Water leaking under a fridge freezer

There can be 2 reasons for this ... the first is that the machine is causing condensation and is dripping on to the floor. Automatic defrosting fridge freezers do this but usually the quantity of water evaporates before any is on the floor.

If the Fridge / Freezer has an automatic Ice maker, or has a cold water supply, then I would suggest that there is a water leak to the system. In this case, find the water supply feed and turn it off to eliminate this as the source.
If this stops the leak, then either the supply is leaking or the problem is inside the fridge / freezer and you will need either a plumber or a repair man to fix the problem.

When i close the door on the freezer side the water trickles down the front panel

This could be a leaking water valve. First thing I would suggest is to turn the water supply off under the sink or behind fridge wherever its located and see if the leaking stops.If so then you'll need to replace the water valve on fridge. If this doesn't work look up inside the ice chute on front of door and make sure the flapper is closing all the way when you get ice. Warm air coming up into freezer because the flapper is not sealing tight can cause water to run down front of fridge.If this is the case there is usually frost buildup on the ice chute on the inside of door.

Fridge is freezing over and no water or ice.

I would check the main water supply coming into the fridge first. If there is water there then make your way into the fridge. Try to confirm the supply in the fridge by looking at the line into the fridge. If there is water there then you need to check the door switches to see if they are supplying power to the water solonoid. But if the fridge is not making ice also I would look at the main control to be the problem. But if the freezer is running too cold then the frost level in the insulation could reach the water lines and freeze them. But if the freezer is running too cold then I would again look at the main control as being faulty. No real way to test the control, unfortunately you just get to replace it. Hope this helps

How ro connect to water supply

Home Depot sells a kit for about $18-20 that has everything you need but a cold water pipe; you'll have to find that yourself. Connect the supplied tubing to the water fitting at the rear of the fridge, route the tubing (you may have to get creative here- I drilled a hole in the floor behind the fridge) to the cold water pipe. Install the valve onto the pipe with the clamp provided, connect the tubing, then tighten the valve stem ALL THE WAY til it bottoms. (It cuts its own hole this way) Open it back up, and you're good to go- you'll have to run the water or icemaker a few minutes to purge the air from the tubing, check for leaks and you're done.

It leaks water from underneath

If the water is coming out from under the fridge and you have a water dispenser or automatic ice maker, then I would suggest that you pull the fridge out from the wall and check the water tubing going to the back of the fridge. The tubing is connected with a compression fitting (a special nut that compresses the tubing to the fridge. There may also be a few more pieces of tubing on/in the back of the fridge with these fittings. Place you fingers on each fitting to see if it is loose or wet. If you find a wet or loose fitting, take some pliers and tighten it (snug it up, but not too tight because you can damage the fitting. Dry up the water. Watch the fridge for a while to make sure the leak is stopped. If you can't get it stopped, or if it gets worse, you can cut off the water (there should be a valve under a cabinet next to the fridge, or under your sink). You can get a replacement fitting at Lowe's2_bing.gif and they can tell you how to install it if necessary. If you have water pooling under your fridge and it goes up to the wall, then you should check on the other side of the wall for water also. This happened to our fridge, but we did not see the water in front of the fridge because it ran to the back of the fridge and under the wall into our carpet on the other side. Wet carpet is how we discovered the problem.

How to replace an icemaker hose

Turn water off from the supply. There should be a valve that the 1/4" water line connects to, if not you will have to shut off the water main. Using a wrench remove the nut from the water line connection (usually a compression fitting. You will need a need compression sleeve with the new line x2, one for the valve and one for the fridge. Next disconnect the line from the back of the fridge. Run the new line the same way the old one was run, for easiness. Make sure you leave enough slack behind the refridgerator to allow it to be pulled out and cleaned behind. Once all connections are tight you can turn the water back on and ensure you don't have any leaks. Hope this helps.

Water and Ice in Door Tastes Awful!!!

If your water tastes ok without the fridge then you'll need to replace or clean the piping inside the fridge.
If your water has the same smell and taste without the fridge then you'll need a better grade filter on the water going into the fridge.
If it's in your fridge piping try going to a plumbing supply and ask them for a cleaner to run through the fridge!

Water supply

Hi Don,

Cold water supply at Fridge location. Run 1/4" tubing and connectors to match the supply valve and solenoid valve on the Fridge. Should be just one tubing connection.
If you do not have a supply at your Fridge, you can shut off your main supply and tap into the cold water line and run you a supply over to the fridge. use 1/2" PVC pipe and fittings to route over to the fridge. Get a Threaded adapter to connect a shutoff Valve. This way you have a way to keep the main supply on and hook up the Tubing from the fridge to the supply.
