Question about Refrigerators
I have been getting water leaking into the bottom part of the freezer side. Then noticed water on the floor in front of the freezer. Looking closer, it was coming from the bottom of the freezer door when it was opened. I thought I had a water leak from the water dispenser. When i started taking the freezer apart, I took the back panel on the INSIDE of the freezer off, and found the refrigerant coils covered in frost and some blocks of ice. Is this a sign of low refrigerant or could it simply be that everything needs cleaning real good? I've had a few problems with the water line, and had the fridge in and out from the wall but have never cleaned the back or underneath it. I'm wondering if a good clean will solve this or if I need to call a repair man. Thanks for any help
Water will not dispense into the icemaker. Water will still dispense from the door. Can you help me?

If you looked at the back section of the freezer (inside) and found ice then you need to completely defrost the fridge freezer. What you are describing is a frozen evaporator and the freezer needs airflow to work properly. If the unit starts behaving normally after defrosting then you need to monitor it closely as they will normally start playing up again after 2-3 weeks. If it does fail again then you probably have a defrost problem normally the defrost heater but can also be the defrost timer o defrost sensor. If it fails to reach temp then I would suggest contacting a decent repair guy who should be able to diagnose which one within a reasonable time. I would recommend defrosting first though because the same symptoms can happen when a door is left ajar. Hope the above is of some help.

Your dispenser door is possibly not closing properly. Also you may have a seal leak around the door When either of these happen the air from outside is drawn in and freezes on the surfaces tat are coldest, Thanks, Sea Breeze
