Model 253. 54362409 boards get power but water and ice wont dispense

check the fill silonoid on the back of the frig where the water line connets to the unit.. that is the solinoid
sounds like it is clogged up.. usally happens after a few years with hard water or well water. if that fixes it try putting a inline filter before the frig to keep it from happing again.

Water reservoir around compressor full and overflowing Kenmore 253

During very humid conditions you will get this problem many times due to door on refrigerator being opened much more than normal and maybe gaskets are not as pliable as they once were. Just be happy you have this problem instead of defrost circuit not working at all as that is a very costly alternative. Just empty and check weekly.

Inital fill will not stop

Look for white or yelloed plastic float hanging from probe doown under basket if its got any water in it . replace it ti should float when water gets up to it. if not it keeps filling and extra goes down the drain
