Question about Frigidaire FRS23KR4AQ Side by Side Refrigerator
As my ice maker fills, water is spraying down behind the rear panel of the freezer. Ice is forming around the blower fan, ceating a loud noise and stopping the fan until I take the rear panel off and chop the ice away. I don't know why the water is spraying down there (the spout does not appear to be cracked) and I wonder if the defrost should be melting this ice buildup in the first place. I disconnected the water line and plastic spout and could not find the reason for the water going behind the panel.
I would make sure the fill tube in the freezer is in the proper place on the icemaker. there is usually a slot it will rest in or on. If it is it the right place. The water valve may not be closing in time and allowing excess water to fill into the icemaker causing it to over flow. On some icemakers there is a adjustment screw on the icemaker to increase or decrease the amount of water that fills. If not I would check the valve and replace it if nessacary.

Sounds to me your model MSD2651HEB has two problems. If you
see icicle forming near
where the water enters the ice maker the problem is the water control valve is
defective and allowing water to enter the ice maker even after the ice maker is
already filled with the next ice harvest. To repair the ice maker overfill
problem you will need to replace the=> 67006531
Dual Water Control Valve
67006531 Dual Water Contriol Valve
. I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. Most defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers.This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down the rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. 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!
