    I have a Kenmore Side by Side Model 363.9527710 that had the same problem. The ice maker water did not shut off and ran out of the door dispenser. I replaced the Water Valve - Part WR57X10051 - which at first seemed to fix the problem. It began to make ice. The correction lasted about 3 hours when the leak started all over again!



    Did I just get a bad valve?

    My LG LFX25960SW Fridge is leaking water in the actual ice box/bin area causing the ice bin to freeze in place.  I did just have the ice dispenser flapper replaced, so I wonder if they might have triggered something else in the ice maker.  Any suggestions

There should be white cover on that ice maker assy. it will pry off with a small screw driver and underther should be an ajustment screw. it should be a turn screw marked with a + and -. if so turn to the minus side of line, half turn should be plenty of adjustment,very small increments, do not over adjust

Why is aSide by side fridge leaking brown liquid from below ice maker?


Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that you are seeing a brown liquid come from under your dispenser area. I would recommend you having a professional come out to your appliance to check and assure the water lines are connected properly and not developing any moisture problems to form from under your dispenser. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

Your water control has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other is the water disapenser. If the ice maker valve becomes mechanically defective the water valve can allow water to continue to flow or not flow at all. Replace the water control valve and I believe this will solve this porblem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Smelly Ice and water leaking into top shelf


Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first

Amana SBD21VE No water to ice maker


your water line to the fridge is most likely leaking. You should turn it off right away. The line turn off is either behind the fridge or under sink. sometimes its in basement. The line is very easy to replace. You can get the plastic ones at home centers for under 5 bucks.

Water dispenser


wow that's agood one!!!! theres a short for sure, just a matter of where. somehow your energizing both sides of water valve at once, sounds as if it would be behind the dispensor, at the switches. would remove the dispensor cover and have a look for a bad switch or exposed wire
