Sounds like your defrost drainpan is stopped up. It should be located behind the rear panel in the freezer, below the coil. If it is frozen, DO NOT USE A POINTY OBJECT!!! Thaw it with a hair dryer or leave unit off overnight. Clear any debris from pan. Some units have a cup-like device at top rear center of ref. section. If so, you can pull it foreward to remove it, then flush with hot water and re-install. good luck.

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

    Hi
    There is a definetely leak in the cooling gas.
    Firstly... You will need to find from where the gas has leaked. It is usually on the compressor pipes..... but not always.


    Secondly you are right about the Water Valve... it needs to be changed.
    Regards

    If you think it is the ice maker then shut down the water supply and see if the leak stops. Most likely though it is probably a blocked defrost drain.
