Kenmore refrigerator - water line


I have purchassed a new Kenmore refrigerator. I used the old water line from the old refrigerator and I hooked the plastic tube from the back as instructed. It seems that there is not enough water pressure and this is coming very slow from the dispenser. I just found inside the refrigerator a big plastic tube that is attached to the inside, but I do not know if this is linked to the water line or it is just plastic tube provided by the store. There is no mention of it in the manual and i am wondering if this tube affects the pressure or I need to call a technician to change the water line.

How do I change the ice maker water line?

Kenmore is a product from Sears. Therefore I would go into your nearest Sears store and pick up a water line replacement kit. It should come with everything you need as well as some instructions. The instructions will be fairly generic, meaning not necessarily exactly for your specific model of refrigerator, but otherwise should be adequate to get you going. You will need some basic hand tools, such as a pair of pliers or a small crescent wrench. Be sure to turn off the water supply before attempting this. Also have some towels handy as there'll still likely be some spillage.

If by chance your old water line is COPPER, then you may not be able to replace it yourself, as you may need a flaring tool. Also when tightening the connections on a copper line be sure to use two wrenches, one of which is to hold the connector you're hooking the line up to, otherwise you could damage either the fridge or the wall spigot (or both). Just me personally, but if it's a copper water line, I'd leave it to a pro.

Hi my Kenmore side by side refrigerator is hooked up to the "Hot" water line, by the previous home owners. I want to switch to the cold water line. Not sure how.. and what I need to do this. Thank you

This is normally done with what is called a saddle valve. They are available at hardware stores, plumbing shops and places like Lowes, Home Depot, etc. However these are used on metal pipe.
If you have plastic pipe you will have to use a different method.

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.

What you have in the back is a 1/4 tube which will feed cold water to the icemaker.

go to any hardware store and ask for an icemaker supply line kit. It will consist of a tapping valve, about ten feet of 1/4 inch tubing and a straight connector.

it will also contain step by step instructions.

You will have to determine what cold water line to tap into that is accessable. Perhaps the kitchen sink cold water supply if it is on the same wall as the refrigerator. Many times the line is run up from the basement.

enjoy your new icemaker.

Kenmore elite refrigerator water dispensor not working

If you just got this unit, did you purchase it new? Or if it's uner a year old then you should call sera for service under the war. Also, when you first start the unit water has to go through the water tank and it takes 3 - 5 mins before the water starts to work when first hooked up, then should be ok after that. There are several things that can cause the problem. Could have a kinked line in the ref, a bad water valve or even a frozen water tank. Also, did the water ever work since you had it?
