I have a kenmore coldspot model 106.53532300 and the water will not dispense from the door the icemaker is working just can't get water from the door...really miss it! Can anyone tell me what to do?!...

Hello Ray;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Ok, It may have been the water bottle. But, you have an old unit.
So, lets check it out once more.

1.) After time, from the heat, the plastic tubing for both your water lines to the water dispenser and ice maker will dry rot and crack.
Check: Pull your unit out. Have someone draw a glass of water from the water dispenser, while observing in the back both the water supply valve and the larger plastic tubing going to the water dispenser. Is there a leak when pressurized?
2.) Wait for when your ice maker fills and observe the smaller plastic tubing. Does it leak under pressure.

3.) Drain Pan - This too will crack over time do to heat. Pull your unit out so you can get behind it. Remove the lower back cover.. There are about 8 screws easily removed. Observe the drain tube from the under body of your refrigerator and the black drain pan where it empties. Observe around the drain pan. Are there and brown or dark stains on the floor? If so, then you have a cracked drain pan.
Repair: Unplug the refrigerator. The compressor and surrounding copper tubing prevent you from replacing the pan. When I was in the field, I would take duct tape and seal the cracked area. Then, I would cover the duct tape and surrounding area with a high temp silicone adhesive.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106.70182000 that is leaking water from the freezer into the refrigerator. Any ideas? Thanks!


That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain, then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center

Good luck

I hope this helps you to stop that leak,

I have a leak inside my Kenmore Coldspot Model # 106 72104100. It is not coming from the icemaker.

If the water filter is old the seals will leak into the evaporative tray overflowing it. Replace the filter or give it a turn to bypass.

Kenmore coldspot model 106: top freezer leaks water slowly into botton refrigerator. how do I repair it?

Have you tried adjusting the freezer temperature to a higher level? This worked for my Kenmore. It will take a couple of days to quit leaking.

We have a 10 year old Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator (it looks like model # 590 9990). It is leaking water from the freezer door. We turned off the ice maker to see if that would stop the leak but so far-...

look for all/any drain holes and blow out/syringe with clorine bleach ,then check door seals for any air leaks.water in fridge is mainly condensation from warm food/replacement air when you open door.

I know this is strange but here goes. I have a Kenmore Coldspot side by side Refrigerator. This past summer, it was leaking water out the front freezer door. We turned off the water and called a repair...

Turn off the fridge. Remove the freezer bins in the bottom. Defrost the drain line with a hair dryer.It is on the lower back portion of the freezer. Break up the ice on the freezer floor and dispose of it.
Discard any old freezer food. Change out the water supply line with a copper line if you are using a plastic line.

Kenmore Coldspot not making ice

sounds like the flap that u can usually hear once the ice has stoppped coming out it sounds like a pop or thud ...what happens is the magnet goes bad and keeps the ice maker constantly open to the outside air causing ice melting and massive ice cubes.....usually a costly repair...check and lemme know
