Q:

Leaking water in Fridge part at back of top shelf. 10670852990 Kenmore Top mount refrigerator

A:

I understand how frustrating this type of issue can become with your refrigerator. I am happy to help. Water will leak into the refrigerator when the drain system freezes up. Every time the unit goes into a defrost cycle, water will run down into the refrigerator, instead of down the drain. To clear the drain, remove everything in the freezer so the back panel can be removed. Be sure to disconnect power from the unit.

With the panel removed, you will see the evaporator coil and directly under the coil is the drain trough (pan). The trough will probably be full of ice that will need to be removed. With the ice out of the trough, you will be able to see the drain hole which will be plugged with ice. Use hot water and a turkey baster to clear the drain hole. Keep working the hot water into the hole and wiping the excess water. This can take quite awhile, depending on how deep the ice is. This will need to be done until you get a good water flow down to the bottom drain pan. Then wipe up all of the water and ice on the floor of the freezer and reassemble the refrigerator. With the drain system clear, water should stop leaking in the refrigerator.

Please let me know if this will be helpful or you need further assistance.

Q:

I need help trouble shooting my icemaker. Can some one help

A:

Without a model number for your refrigerator (or free standing ice maker), it is difficult to provide specific troubleshooting. Here are some general tips that may help if the ice maker is in the freezer of your refrigerator:

  • Many ice makers will have a metal arm on the side of the module that needs to be fully down for the ice maker to cycle. Make sure that this arm is fully down if you find one on your ice maker.
  • If you have a side-by-side refrigerator with a water dispenser, make sure that the water dispenser is working properly. If not, you could have a water supply problem that is preventing the ice maker from working. Make sure that the water cut-off valve for the refrigerator is fully open. Shut off the water supply and disconnect the water line. Place the end of the water line in a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply valve to verify that you have proper water pressure and flow through the tube. If you have a water filter installed in the refrigerator (or behind it), try changing the filter to see if water flow improves through the water dispenser. The ice maker may start making ice if the water supply is restored. If not, you will need more advanced technical help to check the ice maker module.
If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your refrigerator (or freestanding ice maker).

My frig is a model 106.70852990. The icemaker stopped making ice. I changed out the water valve but it still cannot get water to the tray. When I applied power to the old valve it opened. So it was not a valve problem. The motor is working and rotates thru the cycle but the valve is evidently not getting the signal to open. Could the line be frozen or is the module bad? Can the module be tested? Al

Sorry that I did not see this reply sooner. Those parts in that dispenser can often be replaced as a do-it-yourself repair. If you still need help, let us know.

I can understand your concern. The part you are referring to is the compressor. Compressors can be noisy and it won't mean anything is wrong. If it gets excessively loud, then it may need to be replaced. Now, if it's past the 5 yr warranty I would not recommend making this repair. A technician will be required to make this type of repair. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . This repair would not be economical. The cost would be comparable to a new refrigerator. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further. I hope this will help you.
