Hello there:- I presurme the water is leaking out underneath the drawer on the freezer compartment. Since there is no other prosibility where the water come from . So it must be the defrost water not running down the drain tube to the drain pan through the drain hole on the freezer side because it is blocked . Clean out this drain pan hole and the drain tube see you can sort out the problem. God bless .

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.

I just hooked up the ice maker to the water line and put the lever down on the icemaker. The water has not filled the ice maker. Is there something I need to do further? The model # is 596.765 73600


  • here are some things to check for, please be very careful and only to this if you disconnect the power supply.

  • 1 Inspect the shut off arm located on the side of the ice maker. This arm should move up and down with a slight resistance when pushing upward. Make sure that this lever is not frozen to the side of the ice maker preventing it from dispensing ice. In addition, if the arm move loosely up and down, then it is broken and must be replaced.

  • 2 Verify that the ice maker is receiving water. Check the water supply valve which is usually located either behind the refrigerator or under the kitchen sink. The knob should be turned all the way clockwise until it will no longer move.
  • 3 Move the freezer or refrigerator out from the wall and locate the water supply line. This line extends from the water supply valve that was previously located. Make sure there are no kinks or twists in the water supply line as this prevents the ice maker from getting water. Also check for leaks along the supply line which will also prevent the ice maker form working.
  • 4 Locate the manual shut off button for the freezer, if it has one. In some models, the shut off button is located inside the freezer door. If this is the case, simply check to make sure the button is switched to the "on" position. Shut off valves are only on some Kenmore refrigerator/freezer combination appliances.
  • 5 Measure the temperature in the freezer by placing a thermometer inside and allowing it to sit for approximately one hour. If the temperature is higher than 17 degrees F, then something is wrong with the main freezer and not the ice maker.
  • 6 Check the water inlet valve to ensure that is allows water to flow through freely. First turn off the water supply at the water supply valve, usually located under the sink or behind the appliance. Locate the water inlet valve by following the water supply line up to where it attaches to the refrigerator or freezer. Turn the plastic nut at the base of the supply line counterclockwise to detach the supply line. Pull the two or four wires of the water inlet valve off of the terminals. Inspect the wires for burn marks or corrosion. If these are present, it means they must be replaced as water is not being fed to the freezer.
  • good luck

    Leaking water in side always


    If the water leak is down the back or ctr its the drain line going to the underside of the fridge. If its down the side where the ice maker is its the ice make is not level if no ice maker your tray under the freezer may be leaking instead of draining.

    Water is not filling ice cube maker


    Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.


    Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

    Once the ice mold has water in it, it may start cycling when it freezes.

    If the fill tube is blocked with ice, the water inlet valve is leaking and needs to be replaced.

    I have water leaking out the back of the freezer side of my side


    Pull the fridge away from the wall and check where the water line enters the fridge for the ice maker. If there is a fitting there, make sure that it is tight or the clamp is secure. If it looks cracked or split in any way, remove it and replace it with new hose.

    Hope this helps,

    Leaking water under frig and ice-maker is not hooked up?


    The problem you are experiencing is normally a blocked evaporator drain line. Whether you have a side by side model or a top mount freezer the solution is relatively the same. Most top mount freezer models have a rear evaporator panel covering the aluminum evaporator coils. There are some instances where the evaporator coils are on the floor. These instructions are for top mount freezers where the rear freezer panel covers the evaporator coils. First of all, if there is an ice maker in your unit, this will have to be removed. Normally there are two screws which can be loosened and the body of the ice maker can be lifted off the screws leaving only a plug in harness to disconnect. Remove the harness either from the plug at the left wall or rear of the freezer and set it to the side. Next, remove all the screws securing the rear panel. Remove the rear panel exposing the aluminum evaporator coils. Be careful not to damage these coils as they contain the freon that cools your refrigerator. If you look closely underneath these coils, there will be ice from frozen defrosted water. Using a hair dryer and not a heat gun, melt all the ice and sop up the water with a towel. Now you will see a drain hole which is normally still blocked with ice. Pour hot water in this hole and sop it up. Keep doing this until you pour water down the hole and it drains into the evaporator drain pan either under or behind your refrigerator. Once you have unblocked this drain line, reassemble and plug the refrigerator back in. Set all controls to the middle settings and within 24 hours, your unit will be functioning correctly once again.

    Check to see if you have a crack in the water line running to the ice maker. The plastic line is prone to crack. Easy way to see if water is from ice maker is to shut off water to it (usually under sink).
