Hi, i would check the wire couplers for lose fit. If the wires are fine, i would test the current with a voltage test needle. If there isn't any voltage reading, the electric motor will have to be replaced.

Frigidaire glrs264za ice in freezer


The ice-maker supply line enters the back of the freezer near the top. There is a rubber piece that fills the ice tray, attached from the outside. If that is cracked you will have a leak. There is also a water line that runs through the refrigerator to the reservoir that supplies chilled water at the door. All of these lines should be checked for leaks that can drip into the freezer compartment.

Water & ice in bottom of freezer


Most likely cause is a blocked defrost drain line. The freezer has a defrost cycle which turns on a heating element below the evaporator to clear any built up frost or ice. This defrosted water should then drain through a plastic line to below the unit. Check for drained water in the drip pan or plastic moulded container over the compressor. If it is completely dry then follow the blocked drain line, clear it. If further assistance is required please provide details of What brand and Model your unit is? Hope this helps.

Dick,
Odds are your drain line is clogged. Often it is ice that is the clog. Here is what ya do: Empty the Freezer and unplug the refrigerator. Get a hair dryer and after removing the ice on the floor of the freezer and drying the bottom of freezer prop the hair dryer up inside a glass or ceramic (insulating) casserole dish pointed at the back bottom of freezer. Put hair dryer on hi and close the door. After about an hour (as you check in on it every ten min\'s) look for water dripping from the drain line into pan. If need be, use a shop vac to blow in from the top and draw (suck) on the drain tube at bottom. I bet this fixes it. Plug frig back in and observe over next week or so.

Ice maker stopped working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

My Kenmore refridgerator with freezer on bottom leaks water from bottom and I have ice build up in freezer and it's suppose to be a frost free freezer?


I had the same problem with my refrigerator/ bottom freezer. It is a Kenmore and would build up ice in the bottom and would eventually drip water on the floor in front of the bottom drawer. I solved the problem by doing a few different things. First I took off the back cover to see where the drip pan was located. Look for the drain tube that goes into the drip pan and in my case cut two plastic ties to gain a better angle for my next steps. I took a turkey baster and a cup of hot water and shot it in the drain tube several different times. Then I took a string trimmer line (pretty thick) and pushed that into the drain tube as far as I could get it and worked it back and forth. My final step was to blow air into the drain tube in towards the freezer at which point I could hear the ice in the icemaker blowing around. The following day the water was draining into the drip pan and not into the bottom of my freezer :>)

The feeder tube for the ice maker freezes and water leaks inside


First we have to determine if the problem is a faulty water valve. Reason: faulty water valve can continue to supply water even after the IM or door dispenser is finished calling for water causing a drip feed freeze up problem, or water overflow condition in the ice maker (IM). Another common cause is unrelated, but caused by a blocked drain line often resulting in thick ice build up on the bottom of the freezer, water dripping onto the floor, or water dripping into the refrigerator (top freezer mount models only) and freezing near the lights or damper ducts after defrost. Fix for this problem is to remove evap panel and clear freezer drain line with hot water or compressed air. If this is not the case, and water is dripping out of IM supply line, remove IM H20 supply line from IM at back of appliance and see if the water seems to drip out, if so, replace the water valve. If water doesn't drip out at all, replace IM, or IM module depending on the model of refrigerator that you have as contacts in the IM are also responsible for calling for H20 supply. You will have no more problems after this.

Water leaking onto floor


unplug it again , sounds like your drain line has frozen, instaead of defrost water going down the tube and under refrig in drain pan, becuse tube is frozen its draining into freezer compartment and eventually spilling out through front of unit. totally defrost unit and behind back wall of freezer youll see a metal trough designed to catch water, in the center (under the ice is gonna be the drain hole, pour boiling water down until it runs freely
