Kenmore Elite Side by Side Refrigerator Water line failure

The water line going up in to the back of the refrigerator has aged and is now extremely brittle and breaks frequently. Is it practical to replace this line? How many other customers have had this issue.

    The water line is within the walls of the refrigerator. How am I supposed to disconnect it to pull it out?

Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

Restriction in the line. Check the water line to make sure it's not pinched or kinked.
Often times too the water line from the refrigerator is connected to the cold water line of the house with a self tapping valve. Turn the valve off and back on a couple times to clear any restrictions.
If everything is ok with the water line to the refrigerator then you will need to replace the water inlet valve behind the refrigerator.

Water line to Kenmore refigerator is brown


Some tubes turn brown gradually with age. This is normal. But if yours is not made of that material (not sure what its called), then it could be that the pipe is dirty. If this be the case, it is definitely better to get the line replaced, as it is definitely a health concern. I would recommend getting a filter fitted to the line as well, just as a precaution..

I have a Kenmore model 106 9555710 SxS - no wate through door


check inside the bottom of the refrigerator for water, the water line goes thru the back of the refrigerator and it may have cracked and leaking inside instead of going to the dispenser.
if not then water is most likely frozen in the line going thru the back of the refrigerator. look behind the pans in the refrigerator and there should be a coil of clear plastic water line, this is the reservoir that chills the water for the dispenser. sometimes it will freeze up if the refrigerator is very cold.

I resolved the problem on my Kenmore Elite model 106.55616400 by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.
