Water dispenser keeps flowing when water source is turned on
Comment by shigemite, posted on Jun 06, 2008kenmore model 106.51062100 refrigerator... changed water valve twice. Unplugged fridge to see if water valve was defective; upon turning water supply on, water dispensed continuously; thus got another new valve installed since previous valve wouldn't stop water flow. Same problem again with water continuously dispensing when new valve was installed...again, shut off water and no filtered water, nor ice, until problem fixed. Going on three weeks, just about to call repairman, unless fixya can fix it. thanks. shigemiteComment by shigemite, posted on Jun 06, 2008please see comment posted 6/6/08...thanks.Comment by shigemite, posted on Jun 06, 2008sorry...which one would be the drain hose? shigemiteComment by shigemite, posted on Jun 09, 2008could it be an electrical problem? i.e. micro switch, control board, etc.Comment by shigemite, posted on Jun 09, 2008could it be an electrical problem? i.e. micro switch, actuator switch, dispenser control board, etc.

I understand that the water dispenser is dispensing water slowly, from your Frigidaire refrigerator. I suggest changing the water filter. If that does not work, check the lines going into your refrigerator, to make sure they are not kinked. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully.
michael masters is not giving you the proper info. i realize this is from a few years ago but i have to call out a dumb comment when i see it. he told you how to check a whirlpool ice make rand not an lg style ice maker. that you have with an 795 source refrigerator. sorry the he gave you the wrong info. if after 4 years you are still needing help, please respond and i will help you.
Your water control valve is defective and will need to be replaced. Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze
for using FixYa. If both water and ice dispensers are not working then it can
be an issue with the water inlet valve going bad. .To start
withcheck the water line attached to the back of the
refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply
valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next,
place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on
to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace
the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good,
you may have to replace the water inlet valve. If still the issue is not
resolved then remove the ice bin, Remove the wires from the auger motor.
With the freezer door open and the door switch depressed, push the ice cube
release and check for 120VAC between the motor wires. If there is 120VAC then
the motor has gone bad. If there is no 120VAC then the control board (module
time delay) has to be replaced. Please do rate the solution
if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
listen for click of the switch when you try and get water,
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
