Turn off the water supply to the ice maker. If it stops the leak, look for a leaky O ring on the filter. There is a plastic hose that runs out of the front of the refrigerator and goes to the freezer door for the water dispenser. It has a connector near the freezer door lower hinge so the door can be removed easily. That connector can leak as well. There is a condensate pan under the refrigerator that may be over flowing too.
This tubing supplies the icemaker and cold water spout in the refrigerator. If you follow it back to its source (probably below the floor) you will find a shutoff valve. This valve usually is a screw-in with wings so that you can turn off with your fingers. Turn it clockwise until it stops. The water from behind the refigerator should have stopped. Now you need to determine if the nut clinching the tube to the fitting on the refrigerator is tight. This should be visible near the floor. If it moves easily, like with your fingers, this is the source of the leak and needs to be tightened with a small adjustable wrench or pliers. Then turn the water valve back on and verify it solved the leak. If the leak comes from the tubing itself, you will have to shorten the tubing to the leak or buy a hose to hose fitting if you have to keep the full length. The tubing will cut with a sharp knife, but make sure the valve is off before you try that.
you have a drain hose from the top back of the freezer down to the condensate pan on the bottom of the refrigerator near the floor
this hose is blocked causing ice to build up behind the rear inner wall.
remove the back of the freezer wall and using a funnel pour hot water in to the hose to clear the condensate hose also remove all the ice behind the wall; remove the back cardboard to see the water come through the hose into the condensate tray when you pour the water it should pour right through if it's clear
Leaky dispenser ??? Your water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out
of it and see if you have a slow drip. If so you need to replace the valves.
Hello it sounds like you have a leaking water hose which you need to find. maybe check first where it connects into the back of the unit.. Otherwise the fridge has a blocked drain in the freezer. cheers
first; turn the water of to the machine next, remove the water line in front of the filter using a large bowl place the loose hose into the bowl and turn the water on for a minute turn the water off and, check the bowl for particles then reattach the filter and do the same thing on the other side of the refrigerator if this water is clean the interior refrigerator filter must be checked usually it is the carbon filter inside the refrigerator that is bad you can find the drawings location and, procedure for this part at: searsparts.com
