Thank you for your question. It is concerning when a major appliance is giving trouble. I would thing that if the leak is coming from the icemaker, that would be from overfilling. The level on a modular icemaker can be adjusted. And if the icemaker is overfilling I recommend the adjustment be made. The adjustment screw is under the cover, which needs to be removed. Turning the adjustment know clockwise will decrease the flow of water into the mold. Note turn the adjustment screw no more than one full turn clockwise. Turning the knob further than one full turn can cause filling problems, and could cause damage to the floor from water overflow.

The other problem is the water valve letting water seep by when it should be off. This can be checked by turning off the water and checking to see if water is seeping into the icemaker.

I hope you find this info helpful.

You ice maker fill switch is probably defective and needs to be replaced. This would indicate a stuck contact in the icemaker module. A good check for this is, with the water running, disconnect the icemaker wire harness connection. Be careful the wires will be hot (live). If the water stops, replace the icemaker. If water continues to flow it will indicate the water valve is stuck or there is a short in the wiring to the valve. A technician will be required to make this check.

Since the water is shut off and you're still getting a leak, you should also check your drain tube. When the defrost tube is clogged or iced up the water has nowhere to run off into, so it starts going into the interior of the unit. This will cause your freezer to ice up and at times cause the fresh food section to warm up.

The drain will need to be cleared out and to gain access to it, the back panel in the freezer has to be removed. First disconnect power to the unit and then take everything out of the freezer section. When you get the back panel off, you will see the drain under the evaporator and it will probably be full of ice. Remove the ice until you can see the drain hole. Now use hot water to clean out the drain hole. You will need to keep pouring and wiping it until the drain is clear. If this is a reoccurring problem, there is also a heat probe # 819043 that can be installed. It will come with instructions. These parts are available at Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Safety Notice : Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
