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.

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE AND LEAKING


Your ICE MAKER may be blocked in some way [CLEAN water inlet lines &/or replace the in-line FILTER] OR the THERMOSTAT could be faulty [in an older unit]. Check all in-line water pipe connections for leaks AND/OR damage from any rodents you may have had in your home. This is particularly prevalent in tropical areas and when inlet lines are made from any type of nylon/plastic material. ALSO check your DOOR SEALS as this will sometimes cause this type of problem. It is also possible that the INSULATION in your older unit may be breaking down [you will notice moisture/"sweating" on the outer case surfaces which would indicate this type of fault].

I have a GE model TPX 24BPBA WW and have a water leak on my floor. I disconnected the icemaker water feed and leak stopped. What's wrong


do you live in an area where there are rodents such as mice ? if yes there is a possibility that they have eaten the plastic water line that feeds from the ice maker water valve to the ice maker itself . when they get thirsty you would be surprised what they will actually chew through to get water. regardless the cause, you probably have a broken water line between the ice maker water valve and ice maker unit .

Ice maker leaks water


The GE Icemaker has a center bottom plunger that drives the ice cube discharge tray up and down. If that center plunger oring has failed the ice maker will leak in a drip drip drip fashion. If it only leaks once every cube cycle then it is overflowing when filling. This can be corrected 2 ways. One is to turn of the water supply line and disconnet the water line on the back of the unit. Place the hose into a large bowl of some kiind and then have someone open the valve until the flow is full and then reduce that flow about 50 percent. Remember how many turns it took to get that flow and shut off the water supply line. Then reconnect the line and turn on the water the number of turns you counted when shutting off the water. The PROPER way of setting the water flow timing is to frome the front cover of the ice maker and turn the adjustment screw in the DECREASE direction. My suspicions are that the plunger o-ring is leaking. It costs nearly as much to have the service call to replace the o-ring as it does to replace the ice maker. Your choice but I would replace the icemaker if the plunger is leaking. (mid-bottom point of ice maker) Just note that once a leak occurs in the plunger area if the plunger has corroded the new o-ring will wear out rapidly.

Does anyone know how to fix an ice maker?


When the ice maker calls for water it pours for about 7 seconds if more will overflow and drips into tray , but the most common problem is the dual valve that leaks even after ice maker called for water (this valve is located in the back of the fridge at the bottom where the water line is hooked up.)

Amana SBD21VE No water to ice maker


your water line to the fridge is most likely leaking. You should turn it off right away. The line turn off is either behind the fridge or under sink. sometimes its in basement. The line is very easy to replace. You can get the plastic ones at home centers for under 5 bucks.

We have a leak in the back bottom of our refrigerator , ice maker


You say there was a new copper line attached? I assume that this means a repair has been done. If the unit has been slightly overcharged with refrigerant, this can cause excessive condensate to build up on the return copper tubing and would then drip in the back of the fridge. Or you should check on the drainpipe which often has a drainpan built either over the compressor dome or somewhere within the compressor area. Make sure the drainpipe is not missing the pan and that the pan is not leaking.
