Most likely the=> 67005154 Dual Waater Control Valve
ice maker leaking after filling - 12_10_2012_6_08_23_pm.jpg

found on the rear of your refrigerator and down near the floor is becoming worn out and not closing all the way. Are the ice cubes also beginning to stick together? I need you to watch this problem to see if it becomes worse and gets stuck open allowing a lot of water into ice maker. The ice maker determines how much water flows to ice maker about 7 seconds time but if mechanically defective it will not close all the way even when off. I will stick with a solution but will meed you to respond, Thank You, Sea Breeze

    John, I have been suspecting the dual valve. The dripping does stop, but it is getting a little worse, ie dripping longer. We first noticed this when we got some big chunks out of the ice bin, and then figured out that the dripping water was welding cubes together. I will shut the water off, and replace the dual valve.

    You also can remove the water line going to ice maker from the dual water control valve. If water continues to seep out when off that will answer your question. Thanks for responding but I believe this is the best solution to your question. I have been wrong before but the valve is most likely the solution for this problem, Thanks JT

    The seepage stops 4 to 8 secs after fill goes off. I currently have the wire up so the ice maker will not make ice, and it does not seem to be leaking. Again, It only seems to leak during and after the filling of the tray. I have ordered a dual valve.

    I received and installed the dual water valve, and water still is dripping from the fill area of the ice amker while it is filling, and a few secs after fill shuts off. Any other ideas?

Defrost drain is clogged causing this problem. Clear the dfrost drain and pan from inside the freezer section by removeing the freezer back cover plate and you will see from there. No extra parts required just patience.

SOURCE: Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket

good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved

SOURCE: The Ice Maker is not making ice.

You should have two sides to the water control valve. One for the dispenser and one for the ice maker. Fill ice maker with tap water if it freezes and dumps then the water control valve is defective and will need replaced. If not we need to have a look at the thermostat in your ice maker. Sea Breeze

SOURCE: There is water leaking in the freezer. I imagine

my model is not exactly the same but check for this this anyway:
Take a flash light & check for ice in the back vent underneath the very bottom shelf in the freezer. If you see ice in there, completely defrost until the ice is gone & the plastic drip hole is unobstructed. The leak on mine was happening because that hole had frozen over & caused excess water to flow into the bottom of the freezer & out the bottom of the door instead of through that hole.

Lsc27914st/00 ice maker will not fill the tray, prior to that is the water leaked down the walls of the freezer


Hello KYMBERLY;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There is a white plastic fill tube that runs from the back of your refrigerator into your freezer. This fill tube in the freezer section is open at the top. This tube goes into the ice maker fill cup on the right hand side of your ice maker. Opening and closing the freezer door - warm air gets in, forms condensate, and freezes. So, your fill tube and/or your fill tube is blocked with ice.

Remove the extra storage shelf in front of the ice maker. Using a hair dryer defrost the ice in the fill cup and fill tube. This is located on the right hand side of you icemaker.

Why is my Uline ice maker filling with water not ice ?


At first I wanted to say it has to fill with water to make ice but I know you mean the ice bin is filling with water. You either have an issue with the water control valve leaking or your timer isn't working properly. Listen for the water to flow and when it seems to shut off look at the tray fill spout and see if it actually stopped dripping. If it continues to drip (not flow normally) then the valve is leaking. If it isn't dripping but the water in the ice tray over flowed, then the issue is either with the timer or the adjustment is incorrect.

My stand alone kitchen aid icemaker is filling up with water. It is making ice but it keeps filling up with water as well. I had a plumber come out last week because the ice maker was leaking. He fixed...


The drains on items like this get a sludgy residue built up in the drains. Make sure its clear. Empty the bin and you should see the drain port run a small amount of hot water in it. Not a lot as it could leak from the drain tray if it has one. If the drain is clear then it could be a nice maker issue where it's dumping too much water in the tray to harvest. Excess would spill over.

Water leaking from Icemaker fill tube near the back wall


It probably is not the water valve. More likely it is the ice maker itself. Nothing else in the machine controls the flow of water to the ice maker except the ice maker itself. It is recommended that both the ice maker and the water valve needs to be replaced when trouble such as this.

either there is ice formed inside the fill tube where the water goes into the ice maker and spraying all over the place when the ice maker tries to fill, or the ice maker mold is cracked letting it leak out.

Ice maker will not fill with water.


You mean " Why The Water Doesn't Fill the Tray in Kenmore Ice Maker?"
Am i right to your question? Well, Kenmore brand refrigerators often have an ice maker that uses the water supply to create ice inside the freezer compartment. Some models have an ice dispenser on the freezer door for easy access, and others simply create ice and deposit it into a tray inside the freezer. While most ice makers should work well with basic maintenance and care, issues may occasionally arise. One such problem is if the water does not fill the tray to create ice inside the ice maker. Resolving this issue may be possible through some troubleshooting efforts.

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer.

2 Fill a turkey baster with hot water.

3 Spray hot water from the turkey baster into the tube at the back of the ice maker, which may be frozen or clogged.

4 Repeat spraying water into the tube until the blockage or frost is removed.

5 Replace the ice bin into the unit.
Please let me know if this help you.
Thanks for using FixYa

The ice make stopped working. There is ice in the water feed tube. The ice maker is full of ice, but it is not dispensing. Ice in the storage bin was frozen together into blocks.


The icemaker in it's operation hits a microswitch to turn on a warmer in the aluminum tray that aids in extracting the ice by the rotating vanes. It may be that that part of your icemaker has failed.

Try this for a solution first. Remove all of the ice from the bin. Using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the tray and the fill tube. Be sure to warm all of the switches behind the plastic front cap in case those switches are frozen. Let the ice maker fill again and see if you have made ice. Often splashed water will freeze the rotating vanes and will not let the ice maker rotate through it's complete cycle.

My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray


Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray


Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.

Ice Maker Overflowing


i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module
