I have a Kenmore refrigerator, mod #57282791 with an ice maker model #S10626636. The ice maker is letting too much water into it and it overflows making one big blob of ice. I know there is a water level adjustment on the front of the ice machiine, but don't know exactly where. Can you tell me which little doodad it is? I'm well beyond the point of utter frustration.

To adjust the water level, carefully remove the front cover of the ice maker itself. On the front of the ice maker, there is a small nylon screw that controls the water intake amount. If the screw is turned to the right, it will decrease the amount of water entering the ice maker. If the screw is turned to the left, it will increase the amount of water entering the ice maker. The screw should only be turned 1/4 of a turn at a time; therefore, more than one adjustment may be required. The maximum adjustment is one full turn in either direction. Additional rotation could damage the ice maker. I found this at:
I have a Kenmore side by side fridge with ice maker. We moved it recently when we remodeled our kitchen. Now our ice maker is leaking every time it fills, making a giant ice blob in the ice bin.
Is there a gasket that goes bad? I read the feedback from carnation037 posted on 05/05/2008 and tried turning the screw, but nothing changed. Can anyone else tell me anything to try, please?

I have a dealer installed ice maker kit inside the freezer compartment of our Whirlpool refrigerator. It has worked fine for years. We recently went on vacation. Since we came home the ice maker overflows water after dispensing the cubes into the bin, creating a block of ice with the cubes.
I read some of the other posts about the adjustment screw in the front, and think I have found it under the cover. But why would it suddenly change fill levels? Any suggestions?

My Kenmore side by side refrigerator ice maker over fills with water. It does not stop filling and over flows. What is going on?
