SOURCE: Drip tray is overflowing water onto floor.

Hi Mickey, You have a bad water valve. Turn the water off to your unit and turn off the ice maker. Replace your inlet valve.

Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.


What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

My Samsung SRL550DW keeps cutting out. If you turn the power off it restarts and works fine and then cuts out again after a few hours. Is this a main PCB problem. Prior to this happening the door chim


I have had the exact same issue and its not a samsung issue but any modern fridge with a defrost system in the freezer (fridge doesn't generally frost up as its not run at freezing temperatures.


You need to check a few things:
1. Clear the freezer draws out and clear any ice build up.
2. Be careful and unclip the first white plastic vent panel (hint: pull from the middle an inch or two then push the sides in so the tabs are pulled towards the middle and the panel pops out)
3. Unscrew and unclip the 2nd panel (holds the circulation fan) to view the freezer coils - you will need to unclip the power for the fan and the heating coil for the drip tray under the freezing coils.
4. This is where the issue usually is:

If the tray is full of ice then do the following. If not and you can poor water through the drain hole on the bottom, then the issue is a dead sensor or control board - seek professional advice or if your game, there are swap out kits you can buy.

So the drip tray is full of ice ? Unscrew the freezer coils from the back wall but DO NOT touch it any further in case you damage it. There should be some silver tape tape that holds the tray in place - remove it and then gently lift the coils up to allow the tray out. If its too full of ice, use a hair dryer or warm water to de-ice. Once the tray is out, defrost it completely and dry it - be careful not to damage the heating wires under the tray as this is used to deice it during a normal defrost cycle. Clear any remaining ice on the coils or along the back wall - Dry it well.

Usually the cause for the drip tray to freeze up is a blockage in the drain pipe that empties into the back of the fridge. Unscrew the back panel and you will see 2 soft plastic pipes drain water into a water tray. pull both off and clean/inspect. You will notice they pinch in the middle to stop air getting back in, but allows water to drip out. If they are blocked, they will back fill the internal drains and freeze, thus fooling the fridge into thinking it hasn't defrosted yet and not turning the compressor back on. (Since this ice is hidden at the back, it is the last to melt thus the freezer gets warmer waiting for the insulated ice near the drain to melt.

When I did my freezer, the water is dripping out slowly (it was cold) but once I removed the pipe, it emptied properly. inspection of the pipe showed dirt/insect blocking the pinched section of the pipe.

Reassemble the pieces in reverse order, ensuring the water was been dried with a cloth. My fridge/freezer hasn't skipped a beat since.

Water is dripping from the bottom of the fridge (slow drip). How do I fix it. I have a Maytag French Door stainless steel fridge (4-year-old) with freezer on the bottom.


There should be a drip tray catching the defrost water... it may be overfull... Try to remove it and empty it. The tray is actually supposed to have a heat evaporator to dry up the water before it overflows. Your may be fuller due to excessive frost also... from hot temperatures outside or opening the fridge too often or for too long... good luck!

What I have seen in a thing like this is a simple water valve drip. Some of them drip like a faucet. This causes the cubes to stick together and all kinds of grief. I have your service manual.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the fridge. Why? It is destroying the wooden floor. Refrigerator is Whirlpool Model # ED25UEXHW01


Some water dripping under the refrigerator is normal. There is supposed to be a drip tray to collect it, and there is not so much that it can't evaporate. Check to see that the tray is still there, in the right place, and not cracked. If the drip tray is full of water, then you have another problem. If your air is humid, you would get more water during the defrost cycle and the water in the drip tray wouldn't evaporate very fast. If your freezer door seal is not air tight, you would get more water to defrost. My guess is, the drip tray is out of place or cracked.

Water Leaks from Ice Maker of Sub-Zero 642


Sounds like the water inlet valve to icemaker is leaking - not closing completely after filling the tray. Rare, but possible. Prove it by shutting off icemaker arm or switch. If that is the cause, the drip will continue.
If dripping stops when I/M is off, then it is ice blockage in I/M fill tube and or diverter funnel at end of ice tray. Remove I/M, clean ice from both, and re-assemble.
Replacing that valve (water supply to refrig connects to it in the back) should solve it.
