The answer Alina F sent has some good troubleshooting methods.

Turn the water to the refrigerator off and disconnect the water line from the house to the refrigerator water valve. Put the end of the water line in a bucket or pan and turn the water on full. You should have a stream of water out the end of the tubing that will shoot 2-3 feet.

A common problem is the shut off valve to the refrigerator gets clogged with debris. Since you have replaced the water valve and the icemaker, I suspect the problem is in the water supply to the refrigerator.

I am sending you an image showing the water level adjustment for the icemaker. This adjustment won't solve the problem of only filling 3 cubes. You need to find the problem in the water supply.

A:

Your symptom of hollow ice cubes indicates that you probably have a water supply problem.

Most instances of hollow ice cubes indicate that water pressure is not high enough to properly fill the mold in the ice maker. Perform the following checks for water pressure problems:

  1. If you have a water dispenser, check for proper water flow. You should be able to dispense at least 3 ounces of water within 5 seconds from your dispenser.
  2. Check your water filter status if you have a water filter on your refrigerator. A used up filter can restrict water flow to your ice maker. Many filter systems have an automatic bypass. You may be able to pull the filter out and check for improved water flow.
  3. Check your water supply line for kinks. If you do not have a dispenser, you can shut off the water supply, disconnect the supply tube, and check the water flow directly from the supply tubing. Place the tube in a bucket and turn the water supply on to check the flow.
  4. Cycle your water supply cut off valve. This valve is usually behind the refrigerator depending on your particular installation. If your valve is a small self tapping saddle type valve, it is prone to clogging. This particular type of cut off valve is not recommended for refrigerator water supply lines.
  5. If you have a reverse osmosis water filter system installed on your water supply to the refrigerator, you will need to reconnect the tubing directly to the regular house water supply. A reverse osmosis system will not deliver the minimum 30 psi water pressure needed for most ice maker systems.

As for the water dripping in the back, I have provided you with a link below that you can copy and paste into your web browser that will take you to an expert answer that pertains to the same symptoms you have regarding the water dripping from the back. I hope this information helps.

Q:

Why won't the ice maker fill with water in my Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator model 106.70284991?

A:

We don't have a system set up to accept or make phone calls at this time. We will be glad to provide advice and troubleshooting through this expert tool.

This refrigerator does not have a filter.

Here are some troubleshooting tips for the water supply problem in your ice maker:

  • Make sure that the metal shut off arm on the side of the ice maker module is in the full down position. If it is even slightly up, the ice maker will not cycle.
  • Check the water fill tube in upper left corner of the freezer to see if it is frozen. If it is, defrosting the freeze plug may fix your problem.
  • Unplug the refrigerator and make sure that the wire harness connection on the ice maker module is plugged in properly.
  • Pull the refrigerator forward and make sure that the water supply cut-off valve is fully open. Cycle the valve shut and then back open. Sometimes debris can clog the valve. Cycling it can sometimes eliminate the debris so that water flow will be restored.
  • If the above tips do not help, I recommend shutting off the water supply and removing the water tube connection on the back of the refrigerator. Place the end of the water supply tube in a bucket and briefly open the water supply shut-off valve to check the water pressure and flow from the supply tube. If the water pressure and/or flow are inadequate, I recommend calling a plumber to address your water supply problem.
  • If the water supply is okay, you will either need a technician or you will need to conduct some advanced testing and troubleshooting. The images below show technical information regarding this type of ice maker. If you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and perform the testing described below, you may be able to determine the cause of your ice maker failure. The second image describes a method of manually cycling the ice maker by jumping the contacts T and H with an insulated jumper wire. This will help you determine whether the ice maker will cycle properly. Be sure to follow this procedure properly. Do not leave the insulated jumper wire inserted in the contacts longer than indicated in the instructions. This could damage the module. If the module cycles and does not fill, you can unplug the refrigerator and measure the resistance through the fill valve circuit as indicated in the first image. A failed water valve could prevent the ice maker from filling. A wiring failure or failed module could also be causing your problem.
If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
