Water dispenser keeps flowing when water source is turned on

Comment by shigemite, posted on Jun 06, 2008 kenmore 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.

Why is my water dispenser flowing slow


Good Afternoon Friend,

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.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore model# 106.9547651 ice maker has stopped working; water dispenser works.


A valve controls water flow into the ice trays. It is a common source of the trouble you describe. You may be able to get an overhaul kit for just the valve

Kenmore side by side refrigerator water dispensor will not shut off


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

Water and ice dispenser stopped working


Hi


Thanks 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 with check 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

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

Water dispenser won't stop dispensing water!


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.
