Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Kenmore side by side, model #56541, 56551. First it started leaking water in front on the floor, then the lever would not turn off the ice maker. Now it will not make any ice at all.

SOURCE: water leaking from bottom of refriderator

Is this a self defrost refrig. if it is then it might be doing that, which then you might want to look for the drain that is suppose to drain into this pan. It might be missing the pan try that, let us know thanks.

SOURCE: hotpoint csx22bc 21.7 cu. ft. leaking water on freezer side

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

SOURCE: leaking water on floor only happens when making ice

I wonder if you just notice the noise now because the leak has you more aware? First things first. Lift up the arm on the ice maker (a few hours prior to attempting service) to stop it's operation. You need to roll the unit forward to give you access to the back. You'll see a plastic tube that runs from the bottom compartment (water valve) to the ice maker fill tube. Lower the arm of the ice maker and observe the plastic tube for the location of the leak. The most likely spot would be at the top. A hose clamp can be put on the fill tube after making sure the plastic supply tube is completely inserted into the fill tube. The fill tube is the piece that goes through the rear bulkhead and delivers the water to the icemaker. It may be neccessary to remove the icemaker to thaw out the fill tube using a hair dryer.

Whirlpool God 26cu ft French Door Refrigerator Model # GI6FDRXXY02 is leaking water on the kitchen floor. The water appears to be leaking in the front & water is leaking on both sides. Has anyone ha


There is usually a condensation pan at the bottom of a fridge. This can fill with water and over flow, causing what is happening. Also, the ice maker could be causing the problem because the water connections can leak at the back where they connect to the house water system.

Water freezing on floor of freezer and leaking on to floor in front of freezer?


I have narrowed my similar problem (with a KitchenAid) down to a leak in the ice maker refill line. To test if this is your problem also, scrape the ice out, then turn off your ice maker (raise the lever as if it is full) and see if ice no longer forms down at the bottom over the next few days.

Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer


You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

No water or ice from older kenmore side by side


You must pull fridge out the water valve is in the bottom back. Sounds like the valve is stuck open. You can Google your model# to find appliance parts to order new valve.
