Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

We have Kenmore side by side model 795.5101. Two days ago the water dispenser lost pressure and only drips out water, the water in the ice trays only fills up the two far left cubes. We have already installed a new copper water line going to the fridge incase there were kinks. We also emptied out the ice maker to make sure there were no clogs there. We are thinking this has to be inside the unit. It was working perfectly two days ago and we just bought it july 16 2010. Thank you in advance for any help!

Check to make sure you freezer is at 0 to 5 degrees. If it is not the water valve to the ice maker will not even open.

SOURCE: Water Dispenser Drips

Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water

Just had this issue - after checking all line connections, I pulled the ice maker feed water line from the back of the unit and found the tube was blocked with ice. Melted the ice with some hot water, and all is good once more. I would check for this before getting into the solinoid.

Auto Ice maker in Whirlpool fridge, not producing ice. I suspect the water feed line might be frozen since it was working fine two days ago. I haven't heard the water fill and the tray is empty.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Does anyone know how to fix an ice maker?


When the ice maker calls for water it pours for about 7 seconds if more will overflow and drips into tray , but the most common problem is the dual valve that leaks even after ice maker called for water (this valve is located in the back of the fridge at the bottom where the water line is hooked up.)

Ice maker drip into ice bucket and manual cycle leaks more water


Need to take the ice maker out to measure the amount of water input into the ice tray. In this case the tray was already full (from the leaking valve). The spillage I saw was just the tray overflowing. Time for a new valve.

Water keeps dripping after it dispenses water thru the door


When you push the button, the CLICK you hear when the water flows is the Water delivery solenoid opening to let water thru, then snapping shut when U R done. The Spring is weak (prob wrong type, size, strength at factory) or the valve seal is cracked, torn, hardened or crushed.

Since all this is inside the door, you will either have to take it apart to see/fix/replace.

Quick fix: turn down the water pressure coming in(?)

Call Mr. Handyman to fix.

If under warranty - they might fix this for you for free
If this is a factory defect, there might be a recall in place for repair/replacement parts

Good Luck!

Kenmore Coldspot 10650522100 - water not getting to icemaker


look and inspect closely why the water is not going down the ice tray. maybe the soft hose to lead the water down to the tray is kinked or broke.

check also if there are still ice in the tray, they could have not dropped yet that is why water is just overflowing on the tray.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Ice and water dispenser lock light stays on and comes back on quickly after pushing and holding. No water or ice dispensed while light on. Kenmore Elite 23.1 ft side by side refrigerator


I resolved the problem on my Kenmore Elite model 106.55616400 by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Model #106.50544001


It's time to replace the dual water inlet valve (the part the water line connects to). A bit of sediment or other fine object can get in the seat or the material itself can deteriorate and allow a tiny amount of water to pass up to the icemaker.
