I have water that seems to be pooling under the removable tray on the water dispenser. If you remove the tray and put you hand in you will feel a gap on the anterior side. I think somehow water is getting in there. Then is is seeping our of the trim and starting to bubble the paint. I wiped it off think it was dirt and paint came off. Now daily there are two thin lines of dried water (white lines) coming out from under the trim. Could the water be coming from somewhere else? Have you heard of this before.?

Hello Frank, The line that runs from under the freezer door and connects to the dispenser is cracked or the connector is cracked. By removing the lower hinge cover ya should be able to see where the line connects to the door and see if it seems to be cracked and leaking their,if that connector is good then the line inside of the door is leaking..in some cases depending on brand the line is easily replacable without having to dis-assamble the entire door
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.
Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.
chute is probably clogged with ice. Remove ice storage container, look into chute (from inside) and see if you can see a build up of ice. If so be careful chiping it out. You may want to stuff a moist hot hand towell down in there first to soften the ice bond with the plastic, then while holding a bowl under the delivery area, try to carefull chip it out.
the tray is large enough for a normal defrost. if over fowing use a turkey baster to remove water . then ck to see why the water is not evaping . the fan in back may not be going . ( mouse in fan (commn ) if fan is ok just remove water and keep your eye on it . normal defrost is about 1 cup water every 8 hr's or run time . / pan hold about 4 cups .or more. water valve in back may be leaking into pan ( turn off water till valve is replaced . **** .
Hello there: I have written a few steps for you to follow and try ok?
have different ways to dispose of the water created during automatic
defrost cycles. The most common design routes the water down a rubber
tube on the back of the fridge to a tray beneath. This tube often gets
plugged with breadcrumbs, peas etc. and can generally easily be removed
Make sure the end of the hose is sitting in the defrost tray.
your hose was not plugged and you have found water running down the
back wall inside the fridge or a pool under the bottom crisper has
formed. Check if there is a small funnel located on the back wall near
the top inside the fridge. It can also get plugged; you can use a small
wire and work it in and out of the hole.
Some designs do run the water down the back wall and have a drain hole under the crisper, make sure it is not plugged.
I hope that this has been verry helpfull for you best regards michael
The leak is most likely coming from the defrost tray below the evaporator coils. A piece of ice or something is preventing the water from draining to the pan below your refrigerator. Unplug and remove the back panel inside the freezer. Any blockage from that tray will cause the water to pool out into the freezer or fresh food section. Thanks, Sea Breeze
Hey, thanks for the photos. Have seen this problem before. Seal the recess area, at the front edge and the front corners, with a little clear silicone, to prevent water from getting behind the stainless steel door panel. I've heard people say to seal the rectangular holes along the bottom side of the door panel recess cut out also, but that shouldn't be necessary, as if you still had water behind the panel, it would just then seep down behind the SS door panel and continue to cause problems. The real cure is to keep water from getting in there in the first place.
We also had this problem with a Jenn Air side by side. I cleaned out the drain tube and melted the ice in the collector tray but we still had water coming out of the freezer door later on. My wife started looking for a new fridge because she was tired of cleaning up the pudles daily. I went online to another site and found this to be a common problem. It seems the defrost cycle is not long enough to let all the water drain out of the collector tray and it ends up frozen in place and the the tube gets blocked and the the water runs down the inside back of the freezer untill it fills the the bottom of the freezer. Then it freezes and the the next time the water flows out the front of the door on to the floor. There are kits available to solve this problem and they cost about $20. I looked at what was in the kit and made my own part. It is a 9 or 10" long piece of # 12 or #14 copper wire (house wiring ground wire).
Turn off fridge and take the shelves out of freezer and then take off the large grill on the back wall and melt the ice in the bottom area where the metal water collector tray is. Look under the fidge where the evaporator tray is and make sure water is in fact running down the tube. To make sure it is, empty out the evap tray and put it back in and pour water into the defrost collector tray to see if the water flows down to the evap tray. If it doesn't then blow it out. If it does then take the copper wire and shove all but 2" of it down the tube that drains the collector tray. The last 2" or 3" of wire needs to be bent 90 degrees so that it lays flat in the tray. It seems the cooper wire that is down inside the tube conducts enough warmth from outside the freezer to keep the tray from freezing up to soon after the defrost cycle and lets all the water drain out down to the evaporating tray which is under the fridge. We never had water in the evaporating tray before because it was never making it down the tube. It has been many months now since my fix with no water on the floor.
