Here is where the confusion begins. When Kenmore says their model number, it is different than OEM numbers or original equipment manufacture's number's. Here is the deal with Sears when it comes to their model numbers. Sears buys all their products from someone else like Whirlpool, Maytag, GE and the list goes on and on. Then Sears calls their model number Kenmore Model Number=> Kenmore Model Number Locator's and the first three numbers are the models maker or who originally made the appliance Click Here for examples=> Kenmore Appliance Model Number Prefix's or Click=> Here once you have the correct Kenmore Model Number once you have that then you can find the parts for your dispenser. Your number will look like this for example only 363.235698 then go to Parts Direct or Repair Clinic and enter the correct Kenmore appliance model number and then search dispenser parts for that model numbers parts number. Hope I made this simple enough so if you need assistance I will be here to help you find that one small part you are searching for, Thanks, for understanding, Sea Breeze Once you find that 363.235698 example you will be well on your way!

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).

Fridge water filter replaced now flows very, very slow


Hi .. first I would try and eliminate the filter as the problem. Remove the filter and try the water again. If the water flows strong, then the filter is the problem. If the water stills sputters and is low flow, then there is a partial blockage in the internal tubing , or a problem with the supply. If you roll the fridge out to get at the suppl. you could shut it off and disconnect the supply tube from the fridge, then turn the water on slowly to check the flow at the supply. If the flow is good there , then the blockage is internal.

Hey...how long does it take to fill and flush a new water dispensing system?


My samsung fridge takes a couple of mins or less.You need to flush the filter first, i.e connect the water to the filter and flush through before connecting to the fridge. When you start to flush filter water will be grey/black ( filter are full of carbon), flush till water comes clear. connect to fridge and you should be set up.
Please rate me if this helps

Kenmore refrigerator model# 70192001 has funny chemical tasting ice


Do you have a water filter, either inline or inside the fridge side? There is nothing in the water lines or valves within the fridge that will contribute to chemical taste. Unless it's just been connected and the line was dirty. It's either your water supply, and if so install a quality inline water filter will help. Some times if the fridge filter is clogged the water flow to the ice maker is restricted and little bubbles get trapped in the ice and they taste off. You should have crystal clear ice. If not get a filter.

Filtered Water tastes "off"


Could be something foreign in the water line on the fridge side...or somewhere in the ice maker/ water dispenser inside the fridge......when it tastes stale....maybe there is something maybe mold or something that is part of the plastic ????
I usually add an in-line filter to my water line before it reaches the fridge so that 99% of the elements are trapped before it gets to the fridge. My original filter is still good. Maybe someone needs to inspect the ice maker with a a bright light and an inspection mirror to see if there is any thing that looks suspicious....this is only a suggestion but leaving the line disconnected for so long could even cause something like a small insect to crawl inside the line...
