Question and Answers

Q:

Ice Maker leaking 10678205890 Kenmore Refrigerator

Q:

Why is my Kenmore refrigerator not getting water to the icemaker?

A:

The icemaker should start working within a couple of hours. Did you check for a frozen fill tube? Remove the icemaker cover & use a #12 or 14 insulated copper jumper wire to jump V to L. This will send 120volts directly to the water valve. If the water valve is receiving voltage & the water is turned on & working, then I suspect a frozen fill tube. Another possibility is a bad wire or no water from supply.

Q:

What parts do I replace?

A:

If you have a heavy frost build up in the freezer, on the back panel this will be a defrost problem. In this case, to determine what's causing the problem, the defrost timer (see picture # 4) can be advanced manually. There will be a small hole in the control housing that the timer cam fits in. Use a screwdriver and turn the cam slowly until it clicks and the unit quits. After a few minutes with the freezer door open, you should hear some popping and hissing, which indicates the element is on. In this case the timer will need to be replaced. If nothing happens, some voltage and resistance checks will need to be made to determine the problem. A technician may be needed to make these checks.

If there is no excessive frosting taking place in the freezer, then this will be a frozen drain problem. This is the most common problem for water dripping in the refrigerator. 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. First disconnect power to 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 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. With the drain system clear, water should stop leaking in the refrigerator. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
