Question about LG Refrigerators
The back of the refrigerator started leaking in the past 5 days, specifically when the ice tray cycles and refills. I checked and found that the area that is leaking appears to be were the water is fed into the ice maker (vertically above the water line into the rear). I first attempted to fix the seal, but it seems that far too much water is coming back into this compartment. Planning to take all the items out of the freezer to see if there is an obstruction. There has also been persistent build-up of ice in the back of the freezer - but I wasn't sure if this was an aspect of living in humid Florida. Overall ice maker is functional, but I have turned it off until I find the problem. Any ideas on what to do?

Angels, sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear. Catriver..post back.

You may want to check that your water line isn't cracked.
Ours cracked and now we need to replace our floor. The water line is too close to the compressor which heats the plastic tubing and makes it brittle. Our refrigerator is 9 years old. Model #TPX24BRYFBB

This sounds like the float mechanism has gone bad. Remove it and have a look. It may be the float or the switch on it that is bad. There is also a solenoid valve. Parts kits are available. Shut off the water first!

This is most likely a blocked drain pipe - blocked with ice that is.
Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

I have a Samsung side by side - model RS253BAWW.
Water was leaking onto floor from main refrigerator, not freezer. It was determined to be a blocked defrost drain.
The repair technician removed the trays and food from fridge, remove the screws from the panel at back, disconnected everything and remove panel.
The stainless tray at bottom of fridge as well as panel itself had solid ice blockage.
He placed panel in sink and used something similar to a blow dryer with narrow hose on it to defrost both the panel and drain in fridge. Took him maybe 15 minutes and charged $99 total for the visit.
In future I will do this myself now that I know how but thought it may be useful information to others who are having similar problems.
