Question about Sub-Zero 632 / S

Ice maker leaking

My icemaker leaks water that forms a large icicle in the icecube tray. whats the problem causing this? i have to remove the ice formation at least once a day. Ive tried changing the filter. Nothing has worked. I believe too much water is coming into the ice maker, resulting in overflow of some water into the ice cube container and resultant melted mass of ice in the right side of the container. Is there an adjustment for the amount of water flowing into the ice maker at each cycle?

Icicle are forming around icemaker port inside of


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Icemaker leaking causing icicles


Is it overfilling with water? If so, it may be an problem with the fill valve leaking slightly. I say slightly because if it were a large leak, the freezer would have frozen puddles in it. Also check the water chute to be sure the water is all going into the freeze tray. Sometimes they can work loose.

If the seam is leaking, there could be a crack in the housing - not sure that's repairable - sometimes epoxy will work (5 minute, 2 part) but it can be difficult for glue to hold on the type of plastic used in an ise maker housing.

Water leaking underneath icemaker, dripping into ice tray


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the first one.

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray


Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.

Ice maker leaking into ice storage tray


please check the small hose that guide the water to the ice tray. see that it is in good condition and no cracks or damage what so ever. then look closely at the ice tray, there maybe an ice that would not fell. could have been stuck in there that is why every time water would flow, it would just flow anywhere.

Ice maker leaking


Sometimes the frozen chunk of ice in the back of your ice tub is caused by the tub being overfilled. The ice cubes pile up so high that they come in contact with the defrost heating element in the bottom of the ice maker. This melts the already formed cubes and form a blob of ice in the rear of the tub.

If the "icicle" is forming even when the tub is relatively empty, then it is probably a leaking solenoid valve. This is an electric water valve that opens and closes according to demand. Like any valve, it has seats that eventually leak, especially in areas with hard water. This will need to be replaced. Water filters go a long way in increases the usefaul life span of the valve and will also improve the ice quality.
