Kenmore 795 leaking water behind ice maker

I have a Kenmore Elite, bottom freezer, French door fridge with ice maker and water/ice dispenser in the door. The ice maker is leaking water behind the ice maker, which can't be seen until it leaks out of the bottom of the compartment where it freezes. I've disassembled the entire icemaker mechanism. There was ice build up behind the assembly. I don't know if replacing the ice maker wil resolve the issue, or if the issue stems from the water intake.

Aaron with Repair Monkey Service Group. It may be as simple a fix as bending the inlet tube outward to direct the water in properly. Over time I have seen these tubes, which are manufactured with bends in them, move in the cold and the heater tape that is on them to keep the line from freezing will cause this problem. You will have to see it cycle and call for water and time it, like in a previous answer and watch the flow, try and direct it into the middle. A quicker way to cycle the ice maker one time is, turn off the ice maker, wait a minute, then unplug the refrigerator, wait five minutes, then plug it back in and then turn on the ice maker, this will work for all models with the on/ off button built into the control panel and not the actual ice maker, but may also work for the other models as well. Either way, turn off the ice maker till ready to watch the cycle, then turn it on.

I would first check the hose that brings the water from the pipes in the house up into the icemaker make sure that's not leaking. Then I would check all of your connections, Making sure they are good and tight and that there's no holes either in the copper line or the poly plastic line. If all of that checks out fine and you have no leaks there then I would investigate the icemaker.

SOURCE: Water leaks into freezer bottom & floor

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.

SOURCE: ice maker issue

The ice maker is designed to add water at the end of the harvest cycle. The time frame is normally 7 seconds.
Dump the ice out of the bucket, and turn the ice maker off. Wait one hour.
Then turn the ice maker on and watch the complete cycle.
See if all the water is entering the ice maker cavity and for no longer than 7 seconds. If the timing exceeds 7 seconds, some of the Kenmore ice makers have a time adjustment. Snap off the front cover and adjust if it is that style.
If it exceeds this time frame, it could be either the water valve in the rear refusing to shut off on time, or the ice maker sending incorrect timing to the valve.Uusually the water valve.
As well, the ice maker well could be cracked causing, water to leak out of the bottom.
If you have erratic water pressure to the house or YOU ARE ON WELL WATER,
then this problems can be chronic and difficult if not impossible to totally resolve.

Check for cracks in the water supply tube from the house plumbing valve to the ice maker. Could also be the valve itself.

Turn off valve for a day to diagnose which.

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Kenmore Elite 795 75542401


I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.
