Thanks. The model number is 253.57184600, serial number 4A26815650. I tried to change the water filter but I cannot twist it off. Also, yesterday the water was flowing but I could feel that it was sluggish, slow and a thinner trickle. Now, nothing.

Thank you for the model number. I know it can be irritating when the water dispenser stops working. If the icemaker is still working, the filter is ok. It filters both the icemaker and dispenser. Based on the last information, this would seem to be a valve problem. The valve # 241734301 is located behind the refrigerator where the water supply line connects. I'm attaching a picture of how the water connections on this valve work. Before replacing this valve, maker sure the power has been disconnected and the water supply turned off. It is however, also possible that a diode may have failed. A technician will be required to make this check. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I have a Kenmore side by side and my water dispensor has also stopped working but the icemaker and lights work. It's model number is 106.56659500 with a manufacturer date of 4/2005. Could this diode be my problem as well? Thanks

Q:

Why won't the icemaker fill with water?

A:

If you were not getting water before replacing the water valve from the dispenser either, the problem could be with the icemaker or the diode. To check the icemaker, will require jumping the harness connector. First disconnect the power from the unit. Remove the 3 screws holding the icemaker in place and it will drop down, so you can get to the harness. Now using a well insulated jumper, place it between the black and yellow wires. Now reconnect the power and water should flow to the icemaker. If water does flow, the icemaker # 240352411 will need to be replaced. If no water flows and since the water valve has been replaced, it only leaves the diode # 5303918287. This is a difficult kit to replace and I recommend having a tech replace it. Now, it is also possible that when the jumper is in place, if nothing at all happens, it could be another problem, maybe a broken wire or the actuator switch could be defective but it would be rare. 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 .

Safety Notice: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
