Customer Question
My Kenmore refrigerator is...

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud buzzing noise which stops when I open either door. Also, the water dispenser has stopped dispensing water.

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

About 3 yrs old. 106.51132213

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

Only if I have too
