Water is leaking from the Ice maker on top of the

Kenmore side by side. Water is leaking from the Ice maker on top of the freezer side. For some reason, I can't fathom, when I depress the tab to dispense water, water flows up the tube in back from the water valve to the ice maker. The ice maker is full and it flows out and freezes everywhere.

My Kenmore refrigerator's ice maker is dripping at the front of the ice maker. it drips slowly but makes a big chunk of ice right at the front of the bucket. What should I do?


This is pretty generic without a model # but holds true with alot of them..this type of icicle is usually caused by water overflowing the ice mold of the ice maker module. The reason for the overflow could be that the ice maker module is not level. Check to see if it is tilting. This could be caused by loose screws or a warping of the liner on the side wall of the freezer.

If the ice maker is level, then the next cause could be that the ice maker is overfilling. There is an adjustment screw on the right side of the front of the ice maker module. You may have to remove the cover from the front of the module to access this screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise to decrease the water fill. Turning this screw one turn may decrease the water fill level in the mold enough to prevent the leaking. If not, you may need to make a second adjustment.

Other problems that could cause this icicle could include:

Wicking of the water over the top of the ice maker mold caused by hard water deposits in the mold.

Leaking of the ice maker water solenoid valve.

Crack or leak in the ice maker module.

If the module is level and decreasing the water fill level does not solve your ice maker problem, then I recommend checking the ice mold for hard water deposits. If you find no deposits in the mold (or clean them and still have the same problem), then you will probably need a service technician to fix the ice maker. if you need more help, re-submit your question with additional details.
or reply in comments.

The freezer has an obvious leak. When we wait a few days, we can see that water leaked into the freezer and it turned into a large brick of ice? What does that mean?


Hi Monica,
This seems to be a problem with overflow of water into the ice maker, or a leak in the feeder to the ice maker. My suggestion is to turn off the ice maker by raising the lever on the unit, and see if the ice re-accumulates. This would mean that the water is leaking from the inlet, and the ice maker has no obvious fault. If you find this, you can remove the ice maker from the freezer by removing the screws holding it to the inside, unplug the unit from the back of the freezer, and pull straight out. Look at the inlet of the water at the rear of the freezer and see if there is a break in the line or a crack somewhere along it. You can replace it from the back of the refrigerator itself, going from the bottom where the water is hooked up to the top by removing the panel that guards it.
I hope this isn't too confusing.
Joe

Freezer door is leaking water at the bottom of the door


This sounds like the defrost drain on the freezer side is stopped up causing the drain to freeze over then eventually running out on the floor during the defrost cycle.

If you can see ice on the bottom of the freezer floor, then this is likely your problem unless your ice maker is leaking from the top of the freezer.

Locate the drain at the back of the freezer and thaw it out using hot water. Using a screw driver or other object gently push down into the defrost hole and dislodge whatever is stuck there.

An air hose with good air pressure may also work well. When the drain line is clear you should be able to pour water through it freely.

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

GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer problem/ice dam in ice maker


I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.
