Replacing Secondary Water Valve? How does it hook back up?

Kenmore side-by-side Limited Edition model # 51672 part # 12002193
The instruction sheet says to re-hook up the water lines but we are unsure which line goes where. Can you help? Can you point us in the directions of a diagram?

Water is pouring from the ice maker on Kenmore side by side, model # 106.56662500


Hello,

The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.

On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

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.

Not getting water to icemaker;Water dispenser on door still working.Icemaker will go through process of dumping ice.No water leaks found.


3 steps: #1, check the fill tube for ice blockage,If not blocked- #2, verify there is power applied to the water valve when the IM cycles. #3 If yes replace the valve, If no replace switch in IM(complete faceplate in some models). Limited possibilities so elimination of what is working will locate the failure.

HOOK UP OF ICE MAKER TO THE WATER LINE


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 Side/Side Frig Model 57765791 Water dispenser quit.


  1. listen for click of the switch when you try and get water,
  2. make sure you have water to valve on back of refrigerator, turn off water and take line loose place in a bucket and turn water on, you should have a strong flow of water, it is common for people to have a self piercing saddle valve on the water line. these valves plug easily
