Kenmore refrigerator 106.72206201 - accumulating ice and water

I have a Kenmore refrigerator 106.72206201 made in 2003. It is now accumulating ice at the top of the refrigerator compartment. Also, water is dripping onto the top shelves and then freezing. What's up with this and how can I fix it?

Probably a clogged drain line in the freezer. Unplug it for 2 days and leave it open. Reset controls to 3 and C or factory settings clean the coils on the bottom outside with a vacuum and a brush and restart the fridge.

Where is ice-detecting sensor located in the bottom freezer refrigerator? No ice/water in door, only in freezer (Kenmore)?


On the side of the icemaker, there is a wire bale or arm that is pushed up by the accumulating ice that shuts off the icemaker.

Our kenmore top freezer is leaking (dripping water) inside the refrigerator section from around the dial area. Can fill up a small bowl in about 12 to 24 hours.


Most likely your defrost water drain is plugged. You will have to pull the panels off the freezer, to expose the evaporator. the defrost water drains by gravity thru a hole in the pan under the evaporator. Clear it of debris and or ice, check for any accumulated ice. reassemble. Remember to turn off power before attempting repair and be careful not to bend or puncture any refrigeration tubing

Low water at door. When you push the door water lever, a normal stream of water comes out for half a second and then it reduces to a small stream. Takes for ever to use. The ice seems to be a "hollow"...


Your problem may be a clogged water filter. Change the water filter and recheck the dispenser water flow, and allow new ice to accumulate in the ice tray.

Freezer is icing up. Unit is about 2 yrs old


You need to check out the back of the freezer. At the current status, it may be locked with ice. Have it defrosted or just have it melted away. Clean the coils and the entire unit. Either the drains were blocked by food debris or dirt causing water to accumulate and ice to form or the thermistor has been iced or is faulty or too much ice accumulated in the unit's coils.

Water accumulates inside the refrigerator, Kenmore, Mod. 71194100


You get to it from the freezer. Remove the back wall in the freezer and you will see it there. Unclog it with some wire or check to see if it has ice over it.

My kenmore is leaking water once a day .


You didn't say from where. Usually twice a day your de-ice heating coils come on and melt any ice that has accumulated. this water usually runs down the back of the ref. and collects in a small pan under the ref. Someime ice form around the hole that the water drains down through to go into the small pan. so then when the deicer comes on the water just runs down the bottom of the ref and onto the floor. My Kenmore does the same thing. Remove everything from the bottom of the Freezer look in the back at the bottom see if hole is clogged with ice. Remove ice then pour hot water down hole check occasionally.

Water accumulating in top shelf of refrigerator


Get yourself a thermeter and see what the tempeature is in the freezer. It should be "0" degrees or colder. If it is hanging around 30 degrees +/- you may have a compressor or control problem. You may have a drain tube clogged that takes the water out of the freezer. I am not familar with your model but many freezers are similar.
