A:

I do not have access to the outside dimensions. From the model number I can tell you this is a 21 cubic foot side by side refrigerator. You can measure the outside of the cabinet. You will need at least 2 inches of clearance on the sides and back.

Q:

Kenmore Frig. model 106.59129801 1yr old film pieces coming from water despenser

A:

Water from the refrigerator filter is expected to be clear. I can see how you would not want to drink the water from the dispenser. While you wait for the expert answer about permanent removal, you can check the links below if you like. They may provide some answers for you on this issue. Hope this helps!

A:

The film pieces that you are describing are likely harmless cysts in the internal water supply system of the refrigerator. Before you remove the reservoir, I recommend that you try to eliminate the cysts by removing the water filter and run some water through the water dispenser daily for a week. The filter housing has an automatic bypass so that the water system will work properly without the filter installed. I assume that you are on a city water supply system that is chlorinated. The chlorine in the city water will eliminate the cysts. After a week of running water through the system daily, you will probably not see the while slimy film pieces in the water. You can replace the water filter. Try to run some water through the water dispenser daily. If the condition returns, you will need to pull the filter out and run chlorinated water through the refrigerator again.

If the film pieces keep returning frequently, you could eliminate the water tank in the back of the refrigerator. This refrigerator has a tank (shown as key 12 in the image below) instead of the coiled up tubing for a reservoir. If you intend to eliminate this component, you will need to connect the inlet and outlet tubing with a run of water tubing and some fittings. I don't recommend that you alter the refrigerator in this way but it could be done.

There is a chance that the film pieces are calcium or hard salts from the drinking water supply. As noted in the previous answers provided by Barbara H. in the first response, installing a water softener would eliminate this type of problem.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will 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 .

A:

If the problem is due to cysts, then you will normally need to "shock" the well with chlorine. The basic procedure involves adding a gallon of liquid chlorine bleach to the well. It will need to sit unused for 24 hours. You would then need to flush water from the outside faucets for about 1 hour until the chorine is not significantly evident. You would need to prepare for this shock treatment by storing up some water for use in flushing toilets and other uses. You can flush some of the chlorinated water through the refrigerator and let it sit there the 24 hours while the system is being shocked. Flush the water system in the refrigerator and the whole house properly before using the water for drinking or cooking. I recommend that you consult a professional regarding this process. This general procedure should help you understand the concept. This would likely eliminate the cysts. If the white flakes are calcium, then a water softener should eliminate the flakes. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
