Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Elite Side by Side Refrig. not dispensing water. 106.53604202

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
I am sorry to hear that the dispenser isn't providing you any water, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.
The humming sound you hear from hitting the paddle tells us that the valve is being energized but not opening to allow the water to come through. Since this is a dual water inlet valve, the icemaker and dispenser are operated on separate valves. Over time, one or both valves can stick open or closed due to minerals in the water and operation. I suspect that replacing the water valve will solve the issue for you.
For convenience, I have included a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the PartsDirect page to view and purchase the valve.

A:

The link for a previous answer that Aashe provided in the previous response should show the information that you need to help you diagnose the dispenser motor failure. That motor is a DC (Direct Current) motor. I don't think that you will be able to turn that motor by hand easily.

Be sure that you follow electrical safety guidelines when using that technical information. Unplug the refrigerator when accessing internal components.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

My ice dispenser is not working. The motor is turning but it will not dispense. There seems to be a lot of play with the ice auger. Should I replace the ice auger, the nylon spacers or the cover that the auger passes through? I believe there is enough play that the couplings seem to disengage and rocks the ice bin. Please help!

I posted an image that shows how to disassemble the motor on the dispenser. I recommend that you physically examine the components to detemine which parts need to be replaced. It is difficult to anticipate which parts are causing your problem without physically examining them. If you need more help, reply with additional details based on your examination of the components.

Thank you for your question. I understand how frustrating it can be to not have your ice maker working properly.

If there is no water making its way to the ice maker as it sounds, I would suggest checking the fill tube above the ice maker to make sure it is not frozen. If it is, you can thaw it out with a hair dryer or a warm cloth. If that was not frozen, it could be a faulty water valve or a problem with the interlock switch on the door.

On the ice maker itself, is there a red light flashing? If so, how often does it flash.

I have disconnected both water lines to the ice maker and the cold water from the eater relays.. No water out of either water relay. Also when I close the freezer door interlock the red light on the ice maker 0n/off is a steady RED.

A:

Can you hear the water valve make a humming noise when you press the paddle for water? If not, and you are comfortable accessing the wiring, you can jump power directly to the water valve from the interlock switch to test the water valve.

The black wire on the interlock switch can be jumpered to the violet wire on the water valve. The valve should hum and open. If it doesn't the valve is bad.

A:

I do not understand what you mean by "the paddle". I do not hear any humming. Would both water valves fail at once? I will check out the wiring access. I assume that I have to remove the interlock switch to be able to get at the black wire.

A:

The paddle is on the door dispenser. If you press it you should hear the water valve humming. If you don't then there is a problem with the water valve. It seems that you have multiple issues with your refrigerator as it would be very odd to have both valves fail at the same time.

Yes, you will need to remove the interlock switch to get at the wiring. The valve I am currently talking about jumping power to is the water valve for the dispenser, not the ice maker valve.

A:

The black wire will have 120VAC going to it so you should disconnect power first before completing the jumper connection and yes, it would be better to pull the plug off the pcb board first to be cautious.
