We have a Kenmore refrigerator, model # 596.57542791, that has ice and water in the door. The water dispenser has been dripping for about a week. I t started with a slow drip maybe every 30 to 40 seconds.  Now it is dripping every 5 to 7 seconds.

It is connected to a reverse osmosis filter system but that has been checked out by Culligan and it is not the problem. Is there some other part in the fridge itself that could be the problem? The "Culligan Man" thought that there was not anything that could go out within the fridge. The usual culprit is the pump in the reverse osmosis system but it is fine.

Any suggestions before I have to call Sears?

Only thing that can cause that is a bad water/ice fill valve, (located in back down by compressor), the valve spring gets weak, something gets stuck in valve or seals in valve deterate.

Thanks so much. The pictures are very helpful also.

We have one more problem with this refrigerator that I can't find the part for.  There is a metal piece at the bottom of the fridge door that has a broken corner. I have figured out that it is a door stop. But sort of behind the stop is two white plastic pieces that attach with screws; on on the bottom of the fridge door and the bottom piece attaches on the metal bracket that the door "stands" in.  These two plastic pieces rub on top of each other when the door opens and closes. They seem to be round but are thicker than a washer or something like that.

The piece that screws onto the bottom of the door has cracked and lost a piece. I can't find it anywhere in the diagrams that came with our owner's manual. I called Sears parts and the lady couldn't find it either, but I'm not sure if she was understanding my descriptions either.

Any ideas?

Sears online shows the door closure as reference # 0034 in this breakdown, part number 12113202.

I just  wanted to thank Willie and Pegi for their help with our fridge problems. We got our parts and were able to fix them ourselves, which was a great accomplishment.  for us.  We are mechanically challenged! 

This site is so helpful.  I will be referring people when they have problems.

Thanks again for saving us a service call!
