Is it possible that if the Water Inlet Valve is failing that i would have low flow for water dispenser and ice maker, thus, making less Ice and slow flow in dispenser?
Answer Hello Ray,
Yes, this is possible, but not probable since these are two water valves made into an assembly. It is more probable that you have low water pressure to the unit or a crimped water line. It could also be a self tapping saddle valve stopping up with sedimentation and mineral deposits.
I checked on here and it said I had to replace the Water Inlet valve, I bought the one below; however, I'm still having the same issue. The water works but the ice maker does not. I have waited over a day and still no ice. Can I send this back?
Answer Hello Rob,
You can call in for a return authorization number anytime within the 365 days from the original date of receipt of the part. You do need to make sure the fill tube is not frozen since this is caused by a bad water valve and replacing the water valve will not clear the fill tube. It has to be cleared with a hair dryer so the icemaker can fill with water.
I have a Kenmore side by side refridgerator and the problem is that recently I noticed that the water dispenser is putting out warm water the stream is strong but the water is warm the ice maker works good.is there some type of bypass valve that redirects the water from cooling
You will want to pull the unit out and check to make sure that the condenser fan is working. Another sign of the fan not working would be the center divider between the doors being extremely hot to the touch. Also check to make sure that the condenser coils which can be reached from the front under the kickplate are clean. If the condenser fan is not running you will need to replace the fan.
My refrigerator just started making a noise when I use the water dispenser.
If the noise is a hammering type of noise then you will want to make sure that the water filter is good and check to make sure that it is all the way in. If the filter is new and is fully seated and making that noise and the water line was purged then the issue would most likely be the water valve causing the noise.
