Water leaking from refrigerator

Hi. I have a moffat refrigerator, model #mrfw1888aw-1 that is leaking. There seems to be a spout which catches water in the fridge part (as opposed to freezer) and it is overflowing, sending water down the inside of the fridge and then leaks out onto the floor. My guess is that this spout may be building up with calcium. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Should be the water valve in the back. Over time the seals break down our debre in water will cause to leak. Sometimes new water filters will also cause small issues but shouldn't last long.

Fridge working perfectly... water leaks onto floor over night seems to be from underneath..


I would check that the water catch tray is on the compressor, this item collects the water from a defrost, it may be missing.

Leaking water in front left side


hi tom
yes the drain tube may be glogged and when the unit defrosts the water just flows to the bottom of the un it then eventally out, if you have a clogged drain, you will see water on a pretty reglar basis
8, 10, 12 hours
the drain pipe is behind the back wall on the freezer, if you take that off you will se an ice build up, remove that ice and clear the drain tube
you may need to pull out the machine and remove the tube from the back to ensure that it is entirley clear

The water supply line to the ice maker on my Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is visibly frozen, and will not supply water to the ice maker. How do I fix this?


With the information given , I would say to pull fridge out from wall , and remove the 2 screws holding the spout . Pull the spout out and defrost with warm water . Reinstall the spout and replace the water inlet valve . Valve had to have a slow leak for the tube to freeze . A model number would have helped to give a more precise answer .

Frezzer leaks into fridge


This is usual. In some refrigerators it is designed that way. It will keep the vegetables etc. in the fridge from drying out. Usually this spout is close to the back wall of the fridge. It is designed such that water drips directly to a small hall on the bottom of the fridge. It is important that you don't push the dishes or food in the fridge too far back. Otherwise water will be on you food. This spout should be far back as I mentioned. If, for some reason the water is dripping not close to the back, the spout may have beent damaged or bent. Check to see whether it is OK.

Mine leaks. Had leaked at other times but i took the vacuum cleaner to the front drain spout, that leaks into the removable basin. That worked in the past, but i't's not working now . The water is overflowing at the back of the catch tray and leaking out through the bottom underneath. The holes are clear, so it shouldn't be doing this. I am stumped.
