Where does the water seep from?

The compression fitting you speak of is for the ice maker and through door water (if you have it.).

If water is on the floor, then chances are the drain pan underneath the unit has a hole in it, or for some reason, the water is not getting to the pan.

If water accumulates inside the freezer, check that the tube leading to the pan on the bottom of the refer is not clogged in some way.

If the water is in the refrigerator side, there may be a hole in the tank for the through the door water dispenser. It would leak everytime the icemaker dropped ice and refilled.

It may have been defrosting on a timed cycle when the compressor stopped. If any water was present at the time, it may have seeped into the electrics. Check the fuse and you have power to the on/off switch and thermostat.. If fuse blown, check all is dried out before plugging back in.

Every couple of days there is a puddle of water coming from unit..shut off water source and still leaked water?! HELP!


Is the hose from the freeze compartment in the drain pan? Or is the drain pan leaking? The unit is going into a defrost and that is where the water is coming from. It drains into a drain pan where it evaporates over time......Check the drain line and the drain pan. Is there ice in the bottom on the freezer maybe the drain is pluged inside and the excess is seeping out the door during defrost. Hope this helps....

Hello,

Move the refrigerator out from the wall and look for the location of the leak.

Step 2
Check the side panels and the seals around the door for beads of "sweat." This could indicate a condensation problem.

Step 3
Check the floor. A puddle there could indicate a missing or cracked drip pan, or a leak in the water line that feeds your ice maker.

Step 4
Check for water seeping from the front of the freezer or the refrigerator. This could indicate your defrost drain is plugged or your ice maker is leaking.

Fixing a condensation problem
Step 1
Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.

Step 2
Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets (see How to Fix a Refrigerator That Cools Poorly).

Step 3
If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls


Hope this helpout......

The line to our ice maker is frozen solid with ice. Do you know how to get the ice out of it? I'd prefer to not have to defrost the whole thing.


Pull the refrig out from the wall and you will see where the single tube to the ice maker goes . Try removing the line housing straight out the back , and thawing at the sink . Or , 2 screws hold the ice maker on . Remove the ice maker and thaw the line with a hair dryer . You will need to replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) due to a seeping problem . When the valve does not close completely , drops will seep into the fill tube and freeze , thereby , blocking the normal rate of water , entering the ice maker .

Gets stuck in defrost cycle, new thermostat already fitted


If you would like to stop the defrost timer from intermittently causing this, the defrost timer will need to be replaced. It's a simple part to replace and not expensive. Thanks, Sea Breeeze

Water is draining into my freezer


This water comes from the defrost cycle. The drain hole is probably plugged with food. The drain usually goes to a small pan under the condenser where it eventually evaporates. Look for a hole or slot in the bottom of the unit.

Water seeping out the bottom of my wine cooler


there should be a drain pan that you will periodically remove. Condensate (water) is a normal byproduct of all refrigeration devices. Also look for a drain fitting that you can run to a waste line.
