Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a kenmore coldspot side by side model 106.53582300. We have just hooked it up the water but no water seems to be coming out. We haven't put a filter in yet, is there a trigger of some sort that gets tapped in order for the water to actually come out?

Some fridges will not work without a filter. Additionally, it may take a while of dispensing water before water actually flows completely through the system. Most fridges use a small solenoid that snaps open and closed to allow water to flow and stop. The solenoid is usually loud enough to hear without too much difficulty. The ice maker (if installed) has a solenoid for it, too. Both solenoids are often very close to each other at the bottom of the backside (on the rear) of the fridge. This should run automatically as long as the ice detection arm is in the lowered position.

Also, make sure that the water supply line was not kinked when slipping the fridge into its resting place. Make sure the wheels or supports haven't come to rest on top of the line (crushing it) either. Make sure the water valve at the point of attachment to the home's cold water pipe is on. Some of the piercing type valves work a little differently than you may expect. Check the instructions on the package for the valve to make sure it's really on.

I hope this points you in the right direction & good luck.

Kenmore Coldspot 106.53592300 ice maker valve does not seem to be working. I have replaced the valves but there does not seem to be power to the ice maker water valve


Go to page 18 on the PDF at the link here=> http://appliance911seabreeze.com/whirlpool_icemaker_troubleshooting.pdf
and use a jumper wire to cause the water valve (Water Valve - L to V) to come on if the water valve is good. Here is an Ice Maker for your model=> HERE and a water control valve for your model HERE

Kenmore Coldspot Model 51572200 is leaking water all over the floor


On the bottom rear of the refrigerator as you are looking at it from behind the left side where the water is feeding into there should be a double valve. 1 is for the water and the other to the icemaker. Many times that valve won't shut off, however the switch that dispenses the water is evidentially bad and needs to be checked if it is stuck open.

Kenmore coldspot water dispenser stopped working. Ice maker works. What could be possibly wrong?


On the rear of your refrigerator there is a dual water control valve. One side for ice maker and one side for water dispenser. I believe your side for the water dispenser has failed and they come as a set. Send the Kenmore model number and I will find you one. The number will look like this, 326.256489 for example only. Found near the bottom of the fresh food section door. Thanks, Sea Breeze

2002 Kenmore coldspot 51262103 model number Just hooked it up to water and it runs slow and the ice maker is blinking red.


Not sure if I resolved the issue, but after defrosting my icemaker, with a blow dryer for a second time. It seems to be working fine again.

Is it possible maybe there was some ice build up and every time it added more water for the ice cubes the water level was to high making it impossible for the auger to push the ice thru?

Kenmore coldspot side by side refrigerator - freezer fine. other


Good to see you put your model number down correctly. Do the lights come on inside when you open door? I noticed your refrigerator has a control board inside the fresh food section behind the control panel I want you to unplug the refrigerator and examine that board for burn marks or loose solder connections on both Sides. Then let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea breeze My email is appliancepsrtsse@yahoo.com Web Site http://servicepartstec.blogspot.com/ Part Number for Control board is 8201528
