My ice maker on my kennmore model 106.56539400 fridge does not dispense water in the ice tray. I put a new filter on and that did not help. The drinking water works fine. I checked the water outlet in the freezer it was not frozen. If it is the water inlet valve how do I get to it to check ?

I have no water to the glass fill, but I do have water to the ice maker and it makes all the ice I need. What is wrong here and what parts do I need to replace.

I came home one day to find my icemaker was pouring water all over my freezer and consequently my kitchen floor. Any idea what caused that? We just shut it off and are using bag ice. Is there a part we need to replace or do we need to replace the entire unit?

Latest Questions

I've just replaced the older water valve and replaced it with the newer model. After cutting the older hoses, I attached all the proper hoses to the proper size hose fittings by squeezing them in snugly just as your video demonstrated. The problem is when I turn on the water valve, the water shoots out from the water dispenser up top. Any advance?
