Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Inside the freezer of my General Eletric GSH25JSTA SS, I seem to have a small trickle of water running down the back of the freezer. This trickle of water freezes at the bottom of the freezer. The water seems to melt and leak onto the floor. It's not a huge leak, but it'll get a towel somewhat wet/damp. I turned the freezer off overnight and wiped up the melted water. However, when I turned the freezer back on, the trickle of water started again and froze on the bottom. Any help would be g


Answers :

I don't think it's dripping down,you have a blocked drain,if you follow the back wall down to the bottom you'll see a drain hole,when the freezer goes into defrost the heater comes on and melts the ice off of the evap coil,the water suppose to drain down the hole into the pan at the bottom of the machine where it will evaporate but it sounds like your drain hole is blocked.it's a common thing with all machines,unplug it,melt all the ice with a hair dryer and melt out the ice in the hole,now you have to clean out the line,i have a steemer to blow out the line,if you don't have a steemer you need something that will blow through like a turkey baster or if you have a shop vac you can vac out the hole then put the vac on blow and blow through the hole,when you think it might be clear pour hot water into the hole,if it drains you're all done,if the water doesn't drain down you have to keep hitting it,if you try to snake something down the hole be careful most of the lines are plastic and you don't want to poke a hole through the line.if you can't see the drain hole on some models you have to remove the back inside wall of the freezer but it sounds like this is your problem.good luck and if you need a hand with anything else i'd be happy to help.

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole. Is the heat element suppose to evaporate everthing when it goes through the defrost cycle? How do I quit having water run all over my floor?

I saw your solution to the Maytag mtb2156 fridge freezer leaking water on the floor despite the freezer and fridge working properly to keep things cold. I emptied the freezer and turned off the power, but I can't see how to get the panel off so that I can access the drain. It seems to be attached by little plastic covered bolts, and I'm afraid to just pull or I'll break the back. How do I get the panel off? Thanks. Sherry

I have a Maytag Refrigerator with an ice maker and it is leaking. The model is msd2454grw. The water drips inside the freezer and freezes. Now the part that turns the ice out and dispenses it has broke off of the white plastic cover. So now I not only have a dripping ice maker but now the dispenser doesn't work. I think that the water getting frozen in the freezer caused the dispenser to break off. I need a new cover to mount the motor dipenser back on and probably a ice tray maker. What do you

There seems to be a leak problem in the freezer area. what started as constant running fill on the ice maker is now looking like a leak in the baclk wall above the freezer coil, Is there a vlave or other part prone to leaking there? After we got the water flow stopped in the ice tray filler, the leak in the back wall seems to have developed. I turned off the water supply to the fridge. The sound was like an intermittant spritsing sound. It did stop when i turned the water supply off. I have a

Fridge and freezer are working just fine. But, I keep getting pools of water inside my fridge. These pools stay to the back of the fridge on all levels and they sometimes turn to ice. I notice ice layer on the freezer bottom too. We turned off the ice maker water valve thinking this was the problem, but pools kept coming. I notice a little drain behind the bottom drawer but can't see how the water would get there as the drawer is in the way.


Your defrost drain is most likely blocked with ice or sludge. Now when your refrigerator goes into defrost it pours into base of freezer or just anywhere it can to pool up. Click Here=> ... Whirlpool Refrigerators

We have the WH95TP unit on our boat. It has worked great for 10 years. Last weekend there was water leaking from behind the unit. We turned it off and turned the water flow off and left for the week. When we returned, we turned both the unit and the water back on. The inside of the unit seemed to get really warm and had a slight smell. Then water began leaking from inside the unit. We turned the unit off again. Any idea as to what is causing this problem?


Was the unit running when it was warm? If it was then you need a tech to look at the sealed system. If it wasnt running then you need to adjust the icemaker ejector blade so its straight up (12 oclock) Thats when it will allow the compressor to come ... U-Line Refrigerator Ice Maker

Our whirlpool refrigerator is leaking water out the back. We have turned off the water source but there still appears to be water leaking from somewhere. Everything is still frozen and the freezer is at minus 4 degrees so we don't think it is defrosting. It is only two years old. Is it easy to disconnect the water line from the back to make sure the water line is not still letting water in?

My GE Profile TBX22PR ice maker seems to be leaking water on the floor. Is this because the ice tray somehow didn't get pushed back in properly? Or is there another problem? When I turn off the water line, the leaking stops.This happened once before, and when I removed the tray and put it back in again the leak stopped. But, this time it doesn't seem to correct the problem.

10 yr old kitchen aid KSRS251 side by side leaks water from freezer onto floor about every 3-4 days - about 5 oz of water which is enough to be slippery/dangerous.

My freezer is leaking water from the backside and the water is flowing thru the bottom portion of the freezer and out the front. The water freezes on impact covering the drain hole and I have to get a hammer to break up the ice daily. After I hear a loud shut off noise the back portion of the freezer has a red glow and you can hear the water hitting a heating element. Is this the compressor and should I just replace the fridge all togethe? Was purchased in 1989.

We have a GE GTS 222C top freezer refrigerator, approx. 8 years old. The freezer works fine but the frig doesn't cool and is at the highest setting.

Leaking under refrigerator and I have turned off water supply. Would the additional water be from water left in the hose or tank or should I disconnect hose from back .
