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?
Hi,\012The drain hole is plugged with debris or ice...Just had to thaw my own out tonight, it was doing the same thing...\012Take the bottom draw out and maybe the bottom shelf and then you will see the ice buidup in the back and on the floor.. ...
Maytag MSD2651 HE Side by Side Refrigerator
GE freezer (side by side) if forming ice at bottom of freezer. The problem is unrelated to the ice maker and water feed (have them turned off), and appears related to the heating element causing water to drip, where it re-freezes at the bottom of the freezer. Any ideas how to fix? Thanks!
There is a drain that should be visible just beneath the heater, it may be embedded in formed ice block. The drain is likely clogged and can be cleared by using a turkey baster with hot water to force water through it unto the pan underneath. ...

I have a Westinghouse side by side refridgerater with water and ice dispenser. The other day I arrived home to find water pouring through the back of the freezer section into the ice maker,and into ice container and out through the floor boards. I turned the water supply off., and cleaned up the water from the freezer etc,and defrosted fridge, and changed the water filter.I have had the water supply turned back on for a few days now, but it hasn't made any ice, and there isn't any water
Your water control has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other is the water disapenser. If the ice maker valve becomes mechanically defective the water valve can allow water to continue to flow or not flow at all. Replace the water control ...
Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Turned Whirpoll ED22PE off and moved to install new flooring. Put back to previous location, connected water and elect...would not make ice. Someone said it has a temp sensor and must be 10 deg b4 making ice...so turned back on, lowered temp, it made ice one cycle and now has water and ice splashed on inside of freezer. Turned off, thawed out, wiped all water out, got water out of ice trays with towels...turned on, waited until temp was stable and abt 5 deg's, turned ice maker on...make one tray
If the water valve is leaking a bit, it will cause freezeup, as will a flow restriction. The 'water splashed inside freezer' sounds like leaky shut-off valve.Sometimes those 'saddle pirecing' water shutoff valves get restricted, so you ar ...

Hi. You answered a question about a "sizzle" noise coming from the freezer of a GE Profile side-by-side. Your answer was "The sizzling in your case means that it is working....it is just water dripping from the cooling coil onto the hot element that defrosts it..."
I just want to ask an additional question. We have turned off the water to the 'fridge, because it started leaking water onto the floor. And the ice maker quit about a year ago. And then yesterday, the "sizzle" noise started ha
The defrost cycle happens 1-2 times in 24 hours usually, and lasts 20-30 minutes.at which time the cooling process starts again.you may or may not hear the sizzle during the 20-30 minutes.if the frezer-freezes and the fresh food section is cold enoug ...
Frigidaire FRS20ZRG Water is leaking from the internal lower vent area every 2-3 days. This in turn collects in the bottom of the freezer below the basket and freezes. Subsequent water than leaks over the ice, under the door & onto the floor. In an effort to correct the situation I turned off the water supply which did not help. I also turned the freezer section off for several hours to hopefully eliminate any ice buildup, but again no success.

The freezer compartment was icing up and water was draining onto the floor. I turned the freezer control to the lowest value.Then, after unscrewing the box at the back of the frig I cleaned the exhast line in the back of the unit which was plugged up. During this time I did not turn off the power or shut off the water line. After cleaning the "gunk" from the exhaust line, I replaced the cover, and turned up the freezer control. The freezer
Does the ice machine still sound like it is running. If not, you may have shorted the unit accidentally. I believe though that it might have just frozen over the water inlet so try defrosting ice cube unit again preferably by leaving it unplugged for ...
My IC6 icemaker jammed up and did not turn off the water over night. Water filed up the ice bucket, flowed out of the freezer, and damaged the kitchen floor. When I discovered it I opened the freezer, saw ice jammed at the back of the ice tray, knocked the ice away, and the water flow stopped. What caused this?
Hi,\015\012\015\012The reason this happens is because if the ice sits there too long it starts to merge together into one big clump. My old refrigerator also had a slight leak that would cause a drip right along the back of the cube holde ...

Maytag refrigerator My freezer keeps getting ice built up on the floor of the freezer (it's a side by side) and if I don't chip it away it will overflow water onto the floor. I turned the water off to the fridge and it still keeps doing it. I know the water is off to it because water won't come out of the water on the door. Where could the water be coming from? What could be wrong?
It may not be a water problem, it may be an air leak.\015\012If there is something that is keeping the door from total closing, ice will build up from moisture.\015\012check the gasket around the freezer door, or see if there is something ...
I came home from work and water was on the floor. The freezer was thawing all of the ice. Neither side is cooling and I don't know how to turn off the refrigerator or the water to the ice maker. I am an older woman and cannot move the refrigeraor out from the wall. I have pushed up the bar to stop the ice maker. When all of the ice has melted will water stop flowing into the ice maker? For the past 7 hours I have been dumping a huge stock pot of water every 20 minutes. HELP
If you can't move the fridge then look for your circuit breaker switches inside your home and find the one that controls your kitchen area and shut it off. This will cut the power to your refrigerator and stop the water from coming into the ice maker ...
Model SXD2252 side by side - ice repeatedly builds up in the recessed area of the bottom of the freezer even though the water has been turned off for several months. We often find puddles of water on the floor under the front left corner of the freezer.
What would generate this kind of water and ice, and what would you suggest for repair?
Ice maker not freezing the water. teeth still appear to be turning but water only freezing due to cold freezer. water mostly overflowing and forming icicles all over the freezer section.
have removed ice maker component and reseated connector but cooling element doesnt seem to be very cold
The freezer is supposed to freeze the water, the icemaker is just the form for the ice and the motor is to free the ice from the form, make sure water supply is cold water and not hot ...
Every time we turn on our ice maker it leaks on the floor and ice bulids up on the floor of the freezer. it makes ice fine and the water dispenser works fine. we have replaced the water line thinking that was the problem but it still leaks. this is a hotpoint side by side, any ideas to help us?
Most times the leak is caused by a defective dual water control valve but in this case it is obviously not the problem. Make sure your refrigerator is level front back and sides. If the problem is not cause by being out of level I want you to look fo ...

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. I spent a half day completely thawing the freezer by removing all frozen food, turning power to freezer off and using hair dryer to melt all ice including inside back wall. Still leaks. Also ice maker works but doesn't dispense. Doubt this is related to first problem but also would like to know if this is some sort of gear replacem
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.
Hi, It sounds to me like you have several problems. It would be easier to know if I were there, but no such luck. First of all with the water leaking out the back, is because the drain is freezing up and has no where else to go. The thermostat is fau ...

In the freezer there is a " grill" in the back wall and I can see a heating element. Water is seeping thru the grill into the bottom of the freezer and is collecting and freezing. Some water also makes it out onto the floor. Is there maybe a drain under the element that leads to the drain pan that might be plugged? If so, how do you get to it? Thank you, Ken
Yes there is. \015\012Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about \302\275" in diameter this is the drain tube. Try using a turkey baster to flush out the drain tube. You might ...

I have a 3 yr old side-by-side. The freezer is freezing ice cream solid even though it's turned all the way down. Food in the bottom two drawers on the refigerator side are freezing. Water has dripped under the fridge and has ruined my 80 yr. old hardwood floors. The freezer side is full of frost...even on the ceiling. I have turned the icemaker off and the leaking (underneath) seems to have stopped.
The vent on the fridge side, left of the top drawer, has ice on it. The wall below it

We have a new kenmore elite bottom freezer refrigerator and when I attached the water line it began making ice properly, BUT the dispenser for water on the front door also began a slow drip of water. It has a very small catch lip on the front door and I noticed the problem after it made a puddle on the hardwood floor. I turned the water off to avoid the slow constant drip. This means I dont have ice. Can you help and can I fix this myself?

When my icemaker goes to make ice water runs down the inside of the freezer and when the water turns on to make the ice water also runs on the floor. Do i have cracked water lines?
What you have is arced copper plate on the rear of the main drive wheel. Clean it with some alcohol. If you break the wheel or mount taking it off then buy another ice maker. Your control is supposedly non servicable anyway. ...
