Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

5 posts in this topic

I cannot seem to unlock my water/ice dispensor. It makes Ice. No H2O.

 

Can I get a service manual for a Kenmore Elite 106.56699501?

 

Thanks! :thanks:

Need appliance parts? Call 877-803-7957 now!

from the Owner's Manual:

The Dispenser Lock
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to the ice maker, or to the dispenser light.

It simply deactivates the dispenser levers.

The ice and water dispensers will not work.


Style 1: Press the LOCK button to lock the dispenser.

Press the UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.


Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the dispenser.

Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to unlock the dispenser.

It's difficult to cross Kenmore model numbers over to their OEM equivalent.  However, I was able to find the tech sheet for your unit and posted it in the Pot Luck Supper ==> http://appliantology.org/files/file/558-kenmore-refrigerator-10656699501-wiring-sheet-2313239/
