Question about Refrigerators
The ice maker on my Kenmore side by side is having issues. it continues to leak water which freezes inside the freezer compartment, and is clogging up the ice dispensing area of the dispenser as well
The ice maker is designed to add water at the end of the harvest cycle. The time frame is normally 7 seconds.
Dump the ice out of the bucket, and turn the ice maker off. Wait one hour.
Then turn the ice maker on and watch the complete cycle.
See if all the water is entering the ice maker cavity and for no longer than 7 seconds. If the timing exceeds 7 seconds, some of the Kenmore ice makers have a time adjustment. Snap off the front cover and adjust if it is that style.
If it exceeds this time frame, it could be either the water valve in the rear refusing to shut off on time, or the ice maker sending incorrect timing to the valve.Uusually the water valve.
As well, the ice maker well could be cracked causing, water to leak out of the bottom.
If you have erratic water pressure to the house or YOU ARE ON WELL WATER,
then this problems can be chronic and difficult if not impossible to totally resolve.

Your icemaker could be over filling. Your fill tube into the mold could be misaligned. Check both of these issues.
