SOURCE: no water to ice maker

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.


  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

    SOURCE: kenmore elite refrigerator water dispensor not working

    If you just got this unit, did you purchase it new? Or if it's uner a year old then you should call sera for service under the war. Also, when you first start the unit water has to go through the water tank and it takes 3 - 5 mins before the water starts to work when first hooked up, then should be ok after that. There are several things that can cause the problem. Could have a kinked line in the ref, a bad water valve or even a frozen water tank. Also, did the water ever work since you had it?

    SOURCE: Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge

    I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!

    SOURCE: smelly water from door dispensor

    I had the same problem. Drove me crazy and cost me about 5 filters at $50 a pop until I found the solultion. Water in the Sears/LG refrigerator that I have (french door trio) goes through the filter then into a container on the left front door of the refrigerator. That container stores the water so it can get cold and it also equalizes the flows in the system so that when you put your glass under the spigot the flow is steady and the water is cold. Problem is .... this tank can build up with algae/slime/foul tasting stuff. Since it is after the filter, no matter how many times you change the filter it will have no impact on the water in this container. That is why if you use the water spigot a lot, the water seems to get a little better (as the tank water gets diluted) but as soon as you don't use it for several hours or more, back comes the smelly water again. Solution for me was to remove the plastic panel on the inside of the left front door and clean the plastic bottle. It is pretty easy to remove with 2 screws and easy to pull off the hoses. I filled is with a little clorox and water and swished it around for several minutes then drained and rinsed it. Then I filled it again with a little clorox (like an ounce or two max) and put the container back into the fridge. Once in the fridge, I ran fridge water through the front water dispenser for about a gallon or so. This flushed out the chlorine in the plastic container as well as the lines between the container and the spigot. After about a half hour of work, my great tasting water in the fridge is back again. I've checked the taste on this water for several weeks now and no plastic/odor/bad tasting water any more. Hope this helps.

    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

    Kenmore Elite side by side - Icemaker chute freezes up, no ice


    Hi,

    To make sure I am understanding you correctly, are you saying that after a normal fill, water continues to drip into the ice maker and freezes in the fill chute?? If yes, than replace the water valve.

    If not then:

    does the flap shut all the way? Sounds like you are drawing moisture from the chute. The flapper should seat so that no air is being drawn in. I have seen a number of these Kenmore where the pin and spring retainer has broken off from the dispensor housing causing this problem. They use to replace the whole freezer door because the dispensor housing is not a servicable part. They have now come out with a kit to address this problem. This is not a fun job for a first timer. You may want to contact Kenmore and inquire about the aforementioned. If this is your case, there is a good chance they will cover it.

    Goodluck,

    I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and...


    OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:
    12_17_2011_1_36_01_am.jpgIf it looks like this model, I have the service manual for it with all the testing procedures.If it doesn't, see if you can get a model number off the unit. They make about 4 different model for this unit.
    Happy Holidays!Richard

    Kenmore Elite Model: 106.5896.701 - Ice cube motor not turning


    If you are describing the ice dispensor motor then you will find it under the ice bucket. If I remember correctly there will be 2 1/4 inch nut screws about the 3rd shelf on the freezer door. You will have to look up at them. The white mold that the bucket sits on. This is inside the freezer door. Those motors burn out frequently because ice will get jammed in ice bucket or bucket will freeze up due to flapper on dispensor isnt sealing correctly. Then we humans will continue to push to dispense and it wont move and burn up the windings. If you can work upside down you can fix this.
