The ice maker in my Kenmore Coldspot ice maker starting dripping several months ago. It started as just a single strand of frozen drip, but as you can see it is growing and is now thicker and dripping in more than one location. The frozen drip also contains a brownish substance. It is still making ice without a problem, but obviously this is turning into a problem.

Can this be fixed? The refrigerator is from 2001, so it's pretty old. Can I have the ice maker replaced? Repaired? Or is it time for a new model?

Hi,

Yes, I've seen this many times on my service calls, the fill circuit strip wears down over time and starts overfilling the ice maker more and more.:)

You'd need to replace the ice maker to fix it.

Here's the Ice Maker assembly for your model you can order:
