Check to make sure to dispenser tubes not frozen up in refrigerator section or frozen in the door.

I have but may not have done this for long enough. I was concerned it was something to do with a switch since I am hearing no clicking sound...as if the door was open and I was trying to get water. I really appreciate your direction. I try to fix on my own as best I can...hoping i can here too.

I took the bottom panel off...unconnected the tube and water was coming out...seems no freeze from that direction but i cant be sure from the freezer door. It would be great if it was just a freeze issue but since i dont hear that click im thinking its another issue...thanks

I'm still not sure if you did this from the front of the refrigerator and disconnected the line were it runs up into the door or from the back of the refrigerator.

If you disconnected the line from the front of the refrigerator just before it runs up into the door and had water pressure there when you activated the dispenser then the line is frozen in the door.

I did from the front. I had water coming out but no preasure...just a flow. Should I use the hair dryer on the tubes inside the refrig.

Should I not hear a click when I push the arm of the dispenser.

thanks

Also I tried looking up your model number so I could see exactly what you have, but 55539400 is not a good model number.

Sears/Kenmore model number start with three digits have a dot and end with eight digits.

For example: 123.12345678

The full model number can be found on the model/serial number tag that is often located inside the refrigerator sections.

I'm guess the model number you posted, 55539400 is just the last eight digits.
