Sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Problem, fridge over a period of a few weeks or less goes from really cold to not so cold with ice buildup on the ceiling of the fridge section beneath the freezer compartment which itself does not ke


Hi, This will happen if you have a faulty defrost timer or the the heater is not working when it goes into defrost. The reason its not so cold after a week or so because the ice builds up & doesnt run efficently which is why when you switch it off & defrost it works great.

A lot of water leaking


You probably have a clogged drain line. Unplug the fridge for 24-48 hours with a towel by the drip pan for a simple fix.

Water is dripping into pan under fridge and overflowing onto floor. looks like water is dripping from filter at bottom. what can i do?


Check to see looks like the container is already full. You have to remove the tray full of water and then insert it again. It will happen again and again ( overflowing water) so you need to periodically check the container pan if water is full.
Also by checking periodically that pan, you will minimize rust build up. You will need to wipe around it with soft cloth or rags so the body of your refrigerator will not decaying due to rust built up. This will destroy the metal parts of the fridge.
Good luck.

Water dripping insie the fridge


Hello,

Water accumulating on the ceiling of the refrigerator is usually caused by a clogged drain in the freezer section beneath the evaporator. The clogged drain will cause water from the self defrost cycle to leak into the divider between the freezer and refrigerator. This water may then freeze and cause condensation build-up on the refrigerator ceiling. The solution to this problem begins with unclogging the drain. It may also be necessary to remove the entire freezer/refrigerator divider to thoroughly dry the insulation in the divider. Occasionally the insulation needs to be replaced to prevent a recurrence of the problem. This can be a big job – you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

My Frigidaire side-by-side leaks inside, from water filter


the gasket that holds the water pressure in between the water inlet line and filter is not in proper position, or your filter sir is nt properly inserted into the slot,the cycle starts when the water comes in,pressure will build up and it will start t pass in between the gap, as the pressure goes down, dripping will stop, then cycle start again, check the connector sirandhose connected into the filter

Whirlpool ET1FTKXK Fridge not working


The reason you had water dripping from the top is the frig goes into a defrost cycle every 12 hours or so and melts the ice build up. Now your drain line for the water to go down to bottom of frig is plugged more then likely with ice. Take the cover off back of freezer and get some salt table salt be good. And put it in the drain hole located roughly in the center of freezer cabinet. That will take care of the drain quick. Now notice to see if the fan on the inside of freezer is on. My hunch is that it is not turning. You can replace the little fan motor make sure you don't damage the fan blades you will re-use them. Be sure compressor is on cause the fan only works when compressor is on. Let me know what you find out.
