Is it brand new if so keep pressing the lever, I have had it take minutes before the water arrives. There is a long stretch of coiled tubbing inside that the water has to pass through.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


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.

We bought a used but newer model White Westinghouse refrigerator; brought it home, plugged it in. We can hear the condenser motor running, but neither side is getting cold. There is an additional hose of...


Some fridges have an internal fan that sounds like the compressor. If the compressor is running and the fridge is any good the inside will quickly cool and the condenser will become warm. If the outside gets warm but the inside doesn't get cool it is possible the defrost heater is permanently switched on because of a fault.

If the compressor is running and nothing is happening the fridge has probably lost it's refrigerant gas. Moving fridges can upset them and it is unwise to switch on straight away - they really need to settle for at least 4 hours. Switching on too soon can damage a lubricant deprived compressor.

If you hook up the water to the fridge, that means you connected the water line to the 'Water Inlet Valve' of the machine. There should be a two wire harness connected to the water valve back. Look for that....

But please note following...

Some water valves in fridges are complicated with one harness for water dispenser line valve and another harness for ice maker water line.

Also seeing a disconnected wire harness does not mean it is for the water valve. May be most likely. But be careful sometime there are test wire harness for technicians to get power readings for components.

I own a side by side black-n-stainless fridge and I bought a kit for the water/ice despenser, installed it as per instructions but not getting any water in the ice maker or out of the water. The water is...


If its got a filter under the frig. just hook your water to the house water line. If not then put a filter in the cabnet next to your frig. Or in a handy place to get to. And you will have to hold your water lever for a long time till all the air gets out of the line. there is a extra long hose you must fill up in your frig side. It is used to keep cold water ready to drink.

hope this is helpfull

WATER DISPENSER NOT WORKING


It might be that you have a restriction at the water supply line serving the fridge. Check it for good flow (have bucket and towels handy!) If supply line is good, then move onto the fridge to check the water inlet valve(s). as newer models have 2 or 3 inlet valves, a main water valve for the entire unit, and possibly one each for the ice maker and water dispenser past the main inlet valve (solinoid).

You can check these by simply shutting off the main supply to the fridge from the house water line 1st, and then removing each water line from the supply side of the fridge and seeing if you have water flow from the house to the valve side. If you do, then reconnect the lines to the fridge valves and see if you can get water flowing to the other side of the solinoid/valve when you have someone try to get a glass of water from the water dispenser, etc.

It is possible that there is an obstruction in the lines, by not very likely. Normally it is a failed water valve(s) (solinoid) that causes low flow or complete loss of flow, especially if you've changed the fridge water filter or replaced it with the "cap" which eliminates filtering of the water.

It is that you'll likely have to replace at least one, maybe more, of the fridge inlet water valves. If you have the time, try to zero in on the failed one by bypassing each, one at a time, until you get water flow. That way, you'll only have to purchase just the replacement valve needed to get things working again.
