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.

Kenmore 795 leaking water behind ice maker


I would first check the hose that brings the water from the pipes in the house up into the icemaker make sure that's not leaking. Then I would check all of your connections, Making sure they are good and tight and that there's no holes either in the copper line or the poly plastic line. If all of that checks out fine and you have no leaks there then I would investigate the icemaker.

Why does my fill tube for my ice maker continue to drip and freeze up?


Usually a leaking water valve can cause this. This can be caused by low or high water pressure or just a leaking valve. Remove the tube from the valve and if water continues to drip from the valve it is bad or the water pressure is wrong. If it does not drip, leave the water line disconnected from the valve and dispense some water from the dispenser to see if it leaks. If it does the water is bleeding over and the valve is bad. If the valve is not leaking at all insure the fill tube that goes through the box and supplies water to the ice maker is seated properly and sealed off with permagum for instance. Also make sure the freezer section is not too cold ie -15 or -20 as this could cause issues.

The inside freezer side of my refrigarator is leaking and makes no ice


From what you have described it sounds as if the water line connection is not solid and secure to the ice maker. If it is leaking water and freezing surrounding items even more that would need to be addressed by a professional if you cannot find any issues yourself. You can try to turn the ice maker off, if it is equipped with a shut off arm or switch, and then look for any issues. You may also want to clear the freezer of items in that area and watch where the leak and new ice form to pinpoint the faulty area(s). Please let me know if you find anything additional out or if you need more help. Good luck!

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

Water is freezing in the supply line for the ice maker


This usually means you have a weeping water valve. The water valve doesn't completely shut down after filling the icemaker. This deposits a staedy flow of water which freezes and accumulates in the tube, eventually blocking it off. You would need to replace the water valve which is located at the rear of the refrigerstor. One othe thing to check would be the water supply to the refrig. If the water dispenser is working fine then that isn't an issue. However, if that is flowing slowly you would need to replace the saddle valve which is tapping into your house water supply.

Ice maker leaks inside freezer


check the water discharge hose which fills the ice maker after ice is dumped into the bin. the line is located in most cases at one end of the ice maker and allows the water to flow into a funnel like device above the ice maker mold. the hose has the diameter of a penny, it is probably misaligned with the ice maker itself/
