You probably will have to replace the water filter housing that holds the water filter. This is an relatively easy job and should only take about 30 min. The housing will cost around $40-$50 online or from your appliance store. Turn off the water to the fridge. Take the top shelf out of the fridge to access the water filter area. There is a small screw in a really deep hole on the bottom of the cover, just to the right of the filter cup. I used a really small socket (9/32",1/4" or 9mm - can't remember) and extention. Take out the screw which will uncover the housing. The water hoses (white) just slip onto the housing - check these to verify if they are on tight. If they are loose this is the water leak. if they are on tight (which I'm sure they are) then proceed. Take off the filter cup which is screwed onto the housing. Remember "righty tighty - lefty loosy". Take another small screw (maybe two) out which holds the housing to the refrigerator. Now pull the water hoses off the housing. This is kinda tuff because the hoses are just slid on to the housing and are held on by friction only and its hard to get a good grasp because of the location of the unit. You can't really stick much under the hoses to pry them off either because if you damage them, they won't hold the seal later. Just pull and twist and they should come off. Visually inspect the housing unit, you should be able to see a crack if there is one. Replace if necessary. Just make sure not to overtighten the screws and especially the filter cup when reinstalling. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Front door of side by side is leaking water


Hello there and welcome to fixya
ok on these units there is a plastic clear water tube that is connected to a push /pull type connection under the door that will need to be checked out to see if it is leaking
Furthermore Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment.

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE AND THE WATER IS LEAKING INTO THE BOWL


if water was leaking consistently then you would have an issue with the water valve in the rear of the machine whereas if it were overfilling the icemaker ice tray this would be a seperate issue with your icemaker and you would have to replace the icemaker best thing to do is turn off the water line that comes in from the rear of the machine There are no repairs for the icemaker that I would suggest seeing how it would cost you 4 times as much to do a repair to an icemaker rather then just buying a new one if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick

Not getting water to ice maker and water dispenser


No model # to reference. Althou alot of issues might cause problems, some are really mondain. (e.g. is the valve on, has any plumbing work been done recently, if inline filter how old is it). Checking fill valve, access valve area, remove from bracket remove tubing and wire connectors from valve. Use jumper cord and power each valve solenoid put valve output ends in glass to test. If valve sends water from each valve if OK keep looking. If refer has internal filter, hook all back up to test. would need model # to give more help.

Water is leaking around the water filter area


take and shut off the water to the unit then take the filter base off so that you can see where the tubing goes into the filter. you may have to replace the tubing if it was cut during the move.
