Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

After replacing broken actuator, water, ice and light dont work when all 3 did before.

Kenmore side by side refrigerator 253.5569940N I just replaced the water actuator and in the process the ribbon cable became disconnected from the front panel. I reattached it with the silver metal side towards the circuit board. Now its like its not getting power - ice, water and light do not work - Whats wrong? I then tried with the cable facing the opposite direction and it still didn't work. Is there a manual that shows the direction of the ribbon cable? Is there a reset button somewhere?

SOURCE: remove faceplate in door of a kenmore frig.

If you look at the bottom of the facial plate, underneath. There are two slots to insert a flat screw driver. You should be able to access everything once you take that off. Good luck

I have a kenmore coldspot side by side water comes out dispenser but there is no water flow up to ice maker,also just replaced dual water celanoid


Hello, so you just replaced the water inlet valve correct? Here is a video on how to test the icemaker by removing the cover of the icemaker and connecting the L to the V water should immediatley come from the water inlet valve to the ice tray. If it did not and you heard the water valve actuate then there would be an issue with the icemaker in the unit. click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlYCJr9dc3E if you have any further questions message me back Thanks

Kenmore side by side: ice maker works...ice


Probably a broken plastic tube from the solenoid valve to the water outlet tube. It will stay dry until you try to get water then it may take a few days to dry out.

Good Luck,

Kenmore side by side makes no ice


the water line coming into the freezer may be iced up. or the motor that spins the ice "ejector" arm may be stuck. try spinning it manually (just dont force it).

Broken water actuator


Hi this is tech crazy
the solution to the problem is

You should be able to replace this part yourself. Follow these steps to replace the water actuator:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the drip tray (Key 23 in the image below) from the bottom of the dispenser.
  3. Remove the screws (Key 43) from the bottom of the dispenser module cover (Key 4). NOTE: You model may not have screws at the bottom of the dispenser cover. If not, push down on the top of the dispenser cover and pry out on the bottom of the cover with a flat tip screw driver to remove it.
  4. Pull to dispenser module cover up to release the top clips and remove this cover and set it aside.
  5. Remove the screws (Key 17) that are on each side of the dispenser module (Key 8).
  6. Carefully pull the dispenser module out slightly from the door. It will have wires attached. Pay attention to how the water tube and the ice door assembly are positioned. Pull this module out far enough to remove and replace your water actuator (Key 24).
Reverse the above process for reassembly.

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING Kenmore cold Spot model# 106.55536400


Most common problem is a broken ice maker module.  Should also replace ice maker thermostat when changing the module.  Make sure fill tube isn't frozen first. If you take the ice maker out pull off the plastic cover and in the center of the wheel that kind of looks like a gear there are two little plastic studs.  If one is broke or they are pressed together then the module is bad. Make sure to replace the thermostat along with some silicone grease because a bad thermostat is what causes the module to break.
