Water tank inside fridge for water dispenser leaking

The water tank located inside the door of the fridge is leaking into the bottom of the fridge under the deli door and freezing. We had this same tank problem back in August of '06 and LG replaced it now 8 months later it has happened again and they offer no help since the warranty expired in Oct of '07. Not sure why it keeps happening or where I can order a new part. Thanks

Re: Water tank inside fridge for water dispenser leaking

Peah, I had a couple of these tanks leak. I think they had an issue with this. The last one I had they had a kit where the substitued coiled tubing with 2 john guest fittings to replace the tank. This solved the problem. The part number I have for the tank is 4838jj1003a, you can get it at for 17.95. I don't know if they will send you the tank or kit. You can inquire. back.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...

Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

You have a leaking water tank behind the crisper drawer. You will need to get back there to determine if the tank is leaking or the water connection is leaking. This will only leak if you close the door and dispense water from the dispenser.

The bottom of the freezer is filled with frozen water. Also, there is an occasional water leakage found on the floor at the front side below the freezer door. Do you have any advise on how can I find the...

This can be the drain of the auto defrosted water that is overflowing from the collection tank. This is normally located at the bottom of the fridge and a little above the compressor in some cases.
So you will need to move the fridge forward to check on the bottom side of the back of the fridge.
The water can be drained out of the tank and reset.

Refrigerator leaking water

This sounds like the water line from the icemaker and the cool water reservior inside the refridgerator side. The line is a rigid plastic hose and could be a leak at one point that is small enough to allow water to run along the line. Also sounds like you have a humidity problem. Check the door seals and wipe them off and apply a thin coat of die-electric grease to the seal. this will help keep it pliable and soft.
The water in the bottom leaks into a trough that is made into the fridge. This usaully evaporates, This is for the auto-defrost. It keeps the water from getting on the floor.
Check to see if the outer door gets hot at the edges. If not, It may not be auto-defrosting.
I would first check the water line first as this seems to be a more serious issue right now. The line is probably loose at one of the connections between the ice maker and water reservior.

Leaking water

the water reservoir tank could be your problem, take out the drawers and operate the dispenser and see if water is leaking from it. if so replacement of the tank is very easy

Not getting cool water from dispenser in door


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

Water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer

I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.

Water dispenser leak

I think I would think about getting a new one. It would cost more to fix it and then you may not get it back together so it wouldn't leak.
