Refrigerator and freezer not cold enough

First, depending on when you find out your problem, be prepared to toss out spoiled food. Unplug the unit. Since you must allow the ice build up on the coil to melt, be prepared for water. Use towels placed under the coil in the freezer to soak this up or it will end up on the floor. Remove ice maker bucket as the ice will melt, that is if there is any. In my case the defrost timer was bad but I later learned that my defrost heater was also bad. Do yourself a favor and change both the defrost timer and defrost heaters. This issue is generally an age issue so replacing both will give you peace of mind. Also, clean the whole freezer as this is the time to do it. You will be surprised at the ice maker bucket cleanliness. Time to prepare and clean is what takes additional time. Time to repair is short and simple. One last thing, when replacing the defrost timer try not to mess with the temp. control slides as you will have to put them back in the proper positions for reassembly of the cover.

Water on floor, ice on bottom of freezer, won't dispense water

Problems were due to the solenoids for the inlet valves not turning on and off as quickly as they should. Unplugged the refrigerator and pulled it out from the wall to get access to the back. Removed the back cover and the screw that holds the dual water inlet assembly, just as shown in the video. One difference is that the connectors for one of the new solenoids are narrower than the originals. It is necessary to use the two little adapter blades provided along with the new assembly to make them fit tightly in the existing wiring harness connector. We also noticed that the ice dispenser flapper was not closing all the way. Removed the trim plate around the water/ice dispenser by slipping a knife blade under the bottom edge and prying it loose. It was not as easy as in the video. Next, removed the nameplate and 4 screws that are under it. Disconnected the wiring plug at the top left and let the disconnected front assembly hang down to get access to the ice dispenser door solenoid. Disconnected the wiring harness from the solenoid and removed the solenoid attaching screws. Removed the flapper and it's crank arm and then the spring. Put everything back together in reverse order. The only thing a little bit tricky is that the trim plate must be hung from the top cleat first before pressing the sides and bottom edges to snap them back in place. Very nice to have water, ice, and a dry floor again.

I'm a real novice at appliance repair but learned a lot from this effort. After doing enough online research and watching videos, I diagnosed the problem with my 20 year old ice maker. It was working, just not getting water. So I ordered a new water valve, much cheaper than the part Sears recommended. I easily hooked up the new valve but the old copper water supply line was leaking so I ordered a $7 pex line from Home Depot. Hooked it all back up and now I'm in business, and saved some money too!
