Why does my fill tube for my ice maker continue to drip and freeze up?


Usually a leaking water valve can cause this. This can be caused by low or high water pressure or just a leaking valve. Remove the tube from the valve and if water continues to drip from the valve it is bad or the water pressure is wrong. If it does not drip, leave the water line disconnected from the valve and dispense some water from the dispenser to see if it leaks. If it does the water is bleeding over and the valve is bad. If the valve is not leaking at all insure the fill tube that goes through the box and supplies water to the ice maker is seated properly and sealed off with permagum for instance. Also make sure the freezer section is not too cold ie -15 or -20 as this could cause issues.

Hi and thanks for choosing FixYa I am Kelly.

Ot took me a bit to sort out your model number started with 106 for a complete model number of
106.57562792.

You already more or less stated what the remedy is. in this starement:
It is like the sensor value does not know when to stop sending water to the tray

What happens during the life of refrigerator is the inlet water valve fails. This caused the ice in the water fill tube because it was a very slow drip so the wter froze in the tube. It also causes the ice tray to overfill because it is allowing water to bypass when it is supposed to be shut off. (Common problem after unit is 4 - 7 years old)

Your inlet water valve needs to be replaced PN: 2182106
Net search: 2182106
http://www.google.com/search?q=2182106&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbo=u&tbm=shop&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wf

Sears parts direct lists it under your model number for $70.92. As you can see from the net search... you can get them MUCH cheaper.
When you change this inlet water valve... save yourself all the headaches... Change ONE line at a time and One connector at a time. Hook up the main water supply LAST.

This will fix your current problem.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water dispensers don't work like a faucet. When depressed a circuit is made electrically to the water valve in the bottom back of the machine. Water is, if working normally, either 100% on or 100% off.
If you ask for water, and the supply is normal, but fails to stop except for dribble, then the dual valve in the back of the machine is not sealing properly, and a new valve will have to be fitted.

I have a leaky spigot what can I do


If the spigot means the end of the water tube in the water dispenser, and it steadily drips even if the dispenser is not used for 10 minutes or so - replace the water valve. If the dispenser drips water mostly wright after you used it - you might have some air bubbles in the refrigerator water tubing.

My water dispenser does not work. I unscrewed the hose at the bottom of the door and there is water pressure there. Where should I be looking for the problem?


If pressure there it could mean anything may be possible. I need the Sears Model Number. If the water valve on rear of refrigerator does not open then water will not exit the dispenser. Sometimes water is frozen in the dispenser water container located inside the fresh food. Sears Numbers Look Like this (231.564897) for example
compartment. And sometimes it is the dispenser controls. I will need your Kenmore Model Number to tell you the part you need and to help you better. Thank You, Sea Breeze

Condensation on the outside of the ice/water dispenser on freezer side.


Turn the water supply off to the back of refrigerator and take the line feeding the supply to the water control valves off and then put the line into a pan to purge any trash that may have collected before entering control valve. It is very possible that a piece of rust or a piece of plastic is holding the control valve open slightly. The continuous dripping of the chilled water is what I suspect is causing the condensate. On bottom of the refrigerator Sears uses a number like this example. You may find the number behind the cold food section door near floor. I will need that to help you better. Example 215.22897
Sears always gives their models a different number than the same models that GE, Whirlpool, Westinghouse and on and on. When you are able to see if the valve is stuck and need to clean or replace it we will need your model like in the example to find the correct part, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Model #106.50544001


It's time to replace the dual water inlet valve (the part the water line connects to). A bit of sediment or other fine object can get in the seat or the material itself can deteriorate and allow a tiny amount of water to pass up to the icemaker.

Water Dispenser Drips


Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.

Water dripping from the water dispenser on freezer


If the water is dripping from the dispenser tube, you need a water valve. The valve is not shutting off completely. Check to make sure water is not dripping from ice chute. If the chute door doesn't seal off you will get moisture there and it will also frost up the ice chute.
