Ice cubes melting and then sticking together

I have a Kenmore 23.6 cu ft. fridge with a top freezer. It is about 16 years old. Lately, the ice cubes from the icemaker melts and then sticks together. We end up with one big chunk of ice instead of cubes. What could be the problem? Thank you.

If you have dispenser to get ice or water, there is a cover to it that opens and closes as you ask for ice. If that mechanism is not working it stays open all the time and causes your ice to melt because cold air scapes. You should be able to replace that yourself. Sears sells that part. It is not very expensive. There is a cover over the dispenser pannel. It should right behind it
If you Agur that suppose to turn the ice to dispense, that could burn up too because the agur can not turn all chunk of ice

Water seems to be leaking into the freezer before it reaches the cube maker. No water outside the refrigerator so I think the leak is where is in the back of the freezer wall before reaching the cube...


Actually your evaporator drain is clogged, take your freezer back panel off. At the bottom there is a drain hole, stick a flat head screwdriver and see if there is something blocking the drain hole. You will have to defrost your fridge first. Good luck!

Freezer area smells and ice cubes and butter taste off?


It sounds like the ice maker if equiped. Remove Ice bin and clean out,and try a lite spray of bleach or vinegar (don't mix) If the smell is still happening and comming from ice you may want to install a inline filter.

Ice sticks together


the ice cubes stick together because the water level in the tray is to high and the cubes can not be separated so turn the valve on the wall behind the unit closed some to lessen the amount of water in the tray

Our kenmore elite bottom freezer is making a loud humming noise. It shuts off when door is open..and continues when door is shut. Temperatures are fine, no error message, it rarely stops..like it is trying...


Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

Cleaned the freezer and reloaded...no hum..at least for now.

Kenmore bottom freezer died, fridge not cold either


Please keep in mind, I'm attempting to diagnose the problem without being there and with little information.
You are most likely going to have one of five problems.
  1. Condenser fan not turning (Fan under unit)
  2. Defrost problem (Heaters bad)
  3. Coils under unit dirty
  4. Defrost timer bad
  5. Bad compressor (Vary unlikely)
These are listed in order as to be the most likely to be the problem. I would check them in this order if I were called out on a service call with this problem.
. Respond back if you need me to walk you through checking any if these.
Please rate solution

FRIDG AREA LIGHT WILL NOT TURN OFF


this is a problem, there is a relay on the board that is sticking. Unscrew your lights or it will melt the display and possibly the liner. There is a fix available, contact Sears they should have a service bulletin out for it.

one thing to try first is make sure there is enough air flow in the freezer and that the airway between the freezer and refrigerator's is free and clear
