Kenmore water hose

The hose that was attached to the bottom of freezer got cut so we directly hooked it to our water line and now it leaks like crazy and in my freezer water just drips.

If it is not connected to the freezer unit - it cannot make ice.. Ice is frozen water - you have connected a separate line that seems to have nothing to do with the fridge unit.

What size water line do I run for my kenmore all freezer ice maker


If it's a new in-wall run to it, standard 1/2" is fine. From the wall to the freezer you can do 3/8" or 1/2"
An ice maker doesn't use a lot of water so you can consider it a low demand system. If you're connecting from wall to freezer most hardware stores have premade hoses; just like the water hoses for a washer or a toilet.

Kenmore refrigerator with a bottom freezer leaks water on floor


Hello Wayne,
You already mentioned the reason for the excess water. When the freezer automatically defrosts itself once every 24 hours the melted water drains down through a tube down to a water pan at the bottom of the refrigerator where it sits and supposedly evaporated by the fan back into the atmosphere. However in your case the excessive dust is preventing the evaporation phase to occur by the fan. You need to vacuum as much of the dust as possible and your problem will disappear.
Good Luck

My model AM-50bae ice machine has water in the storage bin,what can I do?


check the bottom of the bin for a drain spout. The drain line may be clogged allowing the water to build-up in the bottom.

If the water is coming down from the ice machine itself, you will need to open up the machine and look inside. Check to ensure the cube guides have not come out of place, that the sump is not overflowing with water, and that there are no loose, leaking, disconnected, or busted hoses.

Never hooked up one green line running bottom to top with plastic nuts . one valve at bottom looks like a tire valve stem. is this the inlet water line hookup


Do not hook water to the "tire valve stem"! That is probably a freon access valve. Hooking water to that will ruin the refrigeration system.

Kenmore Ice Maker ice freezes solid in catcher - I think there may be a leak in the foremost line because icicles form on that side. I have extra line - is it complicated to replace?


The solenoid valve that lets the water from the supply line when the ice maker calls for it is leaking ,it's located in the back of the fridge at the bottom behind the cover where the water line goes in.It's very easy to replace (before do anything remember to turn off the water).

LEAKS WATER WHERE WATER LINE GOES INTO FREEZER.


An easier fix is to redo the connection. Turn off the tap the supplies water to refrigerator, should be on your cold water line under the sink. Remove not on the solenoid valve(blue valve) slide the nut further up the vinyl tubing cut the tubing above the old connection. push the tubing into valve and tighten nut finger tight. turn the tap on a little and check for leaks at the solenoid. If no leaks open tap all the way. If leak tighten nut a little more only until leak stops. then turn tap on all the way.

How to hook up water line from sink to icemaker.


You have to put a T between the cold water valve and the faucet, then run a plastic or copper line to the refrigerator(the size could vary from 1/4' to 3/8", you have to look at the water valve in the bottom back of the refrigerator).

Defroster leaks


you have a cloged evap. drain. the rf is defrosting properly but with the drain be clogged the water has to go somewhere which is generally in the crisper draws on top and bottom models. two way to clear up this issue. turn rf OFF for at least 48 to 72 hrs. to allow the drain to de-ice or take matters into your own hands and take the back panel off of the freezer and using boiling hot water pour it down the evap. drain tube until it flows like you just flushed a tiolet

Leakage and warm sides


The outsides should will be warm.  This is normal because the condensor lines run thru the cabinet from about half way up the sides and over the top.  Which is why the you shouldn't have anything stacked on top of the freezer and enough room on the sides of it for air flow.  As far as the water leak, tell me exactly where you see the water and does the bottom of the freezer (inside) have a sheet of ice on it.  If there is ice there then the drain behind the bottom panel in the freezer is frozen over and will have to be thawed out.  Let me know what you find.  If you have further questions I may need the entire model # on the sticker inside the freezer.

Kenmore upright freezer


You should check the drain hose inside underneath the freezer.This is done at the back down below. Mine was looped too high and water could not get out. I took the loop off that was holding the hose and now water can drain away without freezing. You can pour warm water down the drain hole to melt the ice in the tube if you remove the grate covering it inside the freezer. I have read that several Kenmore upright freezer
owners have the same problem. I was astonished that this was the problem and I had put up with it for too long, defrosting the freezer every 2-3 months!.Give it a try!
