SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!

SOURCE: Water dispenser is not working

I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.

this may still be under woranty check with sears / the padal makes contact with a micro swich and the switch enerjizes the water solinoid at the water line inlet . this solinoid may be sticking open as well. if you unplug the fridge and the water still runs its likely the water valve. if the water shuts off when you unplug the fridge it'll be the micro switch.. good luck

SOURCE: water dispenser wont shut off

Something from the filter went into the dispensor valve and is holding it open. You can try to backflush it with a can of air by disconnecting the filter pushing open the valve while holding the can straw tightly while discharging it. You could also backflush it with water.

How do you remove the in the door dispenser cup and lever for cleaning

Depends on the make/model, but usually there are a few screws that go in from the front that hold the plastic arms in place along with the spring blade. Most of the time you need to remove the decorative plastic cover around the front of the dispenser to get at them. Pay attention to how things go together, or take pics before and during the process. It will save you a lot of headaches later.

How do I get the water to start coming out of the dispenser?

check that the supply valve is open, and that any filtration components are current. In areas with high mineral content, filters will clog/become impenetrable quicker than manufacturer specs,blocking water flow.

Can drinking water with lemon prevent kidney stones? Also, I have been told not to drink city water. What is the best water to drink?

One-half cup of lemon juice concentrate added to drinking water over the course of the day is a preventive therapy for calcium oxalate stone formation.
As for city water, it is safe to drink but the concern is with water softened using a sodium ion exchange. Softened water should not be used for cooking, drinking, or for ice dispensers.

My maytag is model MFD2560HES serial number

does the water dispenser work OK ? if yes , a try this : pour 3/4 of a cup of water into the ice maker, right into where the ejection fingers are. also , take all of the ice out of the ice bin. then , give the freezer time to freeze the water you have poured into the ice maker and see if the ice maker ejects the ice into the bin. if it does, it might reset itself and refill the unit and work normally.

Water dispenser gets stuck

It could be the switch that activates the lever. This happens when you have soda in the glass and then fill your cup with ice. It splashes up to the switch then it becomes sticky.

Water dispencer

Hi. This is normal and there is nothing wrong with your refrigerator. Whenever you replace the water filter on any refrigerator, you must run a couple gallons of water thru the water dispenser until all the air from the new water filter is out. Use a large container to do this. The water will not stop when you pull a cup away because the water valves used on refrigerators are so weak it will not close until it has pressure on both sides of it. If you don't get the air out, the air from your new water filter can go to the ice maker and stop ice production. So flush the air out of your new water filter. The water you are drinking from your drink dispenser may not be healthy. It may contain a small plastic floating substance. This is part of the plastic that the water tank is made of. The chemicals in the water do this. You will have this problem even with a new water filter because the water tank is after the water filter. You have to replace the Water Tank. The water tank is located in the refrigerator section on the bottom back wall. I sell low cost new designed Water Tanks on Ebay as username: themackshack. Good Luck, Mack
