Kenmore Ice Maker Leaks Water Onto Floor

My refrigerator has a bottom freezer with an ice maker. This is the second time we have had water in the bottom of the freezer. The first time water ran all over the floor. The repair man put in a new timer and the repair was $300. It has happened again. We shut off the ice maker. Would it be cheaper to replace the ice maker or have another part to fix. I don't dare to go away and have the house flooded.

When did you do the original $300 repair? Call them back and complain that they did not fix the problem. If it was recent you may be under warranty.

I agree with OliveOyl. To take it one step further have the person who did the warranty work return and this time completely remove the ice maker and disconnect it so you no longer have it leaking on your kitchen floor. Make your own ice cubes by using the ice cube trays.

My Kenmore 106.74252402 leaks water on to the floor as the ice maker is filling. Ice is forming on the freezer floor and bottom of ice bin.

The issue here is that the solenoid is not shutting off completely and the water that leaks thru freezes and blocks the water delivery tube. We had two tube changes before we demanded a new solenoid.

That resolved the issue six months and it has resumed slightly. I shut off the ice maker for three days hoping that the normal de-ice cycle would clear the ice dam. We have one fill without overflw.
