on it and one that let water into the door water dispenser went bad. also my ice cube started to get smaller, the rubber in the other side of the water solenoid was dry rotting and eventually ruined the ice maker. I replaced the duel solenoid and ice maker and had no more problems.The solenoid is on the back of the fridge, it is what the main water supply connects to.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

Water is not coming out of the water dispenser. The ice dispenser is working though. I see this question posted alot, so must be a common problem, but I don't see any answers. I have a Kenmore side...


For water not dispensing problem:----------

There possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the water dispenser. If this tube is blocked then water will not flow, when you depress the water dispenser paddle. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve .This water valve is for letting the water. The main water valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator.This water valve is a twin valve.This valve has two tubes in it.One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber.The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working.The valve is got stuck in one position, so ice maker side is working, but water dispenser side is not working.--------

The valve is not a costly part and can be easily replaced.-----------------


then You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Kenmore Side by Side not making ice


This problem is most likely the water control valve on rear of refrigerator. If your ice maker is empty pour tap water inside it and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then the water control valve. If nothing happens the the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator and the water dipenser quit working, the ice maker works fine. Any solutions?


Check water valves on back of fridge, one is for the ice maker and other is for water dispenser. Need to get the correct and complete model number listed on front and near floor behind the fresh food door. Problem may be the water valve in back or the dispenser switch on the front. let me know and I will try to get it going for you.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker failure


1) Check the filler tube which allows water to enter the dispenser through the back wall of the freezer. This tube may be frozen inside. You can pull the tube out gently and clear it.

2) The inlet valve may be faulty/blocked. Where the water connects to the water valves behind the fridge, try to swap the plugs around from the one valve to the other. They should be colour coded. Then try dispensing water. If water runs into the ice-maker then the ice maker valve is faulty/blocked.
