Question about Kenmore 26.0 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PureSource 2 Ice & Water Filtration

NO WATER DISPENSING FOR ICE

I can hear the same noise that it use to make when the water flowed, but now no water comes out. Could it be frozen in the line? I took of the plastic white tube leading to the ice making tray and unclogged it. I need water to flow again into the ice maker. Water comes out of the water dispencer.

No ice


First check to see if the ice maker is operating. you can take the face plate off and observe if the gears are turning. The next thing to check is the water solenoid. This operates after the ice maker rotates to a certain degree, pushing on a micro switch that sends power to the solenoid (valve) that opens and allows water to flow into the ice maker basin If this solenoid is working you will hear a loud click. Next, check to see if the water in the inflow pipe is not frozen, by disconnecting the refrigerator AC power. Get a hair dryer and play the heat output onto a small plastic pipe that dumps into the back of the ice maker. This pipe sometimes becomes frozen with water ice and will not allow the water to flow into the ice maker. Mine has done this twice over the 12 tears I have had the refrigerator.

Could be several problems (I'm a homeowner, not an expert). GE had a problem with the water line in the freezer door: not enuf insulation so the line freezes, hence no water flow. I would look at this first, especially if you press the water dispenser handle and you hear the pump, but no water comes out. Ditto if the ice bin is empty or the ice maker isn't making any more ice. If the icemaker is making ice but not dispensing it, then the auger (thing that agitates the ice cubes in the bin) may be broken or frozen. (if frozen be sure ice cubes in bin are loose and not frozen into one big ice cube).

Stopped dispensing water. Can hear a slight clicking noise from inside the freezer - but no water comes out.


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . You can also install pt # WR49X10173 , which is a dispensor heater . This comes with instructions .

Usually that is from the water line freezing up. Behind your refrigerator drawers there is either a plastic tank or a coil of plastic tube........That is where the water runs so your dispenser puts out chilled water. If your fridge gets too cold that will form ice inside and stop the water from flowing. You can defrost it with a hair dryer or just let the fridge sit open for a few hours. Another thing could be the water valve. When you press the water lever on the dispenser do you hear a noise? Kind of a humming noise. Well, that is your water valve, so if you hear it then it is probably working.

Filtered water not dispensing - ice is still coming through okay - when pressing the water dispenser button all you hear is a noise as if water should be flowing


Your water line is probably froze. Look in the back of the refrig section behind the shelves and see if there is a plastic tank, or a coil of plastic wire. That is where your water runs, so it will be chilled. If you are hearing a noise when you push the lever then that is your water valve, and that is good. You need to defrost that line.

GE Fridge Not Dispensing water


First place to start is in the fridge. Look behind the crisper drawers for the water tank. It may have frozen at the outlet line. Try thawing it out with a hair dryer or a heat gun, being careful of course not to melt anything.

Ice maker stop making ice for kenmore 106.56352500


The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice 
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Water Dispencer not working.


check your freezer for ice. do you have alot of ice in your ice maker tray? if so your water line could be frozen. try to self defrost the freezer for about 3hrs to thaw out the water line. check your water valve also. when you call for water do you hear a humming or buzzing noise? on ge fridges ive worked on if you hear a humming noise when calling for water, most likely your water valve is ok. trace the water. meaning where does the water start? at the wall then through a hose then to your valve which is behind fridge on bottom. trace the hoses and you will find the prob
