Open Question

Just purchased a foreclosure home with a Kenmore side by side fridge with ice tray in door. When I turned water supply back on the fridge I got water to the drinking water dispenser but not to ice tray. Power to fridge was turned on the day before the water supply. Even though house had been drained and winterized do u think water was left in supply line that froze during the 24 hour period between powere and water being turned on OR what cld be the problem?

SOURCE: Nested Problem?

Marty, sounds like the refrigerator is not going in defrost cycle.There could be several factors causing the ice buildup. Symptoms of this are higher freezer and cold food temps If you could look around the door panel for a model number, Example:106.48062890 I may be able to help you solve the problem.
Causes could be defrost timer, defrost element, element wiring connections, etc. Let me know , Thanks, Sea Breeze

If there is a lot of water dripping and I guess there is since you had to turn the water off, you need to replace the dual solenoid valve to cure your problem. You did not post your model number so it is not possible for me to say if you have more than one valve assembly in your refrigerator. If you have 2 separate valve assemblies you will need to disconnect the lines one at a time to locate the correct valve to replace. I hope this helped you.

SOURCE: No ice or water from in-door dispenser

When you first hook water up to the refrigerator you have to fill a tank in the fridge. Open the water supply behind the ref. turn the control on the front of the ref to water and hold a glass under the spout as if you are filling a glass . You may have to wait 3-4 minutes forthe tank and lines to fill with water before you get any to come out into the glass. The water my be discolored at first so run a few glass full through before drinking . hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elite side by side

It would not hurt the motor as they are built to be exposed to some degree of moisture if the defrost does not work i would check and see if something is jamming the actual mech. up. In my ice dispenser i had stuff fall in from the shelf's and seized up the motor. Any how if the thaw does not work check out a motor at repairclinic.com (http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-106.53769202-%3d%3dc203i1057785&PartID=1057785)

Reset the ice maker back to making ice again


Turn the water supply off to the fridge, make sure the bailer wire (ice level bar) is in the down position. let the Ice maker run thru its cycle. When the cycle is complete the fingers that push out the cubes should all be down. Unplug the fridge for about 5 min. During this time turn the water supply back on. Plug the fridge back in and let it run thru a few cycles. This should reset the icemaker cycle. As a note: you should be able to hear the water turn on with a solid thump as the valve opens to fill the cube trays inside the icemaker.

I PURCHASED A WHIRLPOOL GS5VHAXWY FRIDGE AND THE ICE IS NOT COMING OUT OF THE DISPENSOR WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE ITEM


first thing to check is that you have water going on the inside of the ice maker tray simply stick your finger inside and see if there is water if there is no water you would then look at the water valve or the line in the back of your fridge if there is water or rather there is ice inside the tray you would want to remove the ice maker and run the tray under hot water then reinstall to test if this does not work then replace the ice maker hope this helps

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

Kenmore 5483300 side by side. no ice!


your fridge will have a dual water inlet valve, one for water and one to supply water to the ice maker. it could be that the solenoid on the valve that supplies water to the ice maker is not working.

Kenmore s/s f/f; ice dispenser working; water dispenser not


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it doesleave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there.

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

Side by side leaks out front door on freezer side


try checking the tube that water drains out , it could be plugged with crumbs or old partials of food and causing the problem, This has happened with my fridge at one time , affecting the defrost cycle of the freezer and dripping water out of the door, The tube was located under the crisper in the back of the inside of my fridge, Hope this solves your problem
