SOURCE: hot areas around doors on LG fridge

This is usually caused by a dirty condenser coil or a stalled condenser fan.
Remove the cover from the rear of the fridge and see if the fan is running. If not, make sure nothing is stuck in the blades keeping it from turning. If it turns freely you probably need a new fan motor but you would need to check the voltage to be sure.
Post back if you have any questions.

Either the water filter isn't seated properly or there is a crack in the tubing or the water line isn't seated properly in the coupling behind the grill at the freezer door. Also, inspect for breakage in the line in this area as well (coupling area).

If you remove the back cover off the unit, you will see the compressor with an evaporator tray, make sure the little drain hose isn't plugged and that there is water in the evap tray from drain hose.

SOURCE: Maytag refrigerator is leaking water

Your freezer has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the unit. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your freezer,due to line freeze over. This can, also, cause a run-off, as stated in your post. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.

You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.



NOTE_It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice-maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re-tightening the screws.

I have a LG 26911 TT it does not dispence water but there is water leaking out of the bottom of the freezer door handle


the water comes from the house water through a filter then to the freezer where it is used to make ice and then chilled water goes on to the water dispenser. if you are making ice ok then the little tube that goes to the dispenser is broke or the valve that opens to allow water to fill your glass is broken or plugged up. You will need to disassemble the unit from inside the door... I sudjest taking a lot of pictures as you do the disassembly to aid you in putting it all back together.oh.. perhaps deforsting the fridge first might fix theproblem... if your lucky.

I need a replacement water line for my LG LSC26905TT. The line is cracked and when I try to dispense water the line leaks.Where can I look for this product? Thanks for any info. Alan


If the water is leaking from the freezer door hinge the door would have to be replaced as the waterline in the door is foamed in place.

If the leak is from the back where the plastic lines are they are replaceable.

Contact LG @ 1 800 243-0000 and give the exact location of the bad waterline since there a couple on the unit.

Make sure the unit is not all iced up, try to defrost it and then retry, turn off the ice maker and water supply before defrosting. Put a thermoter in the freezer to check temp.

Ice tray doe's not fill up with water to make ice


by chance what is the temperature in the freezer and also can you see the fill hose for the ice machine. sometimes they freeze solid and need to the=aw before they release any water. also the freezer compartment has to be around 0 for the ice maker to work

No Water


You may have a problem with a frozen water line inside the freezer door.  There is a heating element that keeps that water line from freezing but it apparently has failed.  It is not serviceable.  The whole door has to be replaced.

Is there ice build up under the bottom basket in the freezer??

sounds like the defrost drain is frozen up. especially since your cleaning up once or twice a day. simply defrost the drain and flush the drain line with warm water. you will likely have to remove the freezer cover inside the freezer compartment to do this.

if there is no ice build up under the baskets then its likely there is a leak in the water line for your water dispenser line that runs in the door. if thats teh case you will most likely need a service company to fix it for you..
