Q:

Sears Model 253.57682790 Refrigerator

A:

When an appliance goes out I usually see money going out the window, either in repair cost, or replacement. Managemylife.com can take the mystery out of the repair. I found this expert answer that should help. I attached the link below. You should change your filter every six months and sooner if you have hard water. That can mess with your products performance.

Thank you for your question. I know it can be disappointing when the ice and water dispenser stops working. Yes, you are correct about the water flow. The water enters the filter and from there it flows back to the water valve, where it�s separated between the icemaker and water dispenser. Usually, when there is no water flow to both water and icemaker, the water valve will be at fault and needs to be replaced. However, if there is water flow to the filter housing but nothing coming out, it could be a defective filter housing or the filter could be clogged. Now, there needs to be a filter installed in the filter housing to get water flow out of it. If you would prefer to use it without a filter, there is a bypass # 242069602 that can be used in place of the filter. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Scott, thank you for responding. In reading previous answers and posts, I saw a response that this model did not need a bypass. The parts list shows 2 solenoids, #218698900 Valve-water inlet, dual solenoid, 115V and #218658000 Valve-water filter, dual solenoid, 115V w/nut. There is also #218696700 Heater-water filter. I am a bit confused by how the solenoid to the water filter works, as it appears to be working. Water to the filter should come through the valve water inlet for either the ice maker or the water dispenser. The one that should separate the ice maker from the water dispenser should be the one after the filter. My problem is I do not have a schematic of how the water flows from inlet to filter to ice maker or dispenser. If you know of a place where I can find a water flow schematic, it would be a great help. Again, thank you for your help. Regards, Glenn

Scott, thank you for the schematic. It now makes perfect sense why the solenoid is probably defective. This will be the second solenoid. I will order the solenoid, and I will let you know the result. Regards, Glenn

Scott, I have replaced the solenoid and I am still experiencing the same problem. The water tube elbow is dripping. I also replaced the filter. The schematic you sent shows the water path, but the parts list I have shows another solenoid, Pos. No 141# Part No 218658000 Description Valve-water filter, dual solenoid, 115V w/nut. The schematic I have says # = Functional Parts. Do I have more than one solenoid? Th only other thing that I can think of is that the line is frozen. I could see water running from the filter (back of refrigerator) but it stopped as soon as the air went out of the line. I would think the water line goes from the filter through the solenoid and into the freezer door, and then would go to the icemaker and the cold water dispenser. I do get a slight dribble out of the water dispenser, but that is it. Kind of bummed out after changing the valve and filter and getting the same symptoms. Regards, Glenn

A:

Glenn, it's possible that the line could be frozen. A good check will be to disconnect the water line under the freezer door. Place the end of the line from under the cabinet into a pitcher and then activate the dispenser. If water still just barely comes out, it will indicate that either the reservoir behind the crispers inside the fridge is frozen or the valve is still not opening. If the reservoir is frozen a hair dryer can be used to thaw it out. Just be careful not to get it too hot. If the reservoir is ok and since the valve has been replaced, the most likely problem will be with the diodes that connect to the valve. This can be a difficult check and a technician would be needed to check and replace the diodes if they have failed. I hope this will help you.

A:

Scott, I believe I have a second solenoid in this refrigerator. The solenoid I replaced has only 2 solenoids, a green and a yellow coil. There are only 2 outputs, which I believe are the filter in and out to the tank and the tank out to the second solenoid. The second solenoid would be the icemaker or the water dispenser. My problem is where is the second solenoid located? It is referenced in P58T0012 POS. NO 141# Part NO 218658000 Description Valve-water filter, dual solenoid, 115V, w/nut. I will inspect the tank, but since the icemaker and the dispenser don't work, I suspect this second solenoid. Regards, Glenn

A:

Glenn, the first valve with the water hose type connection is the inlet valve and should be located on the bottom right side of the cabinet. The second valve # 218658000 (see image) should be located on the opposite side of the cabinet in the back. The water lines from the inlet valve connect to the filter. From the filter, the water line connects to the inlet on the second valve and then is separated to the dispenser and icemaker. You should be able to follow the water tube from the icemaker to the second valve. I hope this will help you.

A:

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the water leak. This type of problem is usually caused by a defective water valve. It's possible there could be a short in the wiring or the dispenser but the most likely problem will be with the valve # 218698900. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . A technician would be needed to check this for a short. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . I hope this will help you.
