Does the freezer still work? Sounds like a bad defroster system. With the defroster coil still "on". Depending on age, warranty or change in your living situation it may be time to consider a lightly used replacement. If the icemaker is in the freezer section there is a combined problem. Your food may also be "melted" or will be soon.

Gi5fsaxvy french door fridge ice maker has frozen ice blocking it. However, can't get into it to melt the ice. Looks like a tab on the left holds it in and it should slide out, but it does not. Must be...


This diagram shows two screws on the top and there is one on the bottom. Loosen the screws and ice maker should lift off. You may just want to use a hairdryer to melt it and your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply is connected may be leaking letting the water drip into the ice maker and freezing when it gets there. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fW1010173-00005.png

Kenmore icemaker


It sounds like the icemaker is making hollow cubes , and the unfrozen water in the cubes , after dumping , freezes and causes the ice shells to stick togather . This is a sign of " not enough water going into the icemaker " . Replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .

Ice melts water drips out of icemaker & freezes in a column


If your model is doing that I would consider looking at the defrost components. Look inside back of freezer for frost building a thin layer on the rear wall. If yes then unplug and remove the rear panel in back of freezer and defrost with a hair dryer. You have and air circulation problem or a defrost problem. Sounds like it's trying to defrost but we need to have a look at the evaporator coils in the rear behind that cover. First let me know what you find and we will go from there, Thanks Sea breeze

My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

Ice built up in the freezer compartment


We have a possible defrost problem or the seal around your doors are pulling moist air air inside. I believe now would be a good time to unplug the refrigerator and check the coils and defrost system. Inside the fresh food compartment you have a defrost timer that I want you to turn clockwise slowly until the compressor stops. Leave it there for about 25 minutes until refrigerator either restarts or don't if it does not then turn it a little more until it starts. The part number for the timer is 482493 Also below is a picture and #6 is the defrost timer. It should be reachable through a small hole in the bottom of the control panel. If everythig is well there we will check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. After you check these things let me know the results. Sea Breeze

Water coming out of the freezer compartment into main unit


I believe the drain is blocked behind the panel wall inside freezer. You will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove panel and inspect drain at bottom of evaporator. There is a tray with a drain hole on the low end. Also check around area that water enter from back of refrigerator to ice maker. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Top Mount Refridgerator is Leaking


the problem lies behind the freezer back wall panel, remove the panel, the ground (green) wire on the top left corner and the icemaker

all the ice build up under the evaperator will have to be removed, a good hair drier works well, direct the air at the center hole in the bottom of the metal panel all the ice out of the center hole will need to be melted out to be a success it will take a little time. you can pour some water down the hole and if you hear it going into the bottom drain pan then the tube is clear of ice.

Leak from icemaker shorts electricity in house


It sounds like the ice in the bin is warming up enough to melt for some reason then re-freeze. Check your door gasket seal and also the ice chute door flapper seal to make sure warm room air isn't being drawn into the ice bin area. Also make sure the freezer area is VERY cold like 0 degrees F or lower, that will keep the ice hard and help stop the ice from having a liquid surface film from opening and closing the freezer door too often (then freezing again). The water down the back is from the ice cubes melting a little then re-freezing. Also, is the frige working OK? Does the compressor turn on and off normally? I ask because sometimes the compress start device is failing and the refer can warm up quite a bit while the compressor is trying to start up... eventually the compressor will start but by then the ice has melted a little then the compressor runs for a long time to bring the temps down again. Monitoring with a thermometer every hour will show if the temps are lowering in the freezer section too much.
