Look under there and see if any junk is blocking the airflow causing the condenser fan motor to howl.You can oil it with zoomspout oil. It is safe for refrigerators. Don't use WD-40 (flammable) Give it a good clean and verify the fan is moving the air down there. Just cleaning it greatly improves airflow and cooling efficiency. Let me know how it does. Give it a day after cleaning.

There may be algae contamination of the system. Disconnect the water supply and run in a mixture of 2 tsp of Baking Soda (bicarbonate of soda) in 1 cup of water through the line, from tap connector to dispenser. Leave the solution sitting in the lines for 1/2 hour prior to flushing with clean water and removing any ice made with the solution. Bicarbonate of soda is great for destroying cell walls of plants and fungi (algae, mold etc) and removing smells.

White vinegar is also hostile to algae, and doesn't leave a lingering smell, but bleach should be avoided, or used very sparingly, in systems used to supply water for consumption by people or pets.

The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,

The schematic should be under the kick plate grill. Remove grill and should either be in the grille or behind. Defrost thermostat is located on top of the evaporator behind back panel inside freezer

See if you got air comining out of vents in freezer sounds like evaporator in freezer is froze up. Is their ice buildup in freezer area?

Sounds like you might of left one of the doors open, which has frosted up your diffuser. Make sure doors are closing well. I would have to know where exactly the ice and leak is to give you a better answer. You can try turning off refrigerator and open doors for 8-10 hours and let it manual defrost. Turn back on and see if it reappears

Kenmore is a product from Sears. Therefore I would go into your nearest Sears store and pick up a water line replacement kit. It should come with everything you need as well as some instructions. The instructions will be fairly generic, meaning not necessarily exactly for your specific model of refrigerator, but otherwise should be adequate to get you going. You will need some basic hand tools, such as a pair of pliers or a small crescent wrench. Be sure to turn off the water supply before attempting this. Also have some towels handy as there'll still likely be some spillage.

If by chance your old water line is COPPER, then you may not be able to replace it yourself, as you may need a flaring tool. Also when tightening the connections on a copper line be sure to use two wrenches, one of which is to hold the connector you're hooking the line up to, otherwise you could damage either the fridge or the wall spigot (or both). Just me personally, but if it's a copper water line, I'd leave it to a pro.

You probably have a blocked drain line. The drip tray located under the cooling coil in the freezer has drain line attached that is blocked with debris. Some models have drain tube heater also, which may have failed.

Some icemakers have to be turned on inside the Freezer at the Icemaker itself, it might be as simple as a small on/off switch or a lever that completes the curcuit to the solenoid that allows the tray to fill. Remember: None of that will matter if the Ice Tray "Overfull" Safety Bar is in the Up position because that is a Safety switch that shuts OFF Power to the Icemaker. For You Novices... That's the bent silver Wire rod thingy that hangs over the Ice Bin/bucket deal. Simply grasp it and see if it will move down a bit, gently. If it moves freely, downward, You should hear the Icemaker start working! WARNING: Don't use the first few batches of Ice, after the second or third cycle, it should be pretty clean.

Usually just hold in the button for 3-5 seconds. It does depend on model # some models you push in the ref light switch 5-6 times. If you have complete model # would help

I have the Kenmore Elite model #106.53603201 side by side fridge and the fridge side will not get cold and is thawing out my fridge..

The little door that opens and lets the ice fall into Your cup is not closing all the way, allowing cold air to escape from Your Freezer and causing frost to build up. Simply look up at it or open the Freezer door and place a lit flashlight in the ice chute so You can see where the light is shining through the ice dispenser at. There should be a build-up of ice there that is keeping the "trap door" from closing all the way. Clean that off and You should be as good as new.
