Jennair water leak in freezer with icemaker in door

Hi....I have a Jennair JCD2389GES with icemaker in the door....am having the same leak problem...intermittent leaking that freezes into a sheet of ice in bottom of freezer after leaking water all over my hardwood floors....could you advise exactly where this solenoid is located or send me a drawing or part picture...I am unable to figure out exactly what iIam looking for?...I have removed the back cover and see three water lines coming out of the bottom right rear side of the refrigerator....thanks.....mr g

There is a solenoid that controls the water flowing to the ice maker inthe freezer. It is usually near the bottom of the fridge on the back.It may be covered by a cardboard or metal back that is easily removedby taking off a few screws. There will be one water supply line cominginto it and one or two water supplies going out. When the solenoidbegins to fail it sends water to the ice maker when it doesn't need itcausing an overflow in the ice tray which leaks down into the freezergiving it a kind of glacier effect. Real easy fix though. Just replacethe solenoid on the back of the fridge. I bought one onlinefor around $20 and it is very easy to do. If you have water in the doorand an ice maker it will be a dual solenoid. Turn off the water supply,disconnect the water lines, take the solenoid off the fridge to getthe part number. Googleit, Get it, put it back in the way you took it out, turn the watersupply back on and your back in business without a costly ripofftechnician.

    I have a Jenn-air model JCD2389GES side by side refrigerator and it is accumulating water at the bottom of the freezer compartment which periodically overflows onto the floor. It appears to be leaking down from the icemaker. I tried to remove the ice trey to find the source but could not get it out. Can you tell me how to remove the trey (that holds the ice) and diagnose the water leak problem. Thank you

SOURCE: Frigidaire side by side, water leaking onto bottom of freezer

If you looked at the back section of the freezer (inside) and found ice then you need to completely defrost the fridge freezer. What you are describing is a frozen evaporator and the freezer needs airflow to work properly. If the unit starts behaving normally after defrosting then you need to monitor it closely as they will normally start playing up again after 2-3 weeks. If it does fail again then you probably have a defrost problem normally the defrost heater but can also be the defrost timer o defrost sensor. If it fails to reach temp then I would suggest contacting a decent repair guy who should be able to diagnose which one within a reasonable time. I would recommend defrosting first though because the same symptoms can happen when a door is left ajar. Hope the above is of some help.

sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak

Try to do a hard reset. Turn off the unit and unplug the power cable for several hours like 3-4 hours then check if that fixes it.

Water is building up on bottom of fridge


If you have water build-up on the floor of the food compartment, or ice buildup on the floor of the freezer compartment, you are probably suffering from either a frost problem or from a clogged defrost drain.

Remove everything from your freezer, including all food and any shelves. Do not remove the icemaker (if installed.)
Look at and feel the panel covering the bottom or back of the freezer compartment. Is it thick with frost?
On top freezer models, are the holes in the top of the food compartment that lead to the evaporator choked with ice?
Is there ice forming on, or lots of water on the ceiling of the food compartment?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, there's probably a defrost problem.
If you suspect a defrost problem, first remove any icemaker that may be installed. You will see a removable panel covering the entire back or bottom of your freezer compartment. There may be 6 to 10 or more screws holding it on. In some units there is a light socket attached to the panel; you'll see this arrangement most often in side-by-sides.

If you start to get an unusual buildup of ice in one particular spot in your freezer, especially beneath the icemaker, check for water leaks.
Water leaking onto the kitchen floor not traceable to one of the problems in Chapters 4 or 6 may be from a leak in the icemaker or door dispenser water system. Icemakers have a water solenoid valve mounted on the back of the fridge, usually behind the back bottom panel, and a water tube that leads straight up the back of the fridge to the icemaker. Door dispensers have a similar water solenoid valve with a water tube that leads beneath the fridge and into the door through a hollow hinge. If your fridge has both features, it's usually a dual water solenoid valve. It can be simple or not-so-simple to fix, but basically it's just a plumbing job.

Jennair jcd2289 side-by-side does not make ice


If you are getting water from the dispenser, then the water valve is good. The icemaker will need to be replaced since when the icemaker cycles and empties the ice tray, it should call for the water to refill and it is not doing so. Here is a link to the replacement icemaker.

I have an admiral fridge freezer model number GS2126CEDW.water keeps leaking from the front of the freezer and a build up of frozen water has accumalated at the bottom of the freezer.A person has advised...


hello again,

Sorry to hear that the drain is clear and not the problem, some of the other things that cause that water are;

Freezer door gasket...is it curled up in the corners espicially on the hinged side so air is leaking in and condensating resulting in water

The tube that send water into the icemaker is partially frozen so when water enters the icemaker it's being sprayed and dripping to the bottom(if thats the case ice would probably be built up all over the freezer)

The door for the ice dispenser isn't fully closing and will cause condesation just like the door gasket would

Good luck,
GENE

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Frigidaire frs26zthb3


icemaker is iver filling and running down through the freezer, some of the water runs out into the floor since the door gasket does not provide an water proof seal just an air tight seal

the ice maker can be adjusted, remove the cover off the frount of the icemaker and back the screw on the right side so that the indicator in the middle is twards the minus sign and you need to clear the frozen water out of the freezer drain pan so it can go to the drain pan down at the compressor
it might take a few adjustments on the ice maker to get it right
