I have a Kenmore side by side refriderator that is leaking water from underneath. It does have a ice maker in it. and i did not see any water leaking from the connections. any help is appreciated.
I have a Kenmore side-by-side about 7 years old with an ice-maker, model 106.59592990. Every few days, it leaks water onto the floor. I pulled it out and saw no water on any connections, and the drip pan seems intact, and there's not much room for it to move around. The leak doesn't seem related to using the ice-maker or water dispenser. I'm stumped: can anyone help? Thanks.
Is this a self defrost refrig. if it is then it might be doing that, which then you might want to look for the drain that is suppose to drain into this pan. It might be missing the pan try that, let us know thanks.

With the arm up in the ice tray, the water solenoid valve should be closed. When the arm drops, that tells the ice maker to open the water solenoid valve to fill the ice maker tray. It sound like the leak is at the inlet side of the water solenoid valve. On some models its not easy to get to, but follow the water line to it. Hope this is it for you. Good luck.
The drain in the freezer side (behind back lower panel) needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
there are 2 pipes going from the pump at the bottom of your unit ... 1 to the ice maker and the other to the filter for water. make sure the pip for the ice make is tight in the connector of the valve ... let me know...
I have Kenmore Coldspot refreidgerator and am having a problem with water pooling inside the fridge at the bottom underneath the drawers (mostly the left side). Where is the water coming from and it formed a thin ice. Thanks
This problem is most likely the water control valve on rear of refrigerator. If your ice maker is empty pour tap water inside it and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then the water control valve. If nothing happens the the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. Thanks, Sea Breeze
There is a shroud at the back of the freeezer. (Mine was a GE) but under the shroud is the evaporator coils and also a heating element to defrost the coils during the defrost cycles. Mine had the gutter underneath misaligned and the water went into the freezer and froze instead of going down the drain. I thought it was a ice maker leak until we found that. The weird thing is we had the refrigerator for about 6 years before it started leaking like that.
It has worked fine for about a year since that "fix"
There is normally a small shutoff valve installed in the water line servicing the ice maker; you might shut off the flow of water until you locate the problem.
Most drip pans can be slid out but it would be wise to lower the level with sponges or similar to avoid any more spillage than you already have.
If the 'knob' is centered it is probably the release knob for the grill, behind which is of course the drip pan.
Before damning the ice maker (although they are among the most unreliable devices known to man), I would pull the fridge out and examine the fitting where the water line is attached.
Any lime buildup or green corrosion around the fitting would imply that the leak is external to the cabinet and the leaked water is only accidentally making it to the drip pan.
If you haven't been getting blocks of ice in the cube storage bin, the shutoff valve is apparently working so you may get lucky locating the source of the leak.
your fridge has a water trap pan underneath it to catch the water from the drain line when your fridge automatic defrost.
either the pan is not in place proper or the pan may not be underneath, period. or pan could be stopped up/need cleaning. or if pan is made of plastic, it could be cracked.
it is located at the bottom of fridge where you see something loos like a grilled vent. remove that bottom piece to get to the drain pan.(it just slides out!!) good luck & hope i was helpful.
