Use mild household cleaners. If you have a brown build up use vinegar to clean. Soak if needed. Good luck. Please rate so I know if I helped. Thanks.

My drip pan under the frig over flows with water then on to my floor. both fans work. Air flow from freezer to frig and back seams good. Tube going to drip pan is clean. Seals looks good and clean. MOD...


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

I have a kenmore cold spot 106.57026602 with no manual. The center bar between doors is hot and the ice maker is not working.


Sears Parts Direct has the manual for sale for $4.27. See part 1B here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10657026602/0582/0165000/K0704020/00001?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=10657026602 . Unfortunately Manage My Life does not have the manual as a PDF.

When a side by side is hot at the section between the doors, you need to check the condenser fan. It has probably stopped spinning when the compressor is running. Sometimes this is caused by the fan twisting in the housing and rubbing against something. Often this happens when you clean the coils with a vacuum. Otherwise, you need to replace the fan or fix the wiring to the fan. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10657026602/0582/0165000/K0704020/00011?blt=06&prst=0&shdMod=10657026602 for a picture of the fan.

For the icemaker problem, first check that water is reaching the unit. (Check the water line. Sometimes it will ice up.) Next check that the unit is getting power (it is an add-on for this fridge).

I hope this helps.

How long after hooking up ice maker does it take for the water to start running in. we have water in the door water just not in the ice maker?


Should have started to fill soon after freezer section reaches between 0° to 2° F (-18° to -17° C), ice maker fills with water and begins operating. You will have a complete harvest of ice approximately every three hours. The above was in the user manual and only answers when the process begins. There is a thermostat embedded inside the ice maker that tells the water control valve for ice maker to open for approx. 7.5 seconds. Because this model has a freezer below the left fresh food section light switch has an interlock that completes 120VAC to the ice maker once the fresh food section door is closed. Defective fuse, door switch or ice maker will make operation impossible until the problem is located. Please let me know if you need assistance beyond the above here.sea_breeze_27.jpg

I have a whirlpool side by side(ED25CQ) it isnt making ice, but water still comes from the dispenser. Is this a solenoid problem ? also 3 times in the last few days, I have found water on the floor and the...


1) There is a separate valve feeding the ice maker. It is triggered when ice maker t-stat closes and unit dumps ice. If the ice level sensing rod is down and there is no water in unit, it may have a bad stat or motor(usually unrepairable, need to replace unit) If turning, you may need a new fill valve.
2) If there is water inside the unit on bottom, you probably have a stopped up drainpan. Could be from debris, or may be frozen. located at bottom of freezer coil. If frozen, use a hair dryer to thaw(NO POINTY OBJECTS!!!) If not, inspect positioning of drainline.

Ice and water not working, then freezing in refrigerator, leaking


If the water tank in the fresh food section is leaking then you will need to replace it. the freezing in the fresh food section is due to the damper door not closing when it should. at the top left of the fresh food side there is a door that controls how much cold air it gets from the Freezer side. This door on your GE is controled by a motorized door witch is controled by a controlboard witch is reading sensors in your freezer and freshfood section for tempretures.

In short your freezing problem could be any of these:
temp sensor, Motorized damper door or control board. I would check the Motorized damper door first.

The water solinoid is not sending water to my ice tray


Had the same problem. As long as the ice machine is still moving, meaning its working but just no water is getting to the ice tray.  order part #2205762 valve, solenoid and change it out.  It is not hard to do if you pay attention to how you take the old one out.

GE side by side water dispencer area Leaking


1. How do I get repairs done under warranty?

* If your refrigerator is under warranty, you must use an Authorized Service Company.
An Authorized Service Company can be found by using our Service Locator. Enter your zip code on the Service Locator to get a listing of available service companies in your area.
* You can also schedule service by calling our toll free number:
800-374-4432 M-F 9:00am - 5:30pm.

Back
2. How do I order parts?

* Parts can be ordered through an Authorized Frigidaire Parts Distributor.
An Authorized Parts Distributor can be found by using our Parts Distributor Locator. Enter your zip code on the Parts Distributor Locator to get a listing of distributors in your area.

Back
3. Noises / Sounds.

* Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises.
The following can be sources of these noises:
1. Dish vibrating on shelf - move dish slightly.
2. Floor is uneven or cannot adequately support refrigerator. Use shims or extra support.
3. Items on top of refrigerator are rocking. Place a pad under the item or remove.
4. Refrigerator is not level. Adjust leveling legs or rollers as needed. Add shims in the back if floor is not level from front to back.
5. Refrigerator is touching wall or cabinets. See your owner's manual for space requirements.
* Snapping or clicking sound.
If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker the water valve will snap on when the ice maker is calling for water. This is normal. In some cases you may not have the water connected to your ice maker and the sound will be greater. In these cases, pull the wire signal arm (bail arm) on the ice maker in the up position to turn your ice maker off until the water supply line is installed.

Back
4. Taste and odors.

* Ice or food has a bad taste or odor.
Ice and uncovered foods can pick up odors or taste from strong smelling foods in the refrigerator or freezer. Cover foods tightly and discard old ice.
* Ice tastes like plastic.
Plastic water lines will give off a taste when first used. It takes one or two containers of ice for plastic to stop leeching. Discard initial container of ice after installation.

Back
5. Ice maker - not making any ice.

* Freezer may not be cold enough.
Temperature must be 5 F. or colder to work properly.
* Water supply valve may be blocked or restricted.
Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
* Water supply valve may not be open.
Find and open the supply valve.
* Wire signal arm on ice maker is in the up position.
This position shuts off the ice maker. Pull wire arm (bail arm) down to start ice making.
