Kenmore fridge model 795.51022011 will only dispense about a cup of water after changing filter


Recommended Posts

Hi all, have looked but cannot find the answer to this question on the forum. I already tried posting this but I don't think I put the model # in the title so it's probably not going to be answered, at least for a while. Anyway, we have a Kenmore side-by-side fridge (model # 795.51022011 ) and it stopped dispensing water one day. It had been about 6 months since we changed the filter, so we put a new filter in. The fridge dispensed about a glass of water, then stopped??

We made sure the doors were closed & there was power. **When we remove the filters, water does come out of where the filter plugs into - (so we know it's getting water), We replaced the filter after checking it over. **Incidentally, I don't think it is supposed to keep leaking water with the filter removed. A little, yeah, but not continual

In any even. we once again inserted the new filter and got the same results (dispenses about a glass of water then nothing). We do hear a slight humming when we push the glass against the little paddle to get the water to come out.. Just to be sure, we installed a another water filter & got the same results. We know it was working with the same brand water filter before, and we have changed it out 2 more times.

We know it is getting water up to the dispenser because we can get about a glass of water there before it stops dispensing. **Note, the ice dispenser broke (not repaired) a few months after the warranty ended, but the water has been dispensing for years after that. Anyone have any ideas?

Is ice maker making ice?

First thing is to check water pressure going into refrigerator.

Did you replace the water inlet valve? you should be able to run the water with out a filter I believe it bypasses itself.
