Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Kenmore side by side fridge #596.55669500 is leaking through the water outlet in the door. Not constantly but often enough to be a problem. What could cause this and is it something I can repair myself?

If its dripping water mostly after using Changing the water solenoid in the back will fix the problem, Thats the blue valve on the back that is connected to the water supply line.
If its turning on intermittently and dispensing water you may have to replace the control board for the dispenser.
Its either hard water causing the fill valve(Solenoid) to not close all the way or an electrical current opening the valve .

We have a Kenmore Elite 795 fridge. It is constantly leaking water from the bottom right corner of the unit onto the floor. There always seems to be a build up of ice at the bottom of the unit.


Usually the result of CONDENSATION due to eithr bad door seals allowing air and moister in to condensate. or a plugged or clogged evaporator drain line which causes water to back up and freeze or leak out the lowest point the bottom?

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,

No water or ice from older kenmore side by side


You must pull fridge out the water valve is in the bottom back. Sounds like the valve is stuck open. You can Google your model# to find appliance parts to order new valve.

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?


The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.
