OK usally this indicates that either your defrost drain leading down from the freezer has a blockage of ice, gunk or both. Unplug refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside freezer and on the back wall of many refrigerators.
I noticed you did not post your model number so I have to assume your freezer is on top above the fresh food section? If the water is trickling down the wall inside the fresh food compartment it is possible you have a small bowl that catches the water coming from the freezer and the drain line then turns and leads out of the fresh food section and down the back of your refrigerator. If yours does have that catch bowl this is the likely place for the drain line to get clogged. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrianAnd in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! This is a common tip so I will be placing this post and add as we go new ideas listed in Sea Breeze Tips Section. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Testimonial: "This helped me fix the problem. I removed the back panel in the freezer and I saw that the drain under the coil was frozen solid. So I just thawed out the freezer and job done! :) Sorry I didn't leave more info, not used to posting on here! Thanks."

My BI95 ice maker freezes and has water flow, the mould maker fills, the water continues to run into the bucket and it freezes solid. I changed the mould maker and water valve. The problem remains


If water keeps running after the fill cycle is usually indicates a bad fridge inlet valve. This valve controls the amount of water going into your icemaker. It is found where the water line goes into the fridge, usually in the back of the fridge at the bottom. You would need to cut the power to the fridge, turn off the water supply going into the fridge and remove a panel to get to it. You can check out online what a fridge water inlet valve looks like so you can identify it. It usually has 1-2 water lines going into it and 1-2 wire harnesses attached. You can buy new ones at a appliance parts store or online.

There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...


if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this helps.next time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

Ge ice maker is leaking water from the fill tube extension. water freezes and pushes tube out of refrigerator wall.


Your water valve is not sealing closed completely and allows drips of water to seep through and freeze inside the fill tube. Either your water valve is bad or you have low water pressure to the fridge. Turn the water supply off, disconnect from the fridge's water valve, and turn supply back on and run it into a bucket. Should be pretty strong flow. If its weak the fridge ain't your problem.

Ice machine will not stop filling with water...overflows


This sounds like a stuck water valve. Un-plug the fridge and see if the water stops flowing to the ice maker. If it stops, it's a control board (if equipped) or ice maker issue.

If not, turn the water off to the fridge, pull the fridge away from the wall, get behind it and trace the water line (small, plastic line) from the back of the fridge going down to the water valve. Remove the cover, and you may need to remove the water solenoid (the water valve) and see what happened.
