Question and Answers

Q:

Both Water and Ice Stopped 10656669500 Kenmore Refrigerator

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Refrigerator, Model: 106.56669500. From reviewing the details on your model, if the dispenser stopped working completely, it could be a defective board but I suspect the freezer door switch may have failed. If the door switch contact fails, the dispenser will not work at all. To check the switch, first disconnect power to the refrigerator. Now pry the freezer door light switch out. It may be tricky but it will pop out. With the switch out, connect the black and red wires together and make sure they don't touch anything. Now reconnect power to the unit and activate the dispenser. If the dispenser works now, the switch will need to be replaced.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the refrigerator to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Q:

Why did my ice maker stop working?

A:

The ice maker can stop for various reasons:

  • The ice maker could be defective.
  • The water valve could be defective.
  • The fill tube could be frozen not allowing any water fill.
  • The optics receiver board may not have reset which won't allow voltage to the ice maker.
  • The freezer may not be cold enough.
  • There could be a loose or broken wire between the receiver and the ice maker or between the ice maker and the water valve.
A technician will have the proper equipment to make these checks. There is a quick diagnostic check you can make to see if the boards are working. I'm sending you the diagnostic chart. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.

Might be helpful, but the diagnostic chart image has been compressed so much that it cannot be read. Also, how can I check for supply tube being frozen?

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your refrigerator dispenser. When mold begins to grow, it is due to a moisture buildup in the chute. You can clear out the mold with a bleach and water solution, but it will keep coming back until the problem is fixed.  On this model there is a ice chute door hinge that will need to be replaced in order to keep this from happening. The images below will show you how to access these parts and how to replace them. As you disassemble the ice dispenser you can clean the individual parts. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I assumed that needing to replace the "ice chute door hinge" means buying a new part? Or do you mean that if I follow the replacement instructions that you attached, it will allow me to clean all the parts--even though I'm not actually replacing with new parts? Also, it's hard for me to see the images on the scanned documents, particularly on page 2... Is there any way you can post original PDFs so I can see them with more clarity? Thanks so much for your quick reply!

The images will show you how to take apart the dispenser. You can clean the parts as you go. However, the problem you are having with the mold is due to the door hinge allow moisture into the dispenser. You should replace the hinge to stop this, but that is up to you. As for the images, if you click on the image when you open it up, it will enlarge. If you are still having issues with them, please let me know and I will email them to you. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
