LG lfc25776ST - Leak out of rear of fridge

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?

SOURCE: water leaking onto floor

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.

SOURCE: Leaking icemaker

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

Good luck

SOURCE: Ge profile side By side ice maker water leak

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!

SOURCE: bosch fridge freezer - ice build up and water leak from freezer

Hi,
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.

SOURCE: samsung twin door fridge water leaking onto floor

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.

LG LRBC20512SW - line icing up to compressor - loosing gas


You may be able to hear the leak but the chances you'll see it are slim to none. Also if it's a bad leak the freon could all be gone now. Usually when a unit is low on gas the compressor will short cycle. Otherwise your unit might just need a good thorough defrost. If the compressor is running and not short cycling my money's on the defrost.

There is a leak somewhere in the refrigerator causing water/ice to accumulate in the bottom of the freezer. Husband says it is not the icemaker itself that is causing the problem.


There may be a vent hole at back of fridge, some fridger like mine have a drain hole to vent moisture out through a pipe to drain on top of rear tray for evaporation.

Freezer is leeking water, after being clogged up by ice for days and fridge at room temp, no matter what setting it is on


The leak can be due to overflow of the defrosting water from the freezer coils. It can be leak from the collection tank or from the tray or the flow tubes.
make sure that the defrosting timer is working fine as if it is not defrosted accoding the set 8 hour cycle there can be more frost build up and also cause lesser cooling on the fridge.

Leak from the ice maker


I would first try to determine if the tray is level. There are usually screws that allow some side to side adjustment.

If the tray itself is actually leaking, you probably will have to replace the icemaker unit.

Freezer leaking water


My Whirlpool has been filling the bottom under the crispers with water and leaking out the vents (?) from the freezer down into the fridge compartment. I finally caught it today being rather loud, probably in a defrost cycle, and it was positively POURING in the fridge. After some more research on this site I removed the freezer bottom tray (1/4" ratchet needed) and found a layer of 1/2" thick ice under the tray. My guess is the drain hole iced up. Removed all the ice from under the tray and on the metal drain run in the back (danger, seemed sharp) and put it all back together. I didn't try to pour hot water down the drain yet, thinking positive thoughts that the drain itself isn't iced all the way to the tray near the floor. Will watch it carefully.

Icemaker leaks into freezer compartment


MDG,
Sometimes the drainage inlet for the defrost can get clogged and then the frost has no place to go (usually an evaporator pan at the base of the fridge) have you ever felt the side walls or within the fridge and it was warm? When it is working the tray heats to rid the fridge of the frost. The DYI solution is simple but can be frustrating. If the freezer is on top and you can remove the drip tray and the contents for that matter and see the inlet all the way in the back most likely covered in ice, turn of the fridge throw a bunch of towels togeter with sponges and buckets and le the fridge thaw out for the day sopping out all of the water. If you can get to the inlet squirk some hot water with a turkey baster down into the hole and listen for the flow out into the bottom into the tray. Take the back off of the fridge (or access panel at the botom) to see the evap tray. If it is totally dry and looks like it has been for a while then it hasn't been draining. Usually unless a waterline is leaking or broken ice formation is a faulty defrost, huge amounts of continuous water is a leaking suply line. The frustraing part of the DYI solution is if you don't get the blockage free from the line (usually a clear tubing that emties into the evaoprator tray) and put everything back together and restock the fridge about a week later it will start icing up again.
