Why is water in bottom of freezer


there are 3 problems I've come across with water leaks on this model. if there is ice build up on the back of the freeze it could be a drain problem or if its around the ice maker it could be that the supply tube is too long. also watch out if you push the unit too far back against the wall the gray water supply line could snap off ( replaced 6 of these)

How to reassemble ice dispenser parts od kenmore model 106.5706*602


Clean out the new ice maker with warm soapy water.

Ensure that the floor surface under your refrigerator is level. If the floor surface under your refrigerator isn't level, you can place shims under the legs of the refrigerator to fix the uneven surface.

Turn off the main water supply to your house.

Clear the water line by running the faucets until the pipe clears.

Screw the copper supply line's connector to the house's cold water connector valve. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection.

Slide the compression sleeve and nut onto the other end of the copper supply line. The compression sleeve and nut will wrap around the outside of the copper supply line.

Bend the copper supply line to fit into the water line inlet casing located on the back of the refrigerator. Leave slack in the line so that the refrigerator can be pulled away from the wall or cabinets. The water line inlet casing is a plastic bracket used to hold the copper supply line in place so that there is no pull on the tubing's connection. It is the larger of the two plastic brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Insert the compression sleeve located around the end of the copper supply line into the ice maker connector. The ice maker connector is already installed on the back of the Maytag refrigerator.

Tighten the nut over the connection between the compression sleeve on the copper supply line and the ice maker connector with an adjustable wrench.

Attach the water supply tube clamp to the water supply line by clipping it into place. The water supply tube clamp is a plastic bracket located on the back of the refrigerator that holds the supply tube so that it doesn't rattle and become disconnected. It is the smaller of the two brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Turn on the main water supply.

Check all connections for leaks.

Position the drain hose located on the back of the ice maker over your floor drain. Use a PVC pipe if you need to redirect the drain hose flow so that it falls over the floor drain. The PVC pipe should not touch the drain hose and should have no low point where the water can settle.

Plug the ice maker into a 3-prong grounded outlet.

Ice maker not making ice water dispenser works well


There are 2 solenoids, one controls the water dispenser the other controls the ice maker water supply. Follow the tubing down the back of the refrigerator to find the ice maker solenoid. If the line is frozen between the back of the refrigerator and the ice maker it won't make ice either. If the line is frozen you need to check to see if the solenoid is leaking, this allows a trickle of water to continously flow through the lina and freeze.

Water squirts out the back of my Kitchen Aid Superba where the water line enters the fridge. This happens when the ice maker tries to fill with water.


make sure that the water supply line is tight. the line that comes from the wall should be copper or stainless steel braided line. if it is the clear plastic line get rid of it as it is more prone to kink and leak especially at the points where the connections are made... another thing to check is where the supply line connects to the frig.. that is the solinoid valve and on the top is a blue or clear plastic cap and somtimes they will crack or have a small pin hole in them and will spray a very fine stream of water that is hard to see but can be felt on your finger tip.. pull out the frig and empty the ice tray and put it back in and close the freezer door or drawer and wait for the ice maker to call for water and have a bright flashlight ready, when it calles for water you will only have about 5-7 seconds to see where the leak is so make sure to feel around as well.; if your are replacing the ice maker supply line from the wall to the frig make sure to not over tighten the connection to the frig because it may cause that plastic cap to crack....I hope this helps....

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Water dispenser leaks, ice maker won't make ice. Hve disconnected line at bottom front, and tried blowing out the lines, no help. Model EDQ22DQFNX00


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

For the ice maker problem, 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.If it does, the problem is the ice maker and not the valve and line.

Leaking water from the ice maker


It is very unlikely that you have a leaking water line inside the fridge/freezer, as they are protected from damage. If you have water dripping from the ice maker inside the freezer and/or the dispenser in the door, the most likely problem is the valve that supplies water to the ice maker.

You'll need to replace the water inlet valve that supplies water to the ice maker. This is not the same valve that supplies water to the fridge (I believe the yellow colored valve) but rather, it is the blue valve, mounted just above the main water inlet valve.

At the bottom back right side of the fridge, you can remove the covering and see both the yellow and blue valves. The yellow one (on the bottom) is the incoming water control valve, while the blue (upper one) supplies water to the ice maker.

The part runs about $45-50 if you get it yourself, or around $185.00 for a repair person to come out and do the job for you. It should only take about 20-30 minutes to do it yourself with a small 1/4" nutdriver. Part available from Searspartsdirect.com or several other online and local stores. Just call around and give them your fridge model number and serial number, located on the inside of the fresh food section of the fridge - on the "ceiling" just inside the door.

Hope that helps.

Water leaking from freezer down to refrigerator at a slow drip.


There is a solenoid that controls the water flowing to the ice maker in the freezer. It is usually near the bottom of the fridge on the back. It may be covered by a cardboard or metal back that is easily removed by taking off a few screws. There will be one water supply line coming into it and one or two water supplies going out. When the solenoid begins to fail it sends water to the ice maker when it doesn't need it causing an overflow in the ice tray which leaks down into the freezer giving it a kind of glacier effect. Real easy fix though. Just replace the solenoid on the back of the fridge. I bought one online for around $20 and it is very easy to do. If you have water in the door and an ice maker it will be a dual solenoid. Turn off the water supply, disconnect the water lines,  take the solenoid off the fridge to get the part number. Google it, Get it, put it back in the way you took it out, turn the water supply back on and your back in business without a costly ripoff technician.
