Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer. If this repeatedly happens with yours, you may can prevent it by taking a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.
Your ice maker is another issue. Describe the problem in another post.

Hotpoint CSX22BC Fridge leaking water from the freezer door. Water isn't coming from inside the freezer - its coming from the door itself. If you open the door you can see drops of water coming from the hinge and also the seal that is on the corner of the door. The ice dispenser in the door seems to have gotten frozen up and won't dispense ice - but it has been that way for years.

We have a TFX25JR side-by-side with ice maker and water dispenser; had water leaking on floor on freezer side of bottom left corner.

Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
We have a side by side Amana Refrigerator Freezer. It is model SXD22S2L. We started noticing that the things in the door of the freezer were not frozen solid. Like cans of frozen jucie were not frozen, just liquid. The meats, etc. are still frozen but some bags of frozen blueberries, biscuits, anything soft, is not freezing. It is also not making any ice. The water dispenser for drinking still has water coming out. The refrigerator seems to be fine. What do you suggest?

Where is the Dispenser Board located on a GE Profile Side-by-Side refrigerator? When we tried to get cold water through the freezer door there was a "pop" sound and now the dispenser/night light won't work, the water dispenser won't work and the ice dispenser won't dispense ice through the door. The refrigerator and freezer seem to work fine. Do you think the Dispenser Board might be fried?

The ice and/or water won't stop coming out the door when the back soft panel area is pressed. Either ice or water keep coming out when the back is pressed with a glass until door is opened.

My daughter left the freezer door open overnight. Now the ice maker won't dispense. When I push the dispenser on the door front (with ice container removed and holding door close actuator so as to allow to operate) I can hear the motor running, but shaft on rear freezer wall that connects to the dispenser in ice maker doesn't turn. Could water have gotten in it during thaw that has now refrozen? Should i unplug and defrost to let it melt?

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser "stuck" on but this morning I saw water dripping out. I opened the door and water was running down through the inside of the freezer and coming out through the bottom door seal. The water dispenser and the ice maker appear to be working properly. Please give me your thoughts...

Samsung RS267TDRS Refrigerator -- no water coming from door dispenser. Water line to back of fridge works fine. Water filter inside fridge fills with water, and it makes ice like clockwork.

The ice maker in the door of our Samsung RFG298 has stopped making ice. The water dispenser in the door works OK and the ice maker in the freezer is making ice OK. Periodically it sounds like the door ice maker is trying to dump ice into the bin but no ice comes out. There is no water leaking into the bin either, so I wonder if water is flowing into the ice maker.
I have a Hotpoint HSS25GFTA WW Fridge that has side by side doors with ice/water dispenser in the freezer (L) door. I still get ice fine but my water dispenser has 'died'. The water has always come out tap temp so I doubt the line is frozen. I have seen some talks on solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. Where are these located, how do I access/remove/replace them and do you have a part number? I am assuming that this is my problem. Thanks

Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator water dispenser is not working. The ice maker is hardly making any ice but there are a few cubes that have come out. I defrosted the refrigerator last night as I thought the line was frozen but still not working. The temp in the freezer and refrig sides are adequate. The water seems to be the problem. I checked the filter, checked to make sure the line wasn't kinked at bottom left or that the "dispense lock" was pressed. Water still won't come out. Any advice is

With our new home, we inherited an RCA No Frost MSX22GR side by side fridge with ice maker. Occasionally, water drains from the bottom of the freezer side and leaks out the door. It seems to be coming from a drainage hole in the bottom rear of the freezer compartment, water drains under the bottom pull out basket as overflow? Freezes then when next cycle for the ice maker, the excess water flows out the door. How do I fix this?
3 problems. 1, vegetibles are freezing. 2, water dispenser on out side of door sometimes works and sometimes does not, and 3, water leaking on left side of ice maker or at least i see water freezing down the left side of the freezer starting from between the side of the freezer and ice maker. in regards to first issue, i did take the damper apart and the door seems to be work. it has resestance from the motor when i move it. thank for any ideas. rob
