Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a kenmore refrigerator model 59592992. I am replacing the housing unit of the water filer as it is leaking. How do I free the two pieces of tubing from the old housing unit? Can i just cut the tubing as there appears to be plenty of slack to reinsert the tubing in the new housing. If I should not cut it how do i get the tubing to release from the old housing unit?

The tubing is pressed in there, it should just pop out when you pull with sufficient power. If it doesn't then the material of the tube has hardened in time and has locked itself on there. Just cut it, even if you will eventually succeed in extracting it , it will just not seal properly again, the material has been stretched beyond its recovery possibilities.

My 2004 Kenmore leaks water at the water filter housing. I put a new filter in but when I wish to get water it overflows at thde top.


Fist issue, plumbers putty should not be used on any water connection for potable (drinking) water, use Teflon tale if you need to. If the leak is at the housing most likely the housing is bad, replace it.

Repairman made service call and checked out the frigidaire. Said everything was ok except there was a leak in the inside water filter housing unit, so he went ahead and bypassed the filter since we have...


The filter under the sink should have nothing to do with the water supply to the icemaker. The "repairman" probably cut off the icemaker water supply by "bypassing" the filter.

What is the cubic feet of 2000 kenmore coldspot refrigerator model #59592992?


I believe that the full model number is 106.59592992. Since the fourth digit after the prefix is a 9, I suspect it is a 29 cu. ft. capacity side-by-side refrigerator.

I hope this helps.

How do I replace the water dispenser tube for a Kenmore Coldspot model # 106.53769201. The end of the line disintegrated at the spot where you put your glass under the dispenser.


Hello,

Ice makers and water dispensers are convenient to have on your refrigerator, but can also cause a lot of aggravation if they are not functioning properly.

If your water valves are not defective and you are still experiencing water or ice delays, you may have a clog in your refrigerator hose line.
Instructions and material needed to fix it up.

  • Towel,Flathead screwdriver,New water hose
  1. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator and place a towel under the line to soak up any residual water that leaks from the hose when you remove it. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Disconnect the hose from the back of the refrigerator by pushing in on the collar while pulling the water tube out. If you have a model with an ice and water dispenser, you will need to disassemble the dispenser on the front of the freezer in order to completely remove the water hose.
  3. Remove the water drip tray from beneath the ice/water dispenser and locate the screws at the bottom of the cover (if any). Remove screws and pop off the panel that houses the dispenser. If the unit does not have screws, you will need to pry the cover off with a flat-nosed screwdriver.
  4. Once the cover is removed, you should be able to see the screws that hold the dispenser unit in place. Remove these screws and reposition the unit so you can free the water hose, by pulling it through the dispenser.
  5. Thread the new water line through the freezer door and reassemble dispenser unit. Push the new water hose into the fitting on the back panel, making sure it is properly seated. Turn on water supply and check for any leaks before moving the refrigerator unit back against the wall.
Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.

My freezer is working great but my refrigerator is warm on my kenmore side by side refrigerator model # 59592992


Look for frost on the backside of the freezer. You might have a bad defrost heater. It could also be a bad evaporator fan motor.

Leak at filter


Nope. You can't bypass the tube style filter... it's the housing that cracked. That has to be removed and replaced. Sorry to give ya bad news, Mariner.

Trouble with ice-maker


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

Water line broken for Kenmore refrigerator near compressor


Cut off a piece of line and go to a good hardware store, they can show you how to fix it. Need a coupling, and a nut and ferrel. House water line goes on one end of coupling, nut and ferrel on the broken water line on fridge. A good hardware store will be able to show you how to fix.
