Ice forming in the top freezer, leaks in the
Sounds like the defrost circuit of your fridge has failed. If you remove the back panel of the freezer compartment, you will see the evap coil encased with ice. Normally the defrost circuit will turn off the compressor and turn on a heater to warm the coil to about 45 degrees to melt any frost build up. After about 40 minutes the compressor will kick back in to keep your fridge cool again.
The typical failures are that the defrost heater burns out. If you have an older fridge, the defrost timer fails to advance, causing the fridge to stay in cooling or defrost mode.

How do i replace the in door water line on my kenmore refrigerator model 25351399101?
Would you tell me why you want to repair this water line? I'm not clear about the problem you are having. To prepare the refrigerator for service. You will need locate the shut off valve to the refrigerators water supply line. After the water is turned off. You can slowly and carefully pull the appliance away from the wall. If the water supply line to the refrigerator is copper tubing. You want to move the unit as little as possible. The more it is moved the more there is a chance of developing a leak. Depending on the installer, they may have used copper or nylon tubing. Copper is similar to metal in the respect that if the line is bent repeatedly. The material will weaken and could crack. This will not happen quickly. It's just a good practice to leave it alone and move it only when necessary. Please write back and explain where the unit is leaking and let me know if you are referring to the water supply line going to the refrigerator. If you suspect that the water line inside the door is leaking please tell me where. It is a common mistake that owners think their refrigerator has a damaged hose. In actuality the water control valve assembly is worn out and leaking. Feel free to write back with any questions and I'll do my best to help you figure this out. You don't want to waste your time pulling a door apart when the problem wasn't even there to begin with.
