Ice maker leaks

Water drips into bottom pan down to where the auger turns. This refridgerator is about 12 years old. I don't have the model # yet, I'll get it later thanks. It might be the same one.

Water leaks


Need more information
Does the refridgerator have plumbing for water/ ice? Is the water connected? Check that fittings are tight and not leaking.

How old is your machine? Older refridgerator have a drip pan in order to be frost free. Drip pan could be not in correctly or the hose from compressor is not flowing to drip pan.

Is the refridge level?

What causes my ice maker to drip water?


HI,

This could be either the ice maker is old and the finish inside has depleted, the water valve is going bad or you had a jammed ice cube and now it overfilled. Many different reason this could happen. Does the ice cubes stick together with a bridge? Is the drip coming from the ice maker head unit? How is the ice in the pan its stored in, stuck together? In the pan, has the ice glaciered together? Need more information please. Thanks

I have a sub zero model 650 refridgerator. It is making some ice then it seems as though the water keeps dripping and it freezes up the shelves. Its like the water doesn't shut off when its suppose to...


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.
Thank you for using fixya

Water leaked from below refridgerator. Drip pan was not full. where woudl water come form and why? Unit is not eve 1 year old. mdel # KSCS 25 FVss


The evaporator coil is in the freezer. When it goes into defrost, that water should go down a drain in the freezer into the drain pan. Open the freezer door and see if there is any ice in the very bottom of the freezer compartment. If so, then the drain may be clogged and will have to be cleared. It is necessary to remove all of the racks and baskets to get to the sheet metal that covers the coil. Remove that panel to get to the evap coil and look below it to find the drain. It may be necessary to use a hair dryer to CAREFULLY melt any ice. Be careful not to melt the plastic liner. When you think you have the drain cleared, check it with a large glass of hot water.
If there is no ice in the bottom of the freezer, take the grill off the bottom of the fridge to see if there are any leaks under the fridge.
Could also be a pin hole leak in the water supply line to the fridge.

We are getting an overflow of water in the pan in the bottom of the refrig. What causes that and can the pan be removed to empty?


This may sound strange, but the cause of your problem may be your icemaker. The fill tube may be leaking before it gets to the ice maker and causing the pan uner the fridge to fill up too much. try turning your ice maker off for a few days and see if the issue stops. Or you can see if the tube is loose or iced up. If it is iced up, you may have a bad water valve. If you need more assistance, let me know. Hope this helps!

My refrigerator is leaking water underneath it. the ice maker is not hooked up


Is it leaking water INSIDE the fridge at the bottom - if so that is an indication of a clogged defrost drain - if you have a drip cup in your refrigerator, that connects to a tube at the back of your fridge, to carry the water from the defrost cycle down the drip pan at the bottom.

If you see water OUTSIDE your unit, the only explanation is an overflowing drip pan ! Water from the defrost cycle drains and drips on a pan that sits on the compressor or besides it - the hot air from the compressor will cause water in the pan to evaporate quickly - either through a fan or when the pan is placed directly above compressor. If your model has a fan at the bottom next to compressor, that blows the hot air on it, check to see if it's working when compressor cycle is on.
There is no reason for that drip pan to overflow otherwise, it is quite big enough, and the water from the defrost cycle is usually around 2 ounces and should evaporate quickly.

Why would water leak from the bottom of my GE refrigerator at least twice a day. Cannot ever locate the source and the water supply to the ice maker has been disconnected. That's another thing, The auger...


1. The water pan under the refrigerator is full.
This catches water whenever the freezer defrosts. Generally, the pan water evaporates and doesn't leak; however, the vents must be covered or something.
Pull of the bottom cover under the door and slide the water pan out. Empty it.

2. The motor nylon gear is broken. It is supposed to break in case a hand / finger gets caught inthe mechanism. It must have iced up and broken. It can be fixed.

I own a GE side by side refrigerator Model GSS22KGPD WW, Serial AG225890. This the third frig of the same model with the same identical problem. The ice cube dispenser on the door only gives crushed ice...


  •  if the cubes that the icemaker makes are full size then... the water valve on the back of the machine is usually the culprit in these cases. it will not close fast enough resulting in a little overflow of water into the auger assembly every time it makes ice. it only takes a little bit of water to settle in the bottom of the pan to cause problems. 
  • if the cubes are smaller than what you would expect then the water is leaking out right before it reaches the icemaker. either from the plastic tube behind the icemaker or the cup on the icemaker that funnels the water into the icemaker.
  • it also could be the timer inside the icemaker leaving the water valve on too long.
  • all these things can be tested on site. the service person must not be very well trained.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Water leaking from bottom of refriderator


Is this a self defrost refrig. if it is then it might be doing that, which then you might want to look for the drain that is suppose to drain into this pan. It might be missing the pan try that, let us know thanks.

GE refridgerator


If the unit has an ice maker or water dispensor, etc. there's always a chance a connection is loose or a valve is leaking by. If no other water is hooked up to the refer, then the defrost cycle water that should drain down to the bottom underneath pan is what is likely. You may have to take the inside rear panels off to see if the drain line is plugged up, that would allow water from the defrosting of the coils to drip inside the fridge vice outside like it should.
