Hi I dont have the knowledge of your fridge, but I'm just going to throw this idea your way , please forgive me if im wrong :)

Perhaps the problem is due to syphonage, the discharged liquids are creating a vacuum along the line.

Did you reposition the height of any supply hoses ? none of them should be above/higher the outlet source itself.

You could also try installing a inline reverse flow suppressor
(small plastic filter that only allows one-way direction of flow.

Where is the water filter on kenmore coldspot 106.9505712

On the front bottom of your unit you have a grill. On the grill there is a round knob. Turn the knob 1/4 turn counter clockwise and pull the filter out. Note the slot on the back of the knob that holds the old filter. Slide the old filter out of the slot and replace with the new filter.
Reinsert the filter with the knob into the filter housing. Turn the knob 1/4 turn clockwise to lock it in.
Now, the new filter has air in it. At your water dispenser, fill cups with water. There will be a lot of air and water coming out. Continue this until all of the air is out of the filter and there is just water fill.
When to change your water filter - Your unit has a water filter change light. This light is not tied into water pressure. It is like a egg timer. Every 6 months it will light. This does not mean you need to change your water filter. Change your water filter when your ice cubes start to get small or the water coming out of your dispenser is of a low flow. Depending on your family size, you may not need to change your water filter for several years.

The filtershould be inside the refurigator side of the unit. But a dirty filter would only slow down yor water flow to unit. Do you get dirty water from the water dispenser?

Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator Model #57282791 no water from dispenser

When was the last time you changed the fridge water filter. Sounds like its blocked if no water is coming out of the hose at the bottom front. Also depending on the fridge design two other culprits are possible.the electric switch that is pressed that cativates the water valve to open and let water pass and the second the water valve itself. I would lean toward the water valve at the back of the fridge, as you said it was getting worse over time u til it just stopped.

Kenmore Coldspot Model 51572200 is leaking water all over the floor

On the bottom rear of the refrigerator as you are looking at it from behind the left side where the water is feeding into there should be a double valve. 1 is for the water and the other to the icemaker. Many times that valve won't shut off, however the switch that dispenses the water is evidentially bad and needs to be checked if it is stuck open.

Kenmore coldspot water dispenser stopped working. Ice maker works. What could be possibly wrong?

On the rear of your refrigerator there is a dual water control valve. One side for ice maker and one side for water dispenser. I believe your side for the water dispenser has failed and they come as a set. Send the Kenmore model number and I will find you one. The number will look like this, 326.256489 for example only. Found near the bottom of the fresh food section door. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Slow filter water stream and hollow ice.

You have a mesh screen in the water supply line where it connects to the water inlet valve. It can be stopped up with sediment.

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,
