Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Coldspot (mfg date 10/00), model 106.70192001. The ice maker is NOT hooked up (by choice) and for the last several weeks, there has been water draining from freezer into fridge in a cyclic pattern. The water collects on the glass shelves and forms a sheet of ice. WHY is it draining water?

Your drain line is frozen and is not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and thaw the drain line. Make sure ALL ice is thawed before reassembling. I would recommend installing a drain heater so it will not happen again. They are inexpensive and easy to install. They come with complete instructions.

Ice maker in kenmore coldspot refrigerator quit making ice, nowater flow


There are several causes of no ice maker operation. First, is the freezer cold enough? It must be below 32F to operate the icemaker. 2nd: Is the bale or metal rod that runs along the side of the ice maker in the down position? 3rd: You may have a failed water solenoid valve, located on the back of the unit. The plastic or copper water line from your house's water supply is attached to this valve.
