It is possible that the tray itself has a crack in it. The icicles tend to make me beleive that you have a cracked tray because ice accumulates in the form of a cicle by consistantly dripping, running downward and over time the freezing occures . You might take food coloring and mix with water. Pour this mixture into yhe icemaker tray with the unit off and let it sit. If the tray is leaking the food coloring will let you know, if no leaks then it has too much water being allowed into the unit or too much water pressure. Good Luck

Have a Kenmore Elite Side by Side and there is water running down the side of the fridge which appears to be coming from the water filter. Already changed it twice.


Did you flush the system after changing the filter? Air can cause water to leak if it not flushed after each filter change. It takes about 6 to 7 minutes to get all the air flushed out. I hope that helps...

After changing the water filter, the ice maker is not working. The water dispenser is working properly.


You may need to replace the dual water control valve due to only the water dispenser side of the water control valve being the only side that works. What is the model number of your Kenmore refrigerator? Kenmore model numbers look like this=> 321.235689 as an example. An example of the water control valve if your model number was 321.235689 is part number=> 12001414 Water Inlet Valve

Don't use this example as the correct part. Look around the fresh food section door frame for your correct model number, Thanks

Temperature


If this unit has a control it would be located on the outer left side in the lower right hand corner. There would be a dial, the higher the number the cooler the temperature. Many of these chest freezers did not have an adjustable control.

Kenmore hotspot ice gets stuck same spot


if the cubes are small the water valve may be bad. Also pop the cover off and see if there is a plastic tab laying loose in the cover . It should have 2 holding the center plastic gear on if only one is in the center the ice maker is bad. Also make sure to change your filter ever 6 to 8 months if you have one this will stop other problems.

Kenmore ice maker problem


the problem is an unlevel icemaker to prove this do you see little droplets of water freezing from the icemaker or a remote possibilty is do you have to an R/O system and have you change the filter if unit has one.
