There are two places:

  1. Check to discharge hose underneath the unit. Sometimes this hose gets a leak.
  2. Check the pump (if equipped) and make sure it is working. I pour about 4 cups of water down the unit and listen for it to kick in.
  3. Unit is full of scale. If it is full of scale the water will "splash" down the evaporator and collect at the bottom door gasket and will appear to be leaking when you open the door.
Hope this helps and please remember to rate this!

Water leaking from ice maker


Make sure normal drain line (located under the ice) is not clogged. Check gaskets and seals. Also make sure everyone who uses it closes the door completely and does not leave it cracked open. And make sure no one has screwed any thing into it and punctured through it. A screw alone will not keep the water in.

Leaks water


I don't know what model you have but if you have the combo unit than check to make sure the drain line for the frig part is not stopped up. if just the ice maker than check the water supply line leaking at solenoid valve inlet side. Tighten or replace fitting, if not there than check water line leaking at solenoid valve outlet side, If so than replace water line and fitting.

I have a scotsman dce 33 it is 10 years old. Service man said it has a leak and is a sealed unit. I would need a whole new sealed unit. Could this be repaired by putting a valve in line, fixing the leak...


What I gather from the technicians remarks are the whole sealed unit and he leaves out the defined area of the leak. Sometimes leaks like this are really difficult to find and repair especially if the ice machine is still in use. To answer your question yes it most likely can be fixed if the leak location is found, fixed, pull another vacuum and recharged with Freon, If you have more questions I will be here to answer them for you, Sea Breeze

Not making Ice


Is the freezer at least 10 degrees? Is there water in the ice mold? If not put some to see if it will harvest after it freezes. If no water getting to ice mold Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear. The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

Ice maker leaks water into Ice bend. When it cycles I can watch it drip water from the ice maker.


not familuar with the brand but sounds like one of 2 issues
if it is overfilling making ice cubes larger than normal, adjust the ice maker fill time if it is possible
icemaker fills and cuts off but water valve seeps water after the fill causing the water overfill

Make sure the curtain is not torn and there are no leaks from the resivoir. If ok check to make sure you have enough water pressure to the machine. Make sure you have enough water passing through the valve during harvest cycle. To check... turn the timer cam to harvest cycle. Water should come in quickly behind the curtain on the right side and the timer should advance three minutes to freeze portion of cycle and stop running. Water should spray and form ice for approximately 25min. Then the timer advances for 5 minutes into harvest cycle and it refills with water again.
