JennAir JFD2589KES French Door Refrigerator with bottom freezer_I have had this fridge since Oct 2008. The water dispenser is leaking from where the filter is housed. The water is leaking from the back of the housing unit. The rate at which it is leaking is approximately 1/4 cup per day. I have checked to make sure the filter is properly inserted.

Have a GE refrigerator model # PSS26PSTA SS. For some reason the ice is melting in storage ban. I checked the flaper in door to make sure it is closed, thinking the worm air coming through would cause this. It's OK. Is there anything else that can cause this problem? The indicator in ref. says temp is Zero Degrees. Do not know if this right but everything is frozen in freezer. This has been a problem for over a month now. Thank You for any help. Rich

I have a Kitchenaid refrigerator that the coil in the back of the freezer will freeze up and not make ice or keep things cold. Had this problem a few years ago,after a power outage and a service tech checked it out saying because we didn't let it defrost all the way that it would cause the defrost control to fail.

... KitchenAid Model: KSSC42QTS

Ever since I've owned my fridge (coming up on 4 years), the freezer would build up into a big chunk of ice causing the freezer temp to drop and the fridge temp to rise. I would melt the chunk of ice and then drain the water from the back of the fridge. It would work properly for a few months and then start happening again. Now, its happening with more frequency. Currently, the freezer temp is holding around 0 and the fridge temp is up around 55-60.

Our freezer has a pool of ice underneath the freezer trays. We're not sure if it's caused by water spilling while we were making ice or if there is another problem with the freezer.

My side by side refrigerator has stopped cooling but sounds like it is running. There is frost on the back wall of the freezer and things are defrosting. Right now the freezer is 14 degrees and the refrigerator is 46 degrees. This happened once before and a repair person came out and changed something that seemed to fix the problem, but I am not sure what it was. The refrigerator is only 2 years old.


It may be the thermistor that he replaced. Usually for these cases, have the frost melted away and have it cleaned. It should solve the issue. If it occurs again, it may be the thermistor (again). Also check the air circulation at the back of the ... Refrigerators

Hello help People, Water is dripping very slowly from the back of the fridge ceiling seemingly coming from the drain in the freezer?
