Ice Maker & Water Dispenser not working on Kenmore Elite Refrigerator.
I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator (Model 253.74223700) that has been nothing but trouble. I recently had to spend $300 to have the motor and fan replaced in the freezer because the refrigerator section was not cooling at all. Now, in less than three weeks after that repair, the ice maker and water dispenser are not working (it feels like that water is not getting to these units). Can any one shed some light as to what might be the problem?

I understand that your ice dispenser is not properly working, which can definitely be frustrating. An ice dispenser is definitely something we depend on and when it begins to malfunction it can be a huge inconvenience.

I know that you have had many problems with this refrigerator, and I can see how frustrating that must be. If both the ice maker and water dispenser are not getting water, then the water inlet valve (Key # 55, see image below) has failed. This will need to be replaced in order for these to work. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
My thanks to you both, Dezeray S and Anne J. The suggestion by Anne seems most reasonable. I will work on that, thank you.
