Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

Kenmore Refrig with Filters water and ice dispenser- water is dripping when not in use, no flow when activated

From what I can tell, we may need a new "icemaker and water dispenser water inlet valve   4318046  ?  but HOW to install?? and do you think this is what we need??  Started with occassional drip.. now dripping a glass an hour, HELPPPPPPPPPPP     or at least how to turn off so we can leave the house without flood.  We can't get the refrig pulled all the way out to see the back.  Installed in the wall with only front access

 

Ice and dispensing working fine..  Water drips whether ice arm is lifted

or down.  We installed new filter but that didn't affect this problem.

    I have a Kenmore side by side model 363.9512781 and my water dispenser is continually dripping into the tray outside the door in front. I think I need a new water inlet valve. Are these difficult to replace? The part is only about $40. It looks like you have to pull the refrigerator out and take off a panel at the bottom.

    This is a brand new purchase. There should be some way to adjust the flow and its cutoff valve. Please help.

Water dispenser will not work Just tried to get water from the dispenser.I heard a clicking when I pushed the lever in with a glass,but no water.I loosened the water line at the compression fitting at...


The ice works off of a different solenoid than the water dispensor . So , I would suggest this action : At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

My freezer deparment does not make ice cubes. no water enters the ice cube maker


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?


It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front

Ge Profile bottom freezer, french door refrig, water filter


Just replace GE's filter with a standard inline filter that hooks to 1/4" water line tubing. Sounds like their filter has no flow rate either...

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
