Dear reader, We have water leakage at the rear side of the water filter inside the refrigerator. Probably on tube connections, but there is a cover over it. Before i crack something, please give me a hint how to remove this cover. Thanks, Ron

    The leakage is comming from behind the water filter at the right hand top side of the fridge.
    As far as i can see, there are no screws.
    Tried to pull, push or slide but no moving.

Behind the crisper? The cover is usually lift off. If not look for screws up and down the sides. The water reservoir is there and should have connections at each end.

My water dispenser was not working. Tried the defrost trick and still no water. Noticed water under the refrigerator.

The Dispenser supply usually flows through the bottom, inside toward the back to cool the water. If the puddle is near the back. refrigerator section it's probably this water cooling arrangement. Usually. a number of the tubing loops near the back bottom edge. Connections here or tubing itself may leak. It may also be an undetected leak from the Filter housing or the filter is not properly seated or possible filter housing connections. I have had good success with paper towel detection method. Wrap
or paste, tape towel to suspect leak locations. They will soon appear and point to the apparent leak.

My fridge is leaking, I don't know from where. I have a towel across the bottom on the inside so it won't leak on the floor. Is there any way I can correct this. There was no change in the temps.

Probably the defrost overflow tube is blocked. That water dripping out of the fridge should be siphoned by the tube to the rear outside of the fridge where the heat from the motor will evaporate the water from the defrost cycle. You need to remove the cover from the inside rear of the freezer andcheck that water can flow down the tube without spilling over the edges of the collection trough.

No water going to ice maker

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Ice buildup from water feeding the ice maker

Are you certain that the ice build-up is actually originating from the water flow into the icemaker? If ice is built-up on the rear freezer panel, then your problem is more than likely a defrost component issue (defrost thermostat or defrost heater(s). If the ice is built-up on the side wall of the freezer near the icemaker, then water is probably being diverted inside the water inlet tubing that goes into the icemaker. This diversion is usually caused by an accumulation of ice inside the water inlet tubing. You will probably need to remove the icemaker in order to glance inside the water inlet tubing to see if ice is in fact inside the tubing. If so, take a screw driver or other object that won't puncture the tubing and remove the ice.

Contact an appliance service company if the ice is on the rear freezer panel.

Kenmore Cold spot refrigerator model 106 70182001 leaking inside in the back of the refrigerator. Having to keep bowls in the back of the top shelf. How can I fix this?

Your defrost drain in the frezer is cloged. Every day when your refrig sellf defrosts the water should drain into a hole that leads to a tube wich drains the water to a pan under the refrig. You need to turn offrefrig and remove frezer floor and rear wall and clean out hole and tube with hot water.

I side by side refrigerator and I just replaced my water filter. No water will come out now. What do I need to do?

Turn off the water to the filter. Disconnect the water line from the filter to the refrigerator, at the refrigerator. Point the tubing into a bucket and turn the water on. If you're getting water there, you may have a plugged or defective solenoid. Make sure the wires are connected to the solenoid firmly. If the solenoid has a inlet screen, check it for sediment or water filter debris. If necessary, replace the valve.
If there is no water flow at the tubing to the fridge, shut the valve and remove the tubing from the filter to the fridge, at the filter. Inspect the inside of the filter for packing, ostructions, etc. Try again for water. If you get water there, clear or replace your tubing. If no water, close the valve and remove the tubing at the filter that comes from the wall. Check that end of the filter also for pluggage. Test the water line up to the filter. If you get water now, the filter is plugged or defective. Check the flow direction arrow on the filter, if it has one. Some filters have one-way valves. If no water, close the valve again and remove the tubing connection at the valve. Try again.. If you get water now, the tubing to the filter is plugged. If you don't, it'll be the valve or another plumbing issue. If you are getting water everywhere else, replae the valve. You may have to shut off the water to your house and depressure the lines to get at it.
Good luck. Hope this was useful!
Regards, --W/D--
