The defrost drain line is stopped up with ice. It must be defrosted manually until all the ice is gone.

check for ice buildup in the freezer floor,if so then the drain hole for the defrost pan is plugged up and when it defrosts the water from this leaks down into the refrige,you need to remove rear inner wall panel inside freezer and take a small wire and rat out the drain hole under the evaporator coil that goes to the bottom of the unit

Water is dripping from the top of refrig from what appears to be a control unit of some type.. The freezer and icemaker work.


If the water is dripping into the ref. from the freezser chances are you have a clogged drain where the water runs out of when the machine goes into defrost. Take everything out of the freezer and look at the back of the machine and see if you have ice built up. The vents that ru from the freezer to the ref. are loacted in the middle and chances are ice has gotten into them and is thawing and running into the fridge. Unplug the machine, take the back freezer wall off and clear the ice away. I use a screwdriver to tap into the drain hole to clear the ice but you can use hot water as well. Once you see water draining properly down the hole, put it back together and your good to go.

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig (no ice maker) Freezer works fine. The refrigerator side is not cooling. I have cleaned out the vent between the freezer and the refrigerator section by defrosting the...


Check to make sure the evap fan is running.
IF so, then let unit defrost, then turn back on, check for air comming thru top of refrig vent, if air moving ok, then let run for a few days and see if refrig warms again, if so then check for frost build up on back wall of inside freezer, if so, you have a defrost problem. With a defrost problem, defrost heater may be bad, defrost timer/electronic control may be defective. Either way, in most cases it is a defrost problem unless you don't have air moving and fan is running in this case you have a damper door problem inside air duct in refrig.

We have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106 70102000 with the water and ice maker, it is now leaking inside the fridge itself and we have turned the water off to the ice maker and dispenser. What is causing the...


It is probably your defrost cycle causing this. Obviously if you shut the water line off then it is not coming from there so there is only 1 other place it could be. Every 8, 10, or 12 hours depending on you defrost timer the refrigerator will defrost itself.......the frost melts into water and drains into a pan under the fridge. If the drain is plugged then it will just run into the refrigerator. If you have a freezer on top model then just remove the back wall inside the freezer, it will be a few 1/4 inch screws....If you have an icemaker then remove that too, it will be held on with 3 screws. Just look behind that wall and you will probably see ice at the bottom.....defrost the ice and pour a cup or 2 of water into the drain to make sure it is unclogged. If it is still plugged up then you have to find the clog....either in the back of the fridge behind the lower cover or in the refrig compartment near the back of the roof.

I have a Whirlpool refrige. side by side and the ice maker has stopped working. The infrared light keeps blinking. I have unplugged it a couple of times as well as turned the infrared off. Any advice?


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig

I have a Kenmore refrig./ model# 363.9741714


The problem is actually not the ice maker itself. The problem is the electric solenoid valve in the rear bottom of refrigerator. If you follow the water line on the back of the unit down to the bottom and replace the valve that it is connected to then your problem will be solved. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.

Water leaking inside refrig below ice maker


Hi

Most times this is a plugged defrost drain system. The defrost heater in the freezer section melts the frost and changes it to water, this water is suppose to flow down a drain system. If this drain system is restricted or plugged the water will leak inside the refrigerator. The drain system starts in the freezer section with a tray built under the evaporator coil. The water is funneled through a small hose into a cup in the top middle of the fresh food section ( not on all models, but this is the most common way ), from there, the water is directed out the back wall to a drain hose that runs down the back of the refrigerator into a condensing tray. The heat created under the fridge makes the water evaporate and disappear. Some of the cups ( in the top back of the fresh food section ) can be removed for cleaning. A turkey baster can be used to help clean out the drain system. Fill the baster with hot water and "blast" it into the drain hose to help flush it out. A piece of wire or pipe cleaner can also be pushed into the drain hoses to help clean then out. On a S x S style of fridge the drain system is in the bottom back of the freezer section and often you will have to remove the evaporator cover to access the drain hole. You can clean this out in the same manner as previously mentioned, but because of the water leaking into the freezer instead of the fresh food section you will have to remove the ice build up to clean out the drain system. For some reason Whirlpool has found a need to "hide" the drain hose inside the walls now ( Whirlpool makes many of the Kenmore branded refrigerators ) on there top freezer refrigerators. This makes accessing the drain hose to flush it out more difficult, no cup inside the fresh food section, no hose down the outside back wall and the only access is inside the freezer section behind the back false wall and under the evaporator coils.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Water is freezing in the supply line for the ice maker


This usually means you have a weeping water valve. The water valve doesn't completely shut down after filling the icemaker. This deposits a staedy flow of water which freezes and accumulates in the tube, eventually blocking it off. You would need to replace the water valve which is located at the rear of the refrigerstor. One othe thing to check would be the water supply to the refrig. If the water dispenser is working fine then that isn't an issue. However, if that is flowing slowly you would need to replace the saddle valve which is tapping into your house water supply.
