Its not possible for water to get in your pump, its a sealed unit, and runs in oil/gas mixture I would look for water in any motor relays, and wiring junction boxes.

try pulling out the fridge very slowly, any signs of hard resistance than stop. there should be a main water shut off back there. if still uncomfortable with this you can always shut the main water off to the house before trying. hope this helps.

I have a tall smeg fridge freezer. Freezer compartment working perfectly. Fridge not cooling despite all lights being on. I've switched it off then on, turned the thermostat down, then up again...


Hi Evelyn,
Has the freezer been defrosted lately? Perhaps a buildup of ice will not let the refrigerator cool sufficiently. Try this and let me know how it works out for you. If it does not have a self defrosting cycle on it, it may take some time, just do not use a sharp object in the freezer as this could puncture the freon lines and that would render the unit useless.

Your Ice maker may be the cause. if it is not holding water the water may be landing on the bottom and freezing, causing the ice build up and obstructing the air transfer from the freezer to the refrigerator. You can remove or replace your Ice maker. Then you will have to defrost your freezer to get everything back to normal.

Probably be cheaper to get new one, it has probably had the compressor fail or a leak in the cooling system.

Check the damper between the fridge and freezer. It may be broken or frozen open. If this happens and you have a water reservoir in the fridge then it could freeze and crack - leak and then flood your house... Shut off the water supply until you get the problem fixed.
