I had the same problem and discovered that the water control valve was not shutting off completely between cycles. The water seeping through the valve was freezing in the water inlet tube. I replaced the water control valve for the icemaker and solved the problem.

Water is pouring from the ice maker on Kenmore side by side, model # 106.56662500


Hello,

The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.

On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

Have small commercial kenmore ice maker-model 106 89583700. Replaced pump-now no ice is forming. Cleaning light stays on-won't go off. Any suggestions?


Water Inlet Valve

Your icemaker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simply thaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer.

An icemaker's water inlet valve has a filtering screen to block minerals and other debris from entering into your ice cubes. It is possible that the water inlet valve's screen is blocked, and not allowing any water through to make ice. Clean out any built up debris you find. You should be able to pop the screen out of place with a screwdriver and then put it back in place with the screwdriver again once it is cleaned.

Alternatively, the water inlet valve itself may have become defective. You will have to test it. If the test proves the valve is defective, replace it.

if you need more info post it and I'll see if I can locate more

My Kenmore refrigerators (model #79177990) ice


Ice inlet tube may be frozen up inside of Fridge. Thaw it out with a hair blower. Shut of water supply and disconnect the water line that goes into the back. Use a flexable item at the connection to see if will go all the way through to the icemaker. I used a zip tie.

If you still don't have water going to the icemaker, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at bottom back right of your Fridge. Easy to Do.

Water may be dripping into the ice bin. If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Also the water can be diverted from the ice mold by ice blocking the fill tube if the water inlet valve is leaking.

Icicle are forming around icemaker port inside of


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Kenmore 10670187000 Refrigerator. freezer filling with water/ice


You pull it out from inside the freezer but I would try melting any ice that may be stopping it up first with a hairdryer. The water inlet valve on the back of fridge is probably leaking and when the water gets to to fill tube it freezes and partially blocks the tube causing it to spray out. Disconnect the line coming out of the water inlet valve to see if it has a slow leak. You may need to replace the valve.
