Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

Please help!! My landlord is out of town and the Kenmore Side by Side refrigerator in my rental, (model number 596.50392001) with front ice and water dispenser has stopped cooling and freezing. I can hear the motor running and the light comes on when I open it, so I know I have it plugged in (ha ha), but all the food in my freezer is thawing and the food in the refrigerator is getting warm. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! Thawing in Colorado.

Water tube to ice tray freezing up


Repairmantx is correct. Your dual water control valve is oozing water past the water valve that is used for the ice maker. Locate your model number and search for a dual water control valve if you have a water dispenser. Model numbers for Kenmore refrigerators looks like this example 325.326598. The first three numbers are the company that made your Kenmore refrigerator=> Kenmore - Who Made It for them?

We have a Kenmore Refridgerator in our rental apartment. The light for the water filter went to red. We called the landlord but they claimed that they replaced it 3 months ago. They suggested we hit the...


recommended replacment time is 3 months and the computer knows it was replaced 3 months ago and has counted down the time the reset button was last pressed and determined its been 3 months. Depending on water quality in your region it may not need to be replaced unless the in door water or ice taste funny or the water dispenses slowly through the door because the filter was clogged and having a hard time having water pass through it.

I have a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator and the water dipenser quit working, the ice maker works fine. Any solutions?


Check water valves on back of fridge, one is for the ice maker and other is for water dispenser. Need to get the correct and complete model number listed on front and near floor behind the fresh food door. Problem may be the water valve in back or the dispenser switch on the front. let me know and I will try to get it going for you.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Trouble with ice-maker


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

Most likely the second one.

I have a kenmore side by side with water an ice out the door


If you do not find the filter located in the front grill/toe plate below your freezer door or if you do not find it hanging in the top of the refrigerator section then you do not have a filter on your model. You may add an inline filter between the water supply valve of your house and the water connection on the back of your refrigerator. Since you posted it is an older model I bet you do not have a built in filter.
