Ice maker was hot and could hear water dripping on

Ice maker was hot and I could hear water dripping on a hot item in the wall of the freezer compartment. Back wall of freezer was hot. The sound was like water dripping on a hot iron and creating steam. I shut off he water and turned off the ice maker. The back of the freezer wall is now cold and the freezer works fine. Do I need to replace the ice maker. The model number of the Refrigerator is ET18ZK

Water is dripping into the bottom of my fridge. I have cleaned and vacumned the coils. How do I access the drain to see if it is frozen?


Remove the ice maker and back panel in freezer.1/4 inch nut driver to remove screws. there are 3 screws for the ice maker 2 on the back wall and 2 on the bottom panel. Use a hair dryer to melt ice block.All water will flow down into drip pan under fridge. May overflow use a turkey baster to remove water from pan. Pour hot water onto drain until the water flows freely into the pan.

Ice Maker leaks water inside the freezer


I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze

My subzero 650 ice maker drips water w/o making ice. Makes a mess with ice build up. I had to turn off water lined to stop the ice maker from dripping. Turning off the ice maker switch did not stop the ice...


Good day,
No, a new water valve should solve that problem. The diaphram in the valve is not completely closing.
Very common problem.

Thank you for using FixYa

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
