Customer Question
I have a side...

I have a side by side kenmore refrigerator freezer with a water and ice dispenser on the door. I changed the filter twice ran the water for 5 minutes and the water and ice cubes still have a very bad taste Can this problem be fixed for a reasonable cost?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The Kenmore is 14 years old Model # (I have to get it) be back in a minute #10653504300

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No I just moved into this apt. condo and am in my 80's

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't have too much money to spend on a repair that might not be able to be done--and spend $90 for a service call

I just want to know if the problem I initially entered regarding my Kenmore refrigerator is able to be fixed for a nominal fee
I've been going in circles on 'sears web site and am not happy about that
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

Yes the issue can be fixed !

but all of the plastic tubing inside the unit will need to be replaced.

But the parts are not cheap and then you will have to pay for a service company to come in and remove the old tubing and install the new tubing.

My estimate for parts and labor will be $200 -300 .

I think you best bet is to replace the refrigerator and sell this one to some one to recoop some of your money.

If you have any questions just reply back to me!
