It sounds like your condenser fan might not be working, and causing your compressor to over heat. When you turn it down, the thermostat isn't demanding as much run time so the compressor isn't on as much, thus not overheating. Take off the back panel near the floor and see if it is turning or not. Also make sure the condenser coils underneath the frig are clean. If not them vacuum them out.
When it comes to the ice issue, you will need to be more specific. Where is the ice forming? And is it ice or frost?

    It sounds like your compressor relay might be weak and going out or your compressor is going out and it drawing too many amps, causing the relay to overload and start clicking.

    The ice sounds like you need to make sure the tube that goes from the back wall into the icemaker isn't coming out. Try pushing it back into the wall. Or it may have gone too far into the wall and needs to be pushe forward into the icemaker fill cup.

    Let me know how it goes.

Issue with Kenmore Refrigerator/Freezer

ok,1st check on fridge side toward upper back of the top and feel for air coming thru, and there is another one down possibly behind crisper .I had this same deal. Had to do total defrost,, put food in cooler,, theres two blower fans in these types of fridges,,one in the bottom back,, and one in the back of the frezzer,, I used an old hair dryer and let it blow warm to top interior of frezzer,, careful not to let any cords hang/drop in any water!!,ok once done dry out as much water as possible, turn fridge on set both controls to 4,when fridge kicks on do the feel test,, you may need to close the frezzer door, air should be felt near top inside of fridge,if so than shut fridge side and feel inside frezzer near bottom and air should be felt,, side-by-side need to circulate air from frezzer to fridge, then back to frezzer

Fridge not getting cold

if the frezzer is on top in this model and food is frozen it may be the ciculation fan motor.You can advance the defrost timer,located where the control knob is inside the frdge.with a phillips head screwdriver inserted into hole turn defrost timer it should make a clicking sound if this goes all the way around and the fan does not come on it is probablly burned out

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.

I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

you are probably getting an ice build up on the evaporator and the drain also blocked with ice. take back cover off freezer and melt any ice off with careful use of a hairdryer. make sure the drain at the bottom of evaporator if free by pouring a little water down it. if blocked with ice, free with hot water and parience. if fault reoccurs, you have a fault on defrost system
