Question and Answers


water dispenser stopped working


Check the temperature in your refrigerator. If you have some items in the bottom back portion of the refrigerator that are freezing, then the water line or the coiled up water reservoir in the refrigerator could be frozen. In this situation, you will need to defrost the water line inside the refrigerator. Blow a heat gun (or hair dryer) on the water line using a low heat setting.

There is also a chance that the water line that goes through the freezer is door is frozen. If you find no problems with the water line or reservoir in the refrigerator, I recommend that you shut off the water supply and then disconnect the water line at the bottom of the freezer door. Use a shallow pan to catch water that will from the water line when it is disconnected. With that water line disconnected and the end of the supply line in the shallow pan, press the lever to dispense water and see if water flows from the water line at the bottom of the freezer door. If it does, then your problem is likely limited to a frozen water line that goes through the freezer door to the dispenser. Defrosting that line will fix this problem. If the line freezes up again, you will likely need to have a service technician repair this problem. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

Since you are hearing the buzz of the dispenser water valve and the ice maker is still working, you could have a bad water valve assembly (part WR57X10032) if the water line is not frozen. If you want to fix this type of problem yourself, you can try replacing that component. There is a chance that you have a wiring failure or other problem that is preventing the water valve from opening properly or getting the proper voltage.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website if needed.

Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator and shut off the water supply before accessing internal components.
